Often, installing locks, bars, and gates do little to decrease crime. Technology has over the years helped to enhance security solutions. With the advancement of security technology; the challenge that faced community safety, that is, how to turn public safety efforts from solely reactive to proactive; is now a thing of the past.
Why we use CPTED to keep society safe and secured.
At Opticom, we majorly practice Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) as part of a security design this can reduce the fear of crime. It can also reduce the actual incidence of crime and the perception that the area is conducive to criminal acts. Click here to read more on why CPTED is crucial in keeping communities safe.
In addition; with the continued ravage of the pandemic; the way we operate in public and private spaces has changed. This means that it’s time to implement new security measures to meet the current and future standards of living in our communities.
Below are some of the ways to aid keep communities safe and secured.
Remote Security Surveillance and Management
Security technology now offers more than just surveillance; with the advancement of security surveillance, home owners and security providers can keep track of who enters and leaves their premises. Also, the use of remote access from our state-of-the-art command centre, our seasoned virtual security officers, can help keep secure physical spaces and data while nobody is on site.
Our Security personnel are able to either grant or revoke permission to certain people immediately upon receiving notice. Security threats and health threats can be stopped as soon as they’re detected without any physical interaction or time wastage.
Thermal imaging cameras and temperature scanning
Due to the pandemic and the advancement of security technology, security cameras have become a staple of protection and the use of thermal imaging cameras drastically helps trace COVID-19 and monitor for symptoms. The facial recognition software in these cameras provide access to individuals as they enter the building while also scanning them for above average body temperatures.
Similarly, masks are now a requirement. The newer security cameras can also scan to see if people are wearing a mask and request that they put one on before entering a building.
Touchless access control
Modern access control uses facial recognition, motion detectors, or a phone app to unlock doors. The system can validate visitors and allow or deny access without physical interaction. The solution also lowers the spread of germs through high-frequency touchpoints like entry points of your building.
Technology can go a long way in helping you make your community more secure, but only if utilized properly. Keep up to date with the latest technology to make sure you stay ahead of the game and keep your residents safe.
