Nashua’s security solutions: we’ve got you covered
Business owners have a million things to worry about. When you factor in security, it becomes ten times more challenging to run a successful operation.
But, with the current threat landscape, security should be a priority now more than ever. The latest statistics from the South African Police Service show a total of 25,000 commercial crime cases reported in the previous quarter, a 13% increase from a year earlier.
If your business doesn’t have a security system in place, you’re currently at risk. You don’t want your company to be the next victim. After all, your business and everything inside of it – your assets, money, and employees – is precious to you.
Regardless of the size of your business, you can leverage Nashua’s partnership with leading security brands to get total visibility and protection at all employee entrances and exits, ensuring your organisation is well defended and vigilant to stay one step ahead of criminals.
How our integrated security systems cover all your bases
Finding the right security solution can be overwhelming. Many businesses make the mistake of either installing solutions that are unnecessary, or will not provide the protection that they need. At Nashua we understand that each property has its unique occupants, challenges, and preferences. So the most effective security solutions are the ones that can not only be adapted and personalised to the needs of the building, but also work together to provide a higher level of protection.
We call this an integrated security system. It’s an approach that connects all the security dots in your organisation, resulting in a faster and more coordinated response to threats. An integrated security system consists of the following elements:
The integration of these solutions essentially creates a security ecosystem with the right mix of efficiency and productivity while enhancing the safety of building staff and visitors.
Let’s look at a few examples of how an integrated security system would work. Security cameras are automatically triggered when movement is detected. Live footage can be accessed wirelessly or over the internet. Depending on the type of camera, security personnel may pan left to right, tilt up and down, and zoom in and out of a scene. Many modern security cameras also allow you to view high-resolution images in low-light or no-light environments.
These high-tech video capabilities can work in conjunction with access control to increase both their potential in the event of a threat. If you have a network of CCTV cameras set up as part of a perimeter detection system, the system will not only alarm the security service of potential intruders but can also trigger the access control system to automatically secure entry points.
CCTV cameras can keep watch over entrances where employees use their access cards. With the assistance of analytics, the security system can quickly determine if the person trying to gain entry is authorised to do so. If not, the system will lock the user out and trigger an alarm.
Another unique benefit of integrated security systems is the ability to check in on entry points and cameras around the clock, no matter where you are. This can be done either from a central monitoring station or an Internet-connected mobile device. Remote surveillance allows you to see what happened at a particular door, or quickly analyse an event or person to decide whether there is a reason to notify emergency responders.
With an integrated security system, it is not necessary to switch between a security camera and access control to review an incident. Everything can be managed in one place. All you have to do is allocate security cameras to certain entry points and get full visibility into door and perimeter security.
