/ Remote Security Management: Hot Trend with “Staying” Power /

Until recently, staying in control of your business while you were “out of the office” was essentially limited to phone, text and email communications -- never giving you a complete picture of events at the workplace, much less the ability to manage security and business operations remotely. Now, with remote security management -- one of the hottest trends in business security today -- there’s a whole new array of management and control possibilities at your fingertips. It’s a versatile solution that puts better management control and flexibility in the hands of business owners and managers.

Stay in control from anywhere: Remote security management allows you to use your iPhone, iPad, Android or other web-enabled device to stay on top of your business, anytime and anywhere. With real-time alerts, arm/disarm capabilities, access management and live video look-in via your Smartphone and other devices, it gives owners and managers new capabilities to enhance workplace safety, protection, loss prevention and business productivity -- enabling new ways to manage and optimize business processes, in addition to better controlling security.

Going beyond security to “business optimization”: Remote security management is an example of an important trend that’s shaping business today: the move beyond security to business optimization. Through the integration of video cameras, access control, intrusion detection and other systems, companies are finding new insights into areas like business operations, customer interactions and workplace efficiency. Using remote security management, in conjunction with the security systems your company already has in place, provides more insights into your business, enhanced control over your operations, and enhanced management and workplace efficiency.

The case of the “after-hours delivery”: Consider the basic example of accommodating an after-hours delivery by trusted key supplier -- or the ability to monitor after-hours access and activity by employees. With remote security management, combined with your intrusion and video systems, you can receive an alert of the delivery, disarm the system to allow delivery access, view the delivery on video, then arm the system when the delivery is done -- all remotely -- from your Smartphone or tablet. It’s a great everyday example of how remote security management helps you work smarter.

Remote security management lets you customize your instant alert preferences to receive notification whenever specific events occur at your business. You can receive alert notices whenever specified systems are armed or disarmed; when motion is detected in a sensitive area of your facility; when an alarm occurs; or when personnel are coming and going after hours. From there, you can use remote security management for a live video look-in -- allowing you to see what’s going on at your business at any time of the day or night -- whether you are across town, across the globe, or just in another part of your facility.

A management friendly tool and healthier work/life balance: For business owners and managers, remote security management facilitates the ability to better manage their business, while creating a level of flexibility and efficiency that enhances their personal productivity and freedom. While it is impossible to be in two places at the same time, remote security management gives you the critical ability to know what’s going on in your business even when you’re away -- and to do something about it from the convenience of your handheld device. Remote security management technology works with many of the security systems you already have in place. In this way, it allows you to leverage the investment you’ve already made in security systems, turning them into a tool for business optimization and increasing your ROI.
