Our Solutions

  • Access Control
  • Video Surveillance
  • Intrusion
  • Unified Platform
Access Control
Access controls’ real-time identity management, readers, and credentials allow management in the cannabis industry to track who enters and exits buildings and grounds, monitoring through which door they entered and where they are currently located within the store or facility. ​
Video Surveillance
Johnson Controls’ video surveillance provides stores and facilities with 24/7 video surveillance, capturing and storing as much data as needed to enable a secure facility. We provide both video analytics and integration capabilities for a solutions-based approach to security. ​
Identifying potential physical threats at the earliest moment contributes to safeguarding facilities and stores' integral assets, quickly alerting the right authorities, and preventing any untoward incident from occurring. Our intrusion detection offers real-time alerts, enabling a faster response to mitigate risk. ​
Unified Platform
Johnson Controls’ unified platform provides access control, video surveillance, and intrusion features to be controlled from one centralized platform, providing true situational awareness of all events occurring throughout the dispensary.

Cannabis Industry Challenges​

External and Internal Theft

Recently, theft and inventory control, both internal and external, have been the biggest security challenge for cannabis retail stores and grow facilities. Johnson Controls provides video surveillance features such as edge-recording, extended storage for camera footage, instant mobile access at your fingertips, and redundant application servers. These features help maintain live situational awareness of inventory storage rooms, counters, and cash registers to help reduce liability if a situation were to occur.

Functionality and Accountability

Johnson Controls provides cannabis grow facilities and stores with a security system that is functional, accountable and scalable. Ensuring security gates, doors, and entry points are locked and available to specific workers only, allows the industry to better maintain security. Our unified access control and video surveillance creates robust and scalable surveillance that will alert you if a situation occurs across multiple locations.

Perimeter Protection

Ease of access to stores and facilities have caused crime to increase within the cannabis industry. Johnson Controls’ perimeter radar detection secures and covers the entire facility, providing automatic alerts and triggering alarms if an incident occurs.

Compliance and Regulation Standards​

Due to the abrupt entry of the cannabis industry, regulations and laws have been created to help keep the industry secure. These minimum physical security standards are set to provide the safest and most secure solutions for employees, buyers, and owners, whether at a dispensary or grow facility. Johnson Controls works within government regulations, offering cloud and mobile security systems that provide you with the best possible solution for your business. Due to states’ stringent regulations about onsite video recoding and storage, our ‘plug and play’ cloud cameras can be viewed and managed from anywhere and offer varying storage capabilities based on your needs.
