Security systems are designed to detect intrusion – unauthorized entry – into a building or area.

Security alarms are used in residential, commercial, industrial, and military properties for protection against burglary (theft) or property damage, as well as personal protection against intruders. Some alarm systems serve a single purpose of burglary protection; combination systems provide both fire and intrusion protection. Intrusion alarm systems may also be combined with closed-circuit television surveillance systems to automatically record the activities of intruders, and may interface to access control systems for electrically locked doors. Systems range from small, self-contained noisemakers, to complicated, multi-area systems with computer monitoring and control.

Access Control

As the world becomes more and more populated, it becomes harder and harder to keep track of that populace. People can slip into places they have no business being with little to no hindrance. An access control system can help to preclude this. Locks are great for keeping people out, but really are not a great solution if you also want to be able to conveniently use your door. Installing access controls on your building allows you to grant access selectively to trusted/necessary personnel only, and to do so by a quick slide of a card. CommTech carries several types of access control systems, and we will work with you to find your best solution.

Benefits of Video Surveillance for Entertainment

In situations where many people are congregating in one space, it can be difficult for a security staff to keep physical watch over an entire venue. However, with a proper video surveillance setup, cameras can monitor the entire scene and allow the staff to respond swiftly to disturbances and suspicious activity. In other facilities, such as museums, security cameras can be used to monitor crowds, and also to prevent theft of valuable works. New IP network technology is improving the effectiveness of video surveillance, helping to bring enhanced security to the entertainment industry in many areas, including the following:

Crowd control – Large crowds can get testy. It takes a strong security effort to maintain order so the spirit of an event isn’t overshadowed by violence and disruptive behavior. A video surveillance network can play a significant role by providing security workers with clear views of the action, and the ability to focus in on specific scenes and individuals.

Safe entry and exit – When a hefty mass of people gets together for an event, entrances and exits can get bottled up with everyone trying to get to the same place at the same time. Video surveillance around these areas helps in lessening the impact of interruptions and disturbances for those coming and going.

Building/venue security – Surveillance cameras monitoring restricted access areas can help to ensure that only registered guests and staff members gain entry to specific areas of a facility.

Theft prevention – The presence of video surveillance can cut the odds of theft, be it from outsiders or employees, by deterring thieves and capturing them in the act.

Easy installation – IP surveillance cameras don’t require complicated cabling networks. The cameras can be mounted anywhere, and send feeds over the internet, making video surveillance more flexible and effective than ever before.

Remote access – An IP surveillance system with an NVR (network video recorder) enables security cameras to stream video over the internet. Security workers can monitor footage and control cameras remotely from any location.
