The City of Bridgeport installation involved integrated security solutions to protect properties throughout the city, including historic Pleasure Beach, a recently re-opened public park with close proximity to many high-target security risks, as well as the city’s 40 public schools. State-of-the-art technology used in the installation included thermal imaging cameras, wide dynamic range cameras, active deterrent systems, wireless video transmission, solar-powered arrays, and video management systems.
