ORLANDO, Fla.—Access control and video monitoring supplier Sielox at the ASIS International conference here on Sept. 20 announced the formation of a new managed services company called Sielox24Seven.

The new company is the product of a 20-year relationship Sielox has had with Excel Security Corp. All the services Excel used to provide for Sielox as its technology partner will now be handled by Sielox24Seven.

"Our former business partner has been using the Sielox product for the last 20 years for access control in a managed environment. They've been managing access control for over a thousand customers in the New York metro area. They've also been doing hosted video for a similar time frame. That company does a host of services—they're a guard services company, a cleaning company, a company that sells and installs access control. The managed division has been separated and has now become Sielox24Seven," Sielox president and CEO Karen Evans said at a press conference at ASIS. "We will be offering the Sielox24Seven managed, monitored and hosted services to our entire channel throughout the U.S. and abroad. Only current and future Sielox business partners will be able to utilize this service and offer this solution to their customers."

According to a Sielox release, the managed services company will allow business partners to market Sielox24Seven services to their end users "without the development, investment, implementation and maintenance of a remote managed access control system for either business partner or the customer." Such savings on time and capital investment can lead to improved RMR, according to the release. Services provide by Sielox24Seven include access control, video, remote doorman, time and attendance, key control, visitor management, credentials/card management, background checks and detailed reporting and billing.
