Securing the gateways of the world

Airports are major transit points, with people and cargo from all over the world moving in and out, making security the top priority. With the ever-evolving demands on airport security, airports face a unique set of challenges that Johnson Controls delivers on.

The Core to Security Solutions
Johnson Controls' Security Products address airport security needs by controlling access throughout the airport and preventing unauthorized access to secure areas. Our systems manage the flow of passengers, visitors and baggage through access points inside the airport.
Beyond Security
Historically, security systems only focused on meeting the security needs of the airport, but Johnson Controls' aviation solutions can help improve business effectiveness, such as managing access and usage of parking facilities, air bridges, and airport equipment.
Designed for the Future
Continually changing government and industry regulations mean the aviation sector needs to adapt quickly. Johnson Controls' aviation solutions provide innovative features designed to meet the changing needs of airports such as system expansion and seamless integration.

Johnson Controls' airport security systems have a demonstrated track record of being the most adaptable, reliable, and resilient.

Airports leverage integrated video for a range of applications:

Integrations with video, access control and intrusion products provide airport customers with a greater ease of operation and faster access to information.


  • Johnson Controls’ access control products can be integrated with other JCI Security Solutions including electronic systems (and third-party systems) installed at airports, including fire, CCTV and intercoms.
  • Access control alarms can be associated with digital video clips, or intercoms used to trigger CCTV cameras, enabling guards to respond to instances from one central source
  • Integrated video solutions allow airports to monitor runway traffic, public safety operations, baggage handling, gates, perimeters, and more.
  • Integrated artificial intelligence and deep learning analytics provide frictionless access control, object detection and real-time alerts to increase operational efficiency.
  • Real-time alerts can be created to work across platforms and provide immediate camera and door access resulting in accelerated incident response time, while eliminating false alarms.
