In order to maintain the security of visitors, the General Secretariat of the Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine proceeded to establish a sophisticated control security system; through following organized and accurate mechanisms, benefiting from the technological development that the world witnessed in the field of electronics and software.
The project comes as a result of the security challenges facing the holy cities, and for the control of the entrances to the holy city, especially after the great expansion of the holy shrine's construction projects.
The Communications' Division of the Al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine initiated under the direct supervision of the department of engineering projects the establishment of this important and vital project, which comes in a series of projects that fall within the expansion project of the holy shrine of Abu Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him).
The Engineer Dea' Majeed Al-Sa'egh, head of engineering projects in Al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine explained to the Al-Kafeel Network:
"The project consists of many systems, first is the giant screen system of IFACE type with the German high precision, associated with monitoring devices (Workstation), with which they can review images and analyse them, covering a total area of 24 m2.
While the second is the giant Storage system with a capacity of (2.2 beta bytes) which is equivalent to (2,200 terabytes), from the American company (IBM) specialized in servers (storage and archiving). This system is linked to the Electronic archiving system that will save the data, and in the case of any defect, damage or fire in it, there is an emergency system of Recovery supporting the system storage that can also protect the main data system. In addition to an Australian Video analysis system, and the face detection system fitted with a warning alarm.
Finally the System of administration cameras is special and distinct system that is dedicated to personnel working on the management systems in the security control room."
Noting: "In fact, these cameras are of high accuracy, resistant to the different weather conditions and can reach far distances. They are related to sensors that examine under the wheels, in case of any sticking bombs or explosives, and it can also be connected to the gates to lock them automatically when the alarm is triggered, having the feature of (Jack Hill System) that triggers the alarm in case of damage to a specific camera, power outage, or in the case of a forced destruction.
