Gallagher access control & intruder alarm systems and PowerFence™ perimeter security systems

Product Profile


Cardax FT is a comprehensive Microsoft® Windows® based security system.  It integrates access control and alarms management, intruder alarm monitoring, remote digital imaging, intercom, and PhotoID badging.  The system stores information about cardholders, the site, and system activity.  It can be integrated with other systems for both security requirements (i.e. DVR and CCTV) and facilities management (including HR and ERP).  Cardax FT is manufactured and marketed by Gallagher Security Management Systems, a division of the Gallagher Group Ltd.
