Security System Design


Security risks are deliberate actions taken by people to harm or damage your organization. Security system design is the process that allows clients to control the access that people (insiders and outsiders) have to their organizations assets with a coordinated and prioritized approach to asset protection by design. Protus3 security system designers work with our clients, architects, and engineers to incorporate the security into the overall facility/campus design. Client outcomes include layers of security based on the value of the assets, flexibility, efficiencies and cost savings.

Creating a well-designed security system requires an understanding of our client’s culture, philosophy, operations assets and expected outcomes so that we can appropriately recommend and write specifications for specific devices, create drawings, develop RFP’s, evaluate solutions, and commission projects depending on the client’s needs. Protus3 will partner with you in order to create a seamless and effective security protocol that complements your established security program and protects your organization’s assets.

Protus3 provides security system design services in support of system upgrades, new installations in existing facilities, installations in buildings in design or under construction, and in conjunction with a security threat assessment.

Design Coordination

When working for an architect or engineer on new construction, Protus3 coordinates designs with related components, including door hardware, electrical, fire and life safety, landscaping, and lighting. When working directly for a client who will be the end-user of the system, Protus3 coordinates designs with IT, facilities, and other departments or divisions as needed.

Once designed, a security system does not stand alone but must be managed correctly.
Project Management

Design is only one step in the process. Once the design is complete, Protus3 can work with you to develop a bid package, select a security system integrator/installer, and manage the project through construction, commissioning, and acceptance. Protus3 provides the subject matter experts to support the customer throughout the project at whatever level is appropriate.

The ultimate goal is to produce a final system that is installed correctly and functioning as designed.

Security Integration

Security should control and protect assets, not disrupt effective and efficient operations. That is why Protus3 looks at an organization’s culture, security philosophy, and operations when determining the appropriate technology to recommend. This requires a comprehensive security program that encompasses the people, processes, and technology of the organization. In some cases, an operational solution is more effective and less expensive than a technological solution.

Technology is only one component of effective security.
