Managing airports is a herculean task. From airport managers to business travelers and vacationers, everybody wants the operations to run as efficiently as possible. Considering airports are major transit points, with people and cargo from all over the world moving in and out, security is of utmost importance.
Johnson Controls uses a comprehensive approach to do it all—ensuring safety while increasing the efficiency of the airport.
Every day, airport executives and staff meet the needs of a population the size of a city. They are responsible for assuring the safety and comfort of passengers, employees, and visitors. So, it’s critical that airport facilities operate at the highest levels of efficiency and reliability.
Johnson Controls provides technology solutions that improve passenger satisfaction and security, while enhancing business operations. We take a holistic approach and offer a single point of responsibility for the design, integration, and ongoing performance of all the systems in an airport facility. This means we can make a bigger impact on lifecycle costs, and enhance the functional capabilities of airports around the globe.
Our Metasys® building automation system is the nerve center which connects everything from airport security, fire detection, and ID access controls to flight visualization, check-in systems, and baggage handling. It also tells HVAC systems to monitor comfort and lighting levels, addresses escalators and moving walkways—all while managing the systems that maximize energy efficiency.
The number one priority for airports today is ensuring the safety and security of passengers and staff. Doing so requires an integrated security system that can serve the airport's functional needs, as well as be ready for future requirements.
As master systems integrators, supporting over 50,000 systems worldwide, we look at the big picture, not just products or proprietary systems. From consultation to installation, our decades of expertise in security technology helps us to simplify the integration process, no matter if you're installing a new security system or connecting legacy technology. Our life-safety systems include access control, fire detection and alarm, video surveillance, and network controllers. And our unique network of technology partners enables us to provide the most comprehensive security and fire solutions in the industry.
By integrating the lighting controls, security, fire alarm, and other airport specialty systems with a Metasys® building automation system, airport personnel are able to monitor and control the systems from a central location, thereby increasing airport efficiency.
