Being isolated on the edge of wilderness means there’s a need for a video system that’s both reliable and flexible. For that reason, the team at Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) since 2009 has relied on video management software (VMS) from Milestone Systems to enhance security, safety, and efficiency. Challenge – Help to keep scaling At the edge of the frontier, Jackson Hole Airport has experienced considerable growth over the years. Significant capital investments in expansions have made new video system integrations possible several times, and Milestone XProtect has supported the airport’s needs along the way. As of 2020, over 220 cameras were in use, and the airport shows no signs of slowing down As of 2020, over 220 cameras were in use, and the airport shows no signs of slowing down. New projects will include building a fuel farm, a car wash and expanded parking facilities. XProtect’s open platform software As the need to increase security continues, XProtect’s open platform software will continue to enable both IT team growth and the seamless integration of new cameras and data storage capabilities. Solution – Integrations are in the fly zone Milestone XProtect Professional Plus and Smart Client Network cameras from Axis Communications and Panasonic Optimized video server hardware from Razberi Integrated video analytics from Agent Vi All video is stored for up to a full year, with most of the system’s 200 cameras set for motion recording, 24/7. Result – Greater situational awareness for higher security The video system has enabled improvements throughout the entire airport. For example, Jackson Hole Airport has to contend with a great deal of plane de-icing for several months each year. This occurs at a distance from the main buildings and, thanks to the video expansion, each airline is now able to monitor the de-icing of their planes. Allowing clients to monitor progress on their own has saved airport staff time and resources. The airport uses the system to closely monitor the security checkpoint, too, capturing video documentation in case of an incident. Baggage areas are also monitored, so it’s possible to investigate lost bags and left-behind items by reviewing video. New 4K, multi-sensor cameras New 4K, multi-sensor cameras support a largely unmanned investigatory system New 4K, multi-sensor cameras support a largely unmanned investigatory system. They capture everything and provide enough data to zoom in after the fact, if needed. Additionally, the team has deployed video analytics from Agent Vi to provide a layer of automated alarms and notifications for flagging abnormal occurrences. Video analytics can detect events, such as travelers moving against the foot traffic flow and crossing into restricted areas. Milestone’s XProtect Smart Client Milestone’s XProtect Smart Client has shifted general situational awareness in the airport, as a new standard for authorizing users’ remote access to the surveillance from multiple locations. It provides seamless viewing of live and recorded video, instant control of cameras and connected security devices, and a comprehensive overview of activity. The ongoing use of Milestone Systems’ video management software (VMS) makes it possible to maintain the independence and efficiency of a small team of personnel, thereby delivering maximum security at the base of the Grand Teton Mountains. Situational awareness for the JAC team and their clients Andrew Wells, the IT Manager for the Jackson Hole Airport (JAC), said “Situational awareness for our team and our clients allows us to be as secure and efficient as possible with our small team. The flexibility of the open platform VMS allows us to scale our system and add the features we need now and in the future.” Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) lies seven miles north of Jackson, Wyoming, at the base of the Teton Mountains, in USA. It is unique for being entirely within Grand Teton National Park. It is the busiest airport in the US state of Wyoming, with nearly 500,000 in-bound passengers annually. The airport covers over 500 acres and has one runway that supports 11 hard-stands, nine boarding gates and three baggage carousels.
Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal Two (MMA2) is Nigeria’s preeminent air terminal. In 10 years of operation it has achieved its objective of becoming a world-class airport operator, setting new standards for the African aviation industry. As the country’s first and only privately-funded terminal, its unique structure, ultra-modern facility, world-class terminals, customer service, safety, and security are celebrated in the industry. Three thousand passengers move through the terminal each day and it is a secure working environment for more than 2,000 people. Honored multiple times Its 800-car multi-story Car Park (MSCP) is the first and largest in Lagos, Nigeria’s economic nerve center and financial hub. The airport has been honored multiple times; it was rated the best airport terminal in the country in 2014 by the Federal Ministry of Aviation; received the Most Functional Airport Terminal Award of 2016 by IFC International Limited, an aviation consulting firm; and named Nigerian Airport of the Year in 2017 by WorldStage Limited. Its 800-car multi-story Car Park (MSCP) is the first and largest in Lagos The airport is funded and operated by BiCourtney Aviation Services Limited under the PPP (public private partnership) concession agreement between the Nigerian federal government and Bi-Courtney. The terminal has been renovated several times over the years, and has become a benchmark for airport operations in Nigeria. One important component of this is the airport’s recently upgraded video security system, which modernized the earlier hybrid system. Video security system The airport’s earlier video security system was comprised of 