TREND 1 : The all in one, modular security system
We operate in an industry where our customers expect comprehensive solutions. The concept of systems working seamlessly together has long been desired by security professionals.
The benefits of merging multiple security systems – including video, access control, alarm, fire prevention and emergency management into a unified platform is highly desirable. This enhances efficiency and cost-effectiveness. For example, when an alarm goes off, an integrated system automatically links that alert to the output of the nearest camera, so the whole situation can be easily witnessed and managed remotely. This translates to a considerable reduction in time and effort, and most importantly, costs.
For home systems this puts the homeowner or business owner in full control of the situation, for Commercial applications savings in manpower, installation time, maintenance costs, software licenses and ease of use all add up to create an attractive package for customers.
What is more, merging these systems makes security solutions modular and scalable. Existing infrastructure can be connected and future needs on the same central platform can be added as and when required or desired.
