Advantages of smart access control alarms

8 Benefits of Smart Access Control Alarms

January 3, 2022 by

Canada is considered the 6th safest country in the world, and yet security is still an issue for many Canadians. Even the safest neighbourhood can experience vandalism or theft. To protect homes, businesses, belongings, and families, many invest in alarm systems in Canada.

Over the years, alarm systems have changed to reflect the times. In this digital age of quick access, convenience, and automation, smart access control alarms are the popular option. These systems are designed to supply an added level of security controlled from any mobile device.

At Canadian Security Professionals, we work with home and business owners across the country. It’s important to us that our clients feel safe, which is why we supply leading alarm systems in Canada. Interested in learning more? Here are 8 benefits to consider when shopping for smart access control alarms.

1. Keep tabs on company

Whether you’re home to receive guests, or company arrives while you’re at work, your smart access control alarm system lets you control and monitor who enters. If you have access to your mobile device and smart access login information, you can manage your lock from wherever you go. You can also track who has come to call.

Smart access systems monitor the comings and goings of those with passcodes. You can know when you had a visitor, and for how long, without ever leaving the office. This is particularly useful to business owners who have after-hours cleaning crews and other third-party visitors on-site when the company is closed for the night.

2. Forgetting lost keys

Losing a key is one of the worst things a homeowner can do, especially if your backup is out of reach. With smart access control alarms, there’s no need for a key. Instead, Canadians use codes or other smart access tools to get inside. Foregoing keys offers peace of mind, especially if you’re forgetful.

Again, for business owners, the keyless entry system is a phenomenal benefit. You no longer have to monitor keys that you lend to employees for opening and closing procedures. Instead, you can supply employees with access card or expiring codes to get in and out during business hours.

3. Control access across multiple properties

Smart access control alarm systems in Canada are great for property owners with more than one building. Whether you’re a landlord or you simply own a home for every season, your security systems can be managed from the same platform.

This is an advantage for business owners who wish to extend smart protection to their homes or additional business properties. Whatever the case may be, you can relax knowing your properties are all being monitored by the same high-grade security systems.

4. Increase safety levels

Canadian Security Professionals provide 24-hour monitoring, burglary protection, personal emergency monitoring, and more. All these features extend to cover the different properties you protect under your smart access control alarm systems.

Business owners in Canada can rest assured that their offices or shops are safe and secure all day long. These increased safety measures extend to reporting a fire, flood, and other property damage, thus protecting you from more than just theft alone.

5. See who is outside

Smart security systems include cameras that digitally share images and videos with your mobile account. You can see who is outside your home or business, whether you’re there to answer the door or not. This is useful if you are concerned that somebody is visiting your home who you’d rather not be around. Rather than dealing with anyone in person, you can capture their visit on camera and contact the police directly.

The smart camera security feature is especially great for monitoring deliveries. There’s nothing worse than losing a package or noticing a package hasn’t arrived, but having no proof a delivery person didn’t come by. Video footage from your smart alarm will give you the evidence needed to back up any claim about deliveries or home visitors.

6. Convenient controls

Security alarms can appear complicated, but smart access control alarms are designed to be user-friendly. All the controls are easy to understand and even easier to operate directly through your mobile phone. You can set your alarm, turn your alarm off, and lock or unlock your door with the tap of a button.

There’s no confusion with smart alarms. While there are instructions and tutorials to better understand the basics, these systems are straightforward. Stress less and feel at ease knowing that your security system is hard at work, without confusion or customer service calls to get things going.

7. Operating at a distance

Unlike traditional alarm systems, you don’t need to be present to set or turn off your alarm. If you leave your house or business and forget to turn on your security system, you can set the alarm at any time from your phone.

Alarm reports are also available at a distance. You can have these daily reports emailed to you at work, or simply log in and view them from your mobile app. Reports include unique logs for visitors, fire alarms, and other security events that happen in your home or business.

8. Relay options

For many Canadians, the house isn’t the only building onsite worth protecting. Many people own sheds, garages, greenhouses, and more. If you’re concerned for the safety of attached or detached buildings on your property, you can include them in your security system.

You can control garage door openers, locks, and your lights as well. If you leave your lights on while away on vacation, there’s no need to have your neighbour check in on things. Instead, simply turn your lights off from your mobile app and enjoy your time on holiday.
