How do I grow my business?

If you’re working towards expansion, changing your security may be the last thing on your mind, but that’s exactly when it should be a top priority. With Alarm.com for Business, managing a growing operation has never been easier. From our enterprise dashboard and app, multi-location management is simple and efficient. Check in on new employees with state-of-the-art office surveillance cameras. Easily add or remove user access codes with Commercial Access Management. Set rules and permissions based on corporate policy, or put local decisions in the hands of trusted managers. It’s never been easier to manage and automate it all. 

Can I monitor employee productivity?

Nobody wants to think about spying on their employees—after all, you hired them because you trust them. But for many businesses, improving employee productivity is a top concern, even more than fending off cyber-attacks. Employees arriving late or heading out early cost businesses thousands of dollars each year. If supplies are disappearing, registers aren’t adding up, or records just don’t match reality, a smarter business security platform like Alarm.com can help reveal who’s not a good fit for your high standards.

How can I lower my energy costs?

With energy prices climbing and the cost of running a business ever increasing, every savings opportunity matters. Alarm.com for Business optimizes your energy usage through a combination of smart thermostats, specialized sensors, controlled access to equipment, and pre-set rules and “Scenes.” Create schedules based on business hours and set the thermostat to auto-adjust when no one’s in the office. And by monitoring temperatures, you’ll confirm important insights about your property—a room that won’t stay warm might have an HVAC or insulation issue, for example.

How can I monitor the weather?

We don’t blame you—weather can affect the inside of your business just as much as the outside. Keep watch with the best commercial indoor and outdoor security system. Scorching heatwaves and sub-zero chills are taxing energy grids everywhere. Power outages are unpredictable. Wildfires, tornadoes, even tsunamis—you’ll know about any extreme weather changes in real time. If your business has locations in areas impacted by events like these, Alarm.com for Business’s alerts keep you in the know, so you can notify your teams ASAP.

Are there other features I can incorporate?

Your Alarm.com Authorized Service Provider can share features that will work especially well for your business. For example, you can create custom rules and notifications based on your phone’s location—greeting you with a warm, brightly lit space when you arrive at work on a cold morning, or sending a reminder to remotely arm the system if you forget when you leave at the end of the day.

Smarter business security has a lot to offer—for you, your business, your employees, and your customers. When you standardize your business security system on a platform like Alarm.com, you’ll have more opportunities than ever to secure, automate, and enhance your business operations.
