Management companies need to consider how they can secure the office building as well as the various companies inside. Buildings and offices need to be secured against risks such as burglary, vandalism, unwanted visitors, as well as other risks. These risks are increased when there's a higher volume of people, who are not known to each other, entering and exiting the building.
Security specialists advise management companies to understand the risks involved and also offer the necessary level of service. Security systems act as a deterrent, reducing the likelihood of criminal activity, and also provide evidence in a court of law if required. The most popular systems are access control and CCTV.
Access control systems Ensure the highest levels of security with high quality access control
Old-fashioned locks and keys don't provide the right levels of security, or simply prove difficult to manage with higher numbers of employees – especially when there's more than one company or organisation in an office building. Entry phones, cards, keypads and fobs give companies better control, are safer and cost effective.
Improving security not only gives staff and customers better protection, it reduces the risk of theft or damage to property, as well as reducing insurance premiums.
There are a number of access control systems available dependent on the requirements of the office building from high-end multi-door computer-controlled systems to one-door stand-alone systems. Experts can advise which control system and locking device is most suitable. Examples include smart card, digital keypad, fob or proximity card, and door entry phone systems with audio and video.
CCTV surveillance systems Deter theft and other criminal activity
There's a wide range of CCTV systems available including:
Internally and externally fitted
Day and night cameras
360 degree pan, tilt and zoom
Wired and wireless
Covert security systems
Modern technology means CCTV cameras can be monitored and controlled on or off site – in fact from anywhere in the world. There are remote monitoring stations, controlled 24 hours a day by people, offering additional peace of mind and security. These operators can alert the police and with a loud speaker let an intruder or thief know they have been spotted. Digital video recorders can provide evidence for investigations and criminal prosecutions.
Door access control systems can also be integrated with CCTV surveillance systems, intruder and fire alarms. All systems should be compliant with National Security Inspectorate, NACP standards, and the Equality Act 2010.
