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.
