Enhance Your Businesses’ Safety with LaMarco Systems during National Safety Month

Category: Industry News

June is an important month for businesses across the country as the National Safety Council (NSC) marks National Safety Month. The annual observance of National Safety Month reminds businesses of all kinds to prioritize safety measures for the well-being of employees, customers, and company assets.

In an increasingly uncertain world, businesses must invest in robust security systems and develop comprehensive safety plans to safeguard their operations. LaMarco Systems, a leading security company, understands the importance of commercial safety and integrated security systems and offers customized security solutions that address the unique needs of different types of businesses.

Let's explore different ways businesses can protect themselves, and how LaMarco Systems can be an invaluable partner in bolstering the security of buildings and internal safety.

Assess and Upgrade Your Security Systems:

Your company should have an effective business safety plan that includes a thorough evaluation of existing security systems throughout your facility. Any outdated or inadequate security systems and components can leave your business vulnerable to theft, vandalism, and other potential security breaches. LaMarco specializes in state-of-the-art security systems that encompass a wide variety of solutions, including:

CCTV IP Cameras. Closed Circuit TV Internet Protocol cameras ensure clear, high-resolution images with incredible zoom capabilities and full 360-degree panoramic views with easy-to-use software, analytics integration, and remote viewing from any device.

Access Control Systems. Access Control solutions provide the technology needed to deliver sophisticated security solutions for a range of applications, from single sites to globally distributed physical security management systems.

Alarm Systems. Fire alarm solutions provide support every step of the way — from design, permitting, setup, and installation, to technical support and training, to post-installation monitoring. Our NICET-certified professionals have extensive experience in fire alarm system engineering per National Fire Protection Association standards, as well as City of Chicago codes and State of Illinois villages’ requirements.

These and many more solutions are an example of what LaMarco specializes in. And by upgrading to advanced security technologies, businesses can significantly enhance their levels of protection, and reduce and deter potential threats.

Implement Access Control Systems:

Controlling access points to your businesses’ premises is a crucial aspect of commercial building safety. Unauthorized entry can compromise sensitive areas and compromise the safety of employees and valuable company assets. LaMarco Systems offers advanced access control solutions that enable businesses like yours to monitor and manage entry points effectively. From key card systems to biometric scanners, businesses can ensure that only authorized personnel have access to restricted areas, which can enhance security and reduce the risk of unauthorized incidents. Here are some solutions to consider:

Door Entry. Making sure that your door entry is secure is security 101. Door security can come in many different forms, from key card access to turnstiles. A secure door presence can help maintain stability and limit access to your physical space. Part of creating a secure environment is maintaining an even and authorized flow of people into and out of your space. This can be controlled by things like key cards, a front desk operator, or a pin code. No matter how you do it, door entry and security are key.

Indoor Systems. Once you’ve made sure that your doors are secure, it’s time to make sure that the systems within your physical space are secure as well. This can range from everything such as elevator controls to interactive maps to security cameras.

When you can secure your doors you can better secure your indoor space. However, it’s also important to make sure that the systems you have in place are well integrated with every other part of your security plan. This involves making sure that key card access that works at the door extends to all places necessary within your space or making sure that all of your security cameras are linked to a single, secure system that is easily accessible from multiple locations and devices.

Gate/Garage Control. Controlling the flow of traffic into your space is crucial for maintaining stability and security. Part of doing that is securing your gate or garage. Like with door security, maintaining a stable and secure point of access to parking structures that may be part of your space is crucial for good security systems.

Like with indoor systems, you’ll want to make sure that your cameras, key card access, and other systems are linked to a single, secure network that is easily accessible from multiple locations and devices. However, since gates and garages can sometimes be separate from your space, it may prove difficult to link these systems together, and you may want to consider using a separate system for your gate or garage.

LaMarco’s access control solutions provide the technology needed to deliver sophisticated security solutions for a range of applications from single sites to globally distributed physical security management systems.

Install Video Surveillance Cameras:

Video surveillance is an indispensable tool for business safety, providing real-time monitoring and recorded evidence in case of security incidents. LaMarco Systems offers a wide range of surveillance camera systems, including high-definition IP cameras, panoramic cameras, and thermal imaging cameras. These cameras not only act as a deterrent, but they can also capture crucial footage that can aid in identifying perpetrators and solving crimes. By strategically placing cameras in critical areas, businesses can maintain constant vigilance over their premises and ensure a safer environment for employees and customers. Check out some of our effective solutions:

Cloud-based video surveillance. This solution is software that allows you to view video surveillance anywhere, on any device, at any time. Since technology is continuously evolving, the ways in which we keep our property and information safe are also changing. Cloud-based video surveillance allows a business to keep a trusted eye on its assets at all times, saving both time and money.

