Perimeter Security For UN Building

The United Nations is recognised worldwide as perhaps the most valued of organisations - its continued efforts over many years to secure and maintain peace between all nations are undeniable. The UN has many buildings in many countries and between them they perform a wide variety of functions.

In 1994 the UN Security Council set up the ICTR - the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal For Rwanda or the Tribunal pénal international pour le Rwanda (TPIR) as it is also known. The court still operates today in Arusha, Tanzania. Due to the nature of the valuable work conducted within the court, security to protect the perimeter of the building is an important consideration. We were delighted to receive the commission in 2008 to provide this element of United Nations security.

Here is a photograph of part of the perimeter security installation which uses all 3 of our main security products Flexiguard™, Electro-Fence™ and Multisys Security™.

As we approach the end of 2009 we take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their business and support. We wish everyone a happy, healthy and fulfilling year ahead - one that is hopefully full of the peace that the UN strives so hard to preserve.

Security Case Study Leads to Multiview™ Development

As European leaders in the perimeter security industry, we are always pushing the boundaries and looking to new horizons with our product development programme. Multisys™ Security is a great example of this. A unique modular PC based Security Management System, it uses a common communication protocol to integrate and control the APS Electro-Fence™ controllers, Flexiguard™ analysers and other alarm devices.When we develop a new technology, the catalyst can be any one of a number of things. For example, it was a case study for a military client that spawned the idea for developing our Multiview™ security system.

During one particular perimeter security installation, the client happened to mention that what they were looking to do at some point was ideally just use one control centre for monitoring a variety of sites (i.e from one central location). Our Technical Director Andy Moon was determined to come up with a solution and the result was Multiview™, a virtual network computer system for remote monitoring.Just one of our security case studies which you can read about on aps-perimeter-security.com.
