Airport security soars on strength of integrated platform

Ever expanding and seemingly always in flux, airports present great opportunities but also major challenges for security integrators and security technology providers.

Airport Security Today

Today’s modern airports are security-centric enterprises that have multi-faceted surveillance and access control systems. Although airport security was heightened after the terrorist attacks in the United States on 9/11, anytime these facilities undergo some degree of modernization or add to their footprint, they are presented with the prospect of taking security to the next level.

However, any changes to an airport security system must take into account the substantial technological investment that has already been made as well as the importance of keeping the systems manageable on 24/7 basis.

About Izmir Airport

At Turkey’s Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport, this blending of old and new occurred as the airport constructed a new domestic terminal with a security system that needed to mesh with the one in the existing terminal installed more than 10 years earlier.

While the airport’s operator TAV-Ege was eager to introduce IP-based products into the new terminal, it also wanted to leverage its existing and still highly functional components from the old terminal such as analog cameras.

Izmir Airport

Solution

To meet the airport’s needs, together with the help of integrator Sensormatic Guvenlik Hizmetleri, Tyco Security Products presented airport officials with an integrated solution that could accommodate the 700 analog cameras from the old terminal, while also handling the 600 new IP cameras from the newly constructed building.

The installation of modern VideoEdge network video recorders (NVR) from American Dynamics and backbone systems like the victor unified security solution and Software House’s C-CURE 9000 security and event management platform ensured that the airport would manage both old and new cameras and access systems seamlessly from a single platform.

Izmir Security Center

The new unified platform also brought a fuller feature set to the airport, offering video analytics within the NVRs so security staff could:

  • Recognize and address threats more easily
  • Save time with real-time alerts of objects abandoned
  • Intelligent, powerful analytics automate security operations
  • Greatly reduce time searching for incident evidence
  • Presents better control of restricted areas through the C-CURE access control system
  •  Brings together CCTV and access so system operators can now view video along with any alarms that occurs

Even as the capabilities of the system have increased, however, the ability to manage it remains intuitive and straightforward, which is critical in a potentially high-risk environment like a major airport.

Izmir Security camera

As Turkey’s fourth busiest airport, Tyco Security Products complete solution has poised Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport for growth and scalability to allow for future system upgrades and even camera additions if warranted.

And as more airports undergo this type of expansion, the demand for integrated solutions that bring old and new systems together should only increase.

New exacqVision, Kantech and DSC Combined Security Solution

With the introduction of exacqVision 7.4, Tyco Security Products now  offers a complete platform for users to operate video surveillance, intrusion and access control from one easy-to-use interface. The new DSC PowerSeries Neo native integration combined with the Kantech access control integration introduced in exacqVision 7.2, gives users greater control to operate all security operations at once, reducing complexity for security personnel while saving time and money.

New exacqVision Video & DSC PowerSeries Neo Intrusion Integration

exacqVision 7.4 offers a complete platform for users to manage video surveillance, access control and now intrusion from one easy-to-use interface. Through exacqVision Camera Links, users can arm and disarm the system by simply clicking in live view and entering the access code.

exacqVision NEO Alarms Map

PowerSeries NEOWith the DSC PowerSeries Neo integration users can:

  • Arm and disarm the system
  • Arm and disarm from Exacq Mobile
  • Receive push notifications on Exacq Mobile for triggered alarms
  • See partition and zone status on cameras
  • See partition and zone status on maps

exacqVision Video & Kantech EntraPass Access Control

exacqVision 7.2 introduced Kantech EntraPass integration, providing users with the ability to control doors and locks directly from the live view page of the exacqVision client. With this integration, door controls can be associated with cameras using exacqVision Camera Links. This integration puts the most needed access control commands at the operator’s fingertips to vastly improve response time to critical alarms and events.

exacqVision_Kantech_Integration

The integration displays door status on maps and allows for configuration of Event Linking actions triggered by EntraPass door status alerts. All exacqVision users can see the door status on linked cameras, but must input Kantech permissions to operate doors.
