It also applies to cybersecurity, where automation is becoming more commonplace to swiftly and efficiently respond to attacks and eliminate threats.
For home security, for instance, this means that users can remotely detect whether their house has been broken into or interfered with while they’re at work or on holiday. They will receive information if a door has been opened, lock broken or light turned on, which can then be automatically or manually relayed to the police. It could also proactively warn users about potential security flaws, such as doors that don’t shut properly or smart locks that have developed a fault. Other smart security systems might be programmed to alert the user or the police if it is smashed or deactivated.
Smart doorbells are also becoming more common, which let users know when someone is approaching their front door and can let them speak to them remotely—they’re also the fuel of a million horror stories of mysterious figures approaching doorways in the dead of night!
In an office environment, employees and visitors can be give smart keycards that provide them only with access to areas for which they permission to enter, direct them to the right lift to get them to their destination. In this way, building managers can better control who enters a building, and where they are permitted to enter.
At Intelligent Building Europe 2021, you can discover best practice when it comes to smart buildings in a full programme of seminars and presentations. Better still, you can complement that with converged security knowledge at the co-located IFSEC International 2021, which you can enter for free with your event badge.
