There are many choices when it comes to selecting the access control solution that is right for your business. ATS FS will consult with you to determine the best solution based on your specific facility needs. Our engineers are experts in the latest authentication technologies including biometric measurement, key fobs and smart cards, along with pin pads and all the interconnected components. The benefits of deploying an access control system for your facility include:
- Protection for your employees – restrict unauthorized individuals from your properties.
- Eliminate keys – access control systems allow for easy additions and removals of key cards without having to issue new keys to everyone.
- Customize individual schedules – minimizes exposure to risk by never granting more access than absolutely required for each specific user in any given situation.
- Multi-Location access – access control can help provide specified users with one credential to access multiple locations.
Closed circuit television (CCTV) is used when monitoring of people, spaces or items is needed. The video can be observed from a control room in real time or stored for later viewing on DVR or over IP directly to a server. CCTV systems can also employ motion detectors, so recordings are only made when spaces are occupied. Similarly email alarms can be sent to security personnel alerting them to the occupied space so they can view the situation as it progresses. CCTV systems act as a deterrent for anyone carrying out illegal activities. CCTV systems can also monitor activity and keep track of what is occurring at your facility. This provides your workforce with peace of mind and contributes to the safety of employees. Contact ATS FS for a consultation to determine the right solution for your facility.
Duress or panic alarm systems cover many different roles. They are used to activate an alarm in situations such as medical emergencies, robberies or physical attacks. The alarms can be audible or silent depending on the needs of the individual or facility. Depending on the implementation the panic button will notify monitoring services such as a call center like internal security or the external organization like the police and emergency services. A panic button is a simple and cost-effective solution that can significantly strengthen the response to any emergency. Some systems can also activate closed-circuit television to record or assess the event. A consultation with ATS FS will help you determine the optimal security solution for your business.
Asset tracking is the method used to track physical items to know the location, status, and maintenance schedule of the asset. You can track your organization’s assets real-time through barcode labels, GPS or RFID tags, handheld barcode scanners, and asset management software. If your company isn’t investing in asset tracking, you may be losing both money and time. Properly implemented asset tracking techniques lower your administrative costs, streamline your business services, improve your customer service, and allow you to scale your business upwards with ease.
In the event of disasters or other emergencies the ability to notify individuals of danger as quickly as possible is paramount. Mass notification or emergency notification systems enable facilities and institutions to communicate quickly with a large amount of people via a one-way communication device. Using a mass notification system an organization can immediately alert its employees to evacuate the building or workplace during an emergency such as: earthquake, terrorist attack, flood, tornadoes, hurricane, fire, explosions, chemical spills, toxic gas releases, civil disturbances and workplace violence. Mass notification systems allow management to communicate with staff in the shortest time possible, something that other communication tools like email don’t afford them. Each facility and workforce have different needs and requirements depending on the nature of work or ability to hear and see signs of danger. ATS can consult with you to determine the best solution for your needs.
