Spica – New Premium Technology Partner

An excellent collaboration combined with best-of-breed technologies can make business partners achieve more than they could have on their own. A perfect example is the technology partnership between Spica and Advancis and the full integration of Spica’s access control system in WinGuard.

The open PSIM platform WinGuard supports the user in the control centre with dynamic workflows (SOPs) both in case of routine tasks and emergencies. Events can easily be processed as WinGuard automatically interacts with other connected technical systems such as CCTV, intrusion detection or building automation.

“With Door Cloud, Spica has been at the forefront of cloud access control technology for several years, offering a real multi-tenant service and true mobility with remote door opening and smartphone card replacement. We appreciate the collaboration with this highly-qualified Premium Technology Partner“, states Christian Jourdan, Strategic Alliances Manager at Advancis.

Advancis receives LenelS2 Factory Certification under LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program

Advancis Software & Services GmbH today announced that it has received LenelS2 factory certification and joined the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program (OAAP). WinGuard from Advancis interfaces with the OnGuard® access control system. The integration allows the LenelS2 OnGuard access control system to be managed directly from WinGuard equipped control rooms.

“Advancis has completed required factory testing at LenelS2 to validate the functionality of its interface to the OnGuard system. WinGuard (SOPs) augments the OnGuard systems situational awareness capabilities with more dynamic workflows so that the user has an enhanced ability to manage alarms and situations,” said John Marchioli, OAAP Product Management, LenelS2. “We look forward to their continued involvement in the LenelS2 OpenAccess Alliance Program.”

“We have now received LenelS2 factory certification for the seamless integration of the OnGuard access control system versions 7.6 and 8.0 into the open PSIM platform WinGuard which allows us to benefit from the LenelS2 OAAP program”, stated David Teppe, Head of Strategic Alliances at Advancis.

WinGuard from Advancis is an open PSIM platform that unifies control of disparate security, building management and communication systems via one single user interface. This includes video surveillance, fire alarm, access control, intrusion detection, perimeter protection, building automation, communication systems and much more.

Gantner – New Premium Technology Partner

Today we welcome GANTNER Electronic as a new Premium Technology Partner in the WinGuard community! The Advancis Technology Partner Program was established to promote the deep integration of systems from internationally leading manufacturers into WinGuard. More than 470 interfaces to systems of various manufacturers offer today the greatest possible flexibility for the selection or update of subsystems (fire/intrusion alarm system, video, access, etc.). The performance spectrum of the respective systems is always fully integrated into the vendor-neutral PSIM system WinGuard.

By the innovative communication interface GAT ACE 7000 from GANTNER, the connection between access control terminals and management software is established and fully integrated in WinGuard. Thus, access control and time recording are comprehensively represented in the operational security organisation. Depending on the used reader unit, different types of data carriers can be applied such as contactless badges (RFID) or magnetic and infrared cards.

“We look very much forward to the close collaboration with GANTNER”, states Christian Jourdan, Strategic Alliances Manager at Advancis. “The management of authorisations and the evaluation of movement data remain simple and intuitive due to the integration in WinGuard. In case of an alarm, predefined actions are triggered automatically and the alarm handling is perfectly organized and documented.”

Showroom Update

We would like to thank Multicomsystem OHG for the new assembly point column that has recently been installed in our WinGuard 3D showroom. In connection with a fire detection system, the Interflex 6040 access control system and the GE800 intercom from Commend, it can be demonstrated how various events are processed via the integration of all four systems in WinGuard.

For example, in case of a fire alarm, a building must be evacuated. After the announcement via intercom has been triggered automatically, persons leave the building, go to the assembly point and register at the point column via their badge so that the control centre is aware who is missing and might be trapped inside the building. Visit our virtual showroom to see how situation management works with WinGuard.
