Which kinds of Security System and Equipment have installed in Hotel?
The hospitality industry is always under the threat of criminal activities due to its lucrative nature. Thus, offering safety, comfort, and satisfied inhabitant experiences is the most important thing in the hospitality industry. This industry has to abide by various health and safety regulations. There are many factors that distinguishes an excellent hotel from an average one.
When guests pick a hotel to stay in, they rarely consider the security of the hotel. However, high-end hotels consider the safety of their guests as a top concern. Typically, a hotel builds its reputation on the safety and comfort of its guests.
1. Walk Through Metal Detectors:
Walk Through Metal Detector (WTMD) adopts international advanced metal detection technology, specially designed for detection of metal and alloy objects hidden in human body.
Nowadays, many high-end hotels have Walk Through Metal Detectors installed in their facilities. By equipped with the Walk-Through Metal Detectors, the potential threats of knives or other weapons are filtered out before they entering the hotel. This greatly reduce the risk of being attacked by the weapons.
2. X-ray Baggage Scanner:
More and more hotel chains have set up baggage X-ray security inspection machines in the hotel lobby to carry out security inspections for the personal belongings of the passengers. Some people may question: "The hotel is not a large public place, unnecessary to install such physic security screening equipment."
In this regard, the person in charge of the hotel does not agree with this. In the past, some hotels seized a number of drug-related personnel during the police inventory operation and seized a number of drug-using tools and drugs. Since the hotel is not a public security agency and does not have the power to check the personal belongings of the luggage, there is no knowledge of the items carried by the passengers. Even in the face of some suspicious guests or items, they can only be handled it by calling police, in a very passive position.
However, since the installation of the hotel security inspection machine, the security risks of passenger luggage will no longer be a problem. Hotel personnel no longer need to rely on the naked eye to check suspected contraband, can minimize the safety risks brought by luggage, and ensure the safety of guests and hotels.
3. Bomb blast suppression device:
Ballistic blankets or blast protection container is a kind of equipment used for temporary storage and can transfer the suspected explosives. It can weaken the exploding power and blast of bomb to protect people and property surrounding.
The staff of the hotel should be trained to correctly use the blast protection device in normal times. Therefore, if a bomb threat is received, the hotel can quickly manage the issue to avoid the panic. Besides, the hotel should work closely with the police to keep updated.
4. Video Surveillance Systems-CCTV:
Today, almost every hotel has video monitoring devices installed in their premises. Still, there are some small units such as nature resorts or lodges that take no count of installing video surveillance systems. Actually, it is a bad idea that don’t install video monitoring systems just to save money. For instance, if some precious item of any of your guests goes missing, it will be really hard for the investigators to find the suspect. This will certainly lower the reputation of the hotel.
5. Sprinkler Systems and Carbon Monoxide Detectors:
Sprinkler Systems and Carbon Monoxide Detectors are generally mounted just below the ceiling height with a temperature detector or smoke detector, attached with each sprinkler. The temperature from the fire melts the fusible link on the detector, which opens a water valve. The water is then sprayed on the ceiling and falls on the floor, extinguishing the fire. If the fire area should spread, more sprinklers are automatically opened, thus confining the fire to a small area. The temperature detector can be purchased for different activating temperature.
Different security equipment installed in the room makes the guests feel safe and comfortable even when they are travelling away from their own safe dwellings.
