AndroPedia Tech Library
As part of our service, it is important to keep our client-partners well informed on Access Control system developments, news, and best practices. Here is just a sampling of typical items from our AndroPediaSM library archive:
Last month we dove into three functions integrated security can offer your business: Enhanced Environment Regulations, Productivity Boosters and Visitor Management. (check out part 1 in case you missed it)
In this second part of our two part series on Integrated Security we will dive into a couple more features and introduce you to the Honeywell Pro-Watch Ecosystem.
Integrated Security – It Does A Whole Lot More Than You Thought Part 2
Employee Training & Certification Management – I know what you are thinking. How can a security system help me manage my employee certifications and training? Well, with applications and the right security suite, you are able to manage this information easily. On top of that, you can connect these pieces of information to key fobs and employee access protocols. For example, imagine your facility requires certain certifications and ongoing training for compliance reasons. You can monitor employee information. Fobs will automatically shut off access to controlled areas of your building if an employee does not have the proper documentation on file. This is only one piece of Compliance Report Management available to you with a professional integrated security suite. Never spend time worrying about compliance for NERC, Title 21 HIPAA, TSA etc. again.
Mass Notification – with integrated communications management you have the ability to automate notifications to assigned groups. The most common use for this is to send out information. Most notably to customers, employees and community members about closings, weather alerts and/or other urgent information. Get your message to the masses with a few clicks of a button!
Now, with all of these features in mind, it is important to point out that not EVERY integrated security suite provides these features. One of the most important things you need to be aware of when considering your solution is whether it is open or closed platform.
An open platform solution integrates easily with third-party systems. This means you can customize your solution to the needs unique to your business. As new technologies emerge and new software comest to market, an open platform system will grow with you. These same flexibilities are not easily attained with a close system product.
Ultimately, this is why Andromeda Technology Solutions partners with Honeywell to provide our customers a range of professional integrated security options via the Pro-Watch Ecosystem.

If you are looking to add a security camera system to your technology mix, here is a simple and overriding factor that you shouldn’t ignore. Like many things in life, you get what you pay for and CCTV cameras are no exception.
There is a vast difference in a $59 security camera purchased from Costco or Amazon, and a professional grade, $300 camera. The differences show up in picture quality, reliability, and longevity.
How To Tell If A Security Camera System is Right Choice?
Imagine the unimaginable. A break-in occurs at our business. You did everything you could to prevent this (i.e. a functional burglar system, cameras and even access control at specific entrances). Now, you go to look at footage the security camera caught so you can catch the culprit and the image shows a grainy blob. Now, imagine poor quality mixed with weather or poor lighting . . . you get the picture (or lack thereof).
Fast forward a few months after you install your system. Two employees get into a fender bender in the parking lot. When the police/employees request footage of the incident you don’t sweat it. You head directly to your DVR and prepare to play back footage . . . but wait . . . looks like your system is malfunctioning and a quarter of your cameras within your security camera system haven’t been recording like you thought they were. Bummer!
When spending money on technology, it is important to see it as an investment. Sure, things come and go but investing in a quality system from a reputable vendor ensures that your system will last. Systems installed by professionals typically last years with proper maintenance and system care. That system on sale at Costco is lucky to last you a few months over warranty without some sort of failure.
The one constant with cameras – they need to work. They need to capture what you need; whether that be a parking lot, office space, warehouse or any other number of critical areas in your facility.
If you cut corners here, you’ll get cut corner results.
We’d suggest instead, invest that money into a quality system that will perform when you need it and for years to come.

Google has kept no secret of their plan to eventually put an end to their social media experiment, Google+.� In case you haven't been keeping abreast of the company's announcements where the service is concerned, be aware that it will be shutting down on April 2nd of 2019.
The closer we've gotten to that deadline, the more details we've gotten from the company about how the shutdown will go.
Just so you're aware, this won't be a simple matter of turning off access and freezing posts as they are, or essentially preserving them for all time.� No, this is going to be an internet-wide absolute deletion of any and everything related to Google Plus.
That means your posts, your comments to other people's posts and your Google+ powered comments on Blogger and other blogging sites will all ultimately be deleted.� If you want to preserve any of your materials, it's long past time to start archiving.� You've still got time of course, but the clock is ticking more loudly than ever now, and depending on how much content you've got, you'll want to be quick about it.
Google+ never enjoyed the kind of popular success that Facebook and the other heavy hitters in the social media ecosystem enjoyed.� It was more of a panicked reaction to the meteoric rise of Facebook, with the fear being that Facebook might kill search if everybody simply gravitated to asking their friends for recommendations.
Obviously nothing like that happened, but it was of genuine concern when the company launched the service, and it's what prompted them to inject Google+ into every aspect of their product ecosystem, even in cases where it didn't make much sense to do so.
Given this deep integration, shutting down Google+ and deleting all traces of it won't be a quick or easy process, but it's coming, and that starts on April 2nd.� Note:� The shutdown applies to consumers only.� Enterprise users will still have access to Google+ functionality via the G Suite.
