Essential Features of a Security System

With a rich history spanning over 40 years, JD Security has consistently served as a premier installer of business security systems, earning a reputation for reliability, professionalism & innovation. The essential features outlined in the following recommendations are crucial factors to consider when selecting a new system.

  • Intrusion Detection: detects and alerts responsible parties about potential security breaches or threats. Compatible detection devices include motion detectors, door/window contacts, or glass break detectors to detect unauthorised entry into protected areas.
  • Fire & Smoke Detection: security systems often integrate fire and smoke detectors to detect the presence of fire or smoke within a facility. When smoke or heat is detected, an alarm is activated to notify occupants and initiate emergency protocols.
  • Panic & Duress Alarms: these are designed to be activated discreetly in emergencies where individuals feel threatened or distressed. Panic buttons or special codes can trigger these alarms, alerting security personnel or authorities to the situation.
  • Partitioning: a partitioning function in a security system enables the division of the system into multiple sections or partitions, each of which can be independently managed and operated. This feature allows for customised security settings for different areas of a property or for distinct user groups, catering to the varied security needs within a building. For instance, in a mixed-use building, the office area can be armed at night, while the warehouse section remains accessible for late shifts. Access to each partition is controlled through specific codes, ensuring that only authorised users can manage the security settings of their respective areas. Additionally, a common partition feature allows for collective arming or disarming based on the status of associated partitions, enhancing the system’s flexibility. Partitioning is particularly valuable in enterprise security systems as part of a comprehensive defense strategy, enabling physical or logical separation of system components to bolster security and efficiency. This functionality is crucial in hardwired and commercial panels, providing essential granular control for complex facilities.
  • Integrated Access Control: it enables seamless control and management of access to secure areas within a facility.
  • Management Software: it provides advanced integration capabilities with other systems such as CCTV, Fire Systems, Lifts, Lighting Control, third-party access control systems, and automation.
  • Web Client: a web client allows users to access the system remotely using a web browser, eliminating the need for additional software.
  • Reporting: System software should be able to generate standard reports such as Users Arming & Disarming, Users Time-on-Site, and Muster Reports, which list users present in any system area when the report is generated. Entrance and Exit readers are utilised to create this report. User Access History and many more. For the technically minded, these sample reports can be used as templates to customise and generate other reports according to the customer’s needs.
  • Enterprise Mobility: an iOS or Android app to control the system, including arming and disarming, remote control of doors, inputs, auxiliaries, viewing system event logs, and more.
  • Scalability: the system should be deployable across multiple sites and locations. This distributed architecture promotes scalability by allowing the system to expand effortlessly across different areas or buildings while retaining centralised control.
  • Communications: 4G/5G, LAN, TCP/IP (Ethernet), email, SMS, fiber optic and Wi-Fi.

  • What are the Advanced Features of a Security System that I should consider?

    • Active Directory Integration: Azure Active Directory is already used as the main user management database, integrating many other business systems (Email, Payroll, Scheduling, etc.). Integrity can also leverage this centralised source of user data, delivering great cost-efficiencies to the organisation by negating the need for additional user data entry. Integriti operator training time is also significantly reduced.
    • Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR): managing parking efficiently is paramount, from searching for a vehicle using a partial licence plate number to keeping unwanted vehicles out of a car park.
    • BMS: – In addition to being able to directly control many third-party systems such as elevators, heating, cooling, and lights, Integriti is able to communicate with large Building Management Systems, giving it the ability to become an integral part of any smart building solution.
    • Biometrics – Biometric Access Control technology provides an increased level of security for building access control systems when compared to traditional card & card reader technologies. Integriti’s integrated platform facilitates a streamlined on-boarding process when integrated with third-party Biometric Access Control modules. The synchronization of users ultimately simplifies the on-boarding process, increasing System Operator’s overall efficiency.
    • Intercoms – Security & Access Control systems are often installed in conjunction with Intercom systems; as such, it’s of paramount importance that these systems are able to operate together.
    • Lockers – Utilising a synchronised user database, Integriti’s integrated platform facilitates seamless user management for Locker systems. User information can be solely managed from Integriti, meaning that System Operators do not need to maintain two separate databases. Additionally, Integriti’s powerful reporting tools can be utilised to develop reports specifically related to Locker events, giving system owners full awareness of which users have accessed which lockers and when.
    • Wireless Access Control – By integrating a Wireless Access Control system with Integriti, system operators do not need to manage multiple user databases. Synchronisation of users and access permissions allows Integriti to be the single interface for managing Wireless Access Control doors – mitigating the requirement to manage multiple platforms.
    • SMS – Integriti’s powerful communications capabilities allow for SMS sending from within the Integriti Software. Messages can be sent to any user or group of users, and can be sent on demand or via a range of different variables (e.g. time schedules). SMS sending can be incredibly powerful in situations where it is critical to notify all users on-site of emergency situations such as a fire drill, lockdown, or active shooter.
    • RTLS – Real-Time Location Systems are commonly deployed in high security situations, and allow Security Operators to maintain accurate status and location of Security Personnel in real-time. The RTLS integration with Integriti allows for status updates and location monitoring via the same graphical interface as every other aspect of the Integriti system (including integrated CCTV, Intercoms, etc.). While increasing security and safety of staff, this integration improves situational awareness of Security Personnel in high security situations.
