Access control - What is it, types and security applications

More and more companies and individuals are betting on access control solutions that allow them to effectively control and protect their factories, offices, premises or homes. In this sense, being able to offer access control devices is an added value that complements the most advanced intrusion and video surveillance systems on the market. If you still do not have access control systems in your portfolio, we invite you to discover more about them from By Demes, the leading distributor of security technologies in Spain. We will explain everything you need to know about access control: what it is, the types that exist and the security applications that you can use in your professional projects. You will find the best and most advanced solutions from the leading brands in the market in the By Demes Access Control Catalogue. What is an access control system and why can it be vital? The concept of access control, in the general field of security, refers to automation systems that allow or deny the entry of people or vehicles into homes, companies or institutions, according to previously configured indicators. We distinguish proximity systems, for which an object is required to authenticate and authorize entry (a card, for example), from biometric devices that authenticate the person by recognizing their physical characteristics (face, fingerprint or palm of the hand, for example), without the need to carry an additional object. They can be implemented at the doors of buildings, homes, premises, car parks and at all types of entrances. These types of solutions can be essential for the management of worker access in workplaces, vehicles in shared parking lots and even the possibility of allowing workers to enter a home when the owner is not present. All this makes it possible to promptly prevent and identify a possible intrusion. At the level of connectivity, there are autonomous access control systems and others based on servers. Below, we will see these in detail. Autonomous access control installations Autonomous access control devices, as their name suggests, allow you to authorize or prevent access to people without any connection and independently. In general, they are small, easy to install and use. At the operating level, they need a previous configuration to indicate the desired parameters and thus manage the inputs and outputs autonomously, which provides great reliability and utility. We highlight the U-Prox access control systems, which are generally applied to doors and car parks. It is easy to install, with little need for management and for a single door. We recommend using the U-Prox access control system for: Community accesses Neighbour communities Offices Homeowners community access Warehouse entrances Vehicle access Autonomous access control devices for businesses Here is a small representative selection of products that you can use to protect small premises and businesses: UPROX-044 Versatile reader The U-Prox multi-credential reader works effectively with cards, Mifare, Mifare Plus and mobile credentials. The installation is especially comfortable and simple and it is easily adjustable from the user's own SmartPhone. UPROX-045 Autonomous controller It allows smartphones to be used as credentials with the U-Prox Mobile ID app and U-Prox ID mobile tokens. It incorporates a touch-sensitive exit button and allows the connection of an external reader of the U-Prox SL series. Autonomous access control devices for vehicles To protect and control vehicle entrances to private car parks, we recommend: UPROX-046 Contactless identifier tag It allows the authorization of users of the access control system in hands-free mode. U-Prox tag is for transmitting mobile ID included, available on-board activation button and only works with U-Prox SL (SmartLine) readers. Autonomous access control devices for homes SALTO-001 Danalock smart electronic lock It can be linked with the VESTA Alarm System through the Z-Wave protocol for installation in a home, residential or vacation rental residence. This smart lock can be managed from a smartphone. Its installation does not require screws or drilling and is placed on the inside of the lock. In addition, it keeps a summary of activities and monitors when and who enters or leaves the home. If you want to learn more about these security devices, check out our article detailing how smart electronic locks work. Small and medium sized access control installations At the level of small and medium-sized access control systems, between 3 and 4 doors, By Demes offers the widest range of solutions, adapted to all types of professional installations. ZKTeco's Atlas system, one of the most efficient and used ranges on the market, allows managing a maximum of 21 controllers and 84 doors, with advanced access control functions. The devices offer the advantage that the management software is directly embedded within the controller, thus facilitating the management of multiple access control devices connected in various zones. It is designed to be used in small and medium-sized companies with a considerable number of doors, which do not require computer maintenance, and which in turn offer a more advanced event log. ZKTeco Atlas System Small and Medium Size Access Control Device In this case, there is the possibility of combining the following biometric reader with proximity readers: ZKTeco ZK-160 fingerprint and card reader The device allows the use of fingerprint or card and is compatible with Atlas controllers, but also with standalone devices. It has an LED and an acoustic indicator. It is ideal for installation on walls and thanks to its manufacture using stainless steel it has a long lifetime. Server-based access control installations The third and last type of access control that we will talk about is the one based on the server, that is, it is controlled by means of management software that offers different functionalities. These types of installations allow managing multiple zones and access points with different technologies. They combine LPR, biometrics, proximity, visitor management... and are very useful for critical infrastructures and complex compounds such as large logistics centres that require advanced access control. In addition, they are adapted to the management of car parks with a high volume of spaces, large offices and business complexes, including access control functions by schedules and permits. This type of access control also allows the possibility of integrating several devices into the security ecosystem and combining different brands and ranges, such as ZKTeco's ZKBioSecurity or Hikvision's HikCentral.

