Main Functionalities

Control Center

With events that can occur as a one-off, or simultaneously, it’s crucial to have an overview of what is happening and where.

The Solution

Alarm procedures are tailored to your individual needs, allowing you to assign a priority characteristic and follow-up action through a pop-up screen on the administrator’s workstation. Supported by an interactive floorplan and camera images, you can see ‘live’ what is going on and where whilst saving and reviewing these images afterward.

How can a Control Center functionality benefit my facility?

  • Alarm distribution: Option of different types of alarm procedures: security alarm, technical alarm, general alarm.
  • Alarm actions: You can set which actions you want to combine, for example:
    • Emergency response card authorization.
    • Burglar alarm camera preferences & automatic door locking.
    • Description prompt when alarm activated for situation overview.
    • The guard knows exactly which action(s) must be performed before the alarm can be reset.
