Our Security Products

IP Convergence

Johnson Controls is driving the current trend towards integrated system based on IP protocols and technologies. Out-of-date systems are modernized and replaced, offering an opportunity to link up logistics and security systems using unified, universal technology. Control centers can then realize more comprehensive company tasks and can be monitored and controlled securely from another chosen site with internet access.

Access Control

Logistics tasks nowadays need to be operated 24 hours a day almost everywhere. In the field of access control, Johnson Controls offers simple access control centers including highly developed, cross-site biometric monitoring systems.

Fire Alarm Systems and Fire Extinguishing Systems

The development of fire alarm systems is a central aspect of our business. Johnson Controls combines ultramodern technologies to detect fires faster and to minimize the damage caused by them. The protection of transport systems from fire requires constant vigilance. Our products and services offer comprehensive fire safety solutions from space-saving installations for smaller applications via demanding analog addressable control units to large, networked extinguishing systems.

Remote Video Surveillance

Every facility can be monitored remotely: operating depots, entrance gates, loading ramps or trucks, to name a few. We develop algorithms that trigger alarms in surveillance centers if something unusual or suspicious happens. Everything can be connected to networks using the latest IP technology.

Intrusion Detection

The disappearance of goods through burglary is one of the most serious threats to logistics companies. The intrusion alarm systems by Johnson Controls use enhanced IP technology to provide reliable protection. Based on video images or sensors, these interactive systems can be monitored remotely.

Vehicle and Freight Tracking

Vehicle and freight tracking solutions by Johnson Controls secure freight, trailers, and drivers in national and continental goods transportation and make a significant contribution in securing trade routes. Security solutions by Johnson Controls include camera surveillance of loading and unloading, GPS tracking for movement reports, and full control of goods, no matter if it is a full load, a groupage shipment or just a single (secured) box.

Temperature Control

Many goods, in particular in the pharmaceutical sector, must be kept at a constant temperature to maintain their efficacy. We help our customers to monitor the cold chain for the entire duration of transportation to protect these valuable goods.

Seamless Monitoring of Conveyable Products and Unit Goods
Increasing globalization poses ever new challenges for logistics service companies, too. Shipments must be weighed, their dimensions recorded, and freight volumes calculated. Ever more frequently, security aspects are coming into play too, justified by the increasing number of packages sent across borders, especially as air freight. Our joint Dimensioning, Weighing, Scanning (DWS) solutions offer a fully integrated security system throughout the process chain: “Measure, weigh, read barcode and X-ray”. The result is a seamless documentation of dependable profile data for all manufactured shipments (small items, packages, and freight).

Johnson Controls Protects What Matters the Most
