Making sure that only authorized members of staff are able to access an organization’s site is just the first step in securing access to an organization’s premises. In fact, for total peace of mind and complete security, organizations need to deploy and integrate a variety of systems, such as video surveillance (CCTV), visitor monitoring and management, fire roll call, alarms and many more.

Integrating multiple systems together will make monitoring, updating and reporting much easier, while the business insight the systems provide will let you use time and resources more efficiently and improve health and safety for personnel and visitors.

An integrated system will act as a hub, allowing users to integrate and operate all their systems from one place and seamlessly control access via doors, turnstiles, lifts, car park barriers as well as monitoring real-time events via CCTV, controlling access to assets and areas via HR and active directory systems and tracking assets and personnel if need be.

The advantages of using an integrated system include the ease of use – all aspects of security and access are manager from one place through one programme – while integration with visitor management systems means you can save time for reception staff.

Enhanced security is yet another major advantage provided by integrated security systems, as they can be used to better identify who is where on site in an emergency situation, ensuring all personnel are evacuated safely if need be. Or, it can allow you to keep important training and accreditations on file and issue automatic renewal messages to ensure professional credentials and health and safety training are always up to date.
