Making your security our priority
In a well designed security system, there are at least four layers of security: Environmental design, Electronic access control, Intrusion detection, Video monitoring.
These features must complement each other and the goal is to convince potential trespassers/offenders that the likely costs of attack exceed the value of making the attack.
- Environmental Design
- Door Locking : If you are looking for door locking with real time on-line systems that are inspiring to use, simple to install and able to interface to existing networks, AceTek can deliver the perfect solution, tailored to your exact requirements to provide you with all the security, convenience and control you need.
- Electronic Access Control
- Card Readers/Key Pads : Locking interfaced to Proximity Card Readers or Electronic Keypads programmed to allow or restrict access to different parts of the building.
- Intercoms : Interfacing Door and Gate Locking with an Intercom System offers staff the ability to screen visitors at the Entry Door locations and when connected to a DECT Phone system can allow staff to remotely allow on-site door access once visitor identity has been verified.
- Intrusion Detection
- Video Monitoring
- Cameras/Video Recording : AceTek’s indoor mini-dome cameras offer the latest in digital colour technology integrating a camera and lens into a one-piece, tamper proof, compact unit that can be surface or flush mounted for fast and easy installation.
The initial layer of security for any Hospital, Nursing Home or Healthcare Facility building, office, or physical space uses Crime Prevention through Environmental Design to deter threats i.e. barbed wire, warning signs and fencing, concrete bollards, metal barriers, vehicle height-restrictors & site lighting.
The next layer is access. Electronic Access Control easily manages large user populations, controlling for user life-cycles times, dates, and individual access points. For example a user’s access rights could allow access from 0700 to 1900 Monday through Friday and expire in 90 days.
The third layer is intrusion detection systems or alarms. Intrusion detection monitors for attacks. Intrusion detection has a higher incidence of false alarms. In many jurisdictions, law enforcement will not respond to alarms from intrusion detection systems.
The last layer is video monitoring systems (CCTV). Although the term closed circuit television (CCTV) is common, it is quickly becoming outdated as more video systems lose the closed circuit for signal transmission and are instead transmitting on computer networks. Advances in information technology are transforming video monitoring into video analysis. As the speed and accuracy of automated analysis increases, video systems can move from a monitoring system to intrusion detection or an access control system.
