Sightlogix-Geutebruck solution time-proven in Middle East

Princeton, NJ and Windhagen, Germany

Sightlogix and Geutebruck have successfully integrated their technologies to produce a complex security solution possessing much greater flexibility and scope than the combined products would have been able to achieve individually.
“A proven perimeter application leveraging the Sightlogix-Geutebruck solution has been deployed in the harsh environment of the Middle East for over two years,” said John Romanowich, President and CEO, Sightlogix. “We’re excited to announce this collaboration so other customers can benefit from this time-proven solution.” The Sightlogix-Geutebruck deployment has been operating on a high-security 15-kilometre perimeter in the Middle East since 2009.

The combination of technologies provides actionable information about threats that may occur over outdoor areas, along with details for making quick and precise response decisions. Sightsensor video analytic cameras, which detect objects that violate perimeter security rules, can now send video and alarm information over the network for display within the Geutebruck video management system. The combined solution can also trigger actions within the Geutebruck system to initiate alarm processing, such as recording or alarm notification.

“It’s always a pleasure to see our products working in partnership with others to provide the complex mix of services users require," said Carl Raubenheimer, Executive Vice President of Geutebruck Security, Inc. “After all, that’s why Geutebruck products are designed to be flexible, cost-effective and open – so that they can be merged seamlessly into solutions where the total is worth much more than the sum of the parts.”
