What are three basic features that should be identified by a facility profile?

If should identify the building structure, function, and occupants.

Intrusion Contacts use a magnetic or spring-loaded switch that breaks electrical circuit during unauthorized entry; wire and screen sensors used electrical conductors woven into screen fabric to detect cutting or removal.


What is the difference between motion detectors and photoelectronic sensors?

Motion detector sensed changes in heat, vibration, or soundwaves; photo electronic sensors detect the breaking of a beam of light.


How do CCTV cameras support security personnel?

Close circuit television cameras provide unobtrusive surveillance, allow identification prior to entry or exit, provided deterrent, can record incidents, provide better and more effective use of security personnel.
