The sensor network that is required for our intelligent lighting system that runs on low voltage data cables is ideal for integration with advanced security systems. Sensors can be discretely placed where cameras are not appropriate, and motion detection continues to be monitored when the lights are off enabling abnormalities to be detected quickly.
Advances in Power over Ethernet (POE) technology allows for the operation of IP enabled CCTV cameras to work over the same intelligent structured cabling system that is already in place for the intelligent lighting system. Views from the cameras can be delivered to DVR systems, via web browsers or smartphone apps enabling images to be viewed anywhere at any time.
Door access systems that are controlled by swipe card, biometric or retinal readers, can be connected to the structured cabling system that delivers information to a central portal where the smart building’s data can be managed in a central application.
The system can be viewed remotely and if alarms are triggered immediate responses can be made. Lights can be turned on to investigate the situation without the deployment of a member of staff. The system is efficient and prioritises safety.
