S3 Integration has a “Tried and True” proven process along with numerous checks and balances in place to ensure that your integrated security system is installed properly and promptly. Below is an outline of our system implementation plan, from start to finish.
Initial Layout & Walk-through
Our team at S3I will work with you to determine the best plan for your project. We will indicate devices at doors, cameras, and head-end equipment, requirements for power and data, and electrified hardware types required for your system. Our engineers, designers, technicians, and on-site personnel will then work together to determine the system goals and objectives, along with the best ways to achieve them.
Installation Plans, Specs, and Value Engineering
After reviewing our engineering and design recommendations, we will produce a comprehensive set of installation plans and specs for the project. We never cut corners on our drawings and provide detailed device plan layouts, riser drawings, door elevations, equipment control elevations, detailed writing diagrams, and specifications for all peripheral devices. We are incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to system and equipment costs, potential pitfalls throughout the process, and how to avoid them and stay on track. We make sure that all of our clients get the greatest possible value for every dollar spent, whether they are spending hundreds or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Installation and System Implementation
The implementation process is monitored by S3I’s Project Manager and completed by a number of team members. Implementation begins with a “kick-off” meeting to review the project scope, plans and specs, budget, time line, materials and equipment, engineering and other pertinent information with team members prior to order of equipment. After project kick-off, the PM sets weekly meetings at which time team members report progress, discuss issues, and generally provide information necessary to keep the project on track and moving forward. Installation continues with meetings as required, field inspections, coordination of subcontractors and other trades, cabling, device mounting and terminations.
S3I’s Technical Support Specialists can perform system programming remotely or locally, whichever is more convenient for you. We can perform “complete” system programming of any system or very specific programming as needed. Custom script writing or custom reports can be created to meet unique customer requirements.
Commissioning & Testing
System commissioning occurs toward the end of the project. Once all equipment is installed, programmed and is tested for functionality and performance per the customer’s requirement.
After all of the devices are thoroughly tested to ensure their quality and effectiveness, S3 Integration can provide end-user training to ensure that the customer fully understands the system protocols, capabilities, and the administrative basics. Customer training can be performed at the Customer’s site or at S3I’s world class training facility.
