Security & Surveillance

Tyto Athene offers a wide range of security and surveillance infrastructure solutions. As a turnkey systems integrator, we design, install, and integrate public security and safety systems that use Internet Protocol (IP), Internet of Things (IoT) or Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV).

Our security expertise extends to all disciplines represented in these security solutions, including the design and installation of underlying network infrastructure, configuration and testing of electronic security system devices (cameras and access control), and components (cable and conduit).

Tyto specializes in quick-reaction responses to urgent/emergent and unique requirements for Enterprise Security Services (ESS). Our full-service enterprise of properly trained and cleared personnel, comprehensive technical facilities, and capital resources stand ready to provide turnkey ESS solutions to customers anywhere around the globe.

Over the course of our long history, we have installed hundreds of ESS around the world. These systems have included perimeter hardened barriers, exterior/interior Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), exterior/interior CCTV surveillance systems, exterior/interior Perimeter Access Control Systems (PACS), radar and thermal imaging systems, ID badging systems, Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12) Personal Identity Verification (PIV), and Common Access Card (CAC) Next Generations (NG) smart card readers, optical turnstiles, video wall displays, and centralized command and control of operational center systems.

Tyto Athene provides Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) supporting HSPD-12 and enterprise-class video surveillance solutions for clients worldwide. We also design true enterprise-class security solutions for clients using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products supporting HSPD-12.

Tyto Athene provides Internet of Things (IoT) solutions to modernize and enhance situational awareness. Our IoT solutions monitor the conditions of infrastructure using environmental and electrical sensors to collect real time data, which is viewed through a centralized, Common Operational Portal (COP). Improved situation awareness of critical infrastructure helps our clients manage expenses more effectively and prevent catastrophic service outages.

Security and Surveillance Capability Case Study:


Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA)

DC_METRO Tyto Athene


WMATA was looking to install a complete network infrastructure at each of their Metrorail stations to support a complex digital video camera network. Requirements included all materials, equipment, support, warranty repair, identification, installation, and configuration of electronic security devices for approximately 130 locations.

How we advised

Tyto Athene was chosen because of our experience and track record with similar projects. Installation of the system was designed with little disruption to WMATA service – this included installation of IP Digital Video Surveillance Systems, cable/conduit, and cameras at each station with dedicated engineering staff to configure and test all cameras and cable.


WMATA continues to enlist our team with new projects that includes installing IP cameras, additional security features at the WMATA Security Operation Command Center (SOCC) and collaborating on the Silver Line project, which includes kiosk video work.
