Security is only as strong as its weakest link. We help you to effectively manage your security systems and processes by unifying the disparate security solutions you install.
While each individual security system performs a specific function, one of the most effective ways to enhance overall protection and gain other important benefits is through the integration of these security systems.
Systems integration entails bringing together of the component subsystems into one system at the physical (e.g. connecting and integrating hardware etc.) and functional levels (e.g. how software interface interact, creating common data formats etc.).
Different manufacturers have different strengths when it comes to developing security systems. It is therefore common for customers to install systems from different vendors, e.g. CCTV from one vendor, Access Control from another, Server software from a third one and so on, to meet their security needs. This has become more of the rule than the exception. Furthermore, it is laborious and unproductive to operate these systems in isolation. It is more efficient and effective to manage all the systems through a single Graphical User Interface (GUI) from a Central Monitoring Station.
For this reason, customers need to seek organizations such as AUA that have a track record as experienced systems integrators to enable them optimize the capabilities of their different security systems. We are a major integrator of Video Surveillance (CCTV), Enterprise Access Control, Hospitality Systems, Fire Detection and Intrusion Detection systems and others in our region. AUA is strengthened by strong partnerships with key software companies and backed by the vast technical know-how and field experience of some of the leading security brands in the world. We therefore guarantee our customers of first-rate engineering and systems integration, after-sales service and support.
Benefits of Systems Integration
1. Ease of Use
An Integrated security system allows security and facilities managers to work from a single workstation, managing an entire security installation in real time – including for distributed facilities – from a single central station with a few clicks from one location rather than visiting multiple computer systems. This simplifies the security management process.
2. Lower Labor Costs and Improved Operations
System integration can positively influence overall operational and administrative costs. Managing remote diagnostics and operation of fire alarm systems, managed services of video surveillance and two-way audio systems, and monitoring access requests and alarms from multiple distributed doors all from a single station reduces need for service visits and provides peace of mind. These streamlined operations help to reduce labor costs and improve effectiveness and efficiency of security operations.
3. Improve Response Time
Effectively integrated security systems will deliver real-time alerts from alarm systems, including diagnostics, improving response time.
4. Integrity of collected data
The wealth of intelligent information collected by systems integration will lead to better decision making.
5. Easy Management of Multiple Sites
Integration can include multiple buildings on multiple sites, and is not limited to one individual building. Organization with distributed sites therefore Increase staff productivity through a single, integrated interface to all control systems, effectively managing multiple distributed sites.
