Please respond only after reading in entirety & understanding the needs.
We are responding to a request for a facilities integrated security system & looking for a evangelist technical expert/consultant(s) for help. Need is to help identify the HW, possible software to accomplish this task.
The HW should be openly available (PLC use for I/O digital, analog & use of embedded, mobile computers for video/audio & human interface is encouraged) & SW should be running on MS Windows & be preferably a mobile friendly MVC web application, with full source code accessible to us. The DB should be MS SQL Server preferably. We have several SW pieces done already, but a lot needs to be done. Phase 1 will be the HW evaluation & identification. The full spec will be provided to short listed candidates & a resubmission of proposal will be exercised, if desired by you. The main items are Central access control, vehicle entry, personnel entry & egress, intercom, intrusion detection, video analytics/assessment, paging etc.. There will be no internet access use for paging system. Use Central server with redundancy & cyber security support for anything that uses VPN or internet.
The system should meet typical standards of US applications for high tech industrial & enterprise use for multi facilities that are scattered over a large geographical area.
The use case is for an oil & gas sector where fire & gases hazards may also be present. Intent is to develop a central integrated system with a single point of data & a single point of data entry.
Please ask any questions as this will be an evolution based state of the art system design. We do not have any budgetary constraints defined at the moment.
Please share some relevant samples with your response. Please submit any questions with your response to cut any delays. Any work done under this job will be provided to us with no strings attached & will become our property.
We expect your response within a few days of award.
