Preventing terminal closures effectively: Dallmeier presents semi-automated monitoring solution for the airport security area

The problem is familiar to airport operators: Unauthorised individuals enter the security area every day, for example when passengers go back to the airside from the land side after passing through customs or wander between “clean“ and “unclean“ zones inside the security area. The task of detecting and intercepting these “strays“ quickly and resolving the situation places enormous strain on personnel resources, and not infrequently is unsuccessful. The consequence: The threat of partial or even complete terminal closures with the associated enormous costs is real. The video security equipment manufacturer Dallmeier now presents a system based on 3D real-time location tracking, innovative video technology and mobile response team control which enables reliable and significantly faster incident investigation while reducing overall costs by as much as 50%.

To achieve this, the Dallmeier solution combines the patented Panomera® camera technology with 3D sensors and a software package that provides functions for detecting individuals, real-time positioning and automatic “wrong direction“ detection. Now if one or more people in the monitored area are moving in the wrong direction, they are detected by 3D real-time positioning, “captured“ as objects in the positioning system and can be tracked seamlessly from then on. The response teams automatically receive an alert, a portrait photo of the intruder and an overview image updated once a second on their mobile devices. In the bottom half of the screen, real-time information about the person’s position and direction of movement is displayed on the building map. The control centre has the same map view and image information of the events and is thus able to coordinate the activities of the response team. At the same time, the team members can switch between recordings on their mobile devices with simple swiping gestures, so they always know exactly where the individuals they are looking for are located. In this way, the persons they are searching for can be found immediately and critical situations can be resolved much faster.

Solution pays for itself very quickly
Besides considerably faster investigation of threat situations, the Dallmeier solution also offers financial advantages over conventional approaches: Whereas previously a dedicated 24/7 presence was needed for every security checkpoint or passageway throughout the airport, with the Dallmeier solution security for the corresponding areas can be automated. Since the control centre and response teams have a much better overview of the situation and cooperation is optimised, the teams only have to intervene when an alert is issued. This enables savings of up to 50% of total operating costs and the solution pays for itself very quickly.

About Dallmeier

Dallmeier: Turn images into assets.
With pioneering video technology from Germany.

In 1984 Dieter Dallmeier founded what is now Dallmeier electronic – not in the proverbial garage, but in a garden shed in Regensburg, Germany. Today, the company, which can justifiably call itself a hidden champion for video information technology "Made in Germany", has several hundred employees worldwide, more than 250 of them at the company headquarters in the centre of Regensburg alone.

Our customers: From commercial enterprises to World Cup stadiums
Dallmeier's camera, recording, software, and analysis solutions optimise security and processes for B2B end customers in a wide range of industries in over 60 countries. The focus is on users from the casino, smart city, airports, logistics, stadiums, and industrial sectors. But also, banks, critical infrastructure facilities as well as medium-sized companies from all sectors.

Low total cost of ownership "Made in Germany"
With pioneering innovations, Dallmeier has succeeded time and again in placing itself at the forefront of technology: From the world's first digital image storage system with motion analysis in 1992, the patented "multifocal sensor technology" Panomera® with its "Mountera®" mounting system, to the latest Domera® camera family, which allows up to 300 camera variants with only 18 components. These and many other innovations provide real, tangible customer benefits. And with a low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and a high Return on Investment (ROI) they can easily compete with systems produced and supplied from low-wage countries.

Cybersecurity, data protection and ethical responsibility through maximum vertical integration
With 100% "Made in Germany", we also guarantee our customers the highest standards in data protection, cybersecurity, and ethical responsibility. With high quality and short supply chains, we also ensure – almost incidentally – sustainability and environmental protection. From our prestigious headquarters in the centre of Regensburg, Dallmeier not only carries out its own research and development but also the complete manufacturing process – from component to product to solution.
