Sea ports have a long tradition of handling important cargo, including equipment for oil and gas fields. These critical sites require complex security to protect vulnerable areas such as storage locations and unloading areas, as well as monitoring the surrounding waterways for emergency situations.
Often, upgrading these sites with a future-proof security system can prove challenging, as there are likely to be expansive legacy systems in place. New systems may also need to be integrated with security and surveillance systems in the surrounding area.
This study from FLIR Systems explores how the right VMS, coupled with an appropriate range of hardware components, can meet the challenge of providing a scalable, fully integrated and comprehensive video surveillance system in a harsh coastal port environment.