60 Pelco analog high-speed dome cameras, four Pelco hybrid video recorders, and a Pelco matrix/switcher controller. While still functional, the system could no longer meet either the safety and security challenges of the airport in a post 9/11 world, or Bi-Courtney’s long-term operational needs. Functionally, it was challenged by what was synonymous with typical analog systems – low throughput, low resolution, low video retention, and limited storage. Added to this were the problems of decaying infrastructure, the high cost of maintenance, and incessant communication failures. To ensure that all bases were covered and their needs would be met, Bi-Courtney Aviation Services began the upgrade process by commissioning a consultant for a site survey and issuing an RFP. Baggage claim points As a local integrator and experienced Pelco channel partner, we met all of these objectives” Based on a number of factors including system design, product features, cost, local support capability, and experience, the bid was awarded to BOW Dynamic Systems Ltd. with a Pelco system design. According to A.O. (Adeniyi) Ajayi, Director, Operations and Engineering of BOW Dynamic Systems, airport management had one primary goal for the upgrade – to offer a safe, secure, and pleasant experience to passengers in all parts of the airport, from the parking lot to the lobby and check-in terminals, as well as baggage claim points, cargo areas, and apron. Finding the right technology partner was imperative to achieving this goal. “As a local integrator and experienced Pelco channel partner, we met all of these objectives,” said Otunba Ladi Animashaun, MD/CEO of BOW Dynamic System. “Our comprehensive understanding of the airport’s needs, combined with our deep knowledge and experience with Pelco products, gave us a competitive advantage over other local and international integrators.” Integrated analytics software At the core of the new system design is the Pelco open platform VideoXpert Video Management System (VMS), which is an upgrade from the previous Pelco Endura VMS. The VMS maintains the database of the newly installed Pelco cameras and recording devices as well as integrated analytics software. The VideoXpert platform enables the aggregation of the various systems into a single, intuitive user experience which is accessed through a convenient web interface for system navigation. The VMS maintains the database of the newly installed Pelco cameras and recording devices By unifying operational and security data via a single user interface, airport management has an intelligent end-to-end IP video solution for proactive response to situations within the terminal. “The benefit of VideoXpert goes well beyond the capabilities of the previous analog environment. For instance, they can now see live video associated with any triggered alarm,” said Mr. Adetoye Adeyale, BOW Project Supervisor. On-Board analytics capability “Essentially, it allows operators to better see what they need to see, when it’s needed, so they can make faster and more effective decisions that will help keep the airport safer and more secure.” The replacement video security cameras are another critical upgrade to the overall security of the airport with improved image quality, streaming, and on-board analytics capability. In total, 187 Pelco cameras comprising 21 different models are in use throughout the facility so that the best combination of technology, lenses, and other factors are used to meet the needs of each location. For outdoor security around the airport and in the airport lobby areas where the lighting conditions change throughout the day, BOW installed Pelco’s low-light Sarix cameras. Optera panoramic cameras High-resolution Spectra PTZ dome cameras are used in the parking structure High-resolution Spectra PTZ dome cameras are used in the parking structure, baggage claim points, cargo area, and other parts of the airport, so that in the event of an incident or alert, critical identifying features can be seen in HD detail. Optera panoramic cameras with PTZ capabilities provide additional situational awareness. Most of the cameras feature Pelco’s SureVision technology for improved Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) performance and Smart Compression technology for reduced bit rate usage and storage savings. According to Mr. Akeem Saliu, BOW Project Manager, the cameras’ suite of built-in analytics provides the airport’s security team with increased advantages that enable them to be more productive and ultimately enhance overall security of the airport and surrounding areas. He says, “In addition to conventional features such as motion detection or camera tampering, these intelligent cameras have advanced tracking capabilities.” Pedestrian traffic flow “For example, it’s possible for the system to alert security operators if a person enters a restricted area or walks against pedestrian traffic flow. The camera analytics can even recognize when a piece of luggage has been left unattended or an individual is loitering, and then notify security.” The VSM provides automatic distributed load balancing and active-active failover For video archiving where a minimum of six-months of video retention is required, BOW installed seven VSM servers for a total of 384 terabytes along with three storage pool devices on RAID 6. The VSM provides automatic distributed load balancing and active-active failover within a storage pool to ensure continued recording if catastrophic failure occurs. The design-build features two control centers; one for operations and one for security. Alert security operators The security center has a video wall with six 55- inch screen monitors, as well as four 24-inch screen monitors dedicated for alarms, event management, and analytics reports, and two desktop screens for each of the two operator’s workstations. The operations