Integrated Business Security Solutions

Fully integrated commercial facility security systems provide better safety and security for an overall smooth and manageable user-experience. Below are the common features of integrated business security solutions:

Commercial Access Control Systems

Commercial Access Control Systems provide access to your facility in the easiest and most convenient way. They are a much more reliable option than the traditional keys. With traditional keys, there is a constant fear of losing keys and therefore being vulnerable to crimes. Plus, with traditional keys, when employees leave the company, the entire company has to change the locks, but commercial access control systems can quickly remove access privileges from the card or fob the user was using to gain access to the building. But with access control systems, users can block the access of a single credential in case of loss and grant a new credential to access the facility. The whole system sets access levels based on rules or roles of the individuals in the facility, thereby allowing access only to an authorized person in a particular time frame.

Professional Video Surveillance Systems

Video surveillance systems are used to capture videos of different locations in your facility using security cameras. You can capture the entire view or a restricted view only based on business needs. Advanced technologies feature small, high-definition security cameras like 180-degree or 360-degree cameras that capture multiple angles at affordable prices. Video surveillance systems can be integrated with access control systems to capture the video of people entering and leaving your facility. Video Surveillance cameras provide 24/7 monitoring and recording of events in your facility.

Business Visitor Management Systems

Visitor management systems help to manage the flow of visitors in your facility. Once a visitor arrives, they are provided with a temporary badge or tag to allow access to visitor assigned areas in the facility. Access control systems can be integrated with a visitor management system to provide an extra layer of security. When a visitor displays the credential against the access control reader to gain access, the photo ID or business card is scanned and checked against a stored list of members or visitors signed into the facility for an event or in general.

Commercial Alarm Systems

A commercial alarm system monitors the facility with 24/7 alarm capabilities. Based on different situations, mass notification sounds can be configured in the security system. Commercial alarm systems place sensors in certain areas of the facility. If an individual attempts to gain access, sensors dispatch an alarm to security officers and/or local police about the potential threat. Integration with commercial security cameras can trigger a video surveillance recording of the entire event. Fire alarms can also be integrated with security systems to detect fire and smoke using temperature sensors or smoke detectors.

Physical barriers for commercial facilities

Physical barriers help to restrict access to unknown individuals trying to enter the facility. Examples of physical barriers are a locked door, turnstile, or gates. These barriers are a part of commercial facility security systems that controls access to specific areas in the facility.

Facial Recognition for businesses

Facial Recognition is one of the latest technologies that enhances the authentication process for granting access to the facility. When an individual stands in front of the door, their face is captured live and compared against the stored digital image to grant access.

Biometric Scanning for commercial entrances

Biometric scanning is a method of identifying a person based on that person’s chemical, behavioral, or physical attributes. The main purpose of biometrics is to verify the person’s identity in order to restrict access to an unauthorized person entering the facility. The biometric reader captures the distinct pattern when the user stands in front of the access door. These patterns can be fingerprints, irises, hand geometries, voice patterns, DNA information, or other biometrics. Different sensor technology works for each of them to carry forward with the verification steps internally to grant access.

Intrusion Detection for burglary prevention

Intrusion Detection is the most effective way of monitoring, servicing, and responding to alarm signals. Any suspicious events are reported to an administrator or collected centrally using a security information and event management system. Integrating alarm and intrusion detection systems helps to maximize security. Below are a few technologies and detection systems that can add value to your commercial facility security systems:

  • Motion detection
  • Perimeter protection
  • Glass-break detection
  • Multi-area arming
  • Wireless intrusion-detection systems

Smart devices for advanced security systems

IoT sensors offer a lot of capability to secure your facility with advanced technologies. Smart devices are easy to install, manage, and integrate with various systems to build a unified security system.

Designing a business security system

Commercial facility security system design is important to consider before installing the system. Proper advance planning helps to mitigate risks by controlling people’s access to the facility and asset protection.

Security layout for businesses

A business security plan requires careful planning, designing, solid implementation, and ongoing maintenance. The layout should involve all areas to outline risks, document business security goals, develop strategies, rules, and procedures.

They should have a business background and experience with facility blueprints, records of security incidents, account data, and security system information.
