When considering a new security system for your business there are a wide choice of standalone products and services available to you. Considering an integrated system at this time allows you to select products that will integrate together via their manufactures or a third party solution. The term Integrated System is often used to mean a wide variety of solutions – from hard wired interconnectivity, IP network links between security and life safety systems to a fully integrated package where a manufacturer has developed software links to their own and/or third party applications.

Security systems are changing at an ever-increasing pace and are now using as standard Information Technology(IT) products to communicate over Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN) on a daily basis. This has lead to more integration as standard between various security products – access control, video, intruder etc.
Physical Security Information Management
Physical Security Information Management, (PSIM), is the next step in integration from the ‘entry level’ SMS (Security Management System) linking of standard security platforms using maybe the access control or video software.
Most PSIM solutions are from 3rd party suppliers, not within the general security product market which allows them to work in a truly unbiased manner with all solution providers. In general they are from the IT market and bring together their knowledge of this sector adding another layer to the physical security world.
