Today, your commercial building is much more than just a structure. In fact, they are full of complex technology and systems. One of the factors that has had a significant change on the way building are inhabited is smart devices.
Want to learn more? If so, keep reading to see how smart buildings have caused an evolution in the commercial security realm.
With more and more building systems being internet connected, there is now a greater awareness of what’s going on inside than ever before. With video analytics, you can now monitor people on-site, and send notifications to specified users if something happens. Also, as buildings become smarter, the analytics will be able to find and identify behavior patterns while predicting scenarios. This allows you to take action before situations become actual security threats.
The Integration of Security Systems
In today’s digital age, what used to be a combination of several security systems, can now all be connected to a single, easy to use and convenient platform. As a result, you have the ability to make faster decisions and have more efficient security management in place. As the platforms continue to evolve, they may even begin to interact with each other, which means that an activity that is triggered by one of the systems automatically triggers a designated action in another.
Insight to Resource Use and Occupant Behavior
With the integration of building security systems, it means that data is able to be analyzed in the moment, and over time. This allows your security team to better understand patterns or occupants and to optimize and refine the security measures in place.
As you can see, building automation and smart technology is having a huge impact on commercial buildings. If you have yet to implement this technology, now is the time to do so.
