If you’re still operating an older security system, it might be time to consider upgrading. With new technology comes new capabilities and better security systems that can keep your facility and anyone in it protected. The thought of upgrading can be intimidating, but security professionals can help you find the right upgrades for your property so you can make the most of your security systems and enjoy the perks that come with new technology.
It may seem redundant to say that an upgraded security system will provide better security, but it’s true. Technology in every industry is advancing at an insanely fast rate, meaning that a security system is behind the curve very quickly. While you don’t necessarily need to upgrade your entire system every year, you can make smaller upgrades more frequently to stay on top of your security game. Swap out old tech for better cameras that offer top-notch video surveillance, alarms with central station monitoring, and new-age access control systems that are difficult to bypass. Every upgrade is a step toward tighter security and a safer facility.
Automation & Integration
One of the best things about new technology, especially when it comes to security systems, is automation and integration. Run your entire facility’s systems through the convenience of a smartphone or panel to keep things smooth and efficient. You can do anything from setting pre-determined thermostat schedules to monitoring every access point at the touch of a button. The heyday of the security room full of monitors is on its way out, thanks to smart technology and the ease of security integration. Different systems can also be integrated with each other to create a web of security that makes it much more difficult to bypass.
I know what you’re thinking, but yeah, lower your costs! The initial investment into a large-scale upgrade can be a little daunting, but it will pay for itself over the years. One of the biggest benefits of an upgraded security system is the ability to monitor your property without the presence of security guards or administrators. If you still have people monitoring your property, paying their wages is likely costing you a lot of money. With new security systems, one person can monitor the property remotely. If you get systems with central station alarm monitoring, you don’t need anyone on-site. Authorities will be immediately alerted to any triggered alarms, and help will be on the way within minutes.
