What does Integrated Security mean for you?

Integrated Security means value. Integrated Security means intelligence. Integrated Security means efficiency.

In short, having multiple systems communicating together means you have more power and more information at your disposal to make better decisions. By combining video, intercoms and other systems together, we can make decisions when an alarm occurs as we have information on the alarm from multiple systems.

We can also intelligently understand how our business works as our security system can help us evaluate our efficient and productive our workforce are, how many breaks do they go on and do they react well enough to customers in potentially sales situations? All this can be achieved by having a high quality security system, composed of Cameras, Access Control and Voice solutions.

Key areas to think about:

  • Does your line of work require security (either for operations, insurance or “other”) ?
  • Does your organisation currently have sufficient security cover – such as for the number of events that occur within the business?
  • Is your current security solution working for you – is it quick and easy to find footage and events from the system?
  • Can you quickly and easily run reports from the system? Does the system fit in with the way you run your business?
  • Does your current security system help to save you money (via preventing theft and vandalism etc) or is it costing you money to use and run?
  • Does your current security system communicate to any other systems you run? Are you being provided with enough information as to make decision on your business?
  • Can you current system grow as your business grows?
