Bringing the security industry into focus

Hotel security

The security industry is highly focused on hotel safety issues and concerns due to attacks on international hotels in the recent past. The biggest challenge of the hotel industry is to provide top level security while still maintaining friendly customer service. To realise this goal, the physical security management team has to create a multifaceted plan that includes staff training and educating guests about safety and security issues.

The access control solution in the hotel should be smart enough to deter theft and any other criminal activity. The security managers need to train hotel staff over controlling room key distribution and making sure that access is granted to registered guests only.

Technology has improved greatly to help hotels upgrade basic security measures. CCTV cameras with recording are essential for direct monitoring of crowded areas such as bars, lounges and parking lots. Moreover, the entire hotel should be well lit as it reduces the opportunity for a crime.