center focuses on apron activities, airfield, hangers, and takeoff and landing of the aircraft, and has two 46-inch screen monitors as well as two 24-inch screen monitors. Additionally, the operation center client is utilized remotely by both the CEO and CSO; they can call on any camera for forensic purposes or for an overview of operations within the facility. Accommodating future growth The unrestricted architecture is designed to scale and accommodate future growth” “BOW’s network design, configured by certified CCIE personnel, features a star topology with remote intermediate distribution frame (IDF), which is connected to the main distribution frame with fiber optic cables. The unrestricted architecture is designed to scale and accommodate future growth. Network security, switching, and routing complies with industry and cybersecurity protocols. The design, system architecture, and project delivery is an unprecedented success both for the aviation industry and the system user,” says Adeniyi Lawal, BOW IT Support Manager. “Our new Pelco system is smart, easy to use, and flexible – and exactly what we needed to maintain the safety and security of the airport,” adds Captain Williams, MD, Bi-Courtney Aviation. “It’s a game changer, giving us confidence and more complete control and providing a higher level of security for airport passengers, workers, and operators.”
The outlook for advancements in door security solutions is proving to be an extension of the positive trends that have emerged over the past few years and that continue to evolve in exciting new ways. That’s a good sign as we make our way along the road toward an ever-safer world. Improvements in a hybrid workforce  Here’s what we’re seeing: More and more companies are rethinking the office space and how electronic access control (EAC) security and data can help better serve the hybrid workforce. More colleges and universities are adopting mobile credentials to meet the expectations of students. And we’re seeing EAC being integrated into more applications that go beyond the traditional doorway. Among K-12 schools, the current trend surrounds ensuring classroom doors are secured with proper locksets Among K-12 schools, the current trend surrounds ensuring classroom doors are secured with proper locksets, retrofitting where required, and reinforcing training for safe operation. We continue to experience steady demand for specialty doors and touchless openings in the healthcare industry. And we’re seeing an ever-increasing emphasis across the board on the aesthetics, sustainability, and resilience of door security products. Rethinking the workspace The use of electronic access control and security management infrastructure as a mechanism to do non-security tasks also continues to expand. One of the trends in building design is rethinking how people need to use workplace settings. Today, there’s less need to come into the company office and sit at a desk or cube to answer emails and use the computer. Instead, the focus is on designing spaces that facilitate collaboration and face-to-face interaction. Electronic access control and data This rethinking of spaces means that security professionals must work closely with architects and end users to assess how many people may likely be coming in during a typical week. EAC data can shed light on these patterns and improve the planning process to identify which technologies are the best fit for a facility and that support the primary mission of the organization using that facility. Energy efficiency  Access control data capture is helping to make building management platforms smarter for improving comfort Integration of EAC with other security systems is also trending higher. In addition to managing people entering and exiting openings, access control provides the kind of data and interaction that’s useful for developing apps to schedule hoteling (reserving unassigned desks), meeting rooms, and locker assignments. Access control data capture is helping to make building management platforms smarter as well as improving comfort, wellness, and energy efficiency by controlling HVAC, window coverings, and lighting. Mobile Credentials on the rise  Mobile access is another trend that continues to skyrocket. Outside the hospitality space, we see this being driven primarily by student bodies at the university and college levels. Other sectors are recognizing this flexibility as well, for the convenience it provides the user and for administrators responsible for issuing and modifying credentials, which can be implemented quickly and remotely. There are over 270 million smartphones in the U.S. currently, and people use them for everything today, whether it’s paying for an item with a mobile wallet or tapping a reader to gain access somewhere. Most of us always have our phones with us, so it’s very rare that we forget or lose them as we might with a keycard or brass key. We’re also far less likely to lend our phones to someone else to make a purchase or get in a door. Access-controlled lockers Speaking of purchases, the “amazonification” of so many businesses in the past three years is fueling the steady rise of package deliveries to college dormitories. The same applies to office buildings and multi-family units. This means greater demand for innovative access-controlled lockers to receive the deliveries, secure them, and ensure privacy.  