Integrated Security Systems
Whether it’s for general safety , healthcare security or information privacy, establishing a reliable building security network that ensures the overall safety of personnel and guests should be a priority for every business or institution.

- Security Cameras
- Door Access
- Emergency Call Boxes
- Nurse Call
- Wander Management
- Background Music/Sound-Masking

Deter, Detect, Document
Your business should have layers of methods to ensure safety. It starts with understanding your risks and ends with a solid combination of operational, technical, and physical processes.
Properly designed, security networks can save time and money. While we recommend building in measures to deter intrusion, we also advise customers to take steps to detect intrusion and train employees to recognize and document suspicious activity.
Building Security into Your Existing Plan
According to the National Infrastructure Advisory Council, your building resilience should cover everything from entries to transportation routes, communications and power, and every business transaction in between. Our security networks will strengthen your business' resourcefulness and adaptability, allowing for rapid recovery. Additionally, these security measures include post-incident learning to better respond to future incidents.
Using Building Information Modeling (BIM) to Integrate Security Systems
Building Information Modeling (BIM) can be used to safely and virtually determine the best way to integrate security systems by examining your floor plans and keeping your egress plans up to date. Understand where you can incorporate architectural elements (such as corners, building facades, signage, and so on) into a building security plan. Experts warn against using features like fake cameras or overt signage to ward off would-be violators. These are not only ineffective, they can be in violation of codes and laws.
As you use building information modeling to integrate your security systems, consider the benefits of safety-focused initiatives, regular updates, and your building exterior. We discuss those in more detail below.
Provide Safety Without Fear
In most environments, safety features should make your visitors feel just that: safe. There can be a fine line between feeling safe and feeling alarmed. Patients should feel safe so they can concentrate on wellness; students should feel safe so they can focus on learning. Safety features such as security cameras, blue call boxes, secured building entries or manned reception areas are all overt yet common ways to send a message of safety.
Update Your Security System Regularly
It’s essential for everyone that your facility’s security and safety mechanisms are kept updated. Facility managers should make this an ongoing investment, always looking for new technology to stay ahead of security breaches. It’s important to work with professionals who can help you build flexibility into your security and safety plans, enough to allow modification and expansion as needed.
Perimeter and Beyond
As you survey the exterior of your building, pay attention to blind spots, or areas out of a security camera range. When it comes to entrances and exits, consider these easy but powerful safety measures:
- Limit building access
- Use strategically placed security cameras so you have the maximum coverage. Lemberg is a certified Axis camera system installer.
- Light all dark areas such as parking lots, break areas, stairwells, hallways. Use motion activated lighting to save energy costs.
- Keep vegetation and landscaping well-trimmed to remove potential hiding spots and hidden window access.
- Install sound masking and cybersecurity measures to keep digital information and conversations, such as those between patient and doctor, private and secure.
Security System Training
Be sure you provide adequate training for all employees. This includes providing exit plans and training on exiting a building, sweeping the building for stragglers at the end of a day, deliveries, and information storage.
