This follows the launch of new Security Center plugins for Software House C•CURE 9000 access control, Barco CMS video wall, Southwest MicroPoint perimeter detection devices and DSC PowerSeries intrusion panels.
Available now for download to all Security Center 5.2 customers and to those with an active software maintenance agreement (SMA), this service release provides customers access to new software updates and feature options, with support for many edge devices on the market.
Security Center 5.2 SR4 provides support for a number of new encoders, including the Axis M7016 and P7216, offering analogue customers 16-channel encoder options.

The number of Security Center technology partners also grows with the addition of new and updated third party plugins. The recently updated Software House C•CURE 9000 access control plugin for Security Center provides bidirectional integration between the two systems, enabling operators to monitor C•CURE alarms, and other information within Security Center, and view access control events with their associated video as well as video Security Center video from the C•CURE workstations. A new Barco CMS plugin provides management of Barco video walls from Security Center, for operators to display and remotely control tile layouts and cameras on video walls through drag-and-drop.
Integration with Southwest Microwave INTREPID MicroPoint Cable and MicroPoint II perimeter fence detection systems offers customers an interface enabling operators to receive alarms from perimeter fences and monitor CCTV associated with events from Security Center. Security Center also adds support for a new intrusion detection partner, the PowerSeries 1864 intrusion panel from DSC.
