Larger government facilities or agencies that have multiple locations typically have a central operations center where all of the alarm systems and surveillance video cameras are monitored. Designing and deploying these control room facilities require the guidance of true security experts.
It’s easy for security managers to be tantalized by giant monitors and other sophisticated technology. However, the truly important measure of control room effectiveness is how well it enables your security staff to quickly identify and respond to threats or alarms. That quick response requires the right technology combined in a way that creates an intuitive, easy-to-use system-control platform.
Many control rooms incorporate software that knits together every aspect of your security system – intrusion, fire, access control and video – into one integrated platform. SecuSmart has provided customers with software applications that allow security staff to control their system via a graphical interface. With this video “map” that shows every protected entrance and area, security officers can instantly see the status every door, sensor and alarm. They can respond to alarms or get additional detail with the click of a mouse.
In large-scale systems, the best, most comprehensive security measures can’t deliver on their full potential unless they are managed from a well-designed, properly equipped control center. Whether you need to take control of a single large facility, or dozens of facilities located across the country, trust the security professionals at SecuSmart to design and deploy a control room designed specifically to meet your needs and budget.
