secCloud Managed Security System – Access Control Software

We understand a major security requirement for Local Councils is to control access to restricted areas, while also providing ease of access to public areas, and safe storage of equipment. 

We provide CCTV and Access Control systems for many Local Councils and our preventative maintenance service ensures security hardware operates correctly when needed.

Access control that integrates with venue booking systems – secCloud Managed Security System is used by councils to grant access to community spaces for hire periods. Our software sends your client an access code that will let them into a venue for a booked hire period. 

Increase revenue – regular hirers can use this access code for the times booked and paid for. Councils find they can maximise the hire period by having better control over when people can use the facilities, which is great for their yield management.

How we do it

We conduct a security risk assessment of the site and design an access control system with locking mechanisms and vandal resistant keypads to control who may access the space. A proposal is presented for the supply and installation of the system.

The access control system is installed by licenced technicians. An industrial 4G modem is used to connect the onsite hardware to the secCloud server. The site is programmed so that each hireable space can be allocated to a booking. Where the hirer has access to the main hall, they also have access to the front door to enter the community centre for example.

The council booking staff are trained in how to use the secCloud platform from a web browser and smartphone app. secCloud is a managed service where our staff are on hand 24 hours  a day for support.

secCloud integrates booking systems where the booking is sent to secCloud, automating the process.

From our security operations centre we can assist hirers who are having trouble entering a facility. Our staff can verify the booking details and remotely grant them access where required.

Software Integration with Bookable – We have worked with the team at Attekus to integrate secCloud with Bookable, a local government booking software. This integration takes venue booking to the next level, as a hirer is sent an access code when they book a council venue. They will be granted access to the hired venue for the hire period.

Keyless entry to venues – Simplify the booking process for the hiring of community halls and meeting rooms. Forget about handing out keys to inspect a venue and for hire periods. We help make your venues keyless, giving hirers a unique code for their booking time only.

secWatch Interactive Video Monitoring

At secVision Networks we run a 24/7 Security Operations Centre (SOC) where our Virtual Guards can manage your alarm system. Instead of paying a guard to sit in a depot overnight, we can monitor your depot 24/7 from our SOC. If authorised people need to access the property after hours, they can be identified and access can be granted remotely. 

Virtual patrols save you money

By combining secWatch CCTV with secCloud Access Control you can get visual verification if your site is vacant and then arm your alarm remotely.  Scheduled virtual patrols using a CCTV system allows our guards to alert authorities if there is any trouble onsite. Clients who use this service find they save 30-50% on patrol costs.   Images can be emailed to you based on movement onsite during scheduled hours.

Decrease loitering and vandalism

If you have problems with gangs, rubbish dumping or graffiti, we can install CCTV and start recording within hours. Our access control system combines with an alarm and CCTV system to give a venue layers of security. We can quickly deploy high definition solar powered cameras for mounting on any pole.  Send vandals and loiterers a message and ensure your venues are locked and secure. 

a Smart City Saves on energy

With secCloud Access Control you can control the lights and airconditioning in an area based on occupancy. When the alarm is turned off, the lights can come on. At night if there is no movement in the area, then the lights can turn off. 

Local Councils using secCloud Managed Security System include Burwood, Camden, City of Ryde,
Ku-ring-gai Council, The Hills Shire Council, Hornsby Shire, Northern Beaches, and Shoalhaven.

cCTV Trailer hire for public events

At public events it is difficult to have people and eyes everywhere. We can help you with our CCTV trailer, which is available for temporary hire. Using the latest in high definition CCTV technology, we can set you up to monitor your event or we can monitor it from our Security Operations Centre. Working with your team on the ground and local authorities, we can help to make your event secure and hassle free.

routine maintenance guarantees performance

Unless someone cares for your systems then they may not work when you need them. Using technology we can get devices to report back to our SOC with a regular health status. If a camera goes offline or a recording hard drive has a fault, we know about it in real time. We then log in and try to rectify the problem. If an onsite visit is required then a technician is despatched to fix the problem.
