At Intersec 2017, Galaxy Control Systems is showcasing their advanced access control solution in interactive demonstrations that represent real-life applications. Visitors to the booth (Sheikh Saeed Hall 3, Stand E40) will see System Galaxy integrated with optical turnstile and door management solutions; time and attendance products; visitor management systems; and smart card readers, among others.
“We designed the exhibit to give visitors a better picture of the many integration possibilities,” said Rick Caruthers, Executive Vice President, Galaxy Control Systems. “It’s our opportunity to showcase the innovation and technology that separates System Galaxy from the competition.”
As an open-source technology, System Galaxy has the capability to integrate with video, time and attendance, identity management and a wide variety of other data sources and can further provide and share information to strengthen the overall physical security system.
Technology partners integrated with Galaxy Control Systems at Intersec 2017 include:
- DSI – USA-based manufacturer of optical turnstile and door management solutions (http://www.dsigo.com)
- Qudra-Tech – Time and attendance systems, RFID solutions and visitor management systems (http://www.qudra-tech.com)
- Digital Concepts – Dubai-based developer of time and attendance solutions that caters to the EMEA markets (http://www.digitalconcepts.ae)
- Farpointe Data – a partner of choice for readers including the new advanced smart card-enabled readers and the newly designed Ranger long-range readers and fobs (http://www.farpointedata.com/)
Recently introduced System Galaxy features such as Advanced Port Filtering will be highlighted. There is a tremendous surge to the amount of traffic that is seen by the network caused by the rapid growth of connected devices. The new Advanced Port Filtering feature combats this problem, ensuring that system alerts will be actively monitored by the security network.
Also being shown are two mobile apps (DoorPoint and PersonPoint) that enhance the unique capabilities of System Galaxy and provide users with greater control capabilities for common functions related to facilities and people from anywhere and at any time, especially in emergency situations. Both are available for download at Android and Apple stores.
DoorPoint provides authorized security personnel with the ability to manage a facility’s doors to enhance security. Through the app, users can remotely lock, unlock and pulse doors, view door status and view activity report data from the System Galaxy access control software.
In addition, Galaxy’s new System Configurator tool for integrators will be displayed. This web-based tool allows a new dealer to develop a basic bill of materials by simply answering a few questions.
“Whether it’s an integrated solution or one of our innovative technologies, Galaxy Control System offerings are designed to put the customer first,” adds Caruthers. “It’s our most important goal.”