Surveillance cameras for private homes: where and how to install them?

To maintain maximum security in your professional facilities is paramount given the high risk of squatting and theft in Europe. In this sense, the installation of surveillance cameras is an essential element of prevention. Having a complete and efficient CCTV system can minimize the consequences of an intrusion. By Demes stands out for its national leadership in the distribution of CCTV systems, allowing us to adapt the sale of surveillance cameras to the most precise needs of each project. Thanks to the excellent synergy with the leading brands in the sector, we offer the most complete and advanced solutions for all kinds of demands. Discover our extensive catalogue of CCTV products. In order to minimize risks in homes, it is highly recommended to install both indoor surveillance cameras and outdoor surveillance cameras. Due to the different nature of video surveillance areas, there are many devices adapted to each environment, thanks to high-performance technical characteristics. If you are in the process of choosing surveillance cameras for your home and are wondering where and how to install them, in this complete guide from By Demes you will find essential details, such as the different types of surveillance cameras, along with a selection of our best products, as well as tips on installing and using home surveillance camera systems. The different types of home surveillance cameras There are many options when choosing the best home surveillance system, depending on the type of home, the needs of the people, or the place where the surveillance camera kit is installed. In addition, the cameras are part of a system also made up of other devices (recorders, storage systems, video analysis, control centres...), and that not all cameras work independently. There are different characteristics that can help us identify the surveillance cameras on the market. For example, when talking about connection we can differentiate between wireless surveillance cameras or wired cameras. We can also group them by their shape, whether they are bullet or dome type, and even by size, as when we refer to mini hidden surveillance cameras. Thus, we find many types of surveillance cameras and each of them can offer different advantages: installation, image quality, storage, and even autonomy. In general, we highlight three main types: IP surveillance cameras Analog security cameras Thermal surveillance cameras IP cameras work thanks to the internet and allow you to control and view video images through connectivity between the IP camera and a connected mobile or computer. For recording and viewing images, they can be equipped with an SD memory and record directly, or require the support of an NVR recorder. They are cheaper than traditional CCTV systems, offer more options and are wireless, but there is a higher risk of sabotage through the internet connection. On the other hand, we have the category of analogue cameras that are part of the traditional CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) system. They are directly connected by a cable to the recorder which transmits the recorded images that can be consulted in real time, which guarantees better image reliability. For this reason, they represent a good surveillance camera solution for sites without internet, although there is a risk of physical sabotage if the cables are not installed correctly and are too visible. Finally, the last type that we will mention are thermal cameras, which, as their name indicates, base their surveillance on temperature detection, using the temperatures of human bodies in case of intrusion. Within the 3 main categories proposed by By Demes, we find different models: bullet, dome, mini-dome, hidden, box and for vehicles. To help you to choose, we recommend you visit our selection of surveillance cameras with the best and most successful performance, adapted to houses and for outdoor and indoor use. Indoor surveillance cameras The installation of surveillance cameras indoors must respect some strategic aspects to optimize the overall performance of the CCTV system. To protect your professional facilities, it is essential to be able to receive notifications in the event of any real alarm or intrusion into the home, in the same way as being able to consult the images in real time thanks to wireless IP-type surveillance cameras with an Internet connection. In fact, not only the risk of intrusion is considered, but also the surveillance of people, which is why surveillance cameras are also installed for the elderly or to monitor the behaviour of children. When choosing the type of system, the size of the home and the experience of the person will have to be considered. For normal-sized houses and flats, IP-type battery-free indoor surveillance cameras are the most recommended, due to their comfort and ease of use and installation. However, for larger spaces, you can opt for non-wifi surveillance cameras, which require more precise installation organization due to wired connectivity. To maximize the degree of security, the installation of security cameras must be carried out in the main access roads, for which a study plan of the house will have to be carried out to position the cameras in the most appropriate points. In order to detect an intrusion as quickly as possible, you will have to prioritize: doors, windows, balconies and, to obtain the best field of vision of the interior video surveillance areas, it is recommended to place the cameras at angles. In addition, the corridors are also strategic ways of recognition of intruders. Then it is necessary to opt for indoor surveillance cameras with recording, which provide facial recognition and night vision, in order to distinguish an intruder from a family member. Finally, whether you have hidden cameras, wired analogue cameras, or Wifi IP cameras, large storage is essential. Choosing a system that guarantees the access and safe storage of images protects your privacy and represents a source of evidence in case of intrusion and police investigation. The best indoor surveillance cameras for homes  1. WiFi IP compact camera DAHUA-2650-FO The DAHUA Wi-fi IP compact indoor camera offers 10m infrared lighting for indoor use, h.265/H.264/MJPEG format, 1080P resolution at 25ips, MicroSD slot, 12V DC. 2.

