Gallagher Integrates Software With Invixium for Contactless Biometric Temperature, Mask Detection
The integration allows for Invixium’s TITAN reader to communicate health events to Gallagher’s Command Centre security management platform.
RIVERSIDE, Mo. — Gallagher Security, a global provider of access control solutions, and Invixium, a manufacturer of touchless biometric solutions, announce an integration between Gallagher Command Centre and Invixium’s IXM WEB software.
As part of their COVID-19 response, Gallagher and Invixium collaborated to develop an integrated, user-friendly solution to address the global market’s immediate, health-oriented needs, according to an announcement.
IXM TITAN with Enhancement Kit is Invixium’s flagship biometric reader and the center of its COVID-19 solution, which delivers simultaneous face recognition and elevated body temperature detection at the medial canthus (tear duct).
Through this integrated solution, TITAN will now communicate health events such as temperature screening and mask detection to Gallagher’s security management platform, Command Centre. Alarm notification events — such as elevated body temperature or the absence of a face mask — will be captured in Command Centre’s Alarm Viewer.
“At Gallagher, we place high importance on offering our customers high-security solutions that meet their ever changing needs,” says Mark Junge, global general manager for security at Gallagher. “This drive has put us at the forefront of security providers and led us to integrate with Invixium, whose rapid, touchless face recognition and temperature screening (while wearing a protective mask) solution adds highly sought-after features to our portfolio. We are excited about the additional value this integration contributes to creating a safe and assured future for our customers globally.”
The integration will also allow users of Command Centre to perform biometric enrollment and device management directly within the Gallagher software, along with two-way synchronization of cardholders and access groups.
This integration also supports multiple access card assignment (up to 10 cards per cardholder) so businesses that issue more than one card to the same person can fully employ TITAN’s card-reading features.
“COVID-19 has been a wake-up call for security manufacturers,” says Shiraz Kapadia, CEO & president of Invixium. “As a company focused on creating healthy, safe environments for staff and visitors, this deep integration with Gallagher serves as a testament to our commitment to ensuring security through user-friendly, intelligent solutions. We look forward to continuing our work with Gallagher to build a healthier, more secure future.”
The features of this integration are available in Command Centre v8.30, where a Gallagher REST API license is required, and IXM WEB version 126.96.36.199, which requires an Invixium IXM Link license.
