Farm case study

Leading consultants have specified OPTEX's REDSCAN laser detector as their choice for securing medical marijuana Grow Op facilities.

U.S. retail cannabis sales will rise more than five-fold over the next five years, from an estimated $2.2-$2.6 billion in 2014 to $7.4-8.2 billion in 2018, according to new financial data released in the 2014 edition of the Marijuana Business Factbook.

Because of this growth, local governments are setting strict regulations including detailed security specifications to prevent theft or diversion of medical marijuana at “Grow Op” facilities. In addition, security specifications outline how companies communicate, assist and alert local law enforcement of unlawful activities. Part of this specification outline focuses on perimeter intrusion and surveillance systems.

To meet perimeter intrusion and surveillance system requirements, leading consultants have specified OPTEX’s REDSCAN Laser Detectors as their choice for securing medical marijuana Grow Op facilities. With large deployments across North America, REDSCAN has proven to be highly effective due to it’s flexible motion detection capabilities, IP integration into leading Video Management Software (VMS) and its ability to be deployed across multiple perimeter applications utilizing indoor and outdoor functions. REDSCAN’s state-of-the-art motion detection technology meets state-by-state security specifications and is both UL and FDA approved.

REDSCAN can detect an object's size, speed and distance with precision accuracy. It provides a number of flexible detection applications within the Grow Op's perimeter. It can be mounted horizontally to actively detect and track objects or vertically mounted to create invisible laser walls triggering cameras to preset positions.

Because all remotely monitored security systems rely on a motion trigger, REDSCAN works seamlessly with surveillance cameras preventing and/or recording theft and diversion of medical marijuana. Because Redscan is integrated with all leading video management software, you now have highly effective IP intrusion, surveillance and security event management options.
