Operating a small business was put to the test this past year by the COVID-19 pandemic, but as we enter a “new normal”, the tests don’t stop there. From following bottom lines to customer satisfaction, there’s a lot for a small business owner to weigh to get some peace of mind at the end of the day.
Even more paramount, the need for a strong yet convenient building entry system protecting you, your employees, and customers alike. That’s why some businesses are seeing the benefits of an entry system to monitor who comes in and out of a venue.
1. Enhanced Security
The most obvious and instant benefit of a commercial door buzzer system is the security that comes with its installation. You may have seen these systems used by jewelers, banks, and businesses that operate with high-priced valuables and cash. These buzzer systems are designed to deter break-ins and prevent unwanted entry inside a business. Some door buzzer systems also provide entry logs so that owners and property managers can review every person who activates the door buzzer.
This security measure has become especially useful for companies who set up shop in high-rise buildings. It’s not uncommon in NYC to see office buildings have a buzzer system in place to communicate with a person seeking entry into an office before they get in the building and go up the elevator. Doorbell buzzer systems have evolved to the point that you can see the person trying to ring in through an HD video transmission and a high-definition microphone.
2. Added Convenience
In addition to keeping a closer eye on potential burglars, an intercom and a door buzzer can actually be a source of convenience for a business. Tenants and employees no longer have to physically go to their building’s entrance to welcome visitors or deliveries. They can do everything from behind a desk, hearing an alarm, and then letting the buzzing sound notify the person seeking entry that they are welcome inside that entry point. This time of building access is useful in operations with a front desk presence to monitor access control and be aware of alerts.
For warehouses, a more complex commercial buzzer system is recommended to assure that no one who isn’t certified to be in the building is allowed inside. A door buzzer entry system, in conjunction with an ID scanning operation, will help a property manager keep track of who is in their building at all hours. Through commercial applications, entry doors and commercial gates can be on the same access control system to keep a business secure, while operating on all cylinders.
3. Increased Tenant Retention
Business owners and employees want to be able to go to work and feel safe, the same goes for their visitors. Commercial door buzzer entry systems offer safety and convenience and are attractive to potential tenants. Building managers and owners end up seeing the results and experiencing lower tenant turnover. A door release button within a leased out operation is paramount for a commercial building, allowing for a business to keep track of their specific needs and keep an eye on who goes in and out.
Video intercom systems give an even greater zoom in on the potential entrant. A wireless system for security purposes can allow for a business owner to monitor at all hours for greater peace of mind. In a short period of time, a door chime can turn into a potential new customer, with an understanding of who is coming in and out of the venue. Some commercial systems even come with a backup power supply so that in the event of a surge or blackout, a business remains protected 24/7/365.
