|GARDiS features an intuitive interface, designed and built directly around the needs of users and operators
Integrated security manufacturer TDSi will be giving a sneak preview of its new forthcoming GARDiS software on stand F1200 at this year’s IFSEC International. TDSi will also be demonstrating how its systems can integrate with those of other key manufacturers including Milestone, ASSA ABLOY, Texecom and SimonsVoss at show, which runs from 21st to 23rd June at the ExCel London Exhibition Centre.
Tina Baker, Software Project Manager at TDSi commented, “We are excited to be giving the first details of our brand new GARDiS software solution at this year’s IFSEC International. To offer even greater flexibility and suitability to modern applications, GARDiS is a web-based application. One software install is all that is required to provide complete access control security for your business or organisation’s needs.”
Tina continued, “The new product offers all the benefits of a highly secure web-based application – it is easily adaptable for an increased workload, provides easier maintenance and installation, is more secure and is accessible from anywhere on any device. GARDiS also features a simple-to-use and intuitive interface, that we have designed and built directly around the needs of users and operators.”
GARDiS has also taken into account upcoming regulation standards requirements, as Tina added, “The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) has adopted ONVIF Profile A and C as the de-facto new international standard for access control. This ushers in the era of open platforms for access control, and accordingly GARDiS has been designed as an ONVIF Profile A and C compliant platform.”
Software and systems integration are key topics on the TDSi stand this year
Software and systems integration are key topics on the TDSi stand this year. The company recently launched its plugin for Milestone’s XProtect Video Management Software (VMS) using the XProtect Access add-on. This integrates directly with TDSi’s EXgarde Access Management and Integrated Security Systems Management software.
EXgarde also offers security operators a number of additional integration options with specialist systems from other manufacturers. Full integration with ASSA ABLOY’s KS100 server cabinet wireless electronic lock for example, allows the physical security of servers to be included in the wider remit of protection across one or a number of secure sites.
TDSi’s EXgarde can control and work with a number of complementary security systems such as Texecom’s alarm control panels, ASSA ABLOY's Aperio wireless locks, SimonsVoss’ SmartIntego wireless door locks, and Microsoft Active Directory (to ensure core business systems can interact, compare and record security data as well).
Range of security solutions
Also on display on the stand this year will be TDSi’s SOLOgarde, MICROgarde and EXcel controllers, as well as the company’s enterprise solutions, along with the integration possibilities between its own software products, including EXgarde security management and VUgarde CCTV VMS.
The solutions being featured will be of interest to anyone who works with or uses integrated security, as Tina added, “We have an impressive array of the latest security technology on stand F1200, so if you are attending IFSEC International why not visit us to discuss all your security needs and the potential solutions.”
