Why is System Integration so important?
With the ultimate goal of always being alert on Safety, Fire and Automation issues, not only confronting current threats, but also monitoring the technological developments, it is necessary to have high quality Integrated Management services, infrastructure and equipment, so that each organization will be able to readjust its existing security plans based on current requirements.
Choosing the right software for central and Integrated Management Systems of all infrastructure of an organization, can support decision making, both in regular – daily level by the Safety Manager and also on the strategic field at the level of the Administration, by reviewing the Security plans – Fire safety, staff training and expansion – upgrading of equipment. In Combination with the possibility of integrated building management system, there is a direct informing of the competent maintenance staff in cases of critical threshold overruns of temperature, humidity, energy data etc.
To achieve its mission, the Systems Integration should serve three (3) main areas:
- Consolidation of “scattered” sources of Security data of an organization, in order to exploit to the maximum extent the existing infrastructure, along with new investment in physical infrastructure.
- Provision of the appropriate procedures enabling the transformation of collected data into useable information at the lowest possible cost. To this end, the Security Systems Integration should be equipped with a high degree of automation and have adequate “building intelligence” in order to become efficient management of a large number of buildings from a central office with limited resources, assisted by a few local guards. As an example we mention the automated correlation of an alarm event from the recorded video.
- Support of integrated management systems for the maximum extent of possible action by the structures and users of the facility. For example, through the unified platform the right people with the appropriate information will be notified through the appropriate means of communication and at the right time, and then its mandatory to support the communication and cooperation between different users, operators and addresses every step of the event management cycle of alarm or access control, until the final resolution of the issues and the evaluation of results.
Furthermore, with the common control platform and the gradual setting up of compatible systems, generates sufficient infrastructure for common policies and security practices at all the buildings of the Organization, helping to implement future actions, which are designed and certified by improved procedures.
Finally, the redundancy is achieved through homogeneity / interchangeability of equipment and supported architecture of the central management software to support backup centers at both local (backup / redundant servers and databases) and decentralized level (disaster recovery sites).
With the evolution of technology and the gradual support of open communication protocols – interoperability of equipment from different manufacturers, the choice of appropriate software for Integrated Management increases the desired efficiency, while enhancing the reliability of the investment over time.
