Technology provider Genetec has today announced Synergis IX, a new line of hardware that combines access control and intrusion monitoring.

The Synergis IX devices are designed to work with the Genetec Security Center platform to unify access control and intrusion functions with video surveillance, communications and more. Synergis IX is available immediately in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) from Genetec partner Hills Limited.

By adopting a line of hardware combining access control and intrusion devices in a single platform, customers can significantly reduce installation time and total cost of ownership, while achieving operational efficiencies and gaining greater insight into their security environment.

“For both regulatory and practical reasons, our customers in Australia and New Zealand require hybrid solutions that offer both access control and intrusion in one device,” says Genetec access control product group director Thibaut Louvet.

“Synergis IX provides all-in-one access control and intrusion monitoring solution but opens the door to greater efficiency through Security Center, which unifies video surveillance, communications and other security systems under the same platform.”

Featuring a broad range of hybrid controllers, modules, readers, and keypads, Synergis IX enables users to control and monitor a scalable number of intrusion areas, doors, cardholders, and other field devices regardless of geographical location.

With digital certificate support, claims-based authentication, and end-to-end encrypted communications, security throughout every layer of the architecture is ensured.

“The security market in Australia and New Zealand continues to grow at an exponential rate, with a tremendous appetite for solutions that enable customers to manage all of their security systems on a single interface," says Genetec APAC managing director Daniel Lee.

"We are excited to work with our partners Hills Limited to bring Synergis IX to the ANZ market."

Genetec is a technology company with a solutions portfolio that encompasses security, intelligence, and operations.

The company's flagship product, Security Center, is an open-architecture platform that unifies IP-based video surveillance, access control, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), communications, and analytics.

Genetec also develops cloud-based solutions and services designed to improve security, and contributes operational intelligence for governments, enterprises, transport, and communities.

Founded in 1997, and headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Genetec serves its global customers via a network of resellers, integrators, certified channel partners, and consultants in over 80 countries.
