4 reasons you need to invest in integrated security

Thursday, 7th December, 2017

With security threats on the rise, it’s tricky choosing the best security solutions for your organisation and despite there being a vast array of integrated security solutions on the market, some companies are still using more traditional and often separate security solutions.

As experts in the all things security, in this blog we’re going to look at the ways in which an integrated security solution can improve your organisation, helping you to move away from traditional and old-fashioned solutions.

Capturing images with CCTV
CCTV or video surveillance becomes your eyes, giving you details of whom, where and when people are on your premises.  If you’re an educational environment CCTV also helps you meet Ofsted guidelines around safeguarding students. It also helps tackle bullying; you’ll be able to see bullying incidents on screen, helping to reduce these incidents over time.  CCTV as part of your wider security solution helps you create a safer environment for all. 

Protecting buildings people and assets
Think about your company assets, laptops, printers, equipment, and furniture. These assets will have cost you a lot of money so need protecting too. During out of hours’ and during the day your CCTV along with your access control solution will stop or alert you to any unauthorised access or movement on your premises, helping protect your assets and building.

Managing visitors and contractors
Traditionally visitors are administered manually but this is labour-intensive and relies on staff properly managing the process. With AIT your integrated security solution can register visitors, alert staff they’ve arrived and using CCTV and access control, monitor and ensure visitors don’t stray from their designated location. Visitor management is also ideal for controlling reception traffic ensuing visitors are managed efficiently.
