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

Security Center Federation facilitates centralized monitoring, reporting, and alarm management across multiple sites or organizations, while streamlining operations during off-peak hours.

Federation is powered by a highly scalable architecture that synchronizes cameras, doors, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR) units, intrusion panels, and all related events, alarms, and ALPR hits between sites. With real-time and automated synchronization of information, you can now move beyond connecting to each site individually or manually synching of data between sites, both time consuming activities.

Built to scale, Federation allows you to connect to hundreds or thousands of remote access control, video and ALPR sites.

Sample Applications

Citywide Surveillance
Cities and municipalities can monitor systems spread throughout their geographic area. Public and private organizations are also able to share security data and ALPR reads and hits, increasing the reach of investigations.

Centralized Monitoring Services
Central monitoring stations and providers can monitor thousands of remote customer accounts from a single platform regardless of the type of customer system (video, access control, or ALPR).

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 Architecture

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