The times when an office building was just a place of work are long gone. Nowadays these facilities are often full of modern technologies, which makes them friendly to people and the environment. That is not only following the market trends but, above all, the expectations of employees. Therefore, this sector constantly increases their expectations. Ensuring security, the introduction of specific procedures, and protection against fraud in offices is a necessity.
Many years of experience of C&C Partners in complying with the demands for office buildings solutions, allows for flexible adaptation of the offered products to the individual clients' needs and applicable regulations. The delivered systems support the work and improve the safety of people in office buildings while optimizing the costs of managing them. The system can be introduced as a single solution or as an integrated security and communication management system, guaranteeing modular expansion and an open interface for other devices operating in an office building or a complex of office buildings. This approach guarantees the security of the investment and provides the possibility for its further development over time.
We offer a wide range of technological solutions that allow meeting the challenges such as:
- control of people staying and visiting the facility
- integration of access control with elevators
- managing access to specific parts of the building
- guest service
- monitoring of specific areas
- parking management for employees and visitors
The security of office buildings is accomplished by:
- an access control system,
- the intrusion detection system,
- intercom communication system
- integrated video surveillance with intelligent image analysis,
- parking management system.
Monitoring and managing these systems, as well as the fire detection system installed in buildings, is extremely easy and accomplished by using the PSIM + physical security management software. That saves costs and reduces the workload.
Security in office buildings is provided by several systems by C&C Partners. The first one is access control, which provides control over employees' access to specific rooms, including authorized rooms. Another feature of the system is the monitoring of the flow of people in the facility, access to elevators, as well as the management of key disposition. Another advantage of the system is the flexible expansion of the access control system to additional rooms or buildings. A perfect complement to the access control system is the option of complex guest service by the function of pre-preparation of access cards for conference or training participants, booking an appropriate number of parking spaces, and monitoring the movement of guests around the facility. In addition, the use of a card drop box at the exits from the buildings and parking areas allows for quicker handling of the process of issuing guest cards.
Additionally, the system enables double verification of people using access control cards, by cameras with a face recognition feature. In case of using a card illegally (stolen card), the operator will receive an automatic notification and have the option to automatically block the exits to catch the intruder.
Another system that improves security in office buildings is the video surveillance system of the facility. As part of this system, we offer video surveillance of the office buildings' external areas, communication routes, and important rooms. On the other hand, the advanced solutions developed by C&C Partners specialists enable the live observation of high-quality images by security personnel and the monitoring center. This functionality also allows the use of image analysis algorithms, including face recognition, license plates, and automatic alarming about the presence of an unwanted person in the building. Additionally, the system enables the registration of unauthorized persons entering the facility or a given room.
The monitoring functions are also used for the protection of the external area. It provides complete surveillance of the office's external area and video recording of intrusions by perimeter protection systems that include sensor cables and barriers mounted on the fence. The external area protection system is integrated with the CCTV system. Automatic arming and disarming of security zones take place according to the planned schedule.
The system that is strictly responsible for the security of a given facility is the intrusion detection system. It signals the entry of unauthorized persons to the office buildings. A. Another feature is the automatic arming and disarming of security zones based on the planned schedule. Information about the alarm is sent to the security services and designated medical personnel. The entire system is managed from the level of visualization, keypads, or access control readers. As a result, complete visualization of the detector's and zones' status is available at the security post. It can act as an integrated security system for company branches in different cities.
A large number of people in one office building requires efficient and fast communication. C&C Partners has developed an intercom and P.A communication system that provides voice communication in the facilitys' access and evacuation points, as well as broadcasting collective, individual messages, or background music. Another advantage of the system is the ability to communicate with help and information posts in the office building. Additionally, a call system is available in the toilets for disabled people. Both wall-mounted and desktop intercom stations can be adjusted to individual needs.
The comprehensive offer of C&C Partners includes a solution in the area of parking management. It provides control over access to the car park for employees and visitors and provides an adequate number of places for disabled people. Access control in the car park is based on long-range readers or license plate analysis. Finally, communication with the concierge/reception desk is possible via the intercom system. Such solutions ensure full control of vehicles entering the facility. The system also to check the availability and book parking spaces by the Internet.
Advanced building systems for office buildings offered by C&C Partners also include monitoring of environmental conditions in special rooms, such as archives and server rooms. The solution supports a wide range of gauges, including temperature, humidity, and flooding. The system allows generating alarms in the case of identifying conditions as critical, e. g. too high temperature. Moreover, the system enables automatic control of elements of other systems (e. g.: switching on of fans).
The offer of C&C Partners also includes solutions that enable reading and visualizing weather conditions, such as the temperature outside office buildings, reading the thickness of snow cover on the roof, etc. There is also an option to control building elements (e. g.: windows and doors).
As part of the integration with third-party systems, C&C Partners provides integration with elevator control systems, fire alarm systems, key-management systems. Thanks to this, you can significantly expand the functionality of building solutions in order to effectively manage office facilities. Wide integration possibilities allow keeping working time records. The record of working time of employees, divided into specific groups, supports organizing special activities, such as private visits, medical appointments, etc. The C&C Partners solution also has an advanced reporting system and the option of integration with HR and payroll systems.
Effective security management is primarily collecting information from all events in one place. For that purpose, there is a designed solution to monitor and manage all systems by one operator from the supervisor center. The WinGuard system is a PSIM + class software used to manage security processes in office buildings.
The PSIM + software enables effective monitoring and management of security processes. It integrates various subsystems, incl. access control, intrusion detection, video surveillance, intercoms, parking, working time records, or fire alarm. Thanks to the complex interface, it is possible to integrate any system necessary for the investor. Extensive incident reporting tools in the PSIM + software, provide the appropriate reporting of events, relevant information about the resources, and performance of individual systems. Adequate management of the accumulated knowledge translates into the possibility of optimal management of many facilities and ordering the procedures applicable in the office building, which results in cost optimization.
