Managing a multi-location business is not easy. Between different zip codes, different layouts, and different hardware, keeping everything running not just smoothly, but productively can be like ice-skating uphill.

But there is a simple, straightforward, and easily implemented solution in just two words: “smart buildings.”

By converting your facilities to use smart security technology, you can manage your multi-location business using one platform, anywhere, at any time.

Here are three distinct ways smart building tech will make your life as a property manager easier:

  1. Remote monitoring: Smart building tech can help you keep eyes on all of your assets, whether that’s a smattering of storefronts across the state, or thousands of skyrises nationwide. Monitor the status of any one of your properties in real-time using a user-intuitive, cloud-based interface accessible from virtually anywhere in the world on any Internet-connected device. Identify potential problems room-by-room and floor-by-floor and act immediately.
  2. Reducing maintenance costs. Dispatching maintenance crews to multiple sites to assess performance can rack up a hefty invoice that can significantly cut into your bottom line. By helping you pinpoint potential red flags in advance, smart building tech can help you plan ahead. Schedule crews only when needed, ensuring that they have the most current data, and have the tools on hand for whatever the situation requires.
  3. Improving comfort while increasing efficiency. Cloud-based systems can pinpoint areas in need of attention, while allowing for on-the-fly adjustment of utilities and equipment. Automation allows business owners to manage utilities and lighting across all properties with just a few quick clicks. Thermostats and lighting grids, for example, can be programmed to turn on and shut off at certain times of day. Smart thermostats can access sensors in different rooms and buildings to manage comfort at a more specific level, while geolocation can adjust temps based on the whereabouts of your team.

Sustainable, cloud-based systems can help to save you time, money, and resources, while helping to conserve energy and more. Easily installed and implemented by a quality security vendor, they can also help to boost comfort and productivity for your entire team.
