Genetec's IP access control solution integrates several security functions into one simple interface

Product Profile

Genetec Synergis™ is an enterprise-class IP access control solution designed with end-to-end IP connectivity, from access control reader to client workstation.

A few of Synergis' unique benefits:

Unified security interface - Synergis provides seamless integration with Genetec's Omnicast™ IP video surveillance solution and other security functions.  This improves operational efficiency by reducing the number of security applications and simplifying day-to-day operator activities.

IP at the door - Synergis offers end-to-end IP connectivity by providing access control right to the door through its integration of IP edge readers.  This provides benefits such as real-time event monitoring and a more manageable access control footprint.

Hardware freedom - Synergis' open architecture provides the freedom to choose from a variety of third-party door controllers and input/output modules.  End users can also leverage their existing IP infrastructure while limiting the amount of wiring required for new hardware installations.

Unsurpassed scalability - Synergis sets a new standard in access control with the capability of managing systems of any size, from one to one million access points, all over an IP network.  Systems can grow one door at a time, enabling Synergis to match any organization's security requirements.

With innovative features such as badge design, custom card formats, web tools and advanced alarm management, Synergis is being used by organizations within the transportation, education, retail and gaming industries.
