Having created an integration between their products Gallagher Command Centre and SeeTec Cayuga, Gallagher Security, leading manufacturer of intruder alarm and command center solutions, and SeeTec, pioneer in video management software, announce a technology partnership. The connection of both software products enables customers to evaluate situations based on a synopsis of event and video data, allowing a faster and more targeted response to critical incidents. Thus, SeeTec Cayuga can receive and display events from Gallagher Systems, for instance “access granted” or “door opened”. In return, live and archive videos from cameras operated with SeeTec Cayuga can be displayed in Gallagher Command Centre, including the possibility to control PTZ cameras. Integrated security solutions Since there is a clear trend of applications in security ecosystems growing together more and more, the technology partnership is a further important step towards providing integrated security solutions. Kaj Svenningson, VP Business Development at SeeTec, is happy about this new level of cooperation, stating “Especially in Middle East and Asia we see rapidly growing project sizes. Installations with thousands of cameras have become the new standard, and especially those projects require an overall view, which combines information from various subsystems.” Rob Hughes, Product Manager - Custom Solutions at Gallagher, adds: " The integration of SeeTec increases operational efficiency by ensuring Command Centre operators have the critical information they require for incident management readily available within the one system."
Morse Watchmans has announced the release of Gallagher’s Command Centre Access Control System integration module for its flagship KeyWatcher® Touch system. The new module enables users to map Command Centre access groups with KeyWatcher Touch profiles, allowing new users to be added to the system from Gallagher’s Command Centre. New business and security advantages “KeyWatcher’s open architecture platform provides new business and security advantages based on enhanced functionality and centralised control,” said Fernando Pires, VP of Sales and Marketing, Morse Watchmans. “With our new module integrating Gallagher’s Command Centre and KeyWatcher Touch, time-consuming tasks are effectively and reliably automated across the enterprise.” Alarms and events Among other efficiency benefits provided by the integration is the ability for users in the Command Centre to be assigned to a specific KeyWatcher Touch access group. This automatically adds both the user and associated profile to sites for access to specified keys. As well, alarms and events from the KeyWatcher Touch system can be configured and sent to the Command Centre for monitoring. “This integrated solution eliminates duplication and provides the end user with a more secure environment,” said Rob Hughes, Security Consultant at Gallagher Security.
