At the Wabash Valley Correctional Facility (Carlisle, IN) SAS replaced/upgraded an existing PLC-based door control system utilizing pushbutton control panels with a PLC-based touchscreen control system.
We replaced an obsolete audio intercom system with a digital-based system and replaced the proprietary lighting control system with a non-proprietary PLC-controlled system.
Security Automation Systems installed new digital video recorders in the housing units to record existing cameras and then networked them together over the existing fiber optic infrastructure.
The door, intercom and lighting systems were integrated into the new touchscreen control system. New control consoles were installed to house the new touchscreen control stations. A data-logging system was installed to record security transactions on the PLC/touchscreen system. This project was a total turnkey solution that included design, installation, programming, electrical work, testing and training.
As a separate, yet concurrent project at Wabash Valley, SAS provided a Gallagher non-lethal electric perimeter protection system for approximately 7000 feet of fence line. The system was configured for multiple zones, including man gates and sliding gates. We provided and configured the Command Center Software for annunciation of all alarms.
The system included an integration of the existing microwave detection system with the Command Center Software. We retrofitted the existing proprietary perimeter door control system at the sallyport entrance with a non-proprietary, PLC-based system. This project was a total turnkey solution that included design, installation, electrical work, testing and training.

"As the Jail Commander, I have had the pleasure of working with Security Automation Systems (SAS) on two different projects. The new addition was a phased project and given our facility was occupied, SAS worked closely with me, my staff and the construction manager to make the turnover as quick and efficient as possible to minimize our down time. We only experienced approximately 30 minutes of actual down time. This is pretty impressive. "
