Security Integrator of the Year
SP&T News Security Integrator of the Year winner Habtech credits hard work and solid preparation for the success of the Toronto South Detention Centre project.
Habtech was ultimately responsible for the integration of numerous security subsystems, including CCTV, door control, a perimeter and intrusion detection system, fire alarm, lighting and power control, the public address and intercom system, as well as the video visitation system. The company also developed a GUI for touch screen control systems and digital recording systems. Products deployed include technology from Axis Communications, Pelco by Schneider Electric, Genetec, Aimetis and Notifier by Honeywell. The infrastructure was designed using Wonderware — a first for Habtech since it usually uses its own custom software. Another first was integrating with the facility’s elevator system. Habtech has been working in the security integration field for almost a quarter century, much of it in corrections. Due to the nature of the work, the integrator isn’t used to the spotlight, so to have a major project recognized by an award is a rare treat.
