Targeting taggers and vandals

Impressive cultural center counts on outdoor detection

Full situational awareness

The SightLogix perimeter security solution at BAPS is integrated with Genetec's Omnicast IP video surveillance management system. As a Certified Genetec Partner, the SightLogix outdoor video surveillance system is fully compatible with Omnicast. The pre-integrated solution enables all alarm and target information detected by SightLogix cameras to be displayed by the Genetec video management software (VMS). When a SightLogix camera detects a target that violates a user-defined security policy, the camera provides the precise Geographical Information System (GIS)-based target location to the VMS, which displays the nature of the threat and enables easy viewing of the video on the Genetec system for full situational awareness.

Nyberberg said a lesson from the BAPS installation is the need to look broadly at system costs, rather than fixating on the price of a single component, such as the higher-end cameras. "If you look at it from the overall design perspective, in the end the system will be lower priced based on its long-range performance," he said.
