Genetec Security Center

Unified Security Platform

Genetec Security Center is a unified security platform that integrates physical security devices and software into a cohesive system. The Security Center application combines IP cameras, access control readers, sensors and detection devices, license plate recognition systems, IP intercoms, and video analytics, providing a robust solution for managing security operations. This combination of power and simplicity makes Security Center one of the most advanced video management systems.

Security Center offers a comprehensive suite of storage solutions, including on-premise, cloud, and hybrid options to meet diverse needs.

How does Unification work?

Security Center merges three security applications:

  • Video Surveillance: Omnicast™ is an IP video management system that supports a wide range of cameras and CCTV equipment.
  • Access Control: Synergis™ is an IP access control system that offers management of doors, cardholders, and credentials.
  • Number Plate Recognition: AutoVu™ is an IP license plate recognition system for automating vehicle identification.

The Security Center platform combines these components into a single, unified interface called the Security Desk. This interface offers real-time event and alarm monitoring, dynamic map-based visualisation, and the ability to track door and cardholder activity. By providing a single source of information for security operations, it enhances operational efficiency and situational awareness.
