There are many elements that make up a security system. Access control, video surveillance and recording, sensors and alarms, and intrusion detection are just some of them.

To get over this problem it is advisable to find a one-stop-shop for your security requirements; a company such as Avigilon which offers end to end security solutions. Aside from having to deal with only one company, it is almost a given that all the parts of the security system have been designed to and will work together. This online article explains why in most cases data security depends to an extent upon physical security.
