Is your security system adequate for your business needs?
For too long companies have been inclined to piece together security equipment in an effort to keep their business and employees safe and secure. Though well-intentioned, little to no effort is made to bring all these components together in a centralized location for complete visibility and control. Most product manufacturers for security typically focus on specific areas, whether it be video surveillance, door access, or perimeter control. Propriety software also limits the ability to integrate many of these systems to one another. Because of this, you limit yourself to an uncomprehensive approach to your physical security that can negatively impact your business with respect to PCI Compliance, Business, Privacy, and Safety Policies.
Open API for Security Integration
OPC, ASCII text, Active Directory, Enterprise Data Interface
An open what? First, let’s define what an API is. An open API (often referred to as a public API) is a publicly available Application Programming Interface that provides developers with programmatic access to a proprietary software application or web service. APIs are sets of requirements that govern how one application can communicate and interact with another. In short, an Open API allows software access to a developer so they can connect two different applications to one another.
What does this mean for your Security System?
Let’s say you are a multi-site company with different functions in each building. Perhaps door access is necessary for all locations, but perimeter control may only be needed for your warehouse. With the advent of software integration, many of the systems that you already have in place could be used with the Security Solution we provide. Time and attendance software, building management systems, booking interfaces, parking lot systems, fencing, disturbance detection, door access with wireless lock integration by mobile (BLE) credentials through a mobile app — the possibilities are limited to your imagination.
