Integrated Access Control Systems to improve security for major US port

Tensor – experts in CCTV  maintenance, systems takeover, design and deployment

Integrated access controls systems can help significantly improve the security of personnel and freight in any major port, which is also exactly the reason why Port Manatee, located at the entrance to Tampa Bay and is the closest US deep-water seaport to the Panama Canal, has decided to choose the widespread implementation of such a system.

This is a considerable undertaking for a port that has more than 7.25 million tonnes of cargo passing through annually, supports 24,000 jobs and contributed to more than US$2.3 billion in regional economic activity in 2015.

The system combines access control and physical security infrastructure management technologies in order to help the cargo-only port address its security needs, ensure compliance with federal TWIC (Transportation Worker Identification Credential) requirements, and support its overall business objectives, according to a news report.

The facility’s security solution has allowed Port Manatee to streamline its processes and increase efficiency by enabling officials to track the movement of goods throughout the port and establish workflows to manage different commodity types – making sure the right cargo is moved in and out properly.

Tensor – experts in designing and installing integrated port access control and security systems

Tensor has an extensive experience in installing CCTV systems and commissioning comprehensive video management solutions for large multi-site facilities. We provide total security management solutions, fully scalable end to end integrated solutions capable of managing, via a single platform, multiple video sources including Thermal Optics as well as our wide range of other systems including Access Control, Ground Radar Detection, Intruder Detection and number plate recognition.

Our access control solutions are custom designed to meet our clients needs and are designed to manage anything from small single sites to city wide systems to national multi site solutions.

Using products from the Tensor Partner range, our security solutions deliver the highest performance in the industry and customers are assured of receiving the most reliable systems available.

Tensor uses only the latest and most advanced technologies supplied by our partner companies, including a high performance video-surveillance solution for facial recognition, specially designed for the simultaneous identification of subjects in crowded and changeable environments.

This top-range technology is optimized for environments with large crowds in constant movement, such as maritime ports, airports, metro and train stations, shopping centres, sports stadiums and urban centres, and makes it possible to record subjects automatically through (on-the-fly) video capture. The system works correctly even with partial facial concealment, wearing of glasses, handkerchiefs or caps, changes in facial expression, difficult lighting conditions and slight rotations of the face.

Another advanced technology we employ is BioAccess, which ties in with Tensor’s extensive experience in the access control solutions’ segment. This technology employs face biometrics in order to identify a user from access control lists and to verify their identity, as well as check their access rights to specific parts of the site.
