Commercial Security can be more than your basic intrusion alarm.
Smart Security today, can be your basic intrusion alarm, but you can easily add;
Carbon Monoxide Detection
Water and Leak Detection
Very quickly, your smart security system can become the platform for all sorts of security related additions and integrations with your alarm.
The 3 most common additions to the business security system
It is really common to add Access Control features, so you can ditch handing out keys, managing and retrieving keys that allow entry into your building. Also you can ditch interacting with your alarm keypad with PIN numbers, as when you integrate access and alarm, they talk to each other; meaning an approved door entry, knows the alarm needs to be disarmed
Having a camera system that can be apart of your security app makes lots of sense, as other security related events of card access, a door or motion alarm, panic alarm, etc, and cross awareness, make your total security system more valuable
Video Doorbell for Business
Having a video doorbell so that you can leave your nonpublic doors more secure that also integrates with your security app, improves safety.
The clear trend is automation. Make is so when arm your alarm, it turns off the music, turns off the lights, sets the thermostat, locks the door and activates the alarm. It is very typical that these kind of scenes can be done when arriving (disarming your alarm), when you are open to the public, evening, closing and leaving your business.
Bring it all together
While your alarm system is the center of keeping your business safe; having your alarm be apart of a larger security consideration and automation strategy to make your place safer, run more efficiently and save money, makes total business sense.
