Scenarios... We are only the same because we are all different!
Box Clever Security Ltd
Let's just suppose...
You are a Systems Administrator responsible for all of your company's 12 Nationwide Office Buildings using a fob or card
entry system. You are based in london. How do you administer it to ensure the system runs effectively and is bang up to date?
What happens if an employee at the Birmingham office loses their fob? Does the secretary there keep spare ones lying around
in a drawer just in case? If none> are available are doors wedged open until you can visit and set up new fobs? Similarly, if a
new member of staff joins the Birmingham office are they just given the the fob which belonged to their predecessor?
With a networked system you could handle it all from your desk within minutes, without visiting a site!
One of our clients had offices in Nottingham and Birmingham and had a similar problem. It was commonplace for staff to spend
time at both offices. We discussed the problems with the Administrator and came up with an Access Control System which fully
fitted their needs.
The system was set up so that:
*The Administrator of the system based in Birmingham was able to (from the comfort of their own desk) arrange immediate
temporary or permanent access to Birmingham employees visiting the Nottingham branch.
*When new member of staff were employed at the Nottingham site, they were given an unregistered fob and asked to present
the fob to the reader at the front door. Although it failed to open the door initially, the fob's I.D.was logged on the system. The
Administrator (still at their comfy desk in Birmingham) could then activate the fob to the relevant access group... How's that for
your Carbon footprint?
Trade in your problems - For logical solutions
Let's just suppose…
You are responsible for the security camera systems in a chain of retail stores across the nation. One of your responsibilities is
to record incidents of shoplifting or assaults on staff as evidence to prosecute an offender. What happens when a security
alarmed fire exit is opened? Is there a clear indication within your security room to allow your security camera operators to
immediately display a camera in the relevant location to view the aftermath?
We set up an integrated system for our client where the opening of the fire exit triggered the camera to display automatically on
the screen of the security camera operator. We ensured the recording system had at least 5 seconds or so of 'Pre-alarm' video
recorded, allowing the person responsible to be apprehended.
