BOSTON--In early May, Tour Andover Controls and ADT Security Services were both awarded contracts to install and upgrade security systems at Boston's Logan International Airport by the Massachusetts Port Authority.
Tour Andover Controls, a provider of building automation and security systems, was tapped to replace and expand the airport's existing electronic access control and video surveillance systems. The Dallas-based company will install access control for secured doors using biometric technology and smart card readers linked to real-time servers. The company will also implement video surveillance based on video-over IP technology.
Tour Andover Controls' contract is valued at $10 million.
ADT Security Services will provide a video intrusion detection and reporting system at Logan. The system will help monitor Massport's waterfront perimeter.
ADT's contract, which the financial details of were not released, calls for the installation of sensor devices to detect perimeter movement, automated surveillance software from VistaScape Security Systems, an Atlanta-based provider of wireless network and continuing system maintenance.
Logan International Airport is the nation's 18th busiest airport and New England's largest transportation center, serving more than 23 million passengers each year.
