Johnson Controls Announces P2000 Security Management System Upgrade
Responding to customer feedback for additional system flexibility, Johnson Controls recently announced the release of P2000 Security Management System v3.10.
In this latest upgrade of the P2000 security management system, the software builds upon the existing system and provides new Internet Protocol (IP) reader/controller integrations, as well as digital video integrations.
The P2000 system now integrates with the Johnson Controls S321-IP controller and two new IP reader/controllers, Johnson Controls PowerNet by ISONAS and HID Edge. The two latter devices are Power over Ethernet (PoE) compliant, enabling a single ethernet cable to power the device and share data between the device and the system. Another P2000 system innovation is its integration with Fujitsu PalmSecure.
The Fujitsu Palm-Secure scanner takes advantage of vain patterns that are unique to individuals. It gives customers a touch less, non-invasive bio-identity with a high level of accuracy.
The system also integrates with additional DVR systems, including Milestone, Genetec, Nextiva, and Panasonic products. The intuitive graphical user interface includes all standard features of the P2000 system and allows authorized users to manage recording and PTZ functions of many cameras from a single workstation.
“As a leader in systems integration, we recognized a need in our market for increased flexibility and the ability to leverage IP technologies. The enhanced features of the P2000 Security Management System meet this need,” said Lisa Roy, vice president of security and fire safety, North America, Johnson Controls. “The new features and enhancements to the system provide our customers with more options when integrating security into their buildings.”
The P2000 Security Management System also provides seamless integration into Johnson Controls Metasys building management system. This enables building system operators to access security features of the P2000 from the Metasys user interface. Users can view alarms and messages, send access control commands and interlock events.
