From minimum to high security, correctional institutions face unique security challenges, which include escape attempts, contraband, violent incidents, and more. At EAS, we are experienced in protecting highly regulated environments (see our list of clients) and we offer seamless end-to-end solutions to improve operations and increase prison security for inmates, staff, and visitors. Keep reading to learn about our preferred security systems for prisons and correctional institutions in Puerto Rico.
1. Intruder Detection Systems
Maintaining a secure perimeter is a critical requirement for correctional facilities. Our best-in-class fence-mounted sensors from Senstar detect perimeter incidents immediately and report the exact location to your security systems to sound alarms or call-up specific cameras and PTZ locations.
The LM100 sensors (the world’s first Intelligent Perimeter Lighting and Sensing Solution) combine high-performance LED lighting with intrusion detection sensors and can reduce energy costs by as much as 95%.
2. Video Surveillance Systems
Video surveillance systems are an essential tool for correctional officers — providing full coverage, real-time alerts, and analytics. We work with the industry’s best security cameras and video management systems, designed for exceptional performance in indoor and outdoor environments.
One of our preferred solutions is Pelco’s Sarix IBD Series High-Security Corner-Mount Camera. This vandal-resistant fixed camera is specially designed for use in protected, high-risk areas. Its 45º angled position allows it to capture video for an entire 10 by 10 m (32.8 x 32.8 ft.) room, including directly below the camera, without blind spots.
3. Security Turnstiles and Entry Control
Access control solutions like Alvarado’s security turnstiles secure sensitive and restricted areas and provide unmanned entry control. The MST full height turnstile, for example, is Alvarado’s most trusted, secure, and reliable maximum security FHT available. We also partner with AMAG, Suprema, IDEMIA, HID Global, Kantech, C-CURE 9000, and other great brands for multi-factor authentication access control, audit trail reporting, visitor + employee management systems, and other solutions.
4. Key Control and Management
Physical keys continue to be mission-critical for correctional facilities (handling hundreds or even thousands of keys). Our KeyWatcher® systems from Morse Watchmans offer the best solution for managing, controlling, tracking, and auditing keys. Their electronic tamper-proof cabinets can only be accessed by authorized users (with pre-programmed PIN codes, access cards or biometrics) and provide full tracking, reporting, and alerts. We also recommend their tamper-proof key rings and secure storage locker cabinets.
5. Communication Solutions
Communication has a key role in day-to-day operations. Partnering with Viking Electronics, Axis Communications, Aiphone, and other great brands, we offer the best in IP communication and phones, intercoms, and PA systems. The Axis C1310-E Network Horn Speaker (all-in-one speaker system) is an ideal solution for public address and an invaluable tool for providing voice instructions during emergency situations.
