Duos Technologies Group Inc (NASDAQ:DUOT) announced Wednesday that its operating subsidiary Duos Technologies Inc has won a major contract to provide control solutions for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office in Florida.
In a statement, the company said the contract was awarded through Biltmore Construction to provide Duos' Intelligent Correctional Automation System - or icas, for short.
The icas system provides all digital video, intercom, detention door control and access control and is integrated and interconnected to Duos singular command and control platform, centraco. The project is valued at about $945,000.
The system will be installed in the new Plantation Key Courthouse and Detention Center, currently under construction in Monroe County. This solution is based upon the current Duos system deployed at Monroe County's primary detention facility in Key West.
Duos said the integrated system provides superior monitoring and control, is cost-effective, and integrates all aspects of control into a single, intuitive user interface.
It was designed to replace legacy jail and correctional facility automation systems based upon older technologies while the new modular digital I/O systems will coordinate all aspects of controlled movement and situational awareness for the facility, the company said.
"Our team is very excited to continue to expand into the corrections market with our innovative solutions, which for the first time incorporates courthouse logistics into our project portfolio," Scott Carns, chief operating officer for the Duos Technologies subsidiary said in a statement.
"We also look forward to our continued relationship and long-standing service to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office."
Duos, based in Jacksonville, Florida, noted that implementation of the icas system is expected to begin later this year and be completed in 2021.
