Genetec introduces latest version of Synergis IP access control solution

Genetec has announced the release of the latest version of Synergis, its IP access control solution. The solution now broadens its access control capabilities with the release of features such as the Synergis Software Development Kit (SDK) for third-party system integrations such as human resource management systems (HRMS), time and attendance systems, fire and intrusion detection panels.

Additionally, Synergis now offers support for badge design, custom
report design, elevator control and floor tracking, incident reports,
and a host of other features.

“Synergis is an enterprise-class IP access control solution designed
with an innovative and unique architecture that revolutionizes how
organizations secure their facilities,” says Jimmy Palatsoukas, product manager at Genetec.

Synergis’ Unified Security Interface seamlessly
integrates access control, video surveillance, visitor management,
badging, reporting, and more. It currently supports a wide
variety of hardware door controllers, including one-reader IP
controllers, two-reader IP controllers, as well as traditional RS485
based controllers and interface modules.

With the release of this
latest version, Synergis further expands its existing integration,
taking IP access control to the next level, by supporting the VertXTM
and EdgeTM product lines from HID Global. With the HID EdgeReader, a
power-over-Ethernet (PoE) enabled device, Genetec is able to provide IP
connectivity to the door through a single CAT-5 cable.

This allows
users to leverage the benefits of both IP and PoE technology, reduce
installation costs and increase operational efficiency.
