Integrating your security systems increases efficiency

23 February 2021

Unplanned or gradual changes in your security systems, that may mean your company is not keeping up with the latest technology, can result in you working a lot less efficiently than you need to be.

When did you last upgrade your intruder alarm system? Have you had an analogue CCTV system but now need new IP cameras and want to be able to see images on a single appliance? Are you operating an electronic access control system but your CCTV system is running separately? Have you carried out various hardware upgrades but know your security software is only available on certain machines?

We offer integrated security solutions

Being able to offer integrated security solutions to businesses and other organisations is one of the key strengths of Security Group. While you may have chosen us initially for intruder alarms we can look across access control, CCTV as well as server room security to integrate the systems as much as possible to make life simpler for you.

Knowing that we are maintaining all of your security solutions will also give you peace of mind that we are keeping on top of all upgrades and improvements. For us providing the most appropriate, well-designed and well-installed solution is always our highest priority.

High Quality Products

We work with high quality CCTV and access control suppliers Avigilon, as well as access control manufacturers, Paxton and Videx. All of these have developed solutions that can be integrated with other security systems.

If you improve your CCTV system by installing Avigilon IP cameras you can integrate analogue cameras by installing Avigilon encoders that can work with the Avigilon Control Center video management software so all images are available on the single platform making surveillance simpler.

By integrating your access control and CCTV you will be able to link footage to specific access events in the access control software which will help make your site more streamlined and secure. Additionally, if you control your intruder and access systems as one across different areas of your site you can minimise false alarms.

Additional features for access control available

With the right access control system, you can program your fire doors to automatically open in the event of an emergency and the software can be configured to control access into lifts and to individual floors. Other features can include integrating systems with biometric readers to increase the level of security as well as the automatic generation of a roll call should your fire alarm go off and an evacuation of the building is necessary.

Security Group also provides security at the level of the server room or other IT space. We can supply sensors and rack access kits from APC. These can monitor access to IT racks and doors into server rooms.

Keeping your monitoring and security devices available on a single platform allows for improved efficiency for your business. If you believe you can benefit from integrating your systems contact us to gain expert advice.
