integrated security solutions
for healthcare facilities
Hospitals and medical facilities have a special set of physical security challenges above and beyond the typical requirements for businesses and public facilities. In addition to the usual needs for video surveillance, access control, badging systems, and visitor management, hospitals have to manage:
- Continuous, 24/7 operations open to high volume traffic that does not provide easy downtime for system maintenance, upgrades, or troubleshooting
- Extremely sensitive and expensive equipment to protect
- Clean and sterile areas with high risks for contamination and infectious materials
- A vulnerable patient population that cannot protect themselves, and may not even be able to call for help, including infants, the elderly and the incapacitated
- Valuable and controlled substances and medications, including radioactive materials and opioids
- High risk patient population in treatment and recovery areas

Valuber Security can help – with the security solutions hospitals need
Valuber Security designs and installs innovative security systems, fully integrated to maximize their utility and effectiveness. Valuber Security does not deliver “cookie cutter” solutions – instead, every new installation begins with a comprehensive threat assessment and an evaluation of the current security programs and system requirements. In this way, Valuber Security can proceed with system design and engineering, followed by installation, implementation, and training, to implement the best possible security solution for immediate needs while being ready to adapt and evolve with emerging security needs in the future.
To meet the needs of medical facilities, Valuber Security delivers complete integrated security solutions made up of traditional and medical-facility specific solutions, such as:
Valuber Security can design a new system or enhance existing hospital surveillance to provide virtually comprehensive video coverage and situational awareness of critical facility locations. Using the latest advances in Artificial Intelligence and intelligent autonomous video analytics, integrated with access control, elevator control, fire and safety, and other critical facility systems, Valuber Security can deliver the ideal platform to protect your medical facility and reduce overall risks.
Valuber Security understands the unique access control requirements for complex medical facilities and hospitals in line with the special challenges described above. Or advanced systems are fast and reliable, providing highly accurate identity authentication and tracking that allows authorized individuals to enter and exit specific areas within the complex quickly and efficiently. Integrating these systems with other key systems, such as visitor management, gives security managers the capability to answer this question with confidence – “Who is in the building right now?”
Hospitals have traditionally hosted many visitors. Current pandemic-related risks have forced policy changes in many facilities, and increased risks from people with ill intent have raised the stakes on visitor management and access control. Valuber Security can engineer the visitor management solution you need to best help alleviate your specific security challenges, and reduce risks to the facility, staff, and patients. Typical systems include identity verification with driver license scanning, badge printing, and rules-based access privileges with self-expiring credentials.
Parking and Revenue Control Systems
For many hospitals, the parking facilities must be carefully managed to prevent misuse. Valuber Security can design and install the right parking management system to meet your needs, whether the parking area only needs video surveillance and emergency call boxes, or if it requires a full revenue control system to track validations, usage levels, and revenues received with cash and/or credit card payment stations.
Unique solutions designed to address medical facility security challenges include:
Infant Protection and Senior Wander Protection
Valuber Security offers Infant Protection Systems that address the threat of abduction at well-run hospitals and birthing centers, as well as systems to prevent Alzheimer and other memory-impaired residents from leaving facilities on their own. These systems are highly effective and create peace of mind for responsible family members. They can also be integrated with management systems to retain records for audit or performance confirmation.
Remote Worker Safety
Valuber Security offers lone worker protection systems that are ideal for remote workers such as visiting nurses or social workers, workers who are carrying high value supplies such as opiates, and workers who may be walking by themselves into large parking areas or transit stations late at night or during unpopulated hours. In each of these cases, these workers can be supported by a system that maintains an efficient and structured connection to a source of help and to their team supervisors. Valuber Security can help you keep your team safe!
