IP-Based Access Control

IP access control is the latest technology in security systems. IP access control integrates card access, alarm management, visitor management, investigation reporting, and time and attendance as part of a security management system capable of integrating with the newest eSecurity technology with wireless or network PoE hardware.



Genetec is a Canadian company that is a leader in IP-based security technology by incorporating the latest in networking information. Their primary focus is the development of software solutions to address three main security applications areas: IP access control, IP video surveillance, and IP license plate recognition.


Synergis IP-based access control is the most cost effective, flexible and user friendly security solution that incorporates automated email reporting for administration of the access control and alarm events, reducing wiring cost, easily linked to video surveillance systems under a unified database. Synergis access control solution is able to handle thousands of access events per second from all over your network. Grow your system to any size, one door at a time. Use dynamic graphical maps to quickly pinpoint doors. Benefit from Active Directory integration to automatically enroll cardholders and assign access rights. Get remote access to check up on alarms after hours. And make all the decisions about your network and hardware.

Through the Genetec Security Center's Federation feature, multiple independent Synergis systems can be unified into a single virtual system. Support for Federation is ideal for multi-site, multi-region, and city-wide access control deployments as it facilitates centralized monitoring of hundreds of remote sites from the Genetec Security Center's unified interface, the Security Desk. Whether federated or installed as a standalone system, Synergis is capable of managing systems of any size, from one to one million access points, all over an IP network.


Pinder's with their partner companies, Genetec, HID, Assa Abloy, Allegion Canada and Baron, will create an effective access control system incorporating one-card credential, eSecurity technology door hardware and the new Baron pre-wired door systems for a safe and secure environment.
