Managed Access Control as a Service

After your access control system is installed you need to manage the system. The issues end users face with the ongoing management include understanding if the system is online and working, remote access to update user credentials and having the staff available to make the changes.

secCloud was developed to overcome these issues. On a daily basis we monitor all the modules are online and operational from our National Operations Centre. Using monitoring software we manage the network of controllers to ensure they are online. As the controllers are online you can login to the secCloud system to make the changes required to user access. If you do not have the time or the personnel to make the changes required then we can do it for you.

Whether you need an end user added to the system, access card or alarm code data updated or reports generated we can do that work for you. That way you can focus on your business and we will ensure your building assets are secure.

Telecommunications

Remote access to a security system

secVision Networks can provide the telecommunications needed to ensure remote access to a security system is established. There are several reasons why remote access to the security systems is required:

Simplicity and flexibility are at the core of the system. You can arm and disarm the alarm using a time schedule, a keypad, by swiping your access control reader, a smartphone app or using the customer portal?

secCloud supports many alarm input devices including motion detectors, door reed switches, duress buttons, smoke and heat alarms or signals from other systems like a fire alarm system.

Integrate the alarm and access control features of the system to double badge arm the system from a reader.

Partition your building into multiple areas and then allow people to arm and disarm only the areas of a building in which they have access.

When an intrusion occurs secCloud can turn on the lights so the CCTV system gets clear recorded images as evidence of the break in.

secCloud can send you an email when the system goes into alarm so you can log onto the system and manage the situation.

Alarm monitoring over the internet is onboard and part of the system. This makes the system NBN ready and allows you to leverage your investment in existing data networks and connections.

Upgrade your existing system easily with secCloud. Where you have an existing system with movement detectors and sirens you can simply replace the control equipment with secCloud hardware. Then you can control the system from the customer portal or using your smartphone.

Where you manage multiple buildings you can control the alarm systems in all of these buildings using the secCloud interface.

Mobile Key gives you the ability to control your security system while you are on the go. You can use your smartphone to login to your system with the same user rights as the secCloud customer portal. So if you can unlock doors, disarm the alarm or turn on lights from the customer portal then you can do this on the go using your smartphone.

See the status of devices on the secCloud system. The icons are colour coded to show you if an alarm area is on or off, or if a door is opened or closed. Real time access to your system is available from anywhere in the world you have a connection to the internet.

Security issues arise when you are away from the office. You can be notified through a push notification to your phone when a security event occurs. Then login and review the events of what happened and make decisive action. Mobile Key gives you situational awareness of what is happening on site when you are not there.

Mobile Key has double authentication. To use Mobile Key you have to login to your phone using a password or biometrics then use a PIN code for the Mobile Key application making it a safe option.

How Mobile key works

Once the app is on your phone you set a PIN code then enter your secCloud username and password. You select the site you need to control and then your user privileges set by your administrator become available on Mobile Key.

secServer

Enterprise Grade Security System

Integrated security system for an organisation with a large campus or multiple sites, where you need the system to be controlled on your network. secServer is powered by Protege GX, an enterprise grade access control, intruder detection and building automation system from Integrated Control Technology. At the core of the system is an intuitive and sophisticated software system that can communicate with multiple control modules making the system infinitely scalable.

Each controller has an IP network connection so you can run multiple controllers on a single local area network or across a wide area network around the city, country or globe. Many multinational companies are running security, access control and building automation on the Protege GX platform.

Floor Plans: Graphical floor plans provide a visual representation of your site and are a quick and efficient way to control and monitor your Protege system. You can quickly arm and disarm areas, control doors and outputs, and view input status and live variable information.

Status Pages: Fully customisable, status pages provide an intuitive graphical interface that minimises the learning curve allowing new users to get up to speed quickly. The flexible design enables you to include the content relevant to your site, for a statewide overview or allowing you to drill down into more detail.

Targeted Information: Customizable alarm and event filters enable you to sort and filter what and how information is displayed to an operator. Filtering the noise and showing only what is relevant improves efficiency and ensures an accurate response to incidents.

Reports Made Accessible: Getting the information you need has never been easier or more accessible. With a comprehensive range of built in reports and the ability to create an unlimited number of custom reports, ProtegeGX offers a commanding range of reporting capabilities, and you can even generate reports automatically at scheduled times and have them sent to a defined user via email.

You would consider using secServer where you want the security platform on your network behind a corporate firewall. If your network security policies are rigorous then secServer will suit your organisation.

Integration is at the heart of the secServer platform.

DVR/NVR Systems: Combine the power of Protege GX with third party DVR/NVR systems to create a full featured and cohesive solution. Seamless integration enables you to control cameras, and view live and historical video footage from a single easy to use interface.

Wireless and Offline Locking Solutions: Expand your existing access control system without the limitations, cost, and inconvenience normally associated with hard wired doors by integrating your Protege system with a wireless and offline locking solution.

Intercom Systems: Integrating an intercom system with access and security, provides a cohesive solution that ensures the protection of the site. With the use of an intercom, you can see or hear who is at your door before deciding to let them in, increasing security and improving communication.

Elevator Systems: Protege GX is not limited to controlling access to doors. Buildings that have elevators often require access to floors to be controlled as well. Elevator integration links elevator control systems with ICT’s Protege system to increase building security and improve the flow of people.

Data Sync Service: Combine the power of enterprise level integrated access control with external data sources. The ability to synchronize data between the systems, reduces management time and administration while providing single data entry and enhancing efficiency.

