Security technology has undergone many changes over the past 20 to 30 years. In the past, video surveillance technology, sensor security, and other elements of a physical security system were primarily geared towards detection — that is, alerting the appropriate authorities about a break-in or other incident. Nowadays, with the increase of active shooter events and other violent incidents, the focus of physical security has shifted to proactive prevention or incident deterrence.
In addition, the world of technology has become more and more integrated with the rise of IoT (Internet of Things) devices, remote access capabilities, and advanced networking. As a result, effective security systems can no longer be “siloed” into different departments such as Information Technology, Operations Technology, and Physical Security. Individual elements of a security system, like Closed Circuit TV (CCTV), access control, and intrusion detection, can no longer function independently of one another. Instead, they must be integrated into a well-designed Physical Protection System (PPS) that serves as an integrated force multiplier.
At Beau Dietl & Associates, we take both cyber and physical security very seriously. For that reason, we’ve partnered with some of the best security technology companies and systems integrators in the world; and these partnerships enable us to offer clients the latest and greatest in security technology as part of our comprehensive protective solutions. In turn, these solutions allow our clients to proactively detect and deter threats before harm can be inflicted on their people or damage done to their physical assets.
Our Solutions Set
The many physical security options that we offer at BDA enable our clients to enjoy unsurpassed peace of mind with regard to their office, campus, or other workspaces. Our solutions set includes:
- Multi-camera, High Definition digital CCTV (H.264) with optional local NVR or cloud-based recording.
- Digital video surveillance systems that contain integrated thermal imaging, facial detection, motion detection, loitering detection, and license plate recognition. Such advanced capabilities form the “backbone” of our virtual detection/protection system.
- The ability to retrieve vital information from global terrorist watch lists and criminal databases.
- Access control systems with cutting edge authentication, anti-piggybacking, anti-tailgating, and anti-pass-back technology.
- Boundary penetration sensors such as glass-break sensors (acoustic, vibration, and metallic foil), sonic, electromechanical, infrared, and fiber optic.
Key Features of Our Systems
Apart from the raw technological power that our systems can provide, we’ve also made sure to incorporate two important components into each customized solution that we offer to clients:
Ease of use is an important factor for any system, and that principle certainly holds true when it comes to physical security protection. Even the most advanced video surveillance and sensor security system won’t be of much use if you can’t take advantage of the available features.
For that reason, we make sure that all of our systems are user-friendly and logical to operate. We can also help clients to navigate the basic features of each system and direct them on where to go to receive further assistance. A highly usable and intuitive system will aid in the quick reporting and closure of any incident, with minimal hassle.
2. Optimal Layout
It goes without saying that video surveillance equipment, sensors, access control systems, and other elements of an integrated security system must be placed in the right locations in order to yield maximum impact.
Our experts at BDA can help you to achieve the optimal layout for your security equipment for the best results. For instance, we’ll check your CCTV system to make sure that none of the cameras have a “blind spot” that could result in a break-in. Whatever the case may be, we’ll ensure that your security system is arranged with the best possible placement.
