Perimeter Security


A Royal Dutch Treat

We've written about cargo, port and airport security in the past, but there's nothing like seeing a port first-hand to understand how it all works. Without an up close and personal view, much is left to the imagination of how seagoing vessels arrive in port to unload, only to depart a few days later with hundreds of loaded containers.

Milestone Surveillance System Reduces Vandalism For Denmark Residents

Since the Hojstrup Housing Association in the Danish city of Vollsmose installed Milestone video surveillance in the spring of 2008, the costs of vandalism have fallen 36 percent. It has created better security for the residents and more money to make improvements for youth activities.

Protecting the Cyber Side

Vandalism, theft and acts of terrorism in recent years have motivated the electric generation and transmission industry to seek viable security solutions. Companies must secure their facilities and protect their physical and electronic assets while managing access to their properties state-to-state over geographically widespread regions.

Healthy Results

AlliedBarton Security Services began its partnership with Virtua Mt. Holly Hospital in New Jersey 16 years ago and has been providing access control and mobile and walking patrols, monitoring security cameras and teaching security-related classes ever since.

Odyssey Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of Remote Eyes® digital video management systems, has partnered with IntelliVision, a vendor of intelligent video analysis solutions, to produce an integrated small form factor network surveillance solution with edge video analytics capabilities including people counting, loitering detection, and face detection and search.

Call of Duty

The Field of Flags, a traveling war memorial dedicated by the Somers Congregational Church in Somers, Conn., began in October 2005 with 2,231 American flags, one for each American solider who died serving his or her country in Iraq and Afghanistan. The idea for the memorial came about as members of the church considered what they could do to show support for the troops. Each casualty reminded them of the dangers the soldiers face every day. The flags honor those who have given their lives as well as their families, whose lives have been forever changed.

The Game Plan

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the American sports industry has increased security at major sporting venues and at high-profile events such as the Super Bowl, World Series and Olympics. Stadiums provide a perfect target for mass casualties and catastrophic economic impact, and even university sports programs are taking the necessary steps to secure their stadiums and campuses against potential threats.



Integration On Guard

The National Union of Mineworkers is the largest recognized collective bargaining agent representing workers in the mining, construction and electrical energy industries in South Africa, and the largest affiliate of the Congress of the South African Trade Unions, where non-racialism was a founding principle.

Touchdown!

Lambeau Field is the first outdoor football stadium built for the exclusive use of the NFL's Green Bay Packers, winners of 12 league championships. Lambeau Field was voted the No. 1 stadium in atmosphere and fan experience by a Sports Illustrated online poll in 2007.

AlertSense Protects University of Illinois' Campus and County

MyStateUSA deployed AlertSense, a global notification system, to be used at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the County of Champaign, Illinois.

Looking into the Wild

In a world haunted by crime, violence and the unexpected, it's comforting to know that CCTV surveillance keeps an eye on us in many of the places we go—from a stadium, a shopping mall or an airport, to the office parking lot at night.But one IP video solution manufacturer recently installed a surveillance system at a less common location— the Vienna, Austria, Zoo—that is less focused on people than it is on pandas, rhinos and penguins.

Solar Targets

Europe's large photovoltaic power stations represent significant investments and require effective protection against theft and vandalism. With the specific needs of this emerging market in mind, Geutebruck has teamed up with physical security specialist Haverkamp GmbH and system integrator Akera Security GmbH to supply customized, all-in-one PV power station security solutions.

Countering a Calamity

In today’s world, any manufacturing or critical infrastructure facility is at risk of a terrorist attack.

Perimeter Prowess

Acts of terrorism can be carried out in many forms and at various locations around the world. Those who pose the most risk are individuals or groups that breach secured areas of critical infrastructure facilities, such as seaports and airports, government buildings or power and chemical plants.

Wireless IP Video System Protects Italian Hospital

IndigoVision’s integrated IP-CCTV system has been chosen to protect the main hospital complex in the Italian city of Palermo. Situated in the center of the city, Villa Sofia-CTO consists of three main hospital buildings located on a single site.