Along with lockers, EAC, mobile, and intelligent locks have been making their way into more non-traditional openings This is why you’re seeing a proliferation of locker systems like Luxer One in residence halls, offices, and other locations today. Along with lockers, EAC, mobile, and intelligent locks have been making their way into more non-traditional openings, including server cabinets, medication drawers and lockers, and critical unmanned infrastructure such as traffic control cabinets that dot nearly every intersection. K-12 security One of the best options for preventing loss of life during an active shooter event is to ensure that doors are locked and remain secured. The technology barrier to keeping kids and teachers safe is extremely low. If you can keep a door to a classroom or collaboration space secured, you can keep an intruder out until help arrives. And we’re not talking about needing new technologies to get the job done right, although we certainly continue to innovate them even for traditional door hardware. Automatically locking doors  Classroom doors that require a key to lock and unlock them from the outside have been around for years. Additional models automatically lock when the door is closed, allowing the teacher to lock the door from either side and/or have an indicator to verify it’s secured. Of course, for safety and code compliance, free egress is always necessary so everyone can get out in an emergency. Lockset solutions  The trend now is about ensuring the right classroom lockset solutions are in place and that faculty and staff are updated There should also be accommodations that ensure first responders and other authorized personnel can gain entry when necessary. The trend now is about ensuring the right classroom lockset solutions are in place (such as Corbin Russwin or SARGENT Classroom Intruder or Storeroom function locks), and that faculty and staff are well-versed and consistently updated on proper operation and safety procedures.  Specialty doors and access convenience for healthcare Touchless (a.k.a. no-touch) and low-touch access technologies were developed as convenient opening solutions well before the pandemic. It’s logical then that demand has accelerated and continues to do so. Low-touch activation takes just an easy bump of a button with a forearm, elbow, or hip, or the press of a foot pedal. With fully touchless technology, a sensor automatically opens the door on approach. For restricted environments, a quick scan of a badge, phone, or fob activates the sensor. We’re also supplying more anti-microbial/anti-viral coating options today as part of further efforts to prevent the spread of germs in healthcare environments. Sliding and pocket doors In addition, there’s a bigger push in healthcare for sliding and pocket doors that are typically easier to open, save space by eliminating the radius required for a swinging door and feature newer insulating materials that make them more energy efficient and keep rooms quieter, more private, and more comfortable. Plus, they have a greater aesthetic quality to them with wood and other decorative finishes that are available. Architectural aesthetics The key is designing security and architectural hardware so they work in harmony and enhance the user experience When we think about trends, fashion and interior design often come to mind. Aesthetics apply to door openings as well and have become increasingly important to the architectural community and building industry. Just as fashion keeps upping the game by changing color palettes, textures, and patterns, so do the interior design world, doors and door hardware included. Retail stores often set the bar for interior design and inspire other commercial settings to follow. That’s why our company continuously invests in developing rich lines of styles, finishes, textures, and color palettes for everything from levers and pulls to specialty doors and glass door hardware solutions. The key is designing security and architectural hardware so they work in harmony and enhance the user experience within a space. Glass Glass is another trend that’s seeing continued growth due to its clean look, fire resistance, and 100% recyclability. It also contributes to sustainability by allowing light and warmth into a space. Great strides have been made with access control locks for glass recently, especially with our Aperio low-profile solutions that are fast becoming a hit with architects and interior designers. Demand for sustainable solutions and products Architects, designers, and builders also continue to place extremely high importance on the sustainability attributes of the products they choose for their projects. We’re fortunate that our company has been immersed in advancing sustainability for over 15 years and has made significant progress with ambitious goals for our operations, innovation, material ingredient sourcing, and manufacturing to lower the carbon footprint substantially. Third-party certifications Environmental Product Declarations, Health Product Declarations, and Declare Labels add another level of accountability Architects, builders, and end-users also expect their suppliers to seek and obtain third-party certifications of sustainable products to ensure compliance. All our sustainable products go through this process. Verifiers like GreenCircle Certified independently audit and validate our claims. Environmental Product Declarations, Health Product Declarations, and Declare Labels add another level of accountability. Resilience Last, but not least, is the trend toward becoming as resilient of a facility and operation as possible. Customers from all sectors are more focused than ever on ensuring the safety of those they employ, teach, heal, and house as well as the livelihoods their organizations provide. Whether it’s battening down the hatches with a FEMA-rated tornado shelter door, providing safe access with door security solutions that remain operational during outages, specifying certified sustainable materials, or deploying tighter cybersecurity measures in our increasingly interconnected world, built-in resilience is a must-have. Expect these intriguing door security trends to keep evolving for the better as we forge ahead with exciting solutions for even more valuable applications that help make life a safer and more open experience.
