IndigoVision, a leading provider of complete IP Video security solutions, has launched enhanced support for the Gallagher access control system - formerly known as Cardax FT. IndigoVision's Gallagher Integration Module has been upgraded to support the latest version of Command Centre. The update allows live video from the IndigoVision system to be viewed in the Command Centre Premier v7 and Command Centre Classic v7 user interfaces.
A streamlined video integration user interface increases the space available to display live video, improving viewing capabilities for the operator. Camera identifier data has been simplified, for faster decision-making and straightforward configuration of the access control system.
IndigoVision's support for the Gallagher access control system includes two alarm integration modules: The OPC Alarms and Events integration module transfers alarms and events from the Gallagher system and into the IndigoVision system, while the Gallagher integration module is used to transfer events/alarms from the IndigoVision system into the Gallagher system.
Together with the enhanced support and compatibility with Command Centre interfaces, these alarm modules allow the creation of a tightly integrated access control and CCTV system.
The Gallagher integration module is currently one of 23 modules that allow seamless integration over the IP network with SMS4TM, IndigoVision's Security Management Software, and other third-party systems such as access control, intrusion detection, Building Management Systems (BMS), process control and Electronic Point of Sale (EPoS).
IndigoVision architecture is a truly open solution. Users have freedom to choose third-party ONVIF cameras and Windows-based storage solutions and a Software Developers Kit allows integrators to connect specialist systems. A key part of IndigoVision's open strategy is the development of integration with other security systems, increasingly important for efficient security management and incident response. With operators in large surveillance systems having to monitor hundreds of cameras, the use of alarms from other systems to highlight incidents and events is invaluable.
