New York's Westchester County

New York's Westchester County Protects two county buildings and an adjoining parking structure with an extensive Access Control-Based Security System, C•CURE® 800 and NetVue video integration software by Software House.

Recently, a fire alarm led to the evacuation of employees and members of the public from the main government executive building in New York's Westchester County. Using a new integrated security system, public safety officials were able to check video associated with the event. Within seconds they saw that an elderly woman had mistakenly pulled an alarm, thinking it was necessary to enter an adjacent restroom. Those who had already left the building were allowed to quickly return.

While the event turned out to be a non-emergency, county officials were happy to see that their multi-million dollar investment had worked as planned.

Westchester County, located just north of New York City in southern New York state, is home to nearly one million residents. The county serves as corporate headquarters for a number of well-known companies, including PepsiCo and IBM. White Plains is the county seat.
