WinGuard Sales Training 2022

Did you already know that Advancis offers a WinGuard Sales Training online (in German language)? The training consists of several different modules and helps to understand the project goals of customers, shows how to develop suitable solutions and what is important to finally win the contract.

There are three more upcoming training dates this year. More information on our website.

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.

Important information: WinGuard is not affected by the Log4Shell security vulnerability

Immediately after the security vulnerability in the Java library Log4j named Log4Shell (CVE-2021-44228) became known, we have investigated possible impacts on our software products and informed our integration and technology partners accordingly:

Our PSIM platform WinGuard is secure and not affected by the recently publicized Log4Shell vulnerability. Also, none of the interface modules developed by us are affected.

Information about the further development of WinGuard is contained in our Release Notes.

Further information concerning the Log4Shell vulnerability can be found in the official statement of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

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.

Allan Dickinson, Technical Manager UK at Advancis, states: “With the collaboration with our technology partners such as UVS, we can offer a comprehensive functional scope and a joint value solution for our customers.”

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.
