The manufacturers Vanderbilt and Genetec Inc announced an integration partnership. This sees the integration of Vanderbilt SPC intrusion panels with Genetec Security Center. This integration will offer central monitoring, control, and reporting of information and events from the SPC intrusion product inside Security Center, Genetec’s platform. The integration allows for several features such as synchronisation, monitoring, and reporting on activities related to SPC.
John O’Donnell, Product Manager at Vanderbilt, says: “The Vanderbilt SPC system provides a powerful integration platform and with the integration to Genetec Security Center it will provide our mutual customers with a unified platform for their security and video needs.”
For instance, users can monitor SPC panel state changes in real-time using the Monitoring and Maps task in Security Desk. They can also create event-to-actions for events that are sent from the SPC detection unit, or silence alarms on intrusion detection areas in Security Desk using the intrusion detection area widget. Reports on activities related to SPC intrusion detection areas can also be generated. The Genetec extension will allow support for the SPC 4000, 5000 and 6 000 series systems. This is available from Genetec on systems running Security Center version 5.6SR1 and later.
Louis-Rene Bergeron, Commercial Lead for External systems integration at Genetec, says: “As a growing number of our enterprise, government, retail, transit and education end-users unify their access control systems with their video management systems, intrusion monitoring and detection is a critical operational necessity. Vanderbilt technology is a valuable add into our ecosystem of technology partners.”
