Intergrated Security Manufacturing (ISM) – a leader in the design, development and manufacture of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) technology – is to show the latest version of its proven Genesys security management system at ISC West 2015 in Las Vegas, which runs from 15-17 April. The company will be present in Booth 31108.
Genesys v2 is a technology designed by engineers who have a firm understanding of the commercial security market and which delivers “exceptional” levels of functionality, performance and ease of use for system installations both large and small.
Steve Smith, managing director of ISM, explained that the business continues to invest significantly in technology and R&D and is expanding the use and application of Genesys into new markets.
“The US provides a significant growth opportunity for our PSIM technology,” said Smith, “and notably in Homeland Security applications to protect critical infrastructure, embassies and data centres. There’s also a market in new vertical sectors including casinos.”
Smith continued: “Whatever the size of the installation or the opportunity, Genesys is fully scalable and able to ‘flex’ in line with a client’s needs.”
Genesys allows the integration of multiple systems from multiple manufacturers – all from one holistic integrated security system. Every electronic security or fire safety device from CCTV and intruder alarms to electronic locking and Public Address can be monitored and controlled from a single platform.
Control migration in practice
Most importantly, Genesys features Migrating 3+ technology, a patented automatic failover technology that adds higher levels of automatic configurable redundancy and power. Control is effectively distributed across multiple workstations:
“We take power to your PC and multiple it by the number of PCs on your network,” stated Smith. “What this means is that if one PC fails, control is migrated to another PC on a seamless basis with no interruption or downtime. Our system is not restricted in its performance by the size or capability of a server, nor does it require the expense of moving to server farms or using clustering software.”
Genesys is a ‘true’ PSIM system built around intuitive software that combine a range of industry leading features and benefits including an enhanced graphical user experience and 3-D modelling as well as a comprehensive event management database.
Events and alarms are presented to the operator clearly as and when they happen.
The PSIM software operates as a standalone platform over LAN or WAN networks for remote and local sites with workstations that can be transferred to any operating Security Control Room on the network. This offers end users flexibility when closing down sites or buildings for off-peak or out of normal working hours (or in the unlikely event of any system failures).
