Smartphones, smartwatches… it seems that everything is becoming smarter, including our businesses and security systems. But how much do you know about smart business security? What exactly is it and how can it help your business? We have the answers, so keep reading to find out more.
What is smart business security?
Smart business security is when a business uses and integrates technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) alongside their current systems so that they can work together and provide key insights and allow for automation that will lead to improved efficiencies and productivity.
How does it work?
A smart security system allows for communication between all the individual components so that they can work together to provide an elite level of site protection via sensors and smart system features.
Although having smart business security in place allows for the system to essentially think for itself, it also allows for full management and specific control of certain areas, due to its smart abilities and features. For example, arming and disarming security alarms, controlling access control areas and viewing live CCTV footage remotely, through a smart device.
How can smart security help a business?
A smart security system can increase the level of security and protection of a site, business assets, as well as improve the safety of employees and visitors. This is especially important in the event of an emergency, incident or security breach. For example, if an intruder alarm was triggered, a smart security system would communicate with the other systems within the building to make key decisions to best dealing with the situation. Access control will automatically block the intruder’s exit route, bright lighting will turn on in that specific area and CCTV cameras will record the event.
