Qognify and Johnson Controls integrate VMS and Kantech EntraPass

May 30, 2023  By  SP&T Staff

Qognify, part of Hexagon, and Johnson Controls Security Products recently announced an integration between their products Qognify VMS and Kantech EntraPass.

According to the companies, the integration of the software products enables users to better understand situations based on the synchronization of event and video data, allowing a  targeted response to event-based scenarios.

For instance, “forced door,” “door held open” and “clearance” alarms from EntraPass can be displayed as events within Qognify VMS and synchronized to the associated video recording. These same types of system events can be visualized on maps and floor plans to enable situational understanding as well as to initiate door actions such as “unlock” or “lock” from the VMS map view.

“Qognify has a large install base of video platforms where the JCI Kantech EntraPass is part of the overall security eco-system,” said Jeremy Howard, vice-president, physical security sales, Americas, Qognify, in a company statement. “The integration turns Qognify VMS into a single pane of glass for video and EntraPass access control, allowing users to visualize and respond to common events in one single UI – without the need to implement a complex and costly PSIM solution. This allows organizations that manage for example retail stores or office buildings to improve the response to any physical security threat while keeping the total costs for their security systems reasonably low.”
