One of the challenges facing higher education campus security departments is the lack of interoperability among security & life safety systems. Systems that don’t integrate with one another are an impediment to the mission of keeping students and faculty secure. The campus security department is usually responsible for two, three, or more security applications from multiple vendors. If campus security staff is responsible for monitoring and managing alerts from multiple applications, user effectiveness and response can quickly become constrained.
Genetec Security Center is a single application that can unify IP video surveillance, access control, and automatic license plate recognition within one solution, helping to streamline security operations across campus. This technology enables the campus security team to become more proactive in identifying threats. As security needs grow, solutions and applications can easily be added.
With Security Center many common operations such as monitoring, reporting, alarm management, and configuration are streamlined into one application. Security Center also lets you implement a phased growth plan, so you can start with video surveillance or access control and unify other key systems over time. With this technology campuses can do the following:
- Unify monitoring
- Increase collaboration
- Minimize costs
- Expand campus security
- Improve reliability and maintenance
