Physical Security

Genetec, ASSA ABLOY partner

Genetec , the Canadian IP security product company, has entered into a strategic partnership with ASSA ABLOY , the door product manufacturer.

Genetec and ASSA ABLOY will offer streamlined integration between Genetec’s SMC (Synergis Master Controller ), an intelligent IP door controller that connects to door modules and electronic locks, and the latest WiFi and PoE (Power over Ethernet) electronic locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and SARGENT .

Genetec says that its customers will have more options when designing their physical security system, and will be able to use Synergis to configure, synchronise and monitor ASSA ABLOY locks, with their standard IP-based door controllers. When Synergis and ASSA ABLOY’s electronic locks are deployed alongside Genetec’s video surveillance products, users can view WiFi and PoE lock events and activities linked with live or recorded video.

Jimmy Palatsoukas, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at Genetec, says: “Because our Synergis access control solution is an open platform, we are able to further expand our ecosystem of access control partners to give our customers additional options such as ASSA ABLOY’s IP-enabled electronic locks. The integration will allow our customers to easily extend their existing access control infrastructure into hard-to-reach or inaccessible locations through WiFi locks that do not require any wiring, as well as leverage their existing network cabling with PoE locks to simplifying installation and reduce costs.”

And Martin Huddart, Vice President of Electronic Technologies for ASSA ABLOY Americas, says: “We are pleased to offer Genetec customers a smart solution for expanding their Synergis systems at a much lower cost than traditional hardwired components. The integration of ASSA ABLOY IP-enabled locks with the Genetec Synergis platform allows facilities to leverage their IT infrastructure to bring electronic access control deeper into the building.”
