Access control systems can play a significant role in any emergency evacuation
A building’s physical security systems will play a vital role whenever a fire or other emergency occurs in a building or facility, including here access control, video surveillance and intrusion detection. And the way in which these systems work together can help ensure a safe and orderly evacuation and response, experts have argued.
Integrating security systems like access control, mass communication systems and video surveillance can not only streamline emergency evacuations through automation, but directly influence positive outcomes in the event of a fire or lockdown.
Integrations can improve any building’s lockdown evacuation; the minute a life safety alarm is activated, video surveillance cameras can send visual information directly to local police to optimise their response. Simultaneously, access controls can activate to lockdown the area of the building containing the threat, while communication systems send evacuation instructions via text. Because these three security systems were integrated, people on the premises can be quickly evacuated in an orderly fashion.
