Every business has important assets to protect, and having good security is important to keep your business safe. Whether or not you already have perimeter protection in the form of a security fence, that is often just the beginning of what you can do to protect your business. An integrated security system is a holistic application of security features that cover any weak spots where intruders could get in. Here is an overview of what you need to build your integrated security system.
An automatic gate is a key feature for securing your perimeter because it controls when people can enter your property. Of course, you can’t have a gate without first investing in a quality high-security fence. There are so many choices for how you can have your gate built into your fence. It can match the height, dimensions, and materials of your fence, or it can be a separate design. For example, a barrier arm gate is a simple and effective way to limit vehicular access to your property. With an automated gate, you will also need to consider what type of gate operator system you will need. And that goes hand in hand with an access control system as well.
On an automatic gate, an access control system should be the only point of entry. Access control systems create a lock and key effect that is specifically limited to people who have authorized access. Whether it is a keypad code, swipe card, buzz-in system, or something more advanced like a biometric scanner, access control makes it easy for you to assign only the people you want to have access. You can make your building only accessible by your employees until you want to let guests in, and you can make certain rooms within your building restricted so that only your top supervisor can enter.
Lastly, an integrated security system isn’t complete without video surveillance. CCTV video surveillance is simple to install and an effective way to keep an eye on your property from all angles. Video surveillance works well with an access control system because it allows you to authorize access remotely. For example, a buzz-in system with a video camera lets you see when a guest is waiting at your gate so that you can let them in. You can save time and focus on your work because video surveillance covers your property, so you don’t have to.
