April 11, 2023  By  SP&T Staff

Montreal-based Genetec announced that its unified security platform, Security Center, has been chosen by Brazil’s Hercílio Luz International Airport in Florianópolis (Floripa) to manage its physical security infrastructure and provide operational insights.

Managed by Zurich Airport Brazil, the airport underwent an extensive expansion project and reopened in October 2019 to accommodate up to eight million passengers a year.

“It was very important for us to choose a modern security system that could be totally integrated with the airport’s critical operations,” said Kleyton Mendes, executive manager, Zurich Airport Brazil, in a statement. “Genetec Security Center has allowed us to implement state-of-the-art technology, and integrate new hardware, artificial intelligence and analytics tools, while increasing our cybersecurity posture.”


The Genetec platform currently manages more than 500 cameras and 210 doors to administrative and critical areas of the terminal, such as boarding, arrivals and customs. Security Center is able to integrate a variety of operational and analytics tools such as the ability to identify and track unaccompanied luggage and generate alerts so that appropriate security measures can be taken.

Cameras, doors, automatic licence plate recognition units, intercoms, and other security devices can all be operated from the same interface. With Security Center, the team at Floripa has also been able to put in place a process to issue employee and contractor credentials and streamline access for employee parking using the Genetec AutoVu automatic licence plate recognition system.
