MONTREAL, Canada—Genetec announces the availability of a new generation of its Synergis Cloud Link Gateway.
The new PoE-enabled Internet of Things (IoT) gateway is designed for access control applications, and the company says the product addresses the growing demand for non-proprietary access control solutions that require a safe and secure Cloud gateway for Cloud or hybrid systems.
“The need for non-proprietary access control solutions has never been greater,” says Thibault Louvet, access control product group director, Genetec. “Our new generation Synergis Cloud Link enables us to provide organizations with a powerful, secure and intelligent gateway to the latest technology while allowing them to easily connect to hybrid or Cloud access control environments and keep their existing security investment including hardware, wiring and infrastructure.”

The Synergis Cloud Link IoT gateway also incorporates embedded functionalities to support access control functions in situations where the connection to the server is down.
