Digital remote access 24x7
A digital security system that interconnects various components across all locations in the country - that was the vision of Erste Bank Serbia.
Now, this idea has become a reality. "At the security center in Novi Sad, all information from the systems for video surveillance, access control, fire protection, etc. is now collected. From there, all security systems are monitored and remotely controlled together," says Zoran Vrbašky, Business Development Manager at Schrack Seconet Serbia. The fact that fire alarm systems are also integrated into this intelligent concept is anything but a matter of course. Traditional solutions were unable to meet the complex requirements for digital networking of systems across distributed locations throughout Serbia - but Integral WAN did. Schrack Seconet has developed this completely new networking concept precisely for such applications.
First Mover with Integral WAN
"We had many false alarms before, and we often couldn't react appropriately. Remote access was also not possible. This led us to replace all analog fire protection systems and achieve a new security standard," says Drago Žunić, Head of Physical Security Unit. Thus, Erste Bank became a first mover in two ways: no other company in Serbia had such an advanced network at that time, and internationally, Erste Bank was the first company to choose the new premium solution Integral WAN.
Smart command center for security technology
All branches of Erste Bank in Serbia are now gradually being added to the Integral WAN network. The connection between the individual branches is made via secure online connections provided by the bank. The central control center in the headquarters in Novi Sad is now the digital heart for all security systems. A redundant control center in the second headquarters provides additional security.
Secolog IP is used for monitoring the fire protection systems. The data from the branches is transmitted to this hazard management system via Integral Message. For each alarm, detailed information is automatically provided. It is not only visible which detector triggered the alarm, but also the specific location. Many controls can also be performed remotely via the central command system, such as day-night switches or deactivation of sirens, etc. All processes are logged, providing more transparency.
For the protection of people and values.
