The Security Center’s open and distributed architecture makes it all possible. Choose your own hardware. Optimize the use of your existing infrastructure. Grow your system one camera or door at time to hundreds or thousands of cameras or doors. Or, take your unified security platform to new heights by merging your LPR, video surveillance, and access control systems from around the world into a single large virtual system.
Experience a unique unified security solution unlike any other. Real-time monitoring, alarm management, and event reporting from all your security systems have never been easier. Benefit from advanced entity search functions, hierarchical views, a multitude of display tile patterns and context-sensitive widgets for door, camera, alarm, and PTZ camera controls.
Unified Monitoring and Configuration: The Security Desk is the unified user interface of the Security Center. Its compelling design and innovative task-based approach allow you to efficiently control and monitor multiple security and public safety applications. The unified configuration tool also helps streamline the whole configuration process for system administrators as common entities can be reused within video, LPR, and access control systems.
Distributed Client-Server Architecture: Benefit from high configuration flexibility with the Security Center. Distribute services and client applications across several servers or off-the-shelf workstations.
Scalable Multi-Site Monitoring: Unify multiple independent video and access control systems under a single virtual system with the Federation feature. Federate hundreds or thousands of remote systems for city-wide surveillance and managed central monitoring services.
Intrusion system integration: Integrate third-party intrusion panels and perimeter detection systems. Run reports on intrusion panel events or alarms, view video tied to intrusion events, and arm/disarm intrusion devices either through automated scheduled tasks or manually via the user interface.
Active Directory Integration: Connect to multiple directories and centralize the management and synchronization of Windows user accounts with the Security Center’s user and cardholder accounts. Provide single sign-on capabilities and ensure newly created Windows users automatically inherit the proper physical building access rights.
Centralized Alarm Management: Avoid the traditional approach of separate alarm monitoring applications with unsynchronized data for your different security systems. Configure, monitor and respond to alarms for your entire security environment.
Multi-Tenant Functionality: Segment operations per tenant or managed services account, and assign privileges per site with the Partioning feature. Give individual site managers or tenants their own sites to manage in parallel to any centralized monitoring.
High Availability: Get added reliability with a built-in failover mechanism and redundant archiving capabilities. A standby server can be setup and when the primary fails, the standby takes over so no data or video is lost. Use off-the-shelf industry standard failover solutions as alternatives.
Local video caching and buffering, all-frame video playback: Get faster access to recorded video as Security Center buffers video locally on the client workstation. This reduces the amount of retransmission that is typically required for video playback and thereby minimizes bandwidth usage.
Visual Tracking: Switch from one camera to an adjacent camera within a viewing tile when tracking a suspect, either in real-time or playback mode.
Genetec Software Development Kit (SDK): Integrate building management systems, enterprise resource planning systems, intrusion detection systems or develop custom business applications with the Security Center’s open SDK.
Advanced Reporting Capabilities: Generate a variety of integrated LPR, video and access control reports without the use of external third-party reporting tools.
