Why does your care business need effective security and access control?
Safety and security of residents is a prime consideration when selecting a care environment for elderly relatives or adults with special needs. Care and Residential Home security needs to be flexible; it needs to suit the needs of clinical staff and be practical for residents with differing physical or mental capacity. According to Care Home Environment, systems that use mechanical keys often do not meet all the access needs that a modern care home may have.
It’s never been more important to know exactly who is on your site, and when.
Biometric Access Control
Secure Premises with Biometrics
Almas’s sleek Facial recognition or Fingerprint Access Control systems give care and residential homes a flexible, contactless and affordable management tool that can help you control which agency staff can access certain parts of the site, and when.
Move beyond keys, fobs and cards that can be lost or stolen and improve your security today.
Comply with Safeguarding
Almas’ biometric access control and Optima software’s flexibility means that Liberty Protection Safeguards can be addressed for each individual resident.
Anti-barricade features are built in due to the ability to remotely open any door via your mobile or the software if required. Alerts can be set if doors are wedged open, combined with CCTV snapshots to check if a resident absconds.
Integrate with Fire Alarm Systems
You need to be able to evacuate residents and staff quickly and effectively in the event of a fire or emergency.
Integrate biometric readers to the fire alarm system and they will automatically dis-engage upon activation of the alarm.
Safety Monitoring: Protect Staff and Residents
Protect Staff and Residents
Residents are vulnerable and therefore safeguarding and safety are paramount in their care environment.
Safety monitoring can help staff self-regulate their actions when dealing with patients.
Improve Health and Safety
Accidents in care homes are inevitable: some are preventable, others are not.
False claims are growing and threatening care businesses both financially and reputationally. CCTV footage provides evidence of unpreventable accidents.
React Swiftly with Fall Detection Cameras
Prevent serious injuries by detecting whether or not care home residents have suffered from a fall.
Ensure that staff are able to quickly provide support to patients that require help getting back up.
Supporting Care Campaign for the Vulnerable
Almas Industries are proud to support Care Campaign for the Vulnerable; promoting responsible CCTV to safeguard residents within a care environment.
CCTV footage provides valuable training opportunities for future improved care.

How can Liberty Protection Safeguards be enhanced by using technology?
Biometric security software allows permissions to be set at an individual level; determine access to certain rooms, at certain times, for certain people. Be alerted if doors are forced or propped open. Truly tailored access for individuals.
Do I need to conduct a PIA before implementing CCTV?
It is highly recommended that you conduct a privacy impact assessment before the installation of a new CCTV system.
What signage do I need in a Care home for CCTV?
A clear sign that displays the details of the organisation operating the system, the reason for the CCTV and its contact details. The care home must ensure that it is an appropriate size for the location and are visible to everyone that may be able to view it. Additionally, the sign should be large enough that it can act as a deterrent.
Is CCTV allowed in Care Homes?
Any CCTV system should be implemented when privacy concerns have been carefully considered and a privacy impact assessment has been completed. CCTV in a resident’s room is very invasive, and would not be recommended except under exceptional conditions. CCTV on exits and in communal areas and grounds can enhance safety and security for residents, staff and visitors. For more advice on this subject, please contact us.
