Suffice it to say, all of us are feeling the effects and changes that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought with it. Whether you’ve temporarily closed your small business, working remotely from home, or now homeschooling your kids, we’re sure your life looks pretty different than it did a couple of months ago.
As we all adjust to these various challenges and changes, many of us are also looking for ways to make our ‘new’ lives better and easier in the midst of all this. Now, while home security systems might not seem like an obvious area to think about, there are, in fact, many ways that alarm systems and modern surveillance technologies can help homes and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
How Smart Security Systems Can Help Homes & Businesses During COVID-19
Below we take a look at five different ways in which smart security systems can offer you peace of mind, while also making your life a little easier during these uncertain and difficult times:
1. Protects Your Home When You’re Away For Long Periods
While most of us are working remotely, many sectors are still operating in full swing. With the essential sectors working long hours and late shifts, means that homes are left empty for large portions of the day and night. Working long hours is difficult enough, so you shouldn’t have to worry about home security on top of this too. Aeon Systems offers a comprehensive line of home security services and alarm systems to make sure your property is protected from threats of intrusion or fire. Whatever your needs and requirements, Aeon’s home alarm systems are customized to meet all your individual security needs.
2. Surveils Your Business and Workplace When It’s Closed
Sadly, many businesses have had to temporarily close shop due to COVID-19 restrictions and regulations. This may mean that your company offices or business locations are standing empty, making the premises an easy target for criminals. Not only can Aeon’s commercial security systems offer your business protection, but it will also offer you peace of mind that your business is being monitored 24/7. Did you know that surveillance cameras are a deterrent in themselves? Plus, with a proper system in place, the chance of a security incident reduces rapidly.
3. Allows For Hands-Free Access
If your business is still operating or when it does open again, business owners will need to make various changes that promote personal hygiene, as well as sanitizing and disinfecting high-touch areas. Many businesses are incorporating things like automatic doors and motion-sensor lights to avoid these high-touch areas. Upgrading your security system can also help with this. Aeon’s security systems for business offer access control systems that are completely free of touch points and keycards, and instead employees can simply tap an app on their phone.
4. Lets You Keep An Eye On Your Loved Ones
Many of our loved ones fall into the high-risk group when it comes to the coronavirus. Plus, with the restrictions in place, and the threat of contracting or spreading the virus, most of us are unable to visit our elderly or ill family members and friends. Installing a smart security system in your loved one’s home allows you to keep an eye on them and know that they are staying safe. Aeon’s residential security system offers video surveillance and emergency response services, which can help alert the authorities if something is a miss.
5. Helps You Watch Over Your Pets
Being away from home for long periods of time means you may have to spend a lot of time away from your beloved furry friends. With Aeon’s advanced and interactive alarm systems means you will always have connectivity to your home. Even when you’re miles away, with just a few clicks on the handheld, you can check up on things at the house. This way you can make sure your pets are fine, and if there is a problem, ask a neighbor or friend that lives nearby to help out.
