IQ Panel 2 for Small Business

I love that my Qolsys IQ Panel 2 sends me disarm photos each weekday morning as my staff gets into the office. Consider the intelligence/data that a business owner/manager receives from this kind of message:

1- did my employees arrive on time?

2- what sort of mood are they in?
