King County chooses C•CURE 9000 for comprehensive, integrated security
Washington State’s most populous county integrates emergency notification, video surveillance and access control systems with single-user interface solution
WESTFORD, MA — April 13, 2016 – Tyco Security Products, part of Tyco, the world’s largest pure-play fire protection and security company, announced today that King County, Washington, has deployed the C•CURE 9000 access control solution to provide a single management platform for increased security across the region.
The most populous county in the state of Washington, King County is using the C•CURE 9000 platform to integrate its many access cards, cameras and doors, incident command center and emergency notification and duress system, tying together its multiple high-rises, courthouses, county offices and transportation facilities throughout the region. With its single user interface, C•CURE 9000 synthesizes the data from multiple locations and provides real-time, advanced notifications to security staff.
“C•CURE 9000’s integration with our Lynx Network Duress and Emergency Notification System allows us to have a powerful and automated radio dispatch system,” said Dan Kenoyer, Systems Management and Analysis Supervisor of Information Technology for King County. “This is invaluable, given the size and complexity of King County’s jurisdiction and facilities.”
With its integrator partner, SimplexGrinnell, King County is also integrating its two Sur-Gard System 5 Virtual Receivers with the C•CURE 9000 system for efficient alarm handling.
