PROJECT TOO BIG? WE’RE HERE TO HELP
HS Tech Group starts every project with you. Our team will sit down with you and ask a series of questions to learn more about your needs. By asking these questions upfront, we can guarantee the functionality our clients are looking for while determining which technology is available or customizable, feasible for use, and implementable within the budget.
We realize that technology is always changing; that’s why we promise to deliver a solution that will work and be supported for years to come. The infrastructure that we develop and deploy for each project will allow future expansion and upgrades while still being functional, easy to operate, and transparent to the end-user.
Security begins with how you control access to your business.
Access control is the key to ensuring your building is secure at all times. Also known as automatic door locks, this system will put you in complete control of who has access to your space. With the ability to customize access credentials, you determine how and when specified individuals can enter your building. Always know what’s happening at your entry points thanks to detailed entry & exit time reports or real-time alerts when someone attempts to gain access without permission. Your team’s security is essential to our team, and access control is a necessary step to ensuring your building is secure at all times.
Eliminate the need for costly rekeying your building when traditional keys are lost with access control installation. These systems use credentials to authenticate a person at an entry point. When an access credential is lost, it can simply be deactivated to prevent unauthorized access without replacing the system itself, unlike traditional lock and key systems.
Credentials are available in various forms and can be customized based on a business’s needs. Common access credentials typically include proximity cards, key fobs, and pin codes, but advances in technology have also introduced finger scanning, facial recognition, and other advanced options that can be used to gain access to a building. When deciding which credentials to choose, HS Tech Group will work with you to determine the best option for your business. We consider your desire for convenience, level of security, and budget to ensure you get the access credentials that are right for your needs.
Access control systems are capable of being easily integrated into the other systems of your building. Working together, your access control and security system upgrade the ease of access to your facility for those with credentials without compromising the security. With one swipe, approved personnel will be able to disarm the security system and unlock the entry point for access. When access control overlays with video surveillance systems, your system can capture video clips at every swipe to supply visual verification on entry. Access control integration options are endless and customizable to meet the needs of your business.
Cloud-Based Hosting & Management
Invest in convenient, effective security with cloud-based access control. When your servers are hosted on the cloud, you will be able to securely access them from virtually anywhere using your login credentials. Whether you’re on a computer or smartphone, you can remotely lock or unlock your building, add users, and more. Gone are the days of having to drive back to the office because you can’t remember if that one door was locked thanks to the cloud.
In addition to hosting, HS Tech Group can also manage the cloud servers for your business. When we manage your servers, you will still be able to access them remotely but will have the added benefit of our team updating users, scheduling credentials, and offering other remote support for you.
Access Control Encryption
Security doesn’t end at entry points in the digital age. More than ever, it is important to ensure that the data associated with an access control system will be secure, and that’s where encryption comes in. The best option is to have your information run through an encryption algorithm to protect user data and your system. By encrypting your access control system, the integrity of your system will be able to be better maintained while still authenticating users.
Audio & Video Entry Systems
Increase the security and convenience for residents with audio and video entry systems. These systems allow residents to clearly see their guests before admitting them for entry, but that’s only the beginning of what they’re capable of. Thanks to the integration with mobile apps, residents will be able to access these systems from their phones. The connectivity between the app and the entry system will not only add convenience to resident entry methods but will also reduce the overhead costs of building owners.
Always have an eye you can trust watching your business.
Video surveillance can be a great addition to any security system. In the past, surveillance footage has been limited to watching the break-in or vandalism after it happened. Thanks to advances in technology, video surveillance can now play an active role in the security of your building. Once you install an active surveillance system, you or the authorities will be alerted as soon as there is activity on your site. Enjoy the peace of mind knowing your building is being more than just watched but guarded by a reliable system.
With the digital age came digital cameras. The switch from analog to digital has not only made installations easier but has allowed for improvements in the quality of recorded footage. Compared to the grainy, pixilated images of analog cameras, the digital options offer more megapixels meaning crisper images, even when zoomed in to focus on a subject.
Having the right kind of storage is essential to ensuring that you can secure and access the video footage that your business might need. Two of the most common devices used to record and store footage are Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and Network Video Recorders (NVRs), each with its benefits. DVRs are typically better for single-site installations where there won’t be any need for expansion, and footage will only need to be retained for a few weeks. NVRs, on the other hand, have the potential for expansion with no limit to the number of cameras they can be connected to and the greater storage capability.
Cloud-based recording is an additional option for recording footage. DVR footage can be stolen if thieves know where to look. With cloud-based recording, this footage is backed up to help preserve the video in the event of a break-in or the corruption of the recording device’s hard drive.
Gone are the days of having to sift through hours of footage to find one specific frame, thanks to video search options. These search options allow you to search through hours of footage with ease by inputting physical descriptions of the person or vehicle. Face recognition technology paired with the ability to search based on appearance characteristics can help you accurately compile the specific footage you need, even if it takes place over several weeks.
Act on every situation with a system that knows what to look for.
Enhance your video surveillance with a system that will analyze your security footage for you. Video analytics work hand-in-hand with your surveillance system and security personnel to ensure that every irregular event is noticed. Through pre-set rules and self-learning technology, your system will be able to alert your security team when there are events they should be aware of. Never worry about missing suspicious activity again when you have Artificial Intelligence on your side.
Analytic Rules & Alerts
Rules are usually in place to keep us safe, and that is no different when applied to video analytics. By setting rules up, HS Tech is able to program video surveillance systems to look for specific events and then deliver alerts when those events happen. From unattended briefcases, unauthorized entrance to off-limit areas, or someone covering a camera, there are rules for almost any situation that you could think of.
Through advanced pattern detection technology, these self-learning video analytics will upgrade your security team’s monitoring effectiveness by producing proactive, real-time alerts. The system will actively monitor and accurately recognize the movement of people and vehicles while ignoring movement that is irrelevant. This ability to continuously monitor and recognize allows the system to learn from the very first day, constantly reducing false positives and ensuring alerts are meaningful.
License Plate Capture & Recognition
With infrared illumination and visible light filtering, video surveillance systems are able to identify vehicles and their license plates with astounding accuracy. When vehicles enter the determined area, analytics will be able to automatically read and transcribe the license plate information from the video feed. After transcribing the license plate number, the data will be linked to the footage, meaning it can easily be compared to watch lists or searched for later by security operators.
Video monitoring is essential to stopping events before they happen. By utilizing video monitoring, you will be able to see and interact with suspicious events in real-time, taking action to stop them in their tracks. By incorporating analytic cameras and speakers in your surveillance system, you or your security personnel will be able to speak, activate strobe lights, or contact authorities remotely to respond to the situation. This active approach to video surveillance helps to ensure your building’s security without compromising your security team’s safety.
