Samsung Jászfényszaru

In 1990, Samsung Electronics built a new factory in the Hungarian city of Jászfényszaru. Little over ten years later this plant was the setting for the production of over ten million televisions. The plant will also play a major part in the production of LED televisions. The production of these state-of-the-art devices started at the Hungarian plant early in 2010.

Pre-existing situation

The Jászfényszaru plant has always placed a special emphasis on safety and security in and around the site. Following new security requirements set out by the World Customs Organisation, however, the plant’s security management decided to further upgrade the level of security. The building required an updated intrusion detection system and an expansion of the video surveillance system, while a perimetric protection system was wanted for the external site. With these requirements set out, Samsung’s security team turned to AZUR AVIS Hungary Ltd., a local security installer of UTC Fire & Security, to complete the job.

UTC Fire & Security's solution

The level of security inside the Samsung Jászfényszaru plant has significantly increased by equipping it with both an intrusion detection and video surveillance system. The intrusion detection system consists of a mix of various types of detectors placed throughout the facility. These detectors reach a high level of security by combining multiple techniques among which movement and heat detection. On certain strategically chosen points throughout the facility, cameras are placed, enabling security personnel to monitor the grounds 24/7. The site grounds have been secured using a perimetric detection system. This system consists of three major elements; fence protection, microwave detection and infrared detection. Combining these three elements has optimised the security perimeter of the Jászfényszaru factory. Both the indoor intrusion system and the outdoor perimetric detection system are managed by the ATS Master platform. With this system in place, the new requirements of the World Customs Organisation were easily met.
