LifeSafety Power and Identiv Form Technology Partnership
The collaboration has resulted in a new mechanical integration that offers a self-contained rack-mounted power solution.
MUNDELEIN, Ill. — LifeSafety Power, a provider of intelligent networking power solutions, has forged a technology partnership with Identiv, a global provider of physical security and secure identification solutions.
The collaboration will result in providing greater integration and visibility to connected power solutions in access control specifications, according to an announcement.
The announcement states the partnership has resulted in a space-saving access control rack configuration that allows a compact mounting of Identiv’s Hirsch Mx Controller (available in 2-, 4- or 8-door configurations) and readies installers and systems integrators for intelligent power monitoring and greater network visibility.
Integrators and security personnel can benefit from the analytics included with Identiv’s Hirsch Velocity Software for security management, people movement, alarm management and security device operations, in addition to LifeSafety Power’s NetLink Network Communication and Multi-Site Manager-Enterprise power intelligence.
Through the partnership, NetLink users and system installers can proactively maintain their deployments and provide remote service and managed monitoring capabilities that include battery standby testing, AC and system fault alerts, remote power cycling for use during troubleshooting or scheduled operational tasks and defective lock detection.
“Identiv is focused on extending the capabilities of our access control platforms through technology partnerships like that forged with LifeSafety Power,” says Sam Tuthill, senior product manager, Identiv. “Now, not only can we provide comprehensive security, but we are also able to offer enhanced visibility into powered devices across the enterprise so users can gain better insights into systems with proactive diagnostics and the ability to control power solutions across the city or globe.”
Establishing partnerships with leading access control innovators such as Identiv is key to LifeSafety Power’s efforts in reshaping the power category into an intuitive system by bringing data and intelligence to connected solutions, states Larry Ye, CEO and president, LifeSafety Power.
“We’re excited to reach new users and systems integrators through the partnership with Identiv,” Ye says. “The available capabilities offer increased uptime at the protected premises and the ability to foresee and head off potential problems with power and access control deployments, meaning a more reliable solution overall.”
