This article reports on Chubb Electronic Security's Monitor AFx, an Integrated Security Management technology designed to integrate and manage each element of a site's entire electronic security installation, and deliver new levels of control accordingly. The concept of Integrated Security Management is quite simple: combining the data from two or more previously independent devices, such as CCTV cameras and access control readers, onto one software application, with one database, using an existing information technology network as host. Unlike traditional electronic security products, this software programme adds intelligence to, and simplifies the management of the information received from the control panel. Monitor AFx combines the data from every device, sorts and interprets it, and effectively re-presents it to the user in a way that allows much greater efficiency. As each device is connected to the information technology infrastructure using common protocols, not only can the security manager remotely monitor the data that device is collecting, but can also perform a variety of administrative and maintenance functions without the need to be physically present at each location.
