In the Commercial/Industrial sector, companies' needs go beyond the basic physical
security system. Due to the variety and complexity of most commercial/industrial
companies, the security system can go from simple to very complex.
Most of these companies combine Access Control, Video surveillance, and Intrusion
systems to have a complete solution for protecting their people and their assets.
Fire protection is also a required part of the security and safety system found
in Commercial/Industrial companies. There is a greater need for an evacuation plan
in case of accidents, fire, spills, etc.
Commercial/Industrial includes but is not limited to: Manufacturing, construction,
commercial buildings, chemical plants and public utilities to name a few.
There are some challenges with this sector as most companies have to meet certain
Commercial/Industrial standards. The security and safety systems have to be reliable
with an uptime close to 100%. This requirement is met by our high availability and
disaster recovery components. In addition, companies have to have a very specific
and well defined process of evacuations and accounting of their personnel.
Other challenges are outdoor installations and extremely hot and/or cold temperatures.
This requires system components that function across wide ranges of temperature,
humidity and exposure to foreign matter such as dust, grease, etc.
No matter how diverse your business is, all of these issues and more can be addressed
using integrated solutions from Tyco Security Products.
Integrated Access Control, Video Surveillance, Intrusion and Fire
An integrated Access control, Video surveillance, Intrusion and Fire protection
system provides a complete solution for the commercial/industrial business. Tyco's
solutions are well positioned for this market sector with their ability to integrate
all of the required components.
Another advantage offered by Tyco's Access control and Video systems is an open
SDK (Software Development Kit) for partners or end users' special or custom integrations.
Tyco's access control systems provide a very rich feature set such as alarm management
with customer operator messages, antipassback, mustering, intrusion zones, area
lockout, clearance filter, logical/physical convergence, high level of clearances
and privileges to control who has access to what and when.
Most companies in this sector are starting to adopt US government standards as their
own such as smart card technologies, PIV, FIPS, etc.
Using Tyco Systems to handle specific situations in the Commercial/Industrial sector
Tyco Security Products' unique features make the solutions ideal for this sector:
Area Lockout: Allows the system to prevent anyone who may have been contaminated
in one area to enter another area and thus contaminate it. This can translate into
a huge expense and lost time. This simple feature can save time and money and warrant
the investment in a Tyco integrated security system.
Clearance Filter: Is a feature which can be used in a case where an area
needs to be locked out to ALL personnel except those that are qualified. This can
be done by changing the clearance level of the readers associated with the area
and not having to change clearances to individual cardholders. This is a very efficient
way for a security administrator to change who has access to an area without touching
the cardholders' database.
Mobile reader: The reader can operate in either a connected (wired or wireless)
or disconnected operation (using local database) for transportation, classroom or
training attendance, mustering, etc.
Video Analytics: Using Tyco solutions and some video analytics from our partners,
some companies have created logical fences; monitor directional traffic flow (wrong
way), speed and size of objects, and objects left behind can all trigger alarms
and/or events to signal trouble to the system and to the operators.
With an integrated solution from Tyco Security Products we can provide a proven
application for your unique business requirements.
