Proximex Surveillint PSIM solution from Tyco Security Products offers “unparalleled situational awareness”

Tyco Security Products has announced the newest release of its Proximex Surveillint PSIM solution, which provides Security Operations Centres with “unparalleled situational awareness and communication capabilities” through enterprise dashboards, contact management, social media integration and a new module that raises operator alarms based on correlated events.

A new Analysis Module enables alarms to be raised on combinations of events that are separated by time or space without the clutter of extraneous alerts. For example, a site might want to raise an alert only when a combination of sensors (eg a fence motion sensor and video analytics) report an event in the same location.

The Analysis Module can also trigger operator alerts for events that may otherwise be ignored (for instance, raising an invalid access attempt alarm if someone repeatedly tries to access a secure location by using a card at multiple doors).

“We’re committed to giving end user organisations around the world as much information as possible about potential threats and the quickest, most cost-effective ways to communicate with their communities,” explained Michael Mesaros, group product manager at Proximex, which is part of Tyco Security Products.

“Operators can now receive automatic notification of weather events, for example, and they now have the ability to deploy a cost-effective mass-notification solution. This capability can be used to implement a crowdsourced ‘Say Something, Text Something’-style incident reporting system.”

This latest release of Surveillint features a new development tool that allows deployers to quickly build custom dashboards that display real-time operational information from security, building management and enterprise application systems. Security Operations Centres can, in one convenient display, monitor the number and types of open alarms, operator response times, the status of doors, cameras and sensors in the environment and other operational metrics.

“Our customers want to be able to continuously monitor their security and operational status,”  said Stephen Moody, business development manager for Ireland-based systems integrator ViS Security Solutions, which deployed Surveillint for a local hospital. “This new ability to design custom enterprise dashboards which combine data from a variety of security and operational systems will help us to address that need and deliver additional value for our end customers.”

Intergrated Security Manufacturing shortlisted in Benchmark Innovation Awards 2015

Intergrated Security Manufacturing (ISM) – a specialist in the design, development and manufacture of Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) technology – has been shortlisted in the Site Protection Software category of the Benchmark Innovation Awards 2015 for its Genesys V2 software platform. 

Genesys is a fully-integrated PSIM technology suitable for entry level applications that require the integration of up to two different hardware solutions through to very complex solutions. It allows multiple computer systems from different manufacturers to be incorporated into one holistic security system.

At its core, the technology enables every electronic security or fire safety device – from CCTV and intruder alarms to electronic locking and public address systems – to be monitored and controlled from one single platform. This not only brings greater control for end users with automatic escalation of selected alarm scenarios but also decreases operating costs against traditional security guarding.

Importantly, Genesys features Migrating 3+, a patented automatic failover technology that adds high levels of automatic configurable redundancy with control diffused across all PCs on a given network. This effective distribution scenario means that security is never compromised: if one PC fails then control is seamlessly migrated to another with no interruptions.

Genesys also provides the operator with a high resolution 2D or 3D image that affords an instant overview of onsite maps while all activity is recorded on a log such that detailed reports or audit trails can be created.

Stephen Smith, managing director of ISM, said that to be shortlisted is clear evidence for both existing and prospective customers that ISM is a true innovator in its field.

“Innovation is at the very core of our business,” explained Smith. “For Genesys to be shortlisted in the 2015 Benchmark Innovation Awards is testament to the many hours that we commit to driving the security sector forward.”

For this year’s awards, Benchmark will be collaborating with UBM – the organiser of IFSEC International – to present the Innovation Arena. As such, nominated companies like ISM will be invited to deliver a presentation of their product to an audience of installers, integrators, end users and other professionals currently seeking innovative security management solutions for their buildings.
