Sometimes, companies have a facility that is far away from their headquarters. For companies that drill oil, there are often a great many locations throughout the world that they need to communicate with and secure. But how can you go about the safety and security of your remote facilities? Let’s take a closer look.
A centralized control room gives you control of local and remote facilities.
When you have a lot of locations, you have a unique problem. You cannot be in twenty places at once, right? Well, not exactly. With a centralized control room, you can observe and secure multiple facilities all at once. A control room is going to help you operate between SCADA HMI systems, security systems, communications systems, and collaboration tools all in one place. This will allow your security officers and administrative personnel to run a tight ship from anywhere.
Visuals are a security essential for remote facilities.
Sometimes alarms fail, so it’s always good to have a backup. A surveillance system will help your remote facility stay secure even when other aspects of the security system fail. Not only that, but it is important to be able to see the daily operations of your facilities, even when they are exceptionally far away.
Imagine a future-proof system.
The world of security is always changing. When you decide on your security system for your remote facility, you need to make sure that evolving technology isn’t going to hinder its effectiveness or bypass its features. Hackers and other technological criminals are always changing their approaches, but when you invest in extra, future-proof security features, you can keep them at bay. Yes, high tech security is great, but combining it with locks, guards, and fencing will help to create the most security.
Make sure your security is in working order before you send it out.
Before you ship your new security system to your remote facility, run some tests with it. It might be difficult to do any work on it once it’s on location, so it’s best to do the work now.
