Gallagher Security Teams Up with Edge360 to Deliver Advanced Video and Access Control Solution

Award-winning Gallagher Security strengthens Command Centre’s VMS capabilities by partnering with Edge360, the company that delivers a comprehensive containerized video management solution, to create a unified video and access control solution.

Blake Smith, national technical manager for Gallagher Security North America, sees the partnership between the two companies as a natural fit. “Edge360 and Gallagher share many common values and we’re both committed to delivering flexible, high-performing solutions. Combining access control and video surveillance systems gives our Command Centre users unparalleled control over their sites, and I think users will feel the benefits of this partnership immediately.”

Through the Gallagher and Edge360 partnership, Command Centre users will be able to seamlessly view and control video surveillance and access control systems from a single interface, streamlining operations and enhancing efficiency. By correlating video footage with access events, users can investigate incidents comprehensively and quickly identify specific recordings associated with those events. The synchronized workflows and coordinated responses enabled by the combined focus on video and access control eliminate the need for separate systems and manual coordination improving security operations.

More importantly, the new integration empowers users with advanced video analytics capabilities, transforming raw video footage into valuable insights. By leveraging features such as facial recognition, object detection, people counting and motion detection, users can gain deeper situational awareness and make data-driven decisions. These powerful analytics not only enhance security but also automate processes, saving time and optimizing resource allocation for better operational outcomes. 

"We are pleased to announce the integration of Gallagher's Command Centre with Edge360's Surveill video management platform. This combination of these advanced technologies offers users an unparalleled level of control, efficiency, and situational awareness by combining access control and video surveillance into a seamless experience," said John Rezzonico, CEO, Edge360. "In a landscape where speed and precision are of the essence, this is a game-changer for optimizing security operations and resource allocation." 

Edge360's Surveill VMS stands at the forefront of security technology, offering an unprecedented level of reliability, uptime, and data security through its innovative integration of containerization with the operating system. Designed to manage mission-critical video workloads, Surveill provides an IT-friendly foundation that seamlessly scales to meet the increasingly complex safety and operational demands of today's world. With a focus on performance, scalability, and resilience, Surveill VMS is not just a tool but a comprehensive solution for optimizing security operations. 

Overall, having a joint centralized management system provides a cohesive and powerful solution that simplifies operations, enhances incident response, and improves the overall security management of any premises through Command Centre, giving users more holistic controls over their sites. 

Gallagher will be displaying Command Centre’s partnership with Edge360 at GSX, in booth 4433, Sept. 11-13.
