Siemens reports high end security integrator Secom Technical Services has become the first Australian partner for it’s smart infrastructure building security portfolio, Siveillance.

Secom Technical Services offers engineering design, installation and maintenance of access control, CCTV systems and Type 1A solutions and the partnership will focus on offering open, modular, and fully scalable solutions for critical infrastructure, including defence facilities, correctional institutions, government department and agency buildings. The Siveillance portfolio is already in use across key sites in Australia, including within the ports, healthcare, correctional, and premium office vertical markets.

Solutions encompass the entire Siemens Smart Infrastructure security portfolio, Siveillance Suite, which includes integrated access control technology, IP video management software and an incident management workflow engine specifically designed to support security management at critical infrastructure sites. Siveillance Control Pro not only ties together all the sub-systems currently used to protect and manage a site, but also allows security policies and procedures to be integrated using workflows and automated actions.

Jeff Connolly, CEO of Siemens Australia, said that there has never been a more important time for mid to large sized industrial customers to assess how they manage risk, while reducing operational costs.

“Critical infrastructure facilities are no longer passive assets – more and more, they are digitally connected,” Connolly said. “This has changed the building security landscape, and we are seeing greater demand for flexibility, as well as open, scalable security architecture that reflects the rapidly changing needs of the market.

“With a long history of providing security solutions to government departments, Secom’s experience in public sector security is second-to-none. We welcome Secom as a solution partner and look forward to focusing together on the critical infrastructure market which requires robust security technology in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.”

Chris Anlezark, director at Secom Technical Services said the team was excited to partner with Siemens.

“Secom is an agile and innovative company reputed for providing solutions that match rapidly evolving market requirements and we’re pleased to partner with a like-mind company,” Anlezark said. “The combination of our local knowledge and expertise in this space and Siemens’ technological prowess and breadth of solutions is a win-win for customers and the market.”
