TOP 5 WAYS TO MANAGE MULTIPLE BUSINESS LOCATIONS WITH ALARM.COM


As your business grows, so does the work it takes to manage it - especially when you scale up to multiple business locations. 


The complexities of adding new stores, restaurants, warehouses or other premises can create an overwhelming workload (or worry-load) that you'll need to solve. This could mean a new hire, or a new technology solution to help you scale more efficiently. 

Alarm.com for Business, with its award-winning multi-location management features, should be at the top of your list. It reduces complexity by giving you and your team a single point of control for essential functions including security, employee access, video monitoring, and energy management for every location in your business. 

Whether you're managing two locations or two hundred, using Alarm.com for Business to take care of them will save you time, money and worries.  Here are five big benefits you'll discover. 

1: Automatic security lets you "set and forget" at scale 

Protecting your people and property is a complex task that Alarm.com makes easy. Our automated security safeguards, which include automatic system arming and door locking at closing time, only need to be set up once. Once Reed Security adds Alarm.com technology to your latest location, it takes just seconds to automate its security by applying the rules you've set up for the rest of your business. 

This doesn't just apply to the alarm systems across your business. You can quickly create cross-location rules to regulate employee access, get activity-triggered smartphone alerts, or save energy by automating your Alarm.com smart thermostats

2: Access control with user codes improves and streamlines your security 

Outdated access technology weakens your security and gets harder to manage as your business grows. Our smart access technology does the opposite, protecting your business with centrally controlled smart locks, easily managed user codes, and the option of a full keycard-and-reader solution. A single login is all you need to control employee access anywhere your business. 

Alarm.com user codes are easy to set up, revoke, and manage in bulk.  You can assign employees to customized access groups, with pre-set permissions determining which location(s) they can access and when—enabling you to streamline and scale your access control to tens or hundreds of employees. 

3: Smart business alerts keep you on top of any emerging issues  

Unlike traditional security technology, Alarm.com for Business is proactive, alerting you to problematic or unexpected activity at any business location, even when disarmed. The more locations you're taking care of, the more valuable this becomes. 

For example, you can set up a single "late opening" alert, then apply it to every location—eliminating the need to check this important detail for every location, every day. You can know right away if a door is propped open, if an off-limits area is accessed, or even if a thermostat is tampered with. You can also set up highly customized video alerts to capture specific activity—take a look:


4: Multi-location video gives you a real-time view of everything 

The bigger your business gets, the more important it becomes to see what's going on. Alarm.com gives you a single video monitoring dashboard that combines security camera feeds from different locations, side by side, making it easy for you and your team to stay on top of things.  

With four video streams on a single screen, and the ability to set up and toggle between custom, multi-location video groups (e.g. "front door cameras", or "kitchen cameras") it's simple to monitor activity across your business in real time. 

5: Customizable permissions let you delegate with clear boundaries 

The bigger your team, the more you'll benefit from Alarm.com, especially when you delegate its different functions to managers, or to specialists like a loss prevention officer. With multiple levels of user permissions, Alarm.com makes it easy to give team members access to the features they need, and no more.

 

You can give a manager the ability to set up or revoke an employee's access, but only at that manager's location. You can give your loss prevention specialist access to every security camera feed without giving them control of your smart thermostats. As the primary account holder, you'll always retain the ultimate ability to increase, decrease, customize or remove your team's permissions.

GET AFTER SCHOOL PEACE OF MIND WITH SMARTHOME TECHNOLOGY


Smart home security is a back-to-school essential for many working families with older children. 

With an array of after-school safeguards for your kids, it delivers peace of mind throughout the school year and for years to come. Your kids can even grow into it as they become more independent.

Fewer keys means fewer worries 


As soon as your kids are old enough to arrive home on their own, Alarm.com starts making things easier with keyless smart locks and user codes for easy access. 

Unlike keys, user codes can't be dropped, lost on the bus, or left in the door. If forgotten, its owner can ring the doorbell camera and you can unlock the door from work. Like a set of keys, however, your child's first user code can still confer a sense of responsibility that they'll love.

Technology makes check-ins less challenging 


With every school year, your kids grow a little more independent. Meanwhile, you worry just as much as you ever did, and you need to know they're okay after school. 

Your Alarm.com app is here to help, offering peace of mind via quick, visual check-ins. You can see a quick snapshot from any Image Sensor, view a live feed from your indoor or outdoor cameras, and even get front-door video clips of your kids arriving home. 

If you prefer a hands-off approach, Alarm.com also offers a range of custom alerts for specific activity and events, such as the kids not arriving home on time, or even the video game cabinet being open for too long.

Smart reminders ensure that your house stays secure 


As kids get older, they have more going on, which means they forget things. Unfortunately, this often includes securing the house when they're last to leave. 

Alarm.com can help with actionable smartphone reminders. Once your teens have their own Alarm.com app, your house can remind them directly if a door isn't locked, or the garage is open, or the security system isn't armed when it should be. They'll be able to fix things quickly with a remote command.
