GENETEC’S Synergis IX meets the unique hybrid intrusion and access control needs of the ANZ market, according to director, strategic partnerships, Philippe Ouimette.

“The ANZ market has a unique and modern perspective on access control and intrusion monitoring, notably that the hardware for these systems are one and the same,” said Ouimette. “Genetec addresses this directly with Synergis IX, a regionally-specific hardware solution which will meet market requirements.”

“Our open-platform solution has been welcomed by our local partner network, as it allows them to combine different access control components to suit customers’ needs rather than locking users into a proprietary system.”

According to Ouimette, an organisation’s physical security systems management can and should go well beyond integration of disparate solutions.

“With Genetec, organisations have the option to unify management of Synergis IX into our Security Center platform and natively leverage other core capabilities such as our award-winning video management system, license plate recognition, intercom systems management and analytics,” he said.

“Having all security related information and management controls unified in one open platform simplifies the management of physical security solutions, helping organisations make sure operations are running smoothly and that people, facilities and data are safe.”

Synergis IX provides a gateway to unified security through the Genetec Security Center platform, enabling customers to manage all of their security systems on a single interface and comprises a new line of hardware that combine access control and intrusion monitoring.

Synergis IX devices are designed to work with the Genetec Security Center platform to unify access control and intrusion functions with video surveillance, communications and more. By adopting a line of hardware combining access control and intrusion devices in a single platform, customers can significantly reduce installation time and total cost of ownership, while achieving operational efficiencies and gaining greater insight into their security environment.

Featuring a broad range of hybrid controllers, modules, readers, and keypads, Synergis IX enables users to control and monitor a scalable number of intrusion areas, doors, cardholders, and other field devices regardless of geographical location. With digital certificate support, claims-based authentication, and end-to-end encrypted communications, security throughout every layer of the architecture is ensured.
