AMAG Technology, an access control, IP video and intrusion detection (IDS) solution provider, announces the release of SymmetryWEB. SymmetryWEB is client software that allows an unlimited number of users to remotely access a Symmetry Security Management System via a web interface to manage security.
“It’s a natural progression to move AMAG’s Symmetry Security Management System (SMS) to a web client to more easily manage a facility’s security,” said AMAG Technology, Product Manager, Steve Amos. “SymmetryWEB offers end users the flexibility to manage card holders and visitors remotely while still maintaining tight security for their buildings, employees and assets.”
The SymmetryWEB client interface is designed to enable remote card holder and credential management for the Symmetry SMS. Security and building personnel can set up new card holders and assign access rights for readers and doors to them. An intuitive, user friendly interface displays the applications, card holders and devices available to the user according to their privileges. The navigation is simple and easy to follow, enabling users to view a complete profile of card holder information, including all card holder options, access assignments and personal information.
The SymmetryWEB client also supports Symmetry Visitor Management. Security personnel or authorised users can quickly and efficiently register and manage visitors. This convenient feature simplifies the visitor registration process and allows authorised users to pre-register guests at a moment’s notice from their computer or mobile device.
SymmetryWEB provides many benefits:
- No need to install software on local PC
