March 26, 2024 – Franklin County has awarded Black Creek the project to upgrade the existing Security Control System at the Franklin County Jail located in Lyons, NY. Black Creek has been working with the 131-bed facility since 2015, when the County first implemented Black Creek’s physical security control system to replace an obsolete Simplex system. New touchscreen computers, digital video workstations, and servers utilizing the latest supported Windows® operating system will be provided for the locking door control system and the CCTV system. The system upgrade will utilize existing field devices (e.g., door locks, intercoms, cameras, etc.) in order to minimize costs.

In addition to replacing the existing Windows® 7 touchscreen control stations with the latest Black Creek Super Display® touchscreen control stations, utilizing the latest supported Windows® operating system and Black Creek’s latest touchscreen control software, Black Creek will also upgrade the existing Bosch Video Recording & Management System with a new administrative server and iSCSI storage array for camera video; the latest Bosch software will be provided. The existing intercom, paging, and duress systems will be reused as-is; Black Creek will maintain integration of these subsystems with the locking control system. To further minimize costs, existing network switches and other components will be reused to the extent possible; only those components deemed incompatibility with the new Windows® OS will be replaced.

The upgraded Super Display® system will improve the safety of staff and visitors with its enhanced functionality that the current control system does not provide. Each Super Display® Touchscreen station features up to three LCD monitors that display all the facility’s security controls, along with CCTV camera call-up and video display. An officer can easily select different camera viewpoints, control facility utilities, and more. The system upgrade will make security control easier and save the facility money by decreasing maintenance costs and increasing staff efficiency.
