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. 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.
- 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
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 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 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’s VMS makes it possible to maintain the independence and efficiency of a small team of personnel, delivering maximum security at the base of the Grand Teton mountains.
