Access at healthcare facilities presents specialized, critical security challenges.

If your needs include remote management, our cloud solutions are the best in the industry and we give you the ultimate in flexibility to manage your system and control your costs.

Video Systems and Storage
Danger and risks continue to evolve. Thankfully, so do the technologies to address
them. We can help you upgrade your old analog system to megapixel cameras,
update your storage to handle the capacity and explore emerging video analytics to help you create the system that can perform exactly as you need it to. Our video systems include CCTV, DVR and NVRs (analog & IP) components and networked IP components that use network standards and network attached storage devices for increased flexibility. Using network architecture, remote viewing is as simple as logging on.

Infant Protection
Our mother-baby match electronic security system gives you peace of mind with high-quality protection. The small, tamper-proof infant protection tag can be monitored on multiple floors and set to activate an alarm, door locks and elevator holds. It also easily integrates with other security and access systems that you may already have in place.

Systems Integration
Advanced systems integration and cutting-edge applications are our hallmarks. All of your electronic security systems can be fully integrated with our fire, life safety and physical security system solutions. We specialize in bringing new technologies into existing systems and can often help cut costs and minimize the interruption of installations.

Remote Video Monitoring
Your video program can also include Red Hawk’s 24/7 remote service and monitoring. We use the latest IP compatible devices and can even help reduce manned guard costs through our innovative solutions to video monitoring. The average remote
guarding solution can save up to 70% of the cost of a live guard and can easily be
designed to augment your current program. A key feature of our remote solutions
is the two-way audio functionality that allows for a trained intervention specialist to interact in real-time with the event.

Personnel and Asset Location
Locating assets doesn’t just help improve productivity, it also improves your bottom line. Our team can help create a personnel and asset location system to track exactly what you need, how you need it. We’ll also fully integrate the solution with existing access control or other systems, in complete compliance with code.

Our solutions can satisfy the needs of very small clinics, and scale to systems that meet the needs of high-rise and multi-campus hospitals. We can design, install and service everything from a four-zone panel to a large, networked system for fire, carbon monoxide, smoke and heat detection, as well as high-sensitivity and special hazard detection.
