MONTREAL—VMS provider Genetec in April announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with SALTO, a leading developer of wireless locking solutions, “as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to delivering an open approach to access control,” according to Genetec.
 
Through this partnership, Genetec and SALTO will offer a streamlined integration between Genetec Synergis, the IP access control solution, and the Salto SALLIS wireless technology. Synergis will allow end users to consolidate new or existing wired and wireless access control systems into one, and centralize monitoring and reporting.

Customers will also be able to manage a single cardholder and credential database without having to work with separate wireless system or duplicate credentials.

The Genetec and SALTO partnership will help users to bridge the gap between IP access control and wireless locking solutions, expand the reach of existing access control systems, and reduce the installation costs typically associated with wired solutions for doors where wireless technology makes more sense, according to Genetec.

"Both Genetec and Salto serve customers around the world and we look forward to delivering joint solutions that will respond to both local needs as well as those of multi-site and multi-national installations looking for wireless options," Jimmy Palatsoukas, senior manager of product marketing at Genetec, said in a prepared statement.

When Synergis and SALTO SALLIS locks are deployed alongside Genetec video surveillance products, it will also be possible for users to view Salto wireless lock events and alarms seamlessly linked with live or recorded video.  This gives security professionals a more complete view of their wireless installation than what is seen today with traditional access control products.
