Integrated access control systems help bolster hospital security
Integrated access control systems that work together with a building’s other vital systems (such as lighting, security, environmental management, etc.) can significantly bolster hospital security, experts believe.
Hospitals are very complex buildings, running in parallel a variety of systems, including CCTV video surveillance, access control, emergency communications, intrusion alarms, fire alarms, lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and more.
Integrating all of the above in a seamless platform is not a very easy task, but, once successfully accomplished, it will ensure that the organization’s response to safety and security issues faster and more effective.
Systems integration can also improve a facility’s day-to-day operations. For example, when heating/ventilation, lighting and alarm/intruder alert systems are integrated with access control, the resulting system will be able to reduce operating costs by automatically identifying when certain rooms are not in use and turn off the lights and HVAC at those locations.