Custom Integration Tools: But we don’t stop at off the shelf solutions. While we’ve invested a lot of resources into ensuring you don’t need to reinvent the wheel, there may be times when you want to upgrade those tyres. Our custom integration tools give you the freedom to utilize your own experts to tailor a solution that meets your exact needs.

Flexible System Architecture: The server based architecture makes ProtegeGX a truly global system, enabling you to securely manage, control and monitor an unlimited number of users, doors, areas, and other devices, in real time regardless of geographical location. A centralized database improves efficiency and keeps your valuable sensitive data secure – not tucked away on a laptop in the back of a company vehicle.

Smart Cities IoT

Modern buildings offer lighting, air conditioning, air quality, elevators, parking and physical security systems aimed to maximise the productivity of building occupants. It makes sense to join these systems together to offer an intelligent building eco system.  

Smart Buildings bring all of the building management devices together. With secCloud you can control your lighting, energy, fire, elevator and HVAC systems from a web browser.

secCloud holds information that can be shared with the building management systems (BMS), like when people enter a space or the alarm has been armed. The systems can work together to turn on air conditioning when people arrive and swipe their access card to gain entry and turn off lights when the alarm is armed at night.

You can reduce your energy costs by integrating your systems together and cutting out the wasted electricity. If you are looking to decrease your environmental impact and gain a Green Star rating for your building then secCloud can be part of the solution.

Control lighting and air conditioning though time schedules from secCloud. Time of day, day of week and day light savings are all programmable in secCloud. These schedules can then drive you other building systems so the lights and air conditioning do not turn on when the building is not occupied. By integrating the security system you can control your energy consumption precisely and save money.

Optimise how the building performs and react quickly to issues that are raised. The secCloud system can email you when an event occurs to give you insight into what is happening on your site.

Low level integration versus high level integration

Like turning a light switch on and off, low level integration is triggered by relays changing state and switching other relays in the sub system. This type of integration is physical where the systems are connected together using cables. So if you do not have a building management system, then we can go ‘old school’ and secCloud can still help make your building smart.

High level integration is where the the system manufacturers have cooperated to build a bridge between the systems so they can send each other information which can be processed to initiate system changes. secCloud uses communication protocols like Modbus to talk to other BMS systems. This is real life M2M (machine to machine communication).

secServer

Enterprise Grade Security System

Integrated security system for an organisation with a large campus or multiple sites, where you need the system to be controlled on your network. secServer is powered by Protege GX, an enterprise grade access control, intruder detection and building automation system from Integrated Control Technology. At the core of the system is an intuitive and sophisticated software system that can communicate with multiple control modules making the system infinitely scalable.

Each controller has an IP network connection so you can run multiple controllers on a single local area network or across a wide area network around the city, country or globe. Many multinational companies are running security, access control and building automation on the Protege GX platform.

Floor Plans: Graphical floor plans provide a visual representation of your site and are a quick and efficient way to control and monitor your Protege system. You can quickly arm and disarm areas, control doors and outputs, and view input status and live variable information.

Status Pages: Fully customisable, status pages provide an intuitive graphical interface that minimises the learning curve allowing new users to get up to speed quickly. The flexible design enables you to include the content relevant to your site, for a statewide overview or allowing you to drill down into more detail.

Targeted Information: Customizable alarm and event filters enable you to sort and filter what and how information is displayed to an operator. Filtering the noise and showing only what is relevant improves efficiency and ensures an accurate response to incidents.

Reports Made Accessible: Getting the information you need has never been easier or more accessible. With a comprehensive range of built in reports and the ability to create an unlimited number of custom reports, ProtegeGX offers a commanding range of reporting capabilities, and you can even generate reports automatically at scheduled times and have them sent to a defined user via email.

Smart Cities IoT

Modern buildings offer lighting, air conditioning, air quality, elevators, parking and physical security systems aimed to maximise the productivity of building occupants. It makes sense to join these systems together to offer an intelligent building eco system.  

Smart Buildings bring all of the building management devices together. With secCloud you can control your lighting, energy, fire, elevator and HVAC systems from a web browser.

secCloud holds information that can be shared with the building management systems (BMS), like when people enter a space or the alarm has been armed. The systems can work together to turn on air conditioning when people arrive and swipe their access card to gain entry and turn off lights when the alarm is armed at night.

You can reduce your energy costs by integrating your systems together and cutting out the wasted electricity. If you are looking to decrease your environmental impact and gain a Green Star rating for your building then secCloud can be part of the solution.

Control lighting and air conditioning though time schedules from secCloud. Time of day, day of week and day light savings are all programmable in secCloud. These schedules can then drive you other building systems so the lights and air conditioning do not turn on when the building is not occupied. By integrating the security system you can control your energy consumption precisely and save money.

Optimise how the building performs and react quickly to issues that are raised. The secCloud system can email you when an event occurs to give you insight into what is happening on your site.

Low level integration versus high level integration

Like turning a light switch on and off, low level integration is triggered by relays changing state and switching other relays in the sub system. This type of integration is physical where the systems are connected together using cables. So if you do not have a building management system, then we can go ‘old school’ and secCloud can still help make your building smart.

High level integration is where the the system manufacturers have cooperated to build a bridge between the systems so they can send each other information which can be processed to initiate system changes. secCloud uses communication protocols like Modbus to talk to other BMS systems. This is real life M2M (machine to machine communication).
