Connected Cities: Integrated Solutions for Today’s Government Facilities

Norma Schiller by Norma Schiller | 11.16.2015

In the heart of California’s Central Valley, Turlock is the second largest city in Stanislaus County. With nearly 70,000 residents, the city offers relaxed rural living with convenient access to some of California’s most popular tourist destinations in and around its capitol.


When an alarm comes in to the new 911 center, cameras offer immediate confirmation and details so officers know what’s happening before they respond.

As the City of Turlock grows, adding a brand new Public Safety building and transit center and expanding its waste water treatment facilities, Honeywell helps manage the growing infrastructure with Honeywell’s sustainable access control and surveillance system. The city now has a fully integrated security system which connects all buildings together on a single shared database.

Microbiz Security Co. installed the system based on Honeywell’s Pro-Watch security management system. It controls almost 100 proximity readers and manages badging for multiple city departments, multiple buildings and parking lots in one shared database. Seamlessly integrated with a VISTA security system and video surveillance, it can be managed from a single command at the 911 call center. To find out more about this unique installation, take a few minutes to read the case study.
