As a small business owner, the safety of your customers, employees and assets is one of your main priorities. While you might try to keep an eye on your business all day, every day, that’s just not possible. That’s why it’s crucial that you have a security system installed and monitored by the professionals, so you will have a partner who can keep a watchful eye on your business 24/7/365.
But if you do want to keep a watchful eye on your business there is a fantastic tool that can be used as a part of your security strategy; and that tool is Total Connect. What is Total Connect? It’s an app that can be used on a computer, tablet, smart phone (and even Apple watch) to remotely control your security system and other Z-Wave® enabled devices.
Let’s take a look at the ways Total Connect can be used to help with the security of your small business.
Monitor Vulnerable Locations
Are there certain areas of your business that don’t see as much traffic as others? For instance, stockrooms, docks, or infrequently used doors. Or perhaps you have areas that could use a little extra protection, like cash registers or main entrances.
With the help of connected portable indoor and outdoor cameras placed strategically throughout your business and the Total Connect app, you can easily keep an eye on these more vulnerable areas. Total Connect allows you to access and watch live video feed from up to 6 different cameras.
Deal With Shoplifting or Employee Theft
As much as you might like to completely trust that your customers or employees are always doing the right thing, it’s inevitable that at some point someone is going to do something that makes them well, a little bit less trustworthy, like stealing.
According to the National Retail Federation, shoplifting and employee theft cost U.S. retailers almost $50 billion last year. Don’t add to this number! Use Total Connect’s video monitoring capabilities to provide visual evidence to help with the apprehension, prosecution and recovery of stolen goods.
And should an emergency situation occur….
Total Connect can help make the process of dealing with the event go a little bit more smoothly and efficiently. If an alarm is triggered, the Total Connect app will immediately send you an email notification, text message or video notification.
