SightLogix Smart Thermal Cameras Deliver Real Time Security for Correctional Facilities

SightLogix Smart Thermal Cameras Deliver Real Time Security for Correctional FacilitiesSightLogix Inc., a manufacturer of smart thermal cameras for video security applications, is solving mission-critical, outdoor security challenges for correctional facilities across North America. Accurate security and lowered costs make the SightLogix system an ideal solution for the unique challenges facing correctional organizations.

“A primary objective for correctional facilities is to keep people from leaving the property while simultaneously preventing contraband from entering,” said John Romanowich, president and CEO, SightLogix. “SightSensor smart video security cameras are a time-proven solution for the key problems faced by correctional facilities.”

One recent success story involves a detention center bordering a public area. Perpetrators were able to approach the perimeter undetected and launch contraband over the fence to insiders. Thermal SightSensors were installed to provide an automated, early warning buffer zone of security beyond the fence. Shortly after the system was running, it accurately detected perpetrators in the act of delivering contraband, alerting prison security personnel to the precise location of the intrusion as it was unfolding and leading to a successful interception.

Other correctional facility applications where the SightSensor is installed include rooftop security, roadside applications that detect vehicles loitering along the perimeter beyond a specific period of time and securing sterile zones between perimeter fences as an added layer of protection.

Unlike conventional cameras, sensors and physical perimeter security solutions, SightLogix SightSensor smart video security cameras provide a highly-accurate means of automated detection. On-board image processing is used to virtually eliminate false detection alarms caused by wind, rain, small animals and other anomalies. The same image processing provides the clearest thermal images, 24 hours a day, even in difficult weather, humidity or bright sun.

“SightSensors are delivering documented security results for correctional facilities around the country,” continued Romanowich, “while allowing management to realize a good balance between technology, manpower and cost-efficiency.”
