Qognify Announces Gallagher Integration

A newly formed partnership between Qognify and Gallagher Security enables bi-directional integration between Qognify’s VMS technologies and Gallagher’s access control platform.

PEARL RIVER, N.Y.—Qognify, part of Hexagon, a provider of video and enterprise incident management solutions, and Gallagher, a manufacturer of flexible, integrated access control solutions, have announced the release the integration between Qognify VMS and Gallagher access control.

Oognify explains that in a world of converging technology ecosystems, siloed solutions are no longer viable—and this applies in particular to physical security, where only combined information enables a comprehensive assessment of a situation as well as an appropriate and timely response. For this reason, Qognify offers a set of open interfaces that enable a seamless connection to other physical security technologies such as access control, intruder alarms or video analysis. Based on this technology, a new true bi-directional integration between Qognify VMS and Gallagher access control is now available.

“As an independent provider of physical security software, we attach great importance to technology partnerships that enable system integrators and end customers to create their specific security ecosystems,” comments Andreas Beerbaum, vice president of sales –International at Qognify.

“The bidirectional integration of Gallagher access control is another important building block for generating joint success in project business.”

Qognify Integration with Gallagher Provides Access Control System Flexibility

The companies point out that depending on the end user’s workflows and preferences, either Gallagher Command Centre or Qognify VMS may be used as the leading system. Users can employ the Gallagher system to display live and archive video streams from Qognify VMS. Similarly, users can utilize the Qognify VMS plugin to dynamically read entity and status information and incidents such as door open and door forced open from the Gallagher system. This information can then be visualized on maps and floor plans in the Qognify VMS client.

In addition, doors can be locked or unlocked from within the Qognify VMS client to give security personnel the ability to react quickly and appropriately to a situation without having to switch between different user interfaces.

“Gallagher is committed to ongoing innovation with our Command Centre solution. A critical aspect of this innovation depends on building rich Application Programming Interfaces and integration points as ultimately, this ensures that customers can extend the site management software ecosystem in ways that suit the way they work,” notes Lee Smith, technical account manager for Gallagher Security, Africa.

“We are pleased to be working in partnership with Qognify VMS to be able to offer customers with an integration that further enables a solution that is customized to their business needs.”
