Move towards a global view of all your sites and discover powerful ways to secure your organization

The Federation™ feature of Security Center allows you to monitor remote independent sites as if they were part of a single virtual system, improving your overall operations and level of security. The Federation™ feature is powered by an advanced architecture that synchronizes cameras, doors, intrusion panels, and all related events and alarms between sites in realtime and with no manual intervention. As a result, you no longer need to connect to each site individually or manually sync data between them, facilitating the management of multiple locations. Built to scale, the Federation™ feature allows you to connect to hundreds or thousands of remote access control and/or video devices.

Sample Applications

City-Wide Surveillance
Cities and municipalities can monitor systems spread throughout their geographic area. Public and private organizations can also share security data.

Centralized Monitoring Services
Central monitoring stations and providers can monitor thousands of remote customer accounts from a single platform.

Large Multi-Site Organizations
Organizations such as multi-nationals and multi-campus educational institutions can centralize their operations, especially during off-peak hours, leading to lower cost and greater efficiency.

Multi-Tenant Environments
Buildings with multiple tenants can retain their independence but share common infrastructure and monitoring costs.

Federation™ feature Architecture

Whether you are monitoring remote Omnicast video surveillance systems or Synergis access control systems, you have the power to monitor remote live and recorded video, control PTZ cameras, monitor alarms, track access control activity, control doors, run global reports, and more.
