Pelco and AMAG Join Forces to Provide Integrated Surveillance and Access Control Solution

Scalable Solution Delivers Comprehensive System Management and Control

Clovis, CA (November 9, 2017) – Pelco by Schneider Electric, a global leader in surveillance and security products and technologies, has joined forces with AMAG Technology, a leading manufacturer of access control and security products. The integration provides a truly integrated and scalable access control and surveillance system management solution enabling end-users across a wide spectrum of applications to make faster and more informed decisions.

“The integration of Pelco’s VideoXpert VMS and AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control System provides security professionals with an extremely powerful and versatile system management and control solution,” said Jonathan Lewit, Director of Technology Leadership, Pelco by Schneider Electric. “By engaging with industry leaders like AMAG, Pelco continues to focus its attention of providing users with meaningful innovation that delivers the best combination of performance, functionality, and cost-efficiency they need to best protect their facilities, assets, and people.”

Pelco’s VideoXpert VMS and AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control System provides a number of versatile ways to combine surveillance and access devices with software into a unified Security Management System. The integrated solution is standardized for any IP LAN, WAN, or VPN network and is designed for minimal bandwidth use. For small systems, a single PC can host both VideoXpert and Symmetry, acting as both the client and server.

Other benefits of the VideoXpert VMS and Symmetry Access Control System integration include: a user interface design with graphical map capability; comprehensive alarm handling features; and the capability for unlimited client workstations, card readers and card holders. As an added bonus, video badging and visitor management software is also included.
