Access Control
Our access control solutions enable entrances, exits, and perimeters to be fully monitored and restricted to only certain personnel. With many activities occurring at the same time in a transportation center, access control protects company grounds and goods at all costs. 
Video Surveillance
JCI’s video surveillance allows for there to always be eyes in the sky. With everyone on the constant go in transportation, our cameras and systems capture and store as much data as needed to enable a secure transportation center for your company.
Identifying potential physical threats at the earliest will contribute to safeguarding transportation center assets, quickly alert the right authorities, and prevent any untoward incident from even occurring. Our intrusion detection offers real-time alerts, enabling a faster response to mitigate risk.
Unified Platform
Johnson Controls offers advanced security integration through a unified security operations center to deliver enhanced visibility along with streamlined management and information reporting. By doing this, your transportation center will have a more comprehensive approach, easier administration, and greater customization with numerous integrations.

Transportation Challenges​


Full Perimeter Security​

Transportation security expands over the interior and exterior perimeter requiring 24/7 security to limit safety concerns, theft, vandalism, and violence for onsite personnel and visitors. Improved visibility through our security operations center lower’s risk and enhances capabilities from the SOC center to better address things from the back, giving security on grounds more visibility.

Restricted Access Management​

High security areas in airports, railways, and seaports are the most critical points of safety. Johnson Controls provides features such as the two-man rule, timed area pass through, and escort rules to help fully secure these areas. Our systems are easy to learn and use, providing a solution for high employee turnover. Johnson Controls excels in high assurance capabilities, working together with government issued PIV, TWIC, and CAC credentials to provide full coverage to fit government issued security mandates. 


Traveler/ Worker Security​

Transportation centers must have excellent analytics to control the hustle of traveling. Perimeter radar detection enhanced by our analytics and alerts, powerful AI, object classifications, and linger detection for actionable real-time information helps with awareness and response time always providing top-of-the-line safety and security for the whole interior and perimeter of your transportation system. In addition, AI and analytics keep all the details on a unified Security Operations Center (SOC), providing your system with the best protection.



With many transportation centers battling the pressure to reduce operating and lifecycle costs, investment in security may cause concern. We want our customers to know we understand the constraints within the lifecycle of hardware and IT infrastructure, Johnson Controls offers open integration with over 260+ capabilities that work with all hosted systems. We allow you to enhance your product with low-cost integrations with unneeded upgrades.
