Tridium Previews Latest Release of Niagara Enterprise Security Solution
Tridium is showcased the upcoming version of its Niagara Enterprise Security, Release 2.2 with new Photo ID and Threat Management capabilities as well as expanded Video Surveillance enhancements at ASIS.
A new set of powerful Photo ID capabilities in Niagara Enterprise Security Release 2.2 provides users with support for photo ID capture and badge printing through the integration of HID Asure ID 7 Photo ID management software. The addition of the Threat Management feature provides users with the ability to address life threatening situations by providing sophisticated cardholder access management and door lockdown based on the current Active Threat Levels. These Threat Levels are arranged on a level of priority, such that when operating at any specific threat level, all levels below are currently inactive and all levels above are active.
The expanded Video Surveillance feature enhances the system's ability with a new alarm console that can be configured to pop-up automatically in the event there is a new alarm. This console supports both live and recorded video playback associated with the alarm event.
Built on the open and extensible architecture of the Niagara Framework, Niagara Enterprise Security Release 2.2 supports both a single-site and multi-geographically dispersed sites that run numerous applications. It also facilitates interoperability and integration with other building automation systems, including lighting and heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, elevators, fire systems, and more. The end results are truly intelligent buildings that use less energy, have lower operating costs, are safer, contribute to sustainable environments and deliver significant ROI.
For building owners and end users, Niagara Enterprise Security 2.2, provides unparalleled compatibility within traditional security environments as well as with all other building systems to create a common browser based experience, and a single application for sharing data and responding to disparate system events.
As a development platform, Niagara Enterprise Security is a reusable software platform for OEM's that allows for the development and integration of various security components, including visitor management, access control, video surveillance, and intrusion. As a result, OEMs benefit in cost savings, time saved in application development, time to market and resources required for development.
