How to make an informed decision for my business?
Choose the right manufacturer by asking these questions:
- How much money does the manufacturer spend on cybersecurity and data privacy annually?
- Do they have a dedicated cyber team and how large is that team?
Most manufacturers will claim to sell open platform-based products. In reality, hardware often can be integrated with just one specific software. You will have to determine whether it represents a benefit or a disadvantage for your business. Proprietary systems are usually user-friendly and robust, but lack on flexibility when it comes to software integration. A significant factor to consider, if you are yet unsure of your business’s future system requirements.
Look for an efficient cloud platform with these features:
- Dashboard showing connected doors and cameras’ statuses, number of online users, devices’ bandwidth usage, data collected in aggregate
- Real-time maps
- Email alerts
- Text alerts
A unified system refers to a single platform that fully integrates a variety of applications. In this context, one manufacturer is responsible for the communication of all your basic modules (alarm, video, access control, etc.).
Unifying various core security systems means:
- Seamless upgrades
- Consolidated reports
- Less failures between modules
- Unlimited access control options
Open API platforms offer great possibilities for advanced integration. What’s more, several systems offer custom development in collaboration with your team. An efficient way to capitalize on your investment.
