Colorado Judicial Center Installs New System to Comply with Government Mandates

The Ralph Carr Judicial Center in Denver, Colo., on track for completion in spring 2013, selected AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Homeland V7 Security Management System.  Symmetry Homeland is designed for government and affiliated organizations needing a security management system that meets stringent government requirements and certifications. AMAG Technology is a security management solution provider that specializes in converged access control, IP video and intrusion management solutions for the commercial and government markets. 

The state-of-the-art building complex includes a 12-story office building that will house seven judicial and legal agencies and a four-story courthouse that will include the Colorado Supreme Court Law Library and a large Visitors Learning Center.  The new building will consolidate offices to save money on leased spaces, implement energy-efficient strategies to improve operational procedures, save energy and water and provide a state of the art security system to protect employees and the public.

AMAG’s Symmetry Homeland Security Management System will integrate with 310 HID RP40 smartcard readers and NEC’s fault tolerant server solution to ensure system reliability. Over 250 cameras will provide digital video surveillance to monitor public and private areas of the Judicial Center.

“Symmetry Homeland will provide the Ralph Carr Judicial Center with a government compliant security solution that will grow with the building and continually comply with all government regulations now and in the future,” said AMAG Technology’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Matt Barnette. “AMAG’s vast experience working in the government sector demonstrates our commitment to providing compliant systems that are being utilized at the Ralph Carr Judicial Center.”

Guarantee Electrical’s Denver systems team has been chosen to install the structured cabling and fiber backbone as well as the government compliant security management system. They offer more than a century of expertise in electrical construction, preconstruction, design-build, communications/data systems and service and maintenance.

“We are proud to have such a major role in one of Colorado’s largest and highest profile construction projects. It is very exciting be providing the Ralph L. Carr Judicial Center with its security management system,” said Guarantee Electrical, Project Manager, Mike Anthony. “We feel that our partnership with AMAG provides the end user with the industry’s best technology and support."

Symmetry Homeland is a physical access control system (PACS) designed to provide powerful integrated access control and security management solutions for those users that need to comply with Federal regulations such as FIPS 201, FIPS 197, SP800-116, and HSPD-12 in support of smart card programs such as PIV, CAC, TWIC and FRAC.

    I’m a recovering alcoholic, ten years sober this June. I almost wrote “recovered alcoholic,” because it’s a problem I’ve long since put to bed in every practical sense. But anyone who’s dealt with addiction knows that that part of your brain never goes away. You just learn to tell the difference between that insidious voice in your head and your actual internal monologue, and you get better at telling the other guy to shut up. Read Now

    My first security trade show was in 2021. At the time, I was awed by the sheer magnitude of the event and the spectacle of products on display. But this was the first major trade show coming out of the pandemic, and the only commentary I heard was how low the attendance was. Two representatives from one booth even spent the last morning playing catch in the aisle with their giveaway stress balls. Read Now
