Guarding System from Sick Wins Innovation Award

February 1, 2017

The LaserGuardian Intrusion Detection System and The HawkEye Effect software from Sick, Minneapolis, MN, has been named a 2016 winner of the Benchmark magazine Innovation Award. The award highlights advances in security technology by recognizing innovative thinking and the delivery of benefits through advanced security solutions, according to the magazine.

The LaserGuardian system combines laser-scanning technology with security cameras and software to prevent unauthorized entry to a facility or structure and minimize false alarms. Via GPS mapping technology, the system and software provide the ability to know the exact location of an intrusion and pinpoint it on an overview of the facility or interior blueprint. This allows building operations to quickly ascertain the location of the intrusion for a faster response time. The system’s image-stitching technology combines cameras and laser scanners to track the threat in real time, enhancing visual verification. The LaserGuardian system also incorporates technology to eliminate false alarms due to environmental conditions.