Outdoor surveillance cameras CCTV systems for homes also include the installation of outdoor security cameras, which allows complete control and surveillance of your home, staying one step ahead of people with intrusion intentions. The installation conditions of home and outdoor surveillance cameras are very different from the indoor ones. First of all, when installing an outdoor video surveillance system, we must try to film only in the areas that belong to us, without harming the neighbours or the community areas, which may seem logical, but if ignored, it could expose the person to important legal sanctions in case of not applying the data protection law. For this reason, the community must be notified and a video surveillance sign must be installed in front of their property to warn of the presence of external surveillance cameras. On a technical level, it is necessary to install cameras with fixed lenses (not robotic) to record only images of our private space. Regarding the installation itself, whether we are talking about wireless IP surveillance cameras or wired CCTV surveillance cameras, they will have to be protected against weather conditions. The choice of a safe place protected from the rain is important, also if it is recommended to choose waterproof cameras, at the resistance level, the cameras must have at least IP66 or IP67 certifications to, among other things, guarantee that they withstand the extreme temperatures. At the same time, the cameras should not be directly visible to people, although there is a warning through the alarm sign, it is preferable that they cannot anticipate their movements. In these cases, you can choose hidden surveillance cameras, as it is important to install the wireless or wired outdoor surveillance cameras in places that do not directly attract the attention of potential intruders. For more specific advice on camera installation, see our article in which we talk about the installation of surveillance cameras according to the police authorities of Catalonia. The best outdoor surveillance cameras for homes 1. Wifi IP bullet camera DAHUA-2617-FO The DAHUA Wifi IP bullet camera has 30m smart IR for outdoor use, 2.8mm fixed lens (106°), 1080P resolution at 25ips, 12V DC, H.265/H.264/MJPEG format, MicroSD slot, ICR Filter. 2.

How to install security cameras according to the police?

