The purpose of an integrated system is to monitor and control the inputs and activities of operators and personnel from various systems all in one place. As you can imagine, installing an integrated system is a complex process and must be carefully planned to ensure effective implementation.
Many integrated systems include:
Such system integration eases building management by allowing you to control everything from a single platform.
At Anchor Fire Protection, we use Centra-Larm Monitoring. Utilizing your internet connection, your alarm will alert the Central Station in the event of an emergency with the speed of the internet and the security of a supervised, secure connection.
Be aware that fire protection and other life-critical systems are often integrated for monitoring and control purposes, but integrated systems can’t replace fire control panels unless the Fire Marshall or another authority with jurisdiction in your area provides approval.
Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is a popular surveillance system often used in banks, casinos, convenience stores, airports, and many other industries. Simply the presence of security cameras is often enough to deter crime. When criminals are still daring enough to steal or vandalize, the incident is caught on camera to aid with litigation. CCTV is also useful for watching industrial processes from a remote location when in-person observation isn’t possible.
The equipment in a CCTV system includes cameras to capture images, monitors to view real-time footage from the cameras, and digital video recorders for archiving and retrieving footage by date and time recorded. CCTV systems can be implemented through an IP network or coaxial cables.
The most basic type of access control is to lock your building’s front door and issue keys to authorized employees. More complex access control is achieved through technological means, such as installing card access and biometric identification readers outside certain rooms. With this method, you can control flow in and out of secure areas and monitor the movements of employees around your building.
Access control works in conjunction with CCTV, allowing you to view people entering—or attempting to enter without authorized access—any door in your building. This is clearly a very effective way to increase building security.
