Genetec Announces Strategic Partnership with ASSA ABLOY

Genetec Announces Strategic Partnership with ASSA ABLOYGenetec, a provider of unified IP security solutions, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with ASSA ABLOY, a provider of door opening solutions. Together, Genetec and ASSA ABLOY will offer streamlined integration between Genetec’s SMC (Synergis Master Controller), an intelligent IP door controller that connects to both industry-standard door modules and electronic locks, and the latest WiFi and PoE (Power over Ethernet) electronic locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and SARGENT.

Through this partnership, Genetec’s customers will have even more options when designing their physical security system and will be able to use Synergis to configure, synchronize and monitor their ASSA ABLOY locks, together with their standard, IP-based, door controllers.  When Synergis and ASSA ABLOY’s electronic locks are deployed alongside Genetec’s video surveillance products, users will view WiFi and PoE lock events and activities seamlessly linked with live or recorded video.  This will give security professionals a more complete view of their installation than what is seen today with traditional access control products.

"Because our Synergis access control solution is an open platform, we are able to further expand our ecosystem of access control partners to give our customers additional options such as ASSA ABLOY’s IP-enabled, electronic locks," said Jimmy Palatsoukas, senior manager of product marketing at Genetec.  “The integration will allow our customers to easily extend their existing access control infrastructure into hard-to-reach or inaccessible locations through WiFi locks that do not require any wiring, as well as leverage their existing network cabling with PoE locks to simplify installation and reduce costs."

“We are pleased to offer Genetec customers a smart solution for expanding their Synergis systems at a much lower cost than traditional hardwired components,” said Martin Huddart, vice president of electronic technologies for ASSA ABLOY Americas. “The integration of ASSA ABLOY IP-enabled locks with the Genetec Synergis platform allows facilities to leverage their IT infrastructure to bring electronic access control deeper into the building.”
