Unified Security Capabilities
AMAG Technology, the security solution manufacturer specializing in access control, intrusion detection, video management, policy-based identity solutions and visitor management, announces the release of two new software features that improve the functionality and reporting capabilities in Symmetry v8.1 access control software.
Symmetry Control Desk provides a targeted view of all the relevant security devices on one screen, and offers an unrivalled level of unified monitoring and incident response capability,” said AMAG Technology, Vice President of Product Marketing, Dave Ella. “We have also added Symmetry Advanced Reporting which gives users options to analyze and track almost any data, with a new reporting tool and data dictionary. It’s all about providing more information to make informed decisions about security response and business operations.”
Symmetry Control Desk
Symmetry Control Desk allows users to group together any combination of security devices, such as card readers, cameras, inputs and outputs, into new Monitor Zones, providing increased visibility to secure areas. Users can monitor the status of the devices in real time and issue commands to control security devices anywhere across the organization. Camera views are fully integrated and will automatically display on screen.
Activity and alarms within monitor zones will be displayed and actioned from the Control Desk. Using a new camera links mechanism, live, pre and post alarm recordings can all be automatically reviewed, and if required the Symmetry Alarm Workflow capability can be used to ensure response is in line with the security plan.
Symmetry Advanced Reporting
Symmetry Advanced Reporting adds the ability to create virtually any report on security data including the production of charts and graphs. A new data dictionary combines relevant data from the full Symmetry database making it straightforward for reports to be developed using the new built-in reporting engine.
Symmetry users increasingly need to mine their security data to identify anomalies for further investigation and for compliance reporting. Symmetry Advanced Reporting is designed to allow any required analysis to be carried out. For more advanced compliance reporting requirements, users can work with AMAG’s Professional Services team to generate customized reports.
