The Cost of Datacenter Physical Security Blueprint

I have received a couple of e-mails about the Datacenter Physical Security Blueprint with comments that my blueprint is too movie-like, and that it is way too costly to implement.
So i did a little shopping around, and i requested budget prices for every element of my Blueprint (budget prices are usually higher then purchase prices, since they are a non-obligating quotes for budget estimation).
Here is the math. All prices are in US dollars

Security equipment

  • 9 CCTV cameras with infrared sensors - 130$ a piece = 1,170$
  • 8 Glass break sensors - 45$ a piece = 360$
  • 8 Motion Sensors - 30$ a piece = 240$
  • 4 KeyCard readers (with combined electronic/mechanical lock and open/closed status sensor) - 150$ a piece = 600$
  • 2 KeyCard readers with Keypad (with combined electronic/mechanical lock and open/closed status sensor) - 160$ a peice = 320$
  • 1 Biometric reader = 700$
  • 1 Alarm controller = 600$
  • 1 Access/Keycard reader controller = 400$
  • 1 CCTV recorder = 4,000$
  • 2 CCTV monitors (one on reception and one in SysMonitoring) - 500$ a piece = 1,000$
  • Cabling and infrastructure = 1,000$
-------------------------------------------------------
  • Security equipment Total = 10390$
Dead man door

Option 1 - A full turnkey solution, with internal scale for person measurement and bulletproof doors with glass windows capable of stopping 7.62 caliber ammo (Think AK47) = 12,000$

Option 2 - A integrator made solution, with same capabilities as Option 1 but takes more space = 8,000$

-------------------------------------------------------
  • Grand Total = From 18390$ to 22,390$
Last time i checked, that was the price of a Ford Fusion (US vehicle) or a Honda Civic (European vehicle).
