Our typical installation involves multi-block door control systems networked to a main control area, with duress capabilities for operating the block's doors from the main control area.
Hardened touchscreen interfaces for the correctional officers have proven to be durable in the long term, and require little to no follow-on maintenance. PLC controllers local at each cell block can operate the doors even if the network connection to the main control is disrupted.
Our door control systems manage the swinging doors, sliding doors, and overhead doors typical of prisons, as well as swinging and sliding yard gates. We are experienced in installing and servicing door control systems in blocks with active inmate populations, and are familiar with correctional systems requirements related to worker and inmate safety and tool control programs. Our door control systems feature optional "Are you sure?" confirmation of door release commands, emergency unlock and group unlock protocols (with user controllable individual "Cell Restriction" overrides), and can be configured for a variety of door lock mechanisms.
Our perimeter monitoring systems feature real time reporting of security alarms, data-logging of the alarms, and a number of reports on shift, daily, and monthly alarm activity. We establish long-term relationships with our customers, and assist them with updating or expanding the systems as requested and providing quick-response support on both on-call and contract basis.
