Genetec helps Brazil’s Floripa Airport enhance safety and leisure from curb to gate

Genetec – a leading technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations and business intelligence solutions – has announced that the company’s flagship unified security platform, Security Center, has been chosen by Brazil’s Hercílio Luz International Airport in Florianópolis (Floripa), to manage its physical security infrastructure and provide operational insights.

Named ‘best airport in Brazil’ by the Brazilian National Civil Aviation Secretariat (SAC), Floripa is one of Brazil’s most modern airports. Managed by Zurich Airport Brazil, the airport underwent an extensive expansion project and reopened in October 2019 to accommodate up to eight million passengers a year. Floripa is both a busy travel hub for domestic flights and international destinations throughout South America and a popular shopping and entertainment destination for the local community.

The Genetec platform currently manages over 500 cameras and 210 doors to administrative and critical areas of the terminal, such as boarding, arrivals and customs. Because Genetec Security Center is based on an open platform it can integrate a variety of operational systems and sophisticated analytics tools, such as the ability to identify and track unaccompanied luggage and generate alerts so that appropriate security measures can be taken.

Using the Security Center Plan Manager tool, the airport’s security teams can easily visualise and manage their security environments through an intuitive interface that displays the location of events and devices on geographical maps and floor plans.
