Securing your business during COVID-19 should not overwhelm you. Social distancing and working from home might keep you away from your business. But that doesn’t mean your business security system gets a break. Don’t forget, PELMAC surveillance and security systems can have several features built-in making it easier to protect your business while you’re not there. Here are a few tips to consider.
Many alarm control panels feature a programmable function to automatically unlock your business entrances at the start of the day. With Schedule Override, you can easily overrule the programming to keep your doors locked until somebody with proper authorization presents their credential. And keep in mind, this feature can also come in handy during weather events when you can’t make it in.
Schedule Override can give you peace of mind during these uncertain times and assure your business is secure.
Set users as “INACTIVE” with virtual apps or web browsers.
If any of your employees become quarantined, you may want to limit their access into your business. For furloughed and quarantined employees, remember that you can use remote access features to change those employees’ profiles to “Inactive” during their temporary leave of absence. Don’t worry, we save all of their profile settings and User Codes. Once they return, a few simple clicks is all it takes to reactive them.
Use “Grant Door Access” to moderate entry.
This handy feature is especially important in light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendation that you limit the number of customers to no more than 10 at any time. From behind your counter, desk, or big screen, you can Grant Door Access using a variety of remote access options, allowing customers to enter, one at a time.
Video Surveillance Cameras
Surveillance cameras are essential for keeping an eye on your business. When a potential intruder sees your cameras, they may have second thoughts and leave your premises. But not all surveillance systems are created equal. When you choose PELMAC for video surveillance, we can integrate your cameras with your security and access systems. Whether you’re checking cameras, arming your system or granting access at your entrance, you have the convenience of performing those tasks from the safety and security of any remote location!
In an alarm situation, you can receive a real-time alarm notification on your mobile device prompting you to quickly and remotely view video surveillance to verify or cancel alarms. This can potentially eliminate false alarms and lessen the burden to our first responders.
Think of what happens when you’re there.
A broken window, leaky pipe, failed water pump or a compressor that retired prematurely……that’s all in a day’s work for most business owners or managers. But what happens when you’re not there? Beyond traditional surveillance and security, PELMAC also offers a variety of environmental sensors to allow you to remotely monitor temperature, humidity, water, gas, etc. which when detected early can save thousands of dollars in costly repair and/or restoration bills.
