Genetec Demonstrates WiFi and Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Locks in Latest Version of Synergis Master Controller (SMC) at ASIS 2013 Conference

Genetec™, a global leader in unified IP security systems and 2013 Access Control Product of the Year winner in the UK, will demonstrate new features of its upcoming Synergis Master Controller (SMC) v.2.1 release for the first time at ASIS 2013 (Booth # 1914).

Montreal, septiembre 17, 2013 - Genetec™, a global leader in unified IP security systems and 2013 Access Control Product of the Year, winner in the UK, will demonstrate new features of its upcoming Synergis Master Controller (SMC) v.2.1 release for the first time at ASIS 2013 (Booth # 1914). The SMC, a key component of the Genetec Synergis IP access control system, is an intelligent door controller designed to secure the facilities of any organization, while leveraging well-known third party access control hardware.

Expected to be available in Q4 2013, SMC v.2.1 will allow Genetec customers to easily extend their Synergis system to work with ASSA ABLOY, SARGENT and Corbin Russwin WiFi and PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) locks for easier access control deployment into hard-to-reach or inaccessible locations at a reduced cost. Further, the SMC offers a clear migration path for existing SARGENT and Corbin Russwin IP lock users looking to adopt a unified IP access control and IP video surveillance solution.

Through a recently announced strategic partnership with ASSA ABLOY, and strong relationships with HID Global and Mercury Security, Genetec customers can benefit from the open architecture that Synergis offers, and choose from a growing array of door control modules, input/output modules, and IP locks.

"As part of our vision to address the longstanding market demand for open solutions and freedom of choice, Synergis Master Controller v.2.1 represents another step in providing customers with a growing number of options. We've now expanded our partner ecosystem to include ASSA ABLOY and electronic IP lock support," says Jimmy Palatsoukas, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at Genetec.
