Utilizing intelligent security systems has a number of benefits including adaptability and reduced need for large amounts of personnel. For anyone who is interested in security systems, moving towards intelligence as a core feature seems necessary to keep up with the times. One benefit of intelligent security systems that often gets ignored however is system integration and the power of integrative security tools. Security systems that are able to intelligently work together are much more reliable, user-friendly, and cost-effective, so it’s important that we understand why system integration is such a big deal.
Time Saving and Efficiency
Security has, traditionally, been tied to manpower. The more personnel you can have available, the better your odds are. Unfortunately, this methodology is cost-prohibitive and difficult to manage. Instead, having a centralized system that is easy for a single employee to monitor isn’t just cost-efficient, but it gets the job done better as well.
System integration allows for these centralized systems, where something like an Intelligent License Plate Reader can work alongside an Intelligent Vehicle Occupant Detector system to create an effective means of tracking vehicles.
An Easy Path to System Integration
It’s always been difficult to really do anything with system integration—until very recently. In the past, you would have had to purchase all of your security systems from the same vendor in order to make them integrate, which is prohibitive and would limit your options. While Gatekeeper’s tech does easily integrate from system to system, it can also work alongside security technology from other vendors, allowing you to create the system you want to use.
If you’ve already installed entry point control software or hardware, you’re in luck. Gatekeeper’s security technology can pair up with a huge variety of these kinds of technologies, including biometric systems like fingerprint scanners. Our Gatekeeper Service Interconnect Protocol (GSIP) makes integration easy and can be used with most security systems. A good approach to security means putting the power in your hands to choose what works best for you.
