Sensors will inform you of fires or malfunctioning equipment such as refrigerators, freezers and HVAC systems. If you own a restaurant that carries a large inventory, equipment malfunctions can cost thousands of dollars and put your company at risk of serving spoiled food. However, the biggest ongoing benefit of smart systems is being able to control environmental functions with your phone.
Turn down the heat or air conditioning when the business is closed, or make adjustments as the temperature changes throughout the day. Control lights to reduce energy bills. Use remote controls to turn on the heat while getting ready for work so that the business is comfortable for customers when you open. The savings on utility bills alone often cover the costs of getting a good security system.
