Physical security systems do more than prevent unauthorized access to facilities, equipment and resources. They can improve operational process. For example, the real estate and facilities management department can leverage the data from access control and video surveillance systems to measure foot traffic in the facility, by location, by time of day. That data can be influential to building utilization models. In a retail environment, the data derived from an intelligent video system can help the marketing department understand customer dwell time and product display effectiveness. Physical security systems can help with health, safety and environmental management. Access control systems can provide real-time detection of people entering or leaving the premises - critical information in any emergency.
