0 Reviews
This book was written specifically to provide the facility manager with virtually all information needed to build and manage an effective security system for any type of facility. Topics include facility layout, distances and separation, fencing, access control, intrusion detection systems, pass key and key control systems, locks, hasps, gates, etc. Also explored are more sophisticated systems such as closed circuit TV, microwave transmitters, lasers, lighting, clear zone, computer access control, thumbprint and retinal scan access control, voice print analysis, and hand geometry. In addition, non-hardware aspects of security are examined, including security clearances and background checks, guards, rounds, shift work, training, and procedure development.
