3 STEPS TO A SECURE BUSINESS

3 STEPS TO A SECURE BUSINESS

Manufacturing is a B-I-G business! By that I mean there are an incredible number of parts and variables that go into running a successful manufacturing enterprise. Here at Conzer Security, we work with many manufacturing companies and I have to admit, I get excited when we do. Seeing smooth operations is like watching a symphony!

Because of our exposure, we know that so many moving parts keep facility managers and supervisors on their toes all the time. In fact, it’s because of the constant motion that security is so important and we get involved with companies. Material, parts and people coming and going make it hard to keep track of everything.

Take Step 1 in Manufacturing Security Systems

Conzer Security comes in to work with the owners to develop a security plan that commonly includes use of a variety of security solutions like access control systems, CCTV and security camera systems, automatic door locks, IP security systems and even perimeter protection to protect warehouses filled with product. Getting the plan implemented and all the equipment installed is the first step to developing the peace of mind you want.

It’s all good until you get a call in the wee hours of the morning saying that the security alarm has been activated. Now if that alarm is sounding because of a break-in, the adrenalin is pumping. But if it’s a false alarm, you will likely be getting a bill in the mail because emergency responders are usually authorized to bill for false alarms, and the service fees can be hefty.

Manufacturing Security Systems, Step Two

That is the reason Conzer Security always guides our clients into taking Step Two, which is critical to preventing the majority of false alarms at your business. Did you know that one of the main causes of false alarms is human error? It’s easy to understand that it could be an employee error, but there are times when it could happen because of a vendor error. The solution is to make sure all users are properly trained and understand how to use the systems in place.>/p>

The following is a brief list of guidelines to consider in your training program:

  • Assign each employee (and vendors if needed) their own security code and train them in proper use of the system
  • Schedule regular refresher courses to keep all users informed about changes in the system or operation
  • Make sure materials and objects are not stored near motion detectors, and hanging signs, curtains and blinds are not affected by airflow or wind and weather.
  • Instruct anyone using a moving vehicle (like forklifts, cranes, carts, wagons and bins) to avoid hitting door sensors and motion detectors.
  • Maintenance staff should routinely check that windows and doors fit tightly and there is no excessive movement caused by airflow or weather.
  • Establish proper protocols for adding and deleting users on the systems that include a check and balance for security.
  • Promote a regular updating of passcodes and other security passwords.

Being consistent in both training for new users and refresher training will help you keep your facility secure and also help prevent the incidence of false alarms.

Manufacturing Security Systems, Step Three

When you work with professionals like Conzer Security on a security system for your business there is a definite Step Three to a security plan. While human error is a main cause of false alarms, another cause is lack of maintenance on the system. All equipment, no matter what kind or for whatever purpose, should be checked and maintained. Proactive and regularly scheduled maintenance can ensure that equipment continues to work properly and will be on the ready when needed.

Conzer Security inspection teams are available to support you with regular inspections of all the security systems from intrusion detection and access control to camera surveillance systems and CCTV systems. Our teams of technicians are a valuable asset in your ability to meet any regulatory compliance requirements, too.

You are in control. You can drive budget and operational efficiency by preventing any downtime and avoid unexpected repair costs. Conzer Security preventative maintenance and extended warranty agreements can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

Our customized wireless video surveillance system works wherever you are.

GET THE BEST VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM

IP Video Surveillance

IP video is radically changing perceptions and capabilities of video surveillance. IP Cameras provide the ability to dramatically increase resolution. What does this mean? This means that you can look at substantially larger areas and still get the detail you need. More clarity and detail is never a bad thing.

Another advantage of IP security systems is the ability to leverage existing infrastructure and support. The deployment of an IP camera security system will fit right into your existing network and integrate with your IT support organization. This allows the video surveillance application to be managed like any other and reduces the integration curve and support challenges.

An IP video security system can also use the same hardware and servers that you currently use so that they can be physically supported the same way your other servers are. However, IP video surveillance systems demand greater consideration and planning than do an analog system since you will be significantly impacting your network.

Count on Conzer Security for the right wireless video surveillanace system solution.

The company was founded in the network and server business and unlike many of our competitors who came from the Alarm and Lock World, we have an extensive knowledge of the network business. We possess the expertise required to successfully design security systems which will impact and reside on a network. This and the quality of our service is why we are different: when video surveillance went digital and began to reside on servers and networks, we were uniquely positioned to open a new division to provide solutions in the video surveillance arena.

Please give us a call or send us an email to discover the difference. Let us be your partner to help guide you to the right solution.

SCHOOL SAFETY ASSESSMENT IS THE FIRST STEP IN SCHOOL SECURITY

SCHOOL SAFETY ASSESSMENT IS THE FIRST STEP IN SCHOOL SECURITY

 Why have a school safety assessment?

We all know that schools are taking steps to increase safety. We see it in applications like access control security systems. Buzzers must be pushed and accessed granted on an individual basis at the entrances to a school building.

There are processes like every visitor must sign in at the front desk, wear a visitor’s badge, and be escorted throughout the building.

Alarm systems are becoming more common as well, often connected to the access control security system and the fire alarm system.

YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM CAN HELP YOU PREVENT ACCIDENTS

YOUR SECURITY SYSTEM CAN HELP YOU PREVENT ACCIDENTS

As a kid I used to drive through a town and one of the big businesses on the route had a huge sign outside with a scoreboard on it announcing how many days were accident free. Sometimes those numbers were in triple digits, other times they would have just started over with 1 or 2. Now, as an adult in the security business, I know how deliriously happy those triple digits must have made that company management and ownership.

WHAT DO SECURITY AND JOB TRAINING HAVE TO DO WITH EACH OTHER?

WHAT DO SECURITY AND JOB TRAINING HAVE TO DO WITH EACH OTHER?

Training, especially in the manufacturing industry, is critical. If training is not effective, almost every aspect of the workplace is affected:

  • Improper implementation of processes produces an environment for bottlenecks, slowing down of lines and workflow
  • Shortcuts and cutting corners can result in defective product and parts that don’t meet quality standards
  • Poor product quality can result in the waste of expensive materials
  • Violating SOPs can create significant safety risks for employees
