At Union Alarm, we know that every building is unique; as such, your security requirements will vary. Installing an integrated security system requires a deep understanding of the technology, your business, and the best security practices.
Here are a few things to consider when building your integrated security system:
- With a basic access control system in Edmonton, you can only manage users who enter/exit exterior doors.
- Expand your control with an integrated security system, which also gives you management of a commercial alarm system.
- Arm your alarm system to monitor and manage sensitive areas within your building.
Our Edmonton technicians leave nothing to chance–we perform a professional survey to understand your building inside and out. Before we get started, we’ll ask you questions such as:
Based on your responses, we’ll put together a comprehensive proposal for you to review and approve. Then, we can get started on planning your security system integration.
Frequently Asked Questions
Integrated Alarm System – Q&A
What is an Integrated Alarm System?
You need a variety of security systems to give your Edmonton business the utmost protection. With an integrated solution, we can guard sensitive areas with alarm protection, manage user access to entrance doors, and add a monitored ULC fire alarm system.
An integrated system allows you to manage all of your security measures with ease. Add intrusion features for even greater protection. When everything is connected, you’ll get faster response times to various security issues.
What is the right level of integration?
The answer depends on the unique security needs of your property; to set up a professional survey, reach out to Union Alarm today.
Do small businesses benefit from integrated security?
Absolutely! With an integrated security system, you can monitor various areas of your building during specified hours. Arming and disarming your system is easy using the electronic keypad.
Add an access control system to control who can enter different areas of your property. You’ll always know who’s been in your building, and at what time. With integrated security systems, you can rest assured that your business will always be protected.
What is security automation?
If you’re looking for an enterprise security solution, consider security automation; it integrates your alarm system and access control system with your building automation software.
By uniting these platforms, you’ll enjoy more comprehensive building control. You can integrate your access control systems with parking lot entrances, stairwell doors, building elevators, and perimeter entrance doors.
Integrated Alarm Panels:
Every ICT Card Access Control system has internal alarm integration; it’s a feature built-in with every system. To set it up, we start by mounting the main control panel, and then activating the access control system. We’ll set up 8-zones of on-board alarm protection.
Then, we’ll set up the ICT door controllers to terminate each card reader and wire the card access points by programming 2, 4, and 8 door configurations.
Looking for more security than what a standalone alarm monitoring interface offers? Try the ProtegeGX software, which gives you more control, advanced management, and ease of use. Integrate access control, video surveillance, and intrusion detection into one user-friendly interface.
You’ll get access to central database management for graphical maps, system configuration, full reports, and card access and alarms. We offer optional add-ons, including the Photo ID Integration Package; the extensive photo ID capabilities include card design, capturing photos, and card printing (on compatible computers).
