VIDEO MONITORING FOR ALARM VERIFICATION AND ACCESS CONTROL
With CERTAS care, you can rest assured that all necessary measures are taken in case of an emergency, every hour and under all circumstances.
CERTAS video offers you professional alarm management and an efficient access control. Experienced Certas dispatcher at the remote monitoring centre can quickly verify an alarm or reliably identify a person using video images.
An alarm signal gives Certas dispatchers access to your video channel and enables them to verify the alarm. In this way, a false alarm can be quickly ruled out and the necessary emergency and rescue forces can be called up without the need for an intervention company to be sent for on-site alarm verification. With CERTAS video the reaction time is significantly reduced.
An efficient access control is an important security measure for commercial buildings, particularly for high risk premises like banks. CERTAS video allows a secure opening and closing by matching exactly the person in front of the bank with a reference picture on file. The Certas dispatcher will only open the doors by remote control if everything he sees is absolutely secure.
How does CERTAS video work for alarm verification?
1. ALARM SIGNAL
An event such as burglary, glass breakage or fire triggers an alarm.
Transmission of video images to the remote monitoring centre, verification of the alarm signal. If a situation cannot be clearly verified, an intervention company is sent there.
3. INTERVENTION ON THE PREMISES
Mobilization of the necessary intervention forces (private and public). If the video pictures are showing a crime in progress, Certas will inform the police immediate.
Remote surveillance of the intervention, final report.
How does CERTAS video work for access control?
Access request at the door by badge or code identification. The Certas Alarm monitoring centre is called.
Access verification with video: the person requesting access is identified. The door will be opened by remote control. If the person has no right to access, the doors remain closed. If problems arise, the Certas dispatcher will execute the contingency plan and inform the police if necessary.
If authorized access is granted, the Certas employee tracks the person's path via video until he or she leaves a previously defined zone.
Controlling: reports on «no-access» situations and the measures that were undertaken are mandatory.
«Our company is located in an industrial zone and is completely fenced in. The other night, from Saturday to Sunday, there were uninvited visitors. The alarm system's transmitters triggered an alarm and the video cameras filmed the scene. Thanks to the immediate transmission of alarms to the remote monitoring centre, the Certas employee was able to clearly verify the alarm by means of a video sequence. He immediately called the police and the private intervention service. The burglars were placed and the damage was minimized thanks to immediate intervention.»
Reto, 49, managing director
«As a bank, we attach great importance to the safety of our employees. We practice remote opening of our branches with the 4-eye principle of Certas: When the first employee arrives in the morning, the remote monitoring centre is called. The Certas employee checks the video image, compares the person with the list of authorized employees, confirms the name in the system and opens the door by remote control. It tracks the employee's path until he or she reaches the secure area. This is an important element of our daily security.»
