C&C Partners in Poland have realised their 10th WinGuard project

Congratulations to our CWI partner C&C Partners in Poland for the realisation of their 10th WinGuard project! Our collaboration started in 2018 and has constantly moved forward since then. 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. For example, integration of the recently developed interface to the Integra 256 system by Satel was additionally verified by C&C Partners. We would like to thank C&C Partners for the excellent collaboration so far and look forward to a lot of upcoming joint projects.

Protector Award 2020: Vote now for WinGuard X4!

Every year, PROTECTOR awards the best security products in the categories CCTV surveillance, access control and alarm technologies. Vote for the open PSIM platform WinGuard X4 from Advancis until 05 June 2020. The winners will be announced on 13 July 2020.

The latest WinGuard version X4 offers innovations in cyber security such as encryption of network communication and databases using AES. Furthermore secured signature storage protects all external files such as CAD floor plans from unauthorised manipulation. The support of central key management (PKI) allows an easy administration as well as the integration into already existing systems and security concepts.

In addition, the WinGuard App for iOS or Android enables mobile access to the PSIM platform and all connected systems at any time – for simple and fast remote control. Especially in the current situation, this facilitates working from home or from remote operator stations. For the purpose of maintenance works, it is very easy to arm or disarm detectors remotely via mobile devices. On the other hand, personnel on site can report events to the control centre via their smartphones or tablets.

Vote now for WinGuard X4 – we look forward to your support.

Please note that the website is only available in German language and the voting has to be given for all three categories. Please select a company to vote for on each category. When selected it will highlight green and then you can move to the next category. WinGuard X4 will be displayed in the third category “Gefahrenmeldetechnik”.

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.

Presentation of the PROTECTOR & WIK Award Silver in the category PSIM

The readers of the magazine PROTECTOR and the users of the online portal sicherheit.info made their decision: Second winner in the category PSIM is the functional module “Control Operations” by Advancis. It is a concept for reliable control management of security-technology systems (arm/disarm, disablements/re-enablements, revision on/off, etc.). If, for example, fire detectors are not disabled during the execution of welding works, false alarms might be triggered. If the re-enablement after completion of works is forgotten, the non-detection of a real fire would have drastic impact.

Therefore, the complete process should be digitalized with the help of the module. Via web forms, the disablement and re-enablement can be requested. Furthermore, all involved parties have online access anytime to the control operations planning or the current detector status. In the defined period, the target status will be monitored, so that third parties cannot perform any unnoticed changes directly at the systems.

The module serves for reduction of false alarms and for the secure detection of hazardous situations, so that also costs and resources for unnecessary operations will be saved. An effective process chain is the result. Due to the reduced communication and the digitalized processes, the personnel in the control center can concentrate on important alarms and emergencies.

On 27 June 2018, Jan Meiswinkel, CEO of Advancis, received the award personally at the SicherheitsExpo trade fair in Munich. We would like to thank you very much for your vote!
