Access control systems address one of humanity’s oldest needs: how to keep certain people out of a particular space while allowing others in. Guards, dogs, high walls, fences, tripwires, and simple pin tumbler locks once fulfilled that role. Today, though, businesses and residential areas more commonly turn to access control systems.

Few business owners or enterprise managers have a hard time understanding the idea behind access control. At its most basic, access control involves keeping people without the proper credentials out of sensitive areas. Everyone knows that you can’t have an interested interloper entering your property at any time, and access control helps safeguard against that. The real questions start when clients begin to wonder which configuration or system is best. Read More »
Privacy matters quite a bit to a large number of people. Some 150 countries had codified a right to privacy in their constitutions. And nowhere has the debate over what constitutes a right to privacy raged as fiercely as in the United States. As government surveillance capabilities have increased, private businesses that want to keep their facilities secure have started asking themselves a question: Is surveillance with security cameras legal?

When Valencia Shores, a senior-living community for active residents ages 55 and up, needed security, it turned to AT&I Systems.

That’s why Valencia Shores turned to AT&I for the installation of a high-definition surveillance system powered by Avigilon Analytic Technology. Read More »
In an ideal world, entry management would be easy. Tenants would always pick up their phones, on-site security guards would never let their attention drift, and the only visitors attempting to gain access would be utterly upright do-gooders. But we don’t live in an ideal world. Sometimes tenants can’t answer calls. Sometimes security guards let their attention wander. And sometimes the people trying to gain access to a property don’t have your best interest in mind.
At one point, common wisdom held that having actual on-staff or contracted guards at a property was the best security money could buy. Time and tough experience has proved otherwise in many situations. Sadly, guards’ commitment and personal engagement vary from person to person. What many property managers need is an always-on, high-functioning, multi-platform technological solution. Read More »
There’s a lot of excitement around artificial intelligence (AI) today — and rightly so. AI is shifting the modern landscape of security and surveillance and dramatically changing the way users interact with their security systems. But with all the talk of this potential, you might be wondering: what problems can AT&I Systems and AI help you solve today? Read More »
For many security systems, a telephone entry unit serves as an essential part of an access-control system. Eliminating the need for costly and unreliable security personnel, such units allow owners to easily admit guests. However, traditional telephone entry units have often caused as many problems as they have solved.
Any piece of equipment can prove inefficient if not properly implemented. Still, once you understand the problem points, it’s easy to minimize the so-called “x factors” that hinder security systems. Read More »
