Security System Design Considerations

Security system design can be a complicated equation with many variables. While specific strategies for security system design are beyond the scope of this paper, any design will likely consider these issues:

  • Cost of equipment — Budget constraints ordinarily limit the extensive use of high-confidence identification equipment. The usual approach is to deploy a range of techniques appropriate to various security levels.

  • Combining of technologies — The reliability of identification at any level can be increased by combining lower-cost technologies, with the innermost level enjoying the combined protection of all the outer concentric perimeters that contain it.

  • User acceptance — (The “nuisance” factor.) Ease of use and reliability of identification are important in preventing the system from becoming a source of frustration and a temptation for subversion.

  • Scalability — Can the design be implemented incrementally as necessity, funding, and confidence in the technology increase?

  • Backwards compatibility — Is the new design compatible with elements of an older system already in place? Keeping all or part of an existing system can significantly reduce deployment cost.
