Benefits of Integrated Design & Installation
Have you considered the benefits of integrating your security system and low voltage solutions? Having one point of contact can cover all your needs. Here’s what to expect:
- Improved efficiency: Everything about integrating security and low voltage solutions is designed to improve efficiency. First, there’s the design and installation process. When a single provider manages these tasks, you can rest assured that every system will be compatible with the next, while still leaving ample room for expansion as your business grows in the future. Then, there’s the usability of an integrated system. You can access security camera feeds, alter access control settings, send out mass notification alerts, and much more, all with a single point of contact.
- Supportive features: As opposed to separate competing systems, integrated systems support one another. Instead of overlapping here and there or leaving unintended gaps in your building’s security efforts, integration creates a seamless solution of interconnected systems. This allows you to optimize your resources to their fullest potential.
- Reduced costs: The best way to keep installation costs down is to integrate all the systems you need simultaneously. This way, there are no compatibility issues or the need to restructure an existing setup to make way for more hardware. Choosing a single provider to install your systems also keeps inspection costs down since all components can be tested and serviced together.
- Minimal impact on your building’s infrastructure: Cabling and other system structures take up valuable space in your building. The more square footage you set aside for security and low voltage solutions, the less room your employees and patrons have to work with. Integrated systems can often share infrastructure to minimize the total number of cables and devices needed for effective operation.
What Security & Low Voltage Systems Should be Integrated?
With help from State Systems, it’s possible to integrate all of the following security and low voltage solutions into a single system:
- Structured cabling: Structured cabling is the basic foundation on which all other security and low voltage equipment depends. Whether you choose a copper, fiber optic, or coaxial solution, wiring is necessary to connect everything from access control equipment to security cameras to intercoms.
- Wireless networking: You might also be interested in the benefits of wireless networking, which allows integrated system components to communicate with one another over your network without the need for cables.
- Intrusion detection equipment: Locking the door is no longer good enough if you want to keep intruders out. For enhanced security and a higher chance of catching the perpetrator in the act, you need an intrusion detection system. This includes window and door contacts, motion sensors, and panic switches. Then, heat and smoke detectors provide additional security against fire.
- Access control systems: The purpose of access control is to grant and deny entry into certain areas of your building. Use access cards or biometric scanners on doors, elevators, parking garage gates, and much more. Integrate the appropriate security system, and you can also record the date and time that guests and employees enter and exit certain areas of the building for complete access control.
- CCTV: Closed-circuit television systems utilize cameras and digital recorders to monitor activity around your building. Images are transmitted to monitors in real time, and with the right system integration, you can view live and recorded feeds remotely over the Internet.
- Paging and intercom systems: If you have a large, sprawling facility, a paging and intercom system is the most effective way to communicate quickly with employees and customers. Use it to make live announcements or issue automatic emergency alerts when integrated with your security system.
