Galaxy Control Systems has added ASSA ABLOY to its list of partners by completing an integration with the security manufacturer’s IP-enabled solutions. The combination of System Galaxy and WiFi and PoE locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands Corbin Russwin and Sargent “will allow end users and integrators to harness the power of these industry-leading solutions at reduced expense,” according to a joint press release.
“Wireless and IP-based technologies reduce installation time and material cost to increase installers’ profit on each deployment and deliver a lower total cost of ownership for end users,” said Rick Caruthers, executive VP of Galaxy Control Systems, in the announcement. “This latest integration ensures that System Galaxy will support industry-leading IP solutions from the world leader in access control and locking technologies.”
Here’s more from the joint press release from Galaxy Control Systems and ASSA ABLOY:
ASSA ABLOY’s WiFi locks connect to System Galaxy through a facility’s 802.11b/g/n WiFi network, and the IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) locks connect to System Galaxy through the Local Area Network (LAN) utilizing a single Ethernet cable for both power and data.
“This integration between System Galaxy and the ASSA ABLOY suite of IP-enabled access control products ensures that System Galaxy customers can use existing or planned network infrastructure to expand their system easily and at a significant savings versus traditional solutions,” said Martin Huddart, president of ASSA ABLOY Americas’ access and egress hardware group.
System Galaxy, a scalable, enterprise-class access control and management solution, seamlessly integrates security and building management functions. Additional features include active directory support to enable real-time identity management, individualized identity-based door access, and the ability to generate specific reports for each screen view or credential holder.
Data can be shared with other systems such as time and attendance, visitor management, time clocks, parking garages and personal messaging. System Galaxy accommodates unlimited users and is also accessible from mobile web browsers, and is designed for backward compatibility with all legacy Galaxy systems.
