Genetec, Alutel Integration Brings Mobility to Security Center

Alta’s integration with Genetec’s Security Center Synergis allows mobile readers to generate access events, virtual zones and geofence alerts from any location

MONTREAL — Genetec announces that its technology partner Alutel Mobility, a manufacturer of mobile access control systems, now offers extended access control capabilities to open areas, transport facilities, construction sites, mining, oil and gas operations and education establishments without having to rely on physical readers or installations.

Alutel Mobile is available now for Genetec Security Center, the company’s unified, open-architecture platform that combines access control, video management systems and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR).

Using the Genetec software development kit, Alutel developed integrated functionality in Security Center Synergis that allows its mobile readers and virtual zones to function the same way as a traditional, wired and wall-mounted card reader unit.

These mobile units can synchronize cardholder information, badges, schedules, and access rules, while also reading barcodes and QR codes, which trigger alarms and generate valid and invalid access events, depending on rule configurations, according to the company.

Installed on smartphones and tablets, Alutel Mobile can extend access control readers from globally recognized hardware manufacturers to read credential types including:

  • HID
  • iCLASS
  • TWIC
  • PIV
  • AWID

If wireless communication is cut off, an offline mode ensures uninterrupted service. Virtual zones can be created with defined geofences in areas of interest that activate an ‘event’ when a device enters or leaves that zone.

“Alutel Mobility expands the access control possibilities for Genetec Security Center end-users by adding access control features capable of working in places without physical installations,” says José Grudzien, president of Alutel Mobility.

Mustering reports can be generated in real-time during evacuation scenarios, allowing users to know how many employees are ‘checked-in’ safe, and who remains unaccounted for.

“As Genetec continues to be recognized as a leading innovator for access control technology, partners like Alutel Mobility help extend the enterprise capabilities for a greater number of customers,” says Thibaut Louvet, Genetec product group director for access control research and development.
