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 from BSG, 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 provided by BSG 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 BSG 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Outdated access technology weakens your security and gets harder to manage as your business grows. Alarm.com’s 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:
