Using a Warehouse Security System

Different warehouse security systems require various security features to maximize the protection of staff and goods within your business. There are multiple types of industrial security systems that you can use, each with its own component parts, including:

  • Security cameras
  • Access control for restricting access
  • Customized inventory systems
  • Scanning of employees as they enter and exit the premises

Keep in mind that the best warehouse security system will not rely solely on one modality. Warehouse security best practice guidelines require engagement with multiple types of warehouse security. Furthermore, ensuring the best safety and security in warehouses means integrating these systems. 

This reality brings up a few critical points.

First, how can you integrate such a system? How can you ensure that the various types of warehouse security work together harmoniously and create a comprehensive security system? The answer is an open camera system. An open system is brand-agnostic and allows for the incorporation and management of any type of system from one central location.

An open system can only work if you can integrate workflows. Integration of workflows refers to ensuring that data can be accessed and monitored from a centralized location, as well as managing that data. Can you use one centralized workflow to monitor environmental sensors? Watch security footage? Use that integrated workflow to control who can access said footage and manage safety from any location? At Spot AI, we've worked with outside contractors to create these capabilities. In doing so, we've created a robust security system that you can use.
