Situational Awareness

If you own a business, you probably have a bevy of cameras and other monitoring systems to stay on top of what happens inside your facility. Of course, with every good monitoring system also comes a way to see what the notification system sees — what would be the point otherwise? It’s not good enough to wait for your station’s guardian angels to detect potential risks and determine when an alarm needs to be raised, but you’re not always going to be around a centralized location (like an office) to check on the feeds.

The question is, how do you keep up with what’s happening on your premises without wasting precious time and energy? Fortunately, contemporary media technology and application development have saturated our daily lives to a depth and degree that makes it easy to receive emergency mass notifications on your home computer, tablet or smartphone that can notify you and others of the essentials on the fly or in the comfort of your own home. In addition to notifications, you can even manually monitor your camera feeds and check up on the status of your monitoring systems in a matter of seconds — all with that pocket-sized device in your hand.

Emergency mass notification systems aren’t exclusive to informing just you, however. You can keep personnel and clients on your premises safe with mobile push emergency notifications as well as strategically placed TV displays and distinguished auditory cues to efficiently communicate an unfolding situation for the quickest response times. Remember: Your cameras have no judgment of their own, and what good is a security system that can’t send the message?

Staying on Top

There are many ways to stay on top of what’s happening on your premises, whether it’s to do with customers or the employees themselves. It’s essential to keep an eye on the interactions that happen inside as well as out for the safety of everybody involved, as you never know when something will happen. As an entrepreneur, the last thing you want is a lawsuit or liability that can hold your business back.

Here are a few ways that ASAP Security Services can keep you, employees and clients connected:

1.Mobile Emergency Mass Notifications and Monitoring

Your security systems can be linked up to a program that conveys important information to the mobile devices of multiple personnel. Applications that offer this functionality can allow not only remote monitoring and status checking, but also give the user a degree of remote power of the positioning of cameras, among other features.

2. Real-Time On-Site Emergency Notifications

Not every facility will allow their employees to carry a phone on them, or if they do, the phones won’t always have reception or a usable connection. Even so, phones aren’t always the most efficient option, as the case would be in a foyer or central hub where display fixtures can be rigged to inform occupants of precautions and warnings.

3. Auditory Cues

We all know about this one! Without fire alarms, intrusion klaxons and all manner of chirps, beeps and wails, a lot of people would have difficulty detecting a fire, break-in or system failure in a timely fashion. These don’t have to just be an on-site deal, as you can also have them linked to any of your personal devices so you instantly understand what’s happening without even checking.
