Manufacturing factories grapple with a variety of security concerns above and beyond what most normal businesses face.
At SMG, we specialize in industrial security system installations and design for manufacturing facilities throughout the Chicago area. By designing a system with the specific risks and needs of your business in mind, we provide the highest level of protection.
In addition to burglaries, fire, and theft, manufacturers need to protect their employees from the inherent dangers of the manufacturing process. Thus, surveillance cameras are especially important in the world of manufacturing.
Manufacturing Camera Systems
Surveillance cameras have proven to be one of the best deterrents to crime in the form of both employee theft and burglaries. And in industrial environments, camera systems also improve the physical security of your employees. By periodically monitoring your personnel at work, you can identify dangerous habits and correct them before they become anyone gets hurt.
With modern security cameras, you can pull up live views of your plant from multiple angles at any time and from anywhere. And thanks to our video management software, you can store high quality recordings of your facility for virtually any period of time and access them from any device. Plus, advanced video analytics can identify and notify you at the first sign of a threat.
Industrial Alarm Systems
Alarms are an integral component of any business security system. Manufacturing facilities are filled with valuable machinery, raw materials, and merchandise, making them a prime target for thieves. By pairing access control systems with traditional intrusion detection systems, your factory will be safe from every kind of threat.
Industrial alarm systems are only as effective as their monitoring services. Our UL approved central station monitoring station is located in the heart of Chicagoland to provide the fastest possible response times. And our highly trained monitoring team is standing by 24/7, ready to spring into action the moment your alarm sounds.
With alarm systems to watch over your business after hours, you still need to protect the restricted areas of your property during the day. Access control systems do just that.
These systems allow you to adjust permission for each individual employee, granting or denying access at any time. You can choose from fingerprint and proximity car readers, fobs, and even smartphone Bluetooth systems. Plus, you’ll have records of every time an employee accesses a restricted area.
Industrial Fire Alarm Systems
Whatever the industry, fire poses one of the biggest threats to businesses. And for manufacturers, the risk can be even greater. Even a small fire can disable your machinery, slowing or even stopping production for months on end.
Thankfully, today’s industrial fire alarm systems are the most advanced the world has ever seen. Rather than simply waiting for smoke to waft into their sensors, some modern systems use lasers to detect smoke anywhere in the room. Others sense slight changes in heat or carbon monoxide. Once we’ve inspected your business, we can recommend the perfect combination of sensors to keep you safe.
To ensure the effectiveness of any fire system, regular inspections are a must. We have over 30 years of experience designing and inspecting industrial fire alarm systems. So whether or not we install your system, we can test it to make sure it’s working properly. For many businesses, doing so is even a legal requirement.
At SMG, we pride ourselves on the response times that our fire alarm systems make possible. To complement their sophisticated sensors, we’ve developed close relationships with several local fire departments. As a result, we have direct lines of communication that allow us to get our clients the help they need that much faster.
