Facing serious risks as consequences of unauthorised access on-site and workplace health and safety, Critical Infrastructure facilities require site management solutions that can ensure the security of its critical assets that power the community, the integrity of people on site and the safety of its workers.

Inner Range ensures that only authorised stakeholders are permitted in restricted areas. Additionally, staff can have access to restricted areas only during time periods where they have a valid reason to enter secured spaces.

Access to valuable or dangerous assets such as Medical Equipment and Pharmecutical Drugs can be tightly controlled with full access reports available to record detailed information regarding the entry into these controlled areas.

Safety of Patients and Staff – Access Control

Duress alarms can be raised from fixed or mobile duress buttons. When a duress alarm is raised, Guards, Staff and other stake holders can be immediately notified through the Communicator messaging applications which will broadcast SMS and email.

Video Surveillance integration can provide control rooms with immediate access to live and recorded video associated with the Duress Alarm displayed on a schematic map which shows the exact location of the incident.

Large Hospitals and healthcare facilities consist of dozens of intelligent building systems that need to integrate and operate harmoniously in order for the facility to function in a safe and efficient manner. Inner Range’s Enterprise platform supports full integration with a host of systems relevant to a healthcare environment such as Patient Management systems , Nurse Call systems , Management systems and Patient Management systems

Managing a complex array of building & health subsystems

Large Healthcare facilities require the services of hundreds of independent contractors who require access to the premises. In addition to its native functionality, Inner Range also seamlessly integrates with dedicated Contractor Management Systems. These systems ensure contractors are provided temporary access credentials and have complied with onsite Health and safety inductions. In addition, Contractor invoices can be reconciled with the actual time that contractors spend on site.

Analytics Integration

Reducing the time to acquire and interpret information, data analytic technology advances the intelligence of not only the security system, but also the building applications. Those systems use their own communication protocols, and Inner Range acts as a data aggregator to normalize that data. By communicating with other systems, the pattern recognition in the analytics can predict how and when events may occur and trigger efficient use of other resources. If the analytic recognizes trends of attendance, it can help control building lighting resources. In the past, intrusion and access control systems were ignored as being an expense, but now they can help create the intelligent building.

Access Control

Allowing the approved persons to be in the places that they need to complete their job is critical. But even more critical is preventing unapproved persons from accessing secure areas. This protects the people and assets of the organization and can also reduce other costs such as insurance.

Intruder Detection

Notifying the correct authority of unwanted persons in an area or on a property in an appropriate timeframe helps prevent loss. Escalation of specific events to the correct responder allows them to make better decisions for resolving the issue. Providing up to 14 levels of response to various alarm scenarios. The events that occur when an intruder attempts to gain access to a controlled area may need to be handled in unique ways. By providing those standard operating procedures for each type of event, responders can mitigate risks and liability.

Duress Alarms

Duress alarms are a critical component of Hospitals and Healthcare facilities to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both staff and patients on site. It is vital that in duress alarms are reported to a responding authority, facility management and other staff ensuring that appropriate responses are activated. These alarms may be a push button underneath the desk of a reception, patients room, call points, nursing stations or a wireless wearable duress alarm transmitter. Regardless of the location of the button, these systems trigger immediate notification of an event to first responders to assist the person in need.

Facial Recognition Integration

Access to an area is controlled by what you have (card or other physical identification), what you know (code) and who you are (biometric identifier). Integration with a video surveillance system allows the analytics to be integrated with the access control application to provide the Who You Are component of access control. This identification of a person by a camera, as well as the credential that the person holds or knows, can assist in assuring that the correct people are in the proper area. The identification of an individual through the cameras analytics can be used as the credential to allow a person entrance to a building or area.

Video Surveillance Integration

Utilising the Enterprise Integriti platform, system operators are able to visually verify alarm events in real-time, using video feeds from an interconnected Video Surveillance platform. Security Personnel are able to view, control and customize Video layouts all within one centrally managed system, while monitoring other access control or alarm events within the same graphical interface.

Contactor Management Integration

Making sure that the correct company is on your property and performing the necessary responsibilities proves daunting with the amount of work expectations that exist. Being able to verify that not only did the correct person arrive on property, but also that they spent the time that was charged, becomes a logistical challenge. Inner Range can provide reports identifying when the contractor came to and left your facility as well as any areas they accessed. This allows the verification of invoices as well as job completion.

RTLS Integration

Real-Time Location Systems are commonly deployed in high security situations, and allow Security Operators to maintain accurate status and location of Security Personnel in real-time. The RTLS integration with Enterprise Platform Integriti, allows for status updates and location monitoring via the same graphical interface as every other aspect of the aspect of the system (including integrated Video Surveillance, Intercoms, etc.). While increasing security and safety of staff, this integration improves situational awareness of Security Personnel in high security situations.

Mobile Apps with Push Notification

Providing information immediately has become the expectation of society and in critical situations on location it is expected that staff, patients, contractors and visitors be notified about critical situations instantly. Mass notification of the events on site can save lives and assist responders with management of the situation, whether it be critical, urgent or just informational. Notifications to be sent to specific groups of people based upon the type of event at the facility.
