Government Security Systems

Cutting-Edge Government Security Solutions

Government facilities require the highest level of security available and must use specific security measures to continue operating, including:

  • U.S. government-approved security cameras
  • Tight building access control systems
  • NDAA-compliant cameras (depending on facility type)
  • Robust locks

These government security solutions help federal and state facilities stay compliant with Interagency Security Committee (ISU) regulations by implementing the following best practices:

  • Facility access control
  • Occupant emergency programs
  • Risk management plan implementation

Paramount helps government institutions integrate these practices into their operations to protect sensitive documents and federal information.


Does your government security system meet federal standards?

Levels of Government Buildings

There are five levels of government buildings, and each one requires unique security measures:

  1. Level 1: Buildings with no more than 2,500 square feet, ten or fewer federal employees, and limited to no public access
  2. Level 2: Institutions with 2,500 to 80,000 square feet, 11 to 150 federal employees, and moderate public access
  3. Level 3: Facilities with 80,000 to 150,000 square feet, 151 to 450 federal employees, and moderate to high public access
  4. Level 4: Buildings with 150,000 square feet or more, more than 450 federal employees, and a high level of public access
  5. Level 5: Institutions that are similar to Level 4 but are considered critical to national security

We offer integrated security systems that meet the qualifications for any government building level.

Let’s look at the government security system options we provide:

Government Camera Surveillance

Government facilities need the highest quality of video surveillance technology to correctly monitor activity inside and outside the building. Paramount offers customizable camera systems for all levels of government buildings. Our government camera surveillance solutions include:

Motion-Activated Cameras

Motion-activated cameras detect movement in places where there shouldn’t be any. These cameras begin recording when triggered by the movement of an object or person. You can integrate mobile notifications with your motion-activated cameras to be notified when your cameras recognize something.

These are especially helpful after hours when few or no people are in the building.

Integrated CCTV

CCTV, or closed-circuit television, is a type of video surveillance that transmits a signal to a set of monitors. This surveillance allows you to monitor activity inside and outside of your facility in real time. Some of the capabilities of Paramount’s CCTV solution include:

  • Night vision
  • Motion detection
  • Remote accessibility
  • Pan, tilt, zoom
  • Audio recording

These features allow you to monitor audio and video continuously, so you always know who’s inside your building. The presence of cameras also helps deter criminals and employee theft.

Paramount offers U.S. government-approved security cameras to ensure your surveillance system is compliant with relevant requirements.


Snapshot Imaging

Snapshot imaging is the ability to take real-time photos using your video surveillance system. This capability allows you to take photos of suspicious activity inside or outside the building while it’s happening. Snapshot imaging also ensures that no misbehavior goes unnoticed.

Building Access Control Systems

Our building access control systems are scalable and customizable. We offer three types of BAC systems suitable for all levels of government buildings:

Discretionary Access Control (DAC)

DAC systems give control to a small number of individuals. This allows a handful of high-level executives or human resource leaders to grant and restrict employee access throughout your government facility. DAC systems are the least restrictive type of BAC we offer.


Mandatory Access Control (MAC)

MAC is essentially the opposite of the DAC model. Instead of giving system control to a small group of executives, this model gives control to a single individual, like a Chief Security Officer or HR department manager. Your chosen individual is the only one who can determine employee access permissions. 

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

RBAC is more automated than DAC and MAC. This BAC system includes an administrator like MAC, but it creates access permissions based on employee roles. This is an excellent BAC option for high-level government facilities because you can customize each employee’s permissions based on the rooms and information they need access to.

Key Cards

Key cards are an integral part of government security systems. A key card is a tool that allows employees in specific areas; without it, one cannot enter the facility. This security feature ensures that only authorized personnel can access the building and helps prevent burglary.

Key cards are a must-have for any level of government building, and Paramount is the expert with this technology. No matter the size or number of people in your government facility, we can install a key card system that meets your needs. The types of keycards you can choose from include:

  • Proximity cards: Read-only, non-swipe, contactless cards that can typically be read from a range of up to 15 inches
  • Smart cards: Contactless and can be read from a range of up to four inches
  • Hybrid key cards: Contactless with two types of technology: magnet stripes and smart chips
  • Wiegand cards: Unique cards that use low-carbon vicalloy, an alloy of cobalt, iron, and vanadium, to store a specific number (must use a Wiegand reader)
  • RFID cards: These cards store data in a microchip called the radio frequency identification tag

Parking Lot Lighting

Parking lot lighting is critical for high-security buildings. Not only does it help employees drive safely, but it also deters criminals, enhancing the overall safety of the lot.
