The purpose of using technical protection systems in hospitality and tourism accommodation facilities is the protection of people that is prescribed by the law, increasing the quality of services that are offered to guests, as well as the reduction of costs and losses. Safety and comfort of guests is the key to success of very tourist facility and therefore the attention should be paid primarily to protection systems such as fire and gas alarms, smoke and heat exhausts or evacuations that are mandatory and must comply with legal regulations. The smoke alarm system is obligatory in most accommodation facilities. A stable smoke alarm is obligatory in every hospitality facility with a capacity of more than 100 people, and for all 4 or 5-star facilities. The fire alarm system is most often used as the basis for connecting other systems such as SOS, evacuation and panic lighting, smoke extraction, gas and carbon monoxide detection. Fire alarm can be connected to firefighter units, which significantly speeds up firefighting.
Video surveillance enables effective prevention of various criminal offenses, including vandalism, and monitoring on the premises that are not directly visible from all points of a building (object surrounding area, corridors and stairways), as well as the space with higher fluctuation of guests (reception, restaurant), whereby parking lots are particularly important for damage to a guest’s vehicle. It is especially useful for owners to post-view images and monitor space from anywhere in the world via the Internet.
Anti-burglary system with alarm signaling is obligatory in exchange offices that can often be located in hotels. It is also effective in preventing burglary in buildings when no one is staying in them, as is often case after the tourist season is over. Intervention is provided by connecting to the security alert center, and it is possible to merge the alarm signal to the user’s mobile phone.
Access control allows you to control access for guests, staff and vehicles. It offers guests easier access to rooms, as well as use of hotel facilities such as wellness, swimming pools or parking and payment of bills. Access control can also be used to record staff time of work, which significantly saves administrative resources and speeds up the calculation of payments for seasonal employees and paid hourly workers. It is also used to operate parking lot ramps.
Integrated protection systems enable all of the above requirements to be fulfilled, and their profitability is reflected in savings in the construction of buildings, savings in overheads, discounts on property insurance policies, investment preservation, better organization of operations, better monitoring of work, faster reaction in incidental situations, and consequently a better business reputation.
