BEI Security Announces SecureCorrectionsMesh™

Cost Effective Wireless Mesh Surveillance System for Correctional Facilities Focused on Significantly Reducing Operating Costs, ROI Achieved in 6 to 8 Months for Most Facilities

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - July 7, 2010) -  Houston-based BEI Security ( announced today the availability of SecureCorrectionsMesh™, a secure wireless detection and surveillance system capable of streaming data and video to command stations and mobile rapid response units for correctional facilities. Correctional facilities can convert 50% to 75% to unmanned towers by installing the system, providing significant measurable annual budget savings. The installed system also benefits correctional facilities struggling to hire enough correctional officers by reallocating resources to other higher needs.

SecureCorrectionsMesh™ system allows surveillance in areas previously impossible to cover due to either distance or line of sight issues. The system can be deployed quickly due to its wireless architecture. As well it can be expanded and reconfigured quickly. The mesh architecture of the network naturally provides for maximum up-time through network redundancy.

SecureCorrectionsMesh™ system runs on a private wireless 4.9GHz network unseen to outsiders/public devices, ensuring high security. Data, alerts, and video are routed on the wireless mesh network to the Command Station or to Mobile Rapid Response Units. Mobile Rapid Response officers can look at video from any camera at anytime. In case of detection, a vehicle can be quickly deployed to the area and the officer can be further directed through the use of video. The command station can also manage the detection situation utilizing video all the while as the rapid response unit moves to the location. The command station can also provide an additional layer of deterrence in a detection situation through video monitoring and, where equipped, two-way audio.
