Protect against theft
As well as complying with fire safety regulations, which vary according to the building’s activity and capacity, a theft protection system must be installed in public-access establishments such as museums, exhibition halls, supermarkets, etc. containing valuable goods.
Checking emergency exits
To prevent theft, emergency exits must be checked. The installation of a UGCIS (Centralised Emergency Exit Management Unit) system enables doors to be controlled, with remote management of locking and unlocking of exits, an opening time delay of up to 3 minutes, and an access to be switched to security mode (under the responsibility of the head of the establishment). This system also manages a history of openings to guarantee traceability.
In the case of supermarkets, all safety and security installations are managed centrally, from the Central Security Station (PCS). With Alligator’s UGCIS (Centralised Emergency Exit Management Unit) system, security personnel can view the status of all equipped doors in real time. With emergency exits protected, security guards can devote their time to monitoring the sales area.
Like all ERP (Établissement Recevant du Public) stores, superstores must be equipped with emergency exits to evacuate customers and staff in the event of fire. However, these exits must not be used by shoplifters. The challenge is to strike the right balance between personal safety and property protection.
Interface with video surveillance
ERP systems feature manual opening requests. Interfacing Alligator’s UGCIS (Centralised Emergency Exit Management Unit) system with video surveillance ensures that manual opening requests are well-founded, and limits untimely actions. Once this has been verified, the security manager can remotely unlock the doors.
