The Houston exit lane breach control solution alerts officials when an object or passenger tries to enter restricted areas Tyco Integrated Security, the leading security systems integrator, recently installed a video-enabled exit lane breach control system designed to help automate security at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Tyco aviation security experts will highlight the solution at the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) Conference & Exposition, from May 15th-18th in Houston, Texas. Houston exit lane breach control solution The Houston exit lane breach control solution uses 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. Costly security risks According to Government Security News, in recent years, breaches of airport exit lanes have posed security risks and cost airlines, airports and the traveling public millions of dollars nationwide. The traditional practice of manually monitoring airport exit lanes has historically been staffed with multiple guards from either the Transportation Security Administration or the local airport. Through the adoption of sensor-based technology solutions like exit lane breach control and containment, officials at the airport may be able to redeploy security personnel or eliminate guard staffing altogether. Enhancing airport operations “We’re thrilled to assist George Bush Intercontinental Airport with this cutting-edge Exit Lane Breach Control and Containment System,” said John Gaydos, Vice President of Tyco Federal Systems, Tyco Integrated Security. “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.” The technology chosen by the Houston Airport Systems is just one way that Tyco’s solutions can help enhance airport operations. With enterprise solutions integrated into more than 300 international airports, Tyco’s smart solutions portfolio can help airports target cost savings, operational efficiency and enhance passenger satisfaction.
