There is a lot more to managing your AED than simply mounting it to a wall. Failure to manage your device properly could lead to violations of local Good Samaritan laws meant to protect you, exposing you to liability in the event your device does not function when used.
Managing your AED requires the consideration of local and state laws which may include conducting regular checks as specified by the device manufacturer, a proper post-event usage plan, emergency medical service notification, and may even require medical direction under a licensed physician. While this may sound like an overwhelming list for a single device, it could become more complicated when managing multiple devices spread across different buildings and states.
