Tyco to install breach control solution at George Bush Intercontinental

Security systems developer Tyco Integrated Security has installed a video-enabled exit lane breach control system at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas, USA.

The exit lane breach control solution will help to automate security procedures at the airport by using analytics technology and door control integration to alert airport officials when an object or passenger tries to enter restricted areas. In such a scenario, an alarm will sound and a warning light will flash, and the event will be captured and recorded by the system’s security cameras.

The traditional practice of manually monitoring airport exit lanes has historically been staffed with multiple guards from either the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) or the local airport. Through the adoption of sensor-based technology solutions, such as exit lane breach control and containment, officials at the airport may be able to redeploy security personnel or eliminate guard staffing altogether.

John Gaydos, vice president of Tyco Federal Systems, Tyco Integrated Security, said, “We’re thrilled to assist George Bush Intercontinental Airport with this cutting-edge exit lane breach control and containment system. Airport security is of utmost concern to airport personnel and passengers alike, and we’re pleased to be able to deliver this safer, smarter Tyco solution.”