IP Cameras. Security cameras are at the forefront of most security systems. No matter the size of the building or space being monitored, LaMarco’s CCTV-IP solutions ensure clear, high-resolution images with incredible zoom capabilities and full 360-degree panoramic views with easy-to-use software, analytics integration, and remote viewing from any device. One of our partners, Avigilon, leverages advanced AI and video analytics that enhance the quality and impact of what’s captured on these cameras.

Wireless Security Cameras. The wireless security camera was somewhat of a revelation when it was first rolled out into the world. For the first time, remote access and off-site video storage were becoming more and more of a possibility…and more affordable every year. The wireless camera turned video security on its head. Business owners could now monitor their security remotely, integrate it with tools like Alexa, set up off-site cloud-based video storage much more easily, and even have easier integration with machine learning tools.

Wired Security Cameras. Wired security cameras are how security cameras have been deployed since they were first invented. There have been many innovations in camera technology, video resolution, and camera quality over the years, but the premise of wiring up a camera to a power source and having an internal connection and storage for the video has been around for a long time. With all of this history, wired security cameras are reliable and still the most common. And, since the connection is internal and hardware-based, they’re typically more secure.

Video is essential to any security operation today, enabling visual management of a facility and its vulnerabilities. LaMarco’s video surveillance solutions can give your premises the security it needs and give you the peace of mind you want.

Integrate Alarm and Intrusion Detection Systems:

Early detection of security threats is paramount for effective business safety. LaMarco Systems’ comprehensive security solutions include advanced alarm and intrusion detection systems that are customized to meet the specific needs of each business and can be integrated to offer more control, ease of use, and convenience. These systems provide instant alerts and notifications in the event of a fire, unauthorized access, motion detection, or other security breaches. Take a look at several great solutions:

Fire system monitoring and rapid alarm response. LaMarco’s Fire Alarm solutions provide support every step of the way — from design, permitting, setup, and installation, to technical support and training, to post-installation monitoring. Our NICET-certified professionals have extensive experience in fire alarm system engineering per National Fire Protection Association standards, as well as City of Chicago codes and State of Illinois villages’ requirements.

BluePoint Alert Solutions. Also known as Affordable Rapid Emergency Response System (RERS), it instantly notifies emergency responders and building occupants of an emergency situation, expedites a rapid response, and empowers people to make more informed decisions faster to save lives.

Intrusion detection. LaMarco’s intrusion detection solutions use advanced technology to ensure the highest quality systems available – from world-renowned partners like Bosch. From small applications to large, high-security programs, we have a full range of products that guard against intrusion that are evaluated, implemented, and can be installed to manage seamlessly.

Safeguard your business and/or the facilities you manage against fire and natural disasters, trespassing, theft, burglary, and other risks with reliable, state-of-the-art security from LaMarco.

Leverage Remote Monitoring and Management:

In an increasingly digital world, businesses can benefit from remote monitoring and management solutions. LaMarco Systems offers cutting-edge technologies that allow businesses to monitor their security systems remotely, providing peace of mind and enabling quick responses to security incidents even when business owners are off-site. Remote monitoring systems can be integrated with other security measures, such as access control and surveillance cameras, ensuring comprehensive oversight of your business’s premises. Take a look at these solutions that help bring this to life:

Cloud Integration. Cloud systems can help to bridge the gap between different types of security systems. Cloud systems can put all of your security information in one place that can be easily accessed by anyone – even remotely – with your permission. Cloud technologies can be integrated with physical systems, as well. When it comes to cloud integration with physical systems, this is primarily for things like storing video, information, and much more.

Interconnecting video systems to provide remote access. Cloud solutions can tie it all together. Whether your company consists of one building or several buildings spread out over a wide geographic area, cloud solutions can enable users to access security systems — such as captured video surveillance — with control and ease, viewed anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

All-in-one AI cloud-based IoT and security platforms. Designed for residential, SMB, and enterprise organizations, they offer deep monitoring of all connected devices and events, notification of risks, and automatic corrective action. Systems work on any device, from anywhere, and anytime. No software is required and the simple and intuitive interface doesn’t require any training.

LaMarco Systems brings the latest modern cloud technologies to make security easier to use, more accessible, integrated, and more flexible in order to expand the applications as your company needs to change or grow.
