Remote app monitoring allows you to check in on your employees, giving you an understanding of your worker’s productivity and efficiency while you are away. It would be especially effective for retail-based businesses, and factories that run for 24 hours a day, in ensuring that there is no delay in production and delivery of your goods and services.
This app monitoring feature provided by security providers like SECOM Smart Malaysia is available 24 hours a day, giving you 24/7 monitoring access to your workplace, anytime of the day, anywhere you are, from your mobile phone.
Ensures workers’ safety
Surveillance cameras such as Wifi CCTV camera systems not only allow you remote monitoring access of your worker’s performance, but also help you keep an eye on your worker’s safety. Live footage from Wi-Fi CCTV cameras installed on site helps you stay informed on your worker’s safety and whereabouts.
These features can help deter and prevent break-ins from happening, ensuring your worker safety, 24 hours a day.
Some security providers provide emergency call button service in times of emergency, which provides added benefits for business owners. SECOM Smart Malaysia’s panic button feature will also help you or your workers to call for help in case there is an emergency at your business premise, allowing you and your employees a peace of mind. The in-app panic button feature also allows business owners to notify the authorities from their phones remotely, to ensure that no harm is done to their employees and property.
