Boise Airport in the US has installed the new Security Center solution provided by Canadian IP-based system provider Genetec.
The new solution offers a unified security platform that combines access control, automatic licence plate recognition (ALPR), video surveillance and other third-party applications.
It enables the airport to manage access control points, several cameras and video analytics software from within a single unified interface.
Installation of the Genetec Security Center was carried out with the support of US-based value-added reseller (VAR) CompuNet.
Boise Airport Operations and Security airport deputy director Sarah Demory said: “As we analysed our needs and evaluated various technologies, it quickly became clear that a unified / condensed security system was the direction we wanted to go.
We learned that Genetec Security Center is installed in dozens of airports around the world to great acclaim, and we were impressed with the modern and intuitive interface of Security Center and its reputation for quality and stability, which was really important to us.”
The Genetec Security Center has allowed Boise Airport to combine the efforts of its access control and video security teams, enabling them to work in collaboration.
Prior to selecting the new solution, Demory and her team evaluated the cost of replacing the video surveillance portion of the airport’s security system.
The analysis showed that installing an open-platform unified solution for video surveillance and access control would be more cost-effective than only replacing the VMS.
