Access Control and Panic Alarms
For anyone who works in a location that is open to the public—a school, the lobby of a business or office building, a hospital, a visitor center—it's essential to have access control and panic alarm capabilities:
An access control solution gives you control over who can enter and exit a specific location, such as a lobby area. A door with a lock is an access control system, but today it typically refers to a computer-based system that uses a special access card or electronic keypad. You have to have a valid card or know the code to get in.
JCT works with the leading providers of access control systems offering a wide range of features and options. You can integrate access control with video surveillance cameras, automatically capture images for badges, and use biometric (fingerprint) readers instead of cards. Create maps to monitor all locations using any device.
A panic alarm makes it possible to quickly and silently call for assistance without escalating a situation, for example, by shouting for help or placing a phone call.
The importance of panic alarms in enhancing safety and security is what led New Jersey to enact a law (known as Alyssa’s Law) requiring that all public school buildings be equipped with panic alarms able to alert law enforcement and first responders that an incident is taking place.
