When you’re running a business, you can’t afford for your security solutions to be offline. Remote access safe locks are no exception. To protect your assets and manage complex operations, reducing maintenance requirements and downtime are critical. Here are a few tips for keeping your remote access safe locks online and running smoothly.

1. Streamline your network.
No surprises here: the more external components your system requires, the more opportunities for breakdowns and requirements for maintenance. To minimize downtime, look for a remote access safe lock solution with minimal peripheral components.

2. Build from existing connectivity.
When you tap into existing network connectivity and hardwiring, you reduce the amount of time you’ll spend on installation, but also find efficiencies in maintenance. Using an existing secure Wi-Fi network, for example, means that the routine maintenance you already perform on the network also extends to your remote access safe locks

3. Consider your power source.
Battery power sounds great until you factor in the time cost of changing batteries regularly. In many cases, battery powered remote access safe locks and peripheral components use a significant amount of energy, making battery changes frequent. Each change requires a technician to access the component at each site—and those resource costs add up fast regardless of the size of your network.

4. Choose durable hardware.
All security hardware requires some maintenance. Be sure you choose a product that’s known for longevity and performance. While you’ll never completely eliminate downtime, choosing a high-quality remote access safe lock helps lower maintenance costs over time. 

NexusIP delivers a high-security, low-maintenance solution.