Being able to offer our customers the possibility of watching over their home or professional establishment requires a high quality surveillance camera system (CCTV) that guarantees complete control and efficient support for an anti-intrusion system. At By Demes, we offer our customers the largest catalogue of products for their professional projects, adapting to the specific needs of each problem, and getting ahead with the most innovative devices on the market from leading brands. All this thanks to our wide variety of high-end surveillance solutions, which can be consulted in our CCTV product catalogue. Nowadays most professional businesses are equipped with security cameras, however, they are not always installed correctly. According to the Corporació Catalana de Mitjans Audiovisuals, 70% of CCTV cameras are poorly placed and lack quality, which is detrimental to police investigations. To achieve effective surveillance, the installation of cameras must follow certain steps, boosting the performance of the systems and thus reducing the risks of intrusion. So how to install security cameras correctly and efficiently? On this occasion we are going to share some tips, following the recommendations of the Mossos d'Escuadra (autonomous police of Spain). The importance of installing security cameras Indoor or outdoor security cameras, visible and accompanied by warning signs, are the main deterrents for various malicious intents. Being able to be aware of possible suspicious activities, and being alerted when they occur, provides the end customer with peace of mind and security. With the development of new technologies in security surveillance cameras, CCTV systems can even be connected to mobile devices, in order to reinforce the proximity to the site and the speed of warning in the event of an intrusion. Even if your customers' home or business is perceived as "secure" and "risk-free", you can never foresee a potential incident. In addition to detecting intrusions, home and business surveillance cameras allow you to monitor the activities of people visiting your indoor and outdoor spaces, leaving a video record of any events that need to be reviewed. What is the process of installing security cameras like? These benefits and advantages can be achieved only if one parameter is taken seriously: the correct installation of video surveillance devices. First of all, it is necessary to carry out a preliminary study of the site in order to identify the most vulnerable areas and the main access routes, such as: common areas, staircases, entrances and exits, windows and other exterior routes, exterior porches... Once the installation areas have been selected, the layout of the CCTV cameras must be taken into account. For maximum security and optimum visibility, the security cameras should be positioned in corners, and at ceiling height, with a sufficient inclination to show the entire space. Indoors as well as outdoors, it is always best to opt for small, discreet security cameras that blend in with their surroundings. It is also advisable to ensure that nothing interferes with the camera's field of view, and to install them so that they cannot be tampered with. Depending on the type of security camera chosen, installation and connectivity methods vary. It will therefore be necessary to have power sources nearby in the case of wired connectivity and an application-based configuration in the case of wireless surveillance camera systems. The police essential tips for optimal video surveillance CCTV video surveillance cameras are indispensable tools for police investigations. When an intrusion, theft or any type of crime occurs, the images and videos are essential evidence that can allow the identification of the criminals. Any detail of the events of people is relevant. Precisely for this reason, good image quality and resolution are required, as well as a well-designed installation. According to the authorities, security cameras must have a certain image quality. For proper recognition, a resolution of 500 pixels/metre or more, or 80 pixels/face, such as a motorised varifocal optical camera, is recommended. In addition to the quality, the illumination level of the areas must be sufficient for optimal visibility. For this reason, it is advisable to install additional light sources to the video surveillance cameras for the darkest areas and even to equip them with infrared cameras. In terms of installation, CCTV cameras should be installed in such a way as to obtain the largest field of vision, prioritising the most frequented passage areas and orientation towards people. In terms of accessibility to the images, it is always safer to store them in an environment with access control (password) limited to personnel. Finally, the use of uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS) should be considered in the event of a power failure. 5 IP security cameras recommended by By Demes From our product catalogue, we have selected the 5 best video surveillance cameras that are perfectly adapted to the advice given above. 1.

The relay is an electromagnetic device that allows the regulation and direction of the main current of a circuit. It works in a similar way to a switch and makes it possible to open or close other independent electrical circuits. What is a control relay used for? We can use a control relay for local or remote management of an electrical device. An example of this is home automation, which is currently triggering the use of the smart switch or relay, allowing effective control inside and outside the home all kinds of smart devices, such as switches, lighting, sensors, air conditioning, etc ... Any installation can benefit from the use of a control relay, such as homes and offices, although we can also implement it effectively in the industrial field or in transport, such as motorhomes and boats. The use of the smart relay for greater efficiency and energy savings One of the most notable advantages of using the switch is the possibility of creating advanced rules, such as automatic watering, the switching on of lights by movement or the time control of the air conditioning, which translates into a reduction in variable and fixed costs of electricity. Another interesting aspect is the possibility of measuring power and exporting a history log of daily, weekly and monthly consumption. This allows us to identify the devices or time slots with the highest consumption, being able to create advanced rules for greater efficiency and energy savings.

Types of Fire Protection Systems
Types of Fire Protection Systems

Fire protection systems, also known by their abbreviation as "PCI", are a set of equipment that is integrated with the structure of a building and whose main mission is to help prevent, detect and stop a possible fire. Currently, these systems must comply with a series of measures specified by the government. When we talk about types of Fire Protection systems, we refer to two main measures, although there are other classifications to consider that we will mention below. Types of fire fighting systems As we have advanced, there are two main fire protection measures: - Passive fire protection measures The objective of passive protection measures is to minimize the effect of the fire once it has occurred, limiting the spread of smoke and flames, to allow an evacuation of the building. We are talking about covering structures, air duct gates, fire doors, signs, compartmentalisation of fire sectors ... - Active fire protection measures For its part, the objective of active protection measures is to ensure that the fire is extinguished as quickly and effectively as possible in the building. Among the active measures we find fire detection measures, generally based on the detection of smoke or temperature increase and fire extinguishing measures, whether manual (fire extinguishers, equipped fire hydrants (BIE), dry column and hydrants) or automatic water, gas or dust (water curtains, foams, carbon dioxide, normal dust, multipurpose dust ...) Fire protection installations The equipment and systems that are part of fire protection installations must meet a series of conditions set by the government. The law details the regulations and requirements for design, installation, maintenance and minimum human resources that installation and maintenance companies of fire protection installations should have. Hence the importance of always betting on approved fire protection companies.
