  • Complete range of video wall display technology to suit the client requirements
  • From WinGuard, any required data and source type can be displayed anywhere on the video wall(s) in any format, including IP video, graphic sources, message boxes, web browsers
  • Enhances proactive event and incident management
  • Increases situational awareness for operational staff when dealing with critical events
  • Seamless control and automation of the video wall from within the WinGuard application

UVS Managing Director Steve Murphy said: “We are delighted to be working closely with a global leader like Advancis and this integrated technology enhances our overall offering, bringing significant and tangible benefits for the client.”

Advancis are at the forefront of the PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) industry with offices and partners around the world. For more than 25 years we have developed a truly open software platform with over 450 supported system integrations.

MPL: First Certified Control Room Partner

MPL Alarm & Communicatie Centrale B.V. based in Barneveld/The Netherlands is the first official Advancis Certified Control Room Partner. The MPL control centre is an alarm management and communication centre using the WinGuard PSIM platform as a hosted solution, supporting thousands of business and private clients in remote security and building management applications. MPL offers a management solution which is both flexible and scalable so that the customer has the choice to either realise surveillance via their local control room or they can simply switch control to MPL at the press of a button to take over monitoring anytime on a 24/7 basis. MPL operates with the highest standards of  safety, security, service and sustainability.

WinGuard functions by monitoring any changes of variable status in all connected devices, changes are used as triggers to an event creation in the system. Event notifications are immediately transferred to the MPL control centre where MPL ensures that all appropriate actions are taken to resolve the situation, using WinGuard dynamic workflows. This applies to all security systems integrated into WinGuard:  CCTV, intercoms, fire alarm as well as building related systems such as parking management and telephone services,  air conditioning, pumps, temperature regulation and CO2 monitoring.

This leads to the collection of huge data amounts which is used for analysis, process improvements and real time dashboards. The evaluated data provides valuable insight into the performance of all systems that are installed in the monitored buildings (KPIs).

During their visit to the Advancis headquarters in Langen, the company’s CEOs Marcel and Peter Lenters were awarded the prestigious certified control room certificate from Jan Meiswinkel (Advancis CEO), Michel Noort (Managing Director of Advancis Netherlands) and Steven Patteeuw (International Sales Manager at Advancis).
