Integrated Security Systems
Combining Different Security Equipment to Work Together
Business owners have a lot to protect, and in the past it was difficult to integrate different types of security measures into a cohesive security system. Integrated security systems are a blend of physical security and security technology that work together to provide comprehensive, reliable protection for businesses of all types and sizes. Business security systems are often made up of different security technologies working together to protect a business around the clock. Perimeter monitoring technology, intruder alarm systems, CCTV surveillance cameras, security lighting, access control systems, biometric scanners, and more are all different types of security technologies that work together to protect a business.
Better Safety & Higher Efficiency
A variety of security technologies can be incorporated into a security system to improve safety and protection, including:
Perimeter security, such as fences and gates, can be essential first line of defense in an integrated security system—especially for businesses and organizations that have valuable equipment spread across the property, organizations that house sensitive data or medical supplies, and any type of organization that needs elevated security. Properly installed security fences can keep many intruders out, and can be integrated with access control to permit only authorized personnel into certain areas of the property while keeping intruders at bay.
Intruder Alarm Systems
Intruder alarm systems for are designed to alert the user when specific danger or threats arise in or around a building, and are another key component to an integrated security system. With proper monitoring, a security system should at least detect and alert when doors and/or windows are opened when they shouldn’t be. Integrating these alarm systems into a comprehensive security suite can allow for real-time monitoring of doors and windows, alert specified users to suspicious activity, and notify local law enforcement when necessary.
Business surveillance cameras are great for helping protect your business, assets, employees, and guests. Integrating video surveillance into your security system can help you detect, deter, and catch trespassers, thieves, and criminals before you suffer loss or damage. There is no one-size-fits all solution when it comes to ensuring your premises is properly monitored, so 3D Security, Inc. can assess your property and create a custom plan to ensure maximum coverage with as few cameras as possible. Security footage captured by these cameras can be stored in the cloud and/or on site and accessed from any computer or smartphone at any time.
Security lighting can play an important role in improving the overall effectiveness of your security system. A well-lit area drastically reduces the chances of a break-in occurring because potential intruders do not have the advantage of the darkness to conceal their activities. Lighting is also important to help ensure video captured by CCTV cameras is clear no matter how dark it is outside. In addition to improving overall security on your premises, security lighting can also improve safety for employees and visitors on your property and help prevent avoidable falls and accidents that can lead to injuries.
An Access Control System is designed to restrict access to buildings or designated areas on your premises. Not every business needs an access control system, but many types of organizations can benefit from adding this technology to their security system, including hospitals and medical facilities, schools, universities, government buildings, apartments, banks, and more. A properly configured access control system will track who is where at any time on the property, and can be configured on a per-person basis to grant or deny access on specific days, at specific times, etc. Key cards can be used in place of traditional keys, which makes it easy to remove access for those who leave the company without having to change locks or worry about duplicated keys.
Integrating biometric scanners into an access control system has become more popular in recent years. With advancements in biometric technology, the price has gone down over time and the accuracy has increased. Common biometric scanners include fingerprint scanners, retina scanners, facial scanners, and voice matching technology. Biometrics makes it easy add and remove authorized users without users having to keep track of key cards or memorize pin codes. Several options reduce the need to come into physical contact with the equipment, which can help prevent the spread of germs and illnesses in buildings. 3D Security, Inc. can discuss biometric options to help decide which choices are right for you, and help integrate the technology into your security system.
