Aiphone, a manufacturer of intercom and entry security products, has announced Johnson Controls’ approval of Aiphone IX Series video intercom integration with its latest Software House C•CURE 9000 access control and event management platform. Adding the integration package allows all IX Series video intercom components to be used within the Software House C•CURE 9000 platform. IX Series door intercom events can create changes on a C•CURE 9000 visual site map and trigger third-party devices. All events and state changes are recorded in C•CURE’s journal to provide an audit trail of intercom and door activity. Customisable network-driven integration The software integration package includes a complete set of customisable icons. Adding an icon to any pre-configured C•CURE system map allows real-time status updates. Updates can indicate if the IX Series device is on or offline, or if a call has been placed or answered as well as show the level of placed calls, triggered events, and perform system health checks. Since the IP-based IX Series is network driven, there is no need for extra wiring to achieve integration. Once the software is loaded, the C•CURE 9000 system will automatically locate IX Series equipment. End users can customise the integration to meet their specific needs. Improved security management “We’ve responded to our many C•CURE 9000 customers who have requested this integration,” said Paul Hefty, technical support and sales engineer II for Aiphone. “Combining C•CURE 9000 access control and event management with the Aiphone IX Series, delivers improved overall security management.” “This new partnership aligns with Johnson Controls’ vision to add mission-critical solutions to our portfolio of integrations through our Connected Partner Program,” said Scott McNulty, senior product manager at Tyco Safety Products, Johnson Controls. “The program brings together industry-leading solutions, providing a platform for partners to promote and market their value-added, third-party solutions throughout Johnson Controls’ brands on a global scale.”
Software House and Shooter Detection Systems integrate to provide critical security against the active shooter Tyco Security Products announces that Software House C•CURE 9000, the access-control powerhouse, now integrates with Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System by Shooter Detection Systems, the world leader in gunshot detection technology. The nation’s top 500 enterprise security executives surveyed named the Active Shooter as this year’s top security threat facing their enterprise. This highly anticipated integration complements Tyco Security Product’s offerings with an industry-leading solution to accurately detect gunshots and provide precise location information to first responders and security professionals within a second of the first shot, without the need for human interpretation. Instant shot location In an active shooter event where every second counts, the Guardian Indoor Active Shooter Detection System combines an acoustic gunshot identification software with infrared camera gunfire flash detection. When combined with powerful C•CURE 9000 event management and access monitoring features, the system provides the ability for instant shot location information, lock down procedures, live and recorded video from cameras in the incident related areas, and provides immediate notification to first responders through C•CURE 9000’s event action and integrated notification platforms while alerting monitoring facilities around the globe. “We are pleased to be able to add this mission critical solution to the portfolio of integrations coming through Tyco Security Product’s Connected Partner Program. This integration fully aligns with our vision to offer our customers best-in-class technologies in security products,” stated Scott McNulty, Senior Product Manager, TSP Connected Partner Program. Reduction of human error margin “SDS is proud to add C•CURE 9000 to our growing library of technology integrations,” said Shooter Detection Systems’ CEO Christian Connors. “By combining our indoor gunshot detection system with access control, customers can potentially manage where the shooter can move by locking down a lobby, hallway, or other access point, and use the same logic to safely evacuate employees away from the shooter.” The powerful combination of C•CURE 9000 and Guardian gunshot detection reduces the margins of human error, ensuring that there are no costly false alerts while enhancing the overall security of any school, business or public venue building.
