Authorized entry into a secure location can turn on lights and disarm the security system, this access is also recorded on a Video Surveillance system for review at a later time. Once a secure area is no longer in use the security system is automatically armed and the lights are turned off.

An integrated security solution can tie together multiple sites into a single managed system or make various systems operate as one. As systems grow the need to integrate them increases in order to make them a more manageable solution.
