Today, safety and security is a top priority for businesses of all sizes. When companies are building new office spaces or redesigning existing ones, they are tasked with making sure they are creating a productive, harmonious and safe workspace for their employees. To do this, they rely on security solution integrators who can assess a building’s security risks and determine the right physical security system that will keep people and assets safe. The most common physical security solutions found in office and corporate environments include video security cameras, access control systems, radio communication devices and mass notification applications.
Video security cameras capture high-quality video and monitor an office’s premises at all times, and the use of advanced analytics that can automatically notify security personnel about areas that need attention, and inform operations teams with people counting, occupancy and space utilization insights. This can help them increase their productivity and make monitoring more efficient. Cloud-based access control systems allow employees to easily obtain access to enter the office through the lobby, reach their designated floor and book a conference room at his or her convenience through mobile devices. They also provide key information to security staff that helps them stay on top of who’s coming in and out of the building and manage system upgrades from anywhere in the world. When communications matter, security teams use dedicated radio networks and devices. They allow for instant, effective, clear and reliable communications between teams. When an event or threat occurs, mass notification applications enable security personnel to immediately share important information via text, improving emergency preparedness and helping keep everyone safe.
Together these solutions can improve productivity, increase collaboration, drive efficiencies and be integrated to ultimately create a safer workplace.
