The new WinGuard Android App

The new WinGuard Android App (version 2.0) is now available in the Play Store. The most important new features are the secure encryption of all connections via TLS (as of ASIPServer 8.4.8.2) as well as the logging of fault reports to improve analysis and faster troubleshooting. The WinGuard App, which is of course also available for iOS, is particularly helpful in the current situation as it facilitates working from home or from remote workstations.

UVS and Advancis announce Technology Partnership

Video wall technology experts Ultimate Visual Solutions (UVS) based in the UK have worked with PSIM manufacturers Advancis to display their WinGuard security and building management software application with the UVS Lucidity video wall controller.

WinGuard from Advancis unifies control of security, building automation, IT and communication systems and provides operators with an instant picture of full situational analysis for decision making, command and control of all systems.

The combined video wall solution, which will be further developed to meet specific project requirements, is now being demonstrated to potential clients at UVS’s HQ and northern demonstration facility in Burnley, Lancashire/UK, providing the following benefits:

  • 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.

C&C Partners are not only acting as a certified WinGuard integrator offering sales & service to end customers, but also support us with regard to the additional testing of new interfaces for the Polish market.

WinGuard X3 End of Life (EOL) & End of Support (EOS)

After more than six years of continuously developing functional updates for WinGuard X3, WinGuard X4 was released in May 2018. WinGuard X4 provides comprehensive revisions and lots of new functions.

To be able to focus completely on further development, we announce the end of life and therefore also end of support for the WinGuard X3 version as of 31 March 2020. As of this date, we cannot provide support for X3 any longer, even in case of problem reports. Since May 2018, new functions and interface module extensions and developments have only been published in the X4 version.

Until 31 March 2020, Advancis will of course continue to analyse reported problems and to resolve them. In case it is not possible to realise a solution in X3 at all or only with considerable additional effort, Advancis may request to update to the current WinGuard X4 release.
