Different security systems can be conntected and managed centrally. Some Security Management Systems have a filtering function and can generate alarms when events occur that match certain criteria.
There are multiple Security Management Systems available. Some are open to connect to third party systems; others are completely proprietary. The more open, the more intelligent links and logic can be built in. This enables your systems to work better together and help to manage risks more effectively.
An SMS is particularly suitable for organizations with limited complexity and diversity of systems. The investment in an SMS is also limited and the yield – more intelligence and a higher security level – is potentially great.
