Gallagher Security adds Full-HD VMS solution to Command Centre integrations

Gallagher Security has extended the range of video management systems (VMS) which can integrate into its ubiquitous access and control solution. EyeLynx Limited has developed a plug-in to integrate its SharpView network video recorder with the Gallagher Command Centre. This integration allows security managers operating a Gallagher Command Centre for site control to view the high-end recording capabilities of SharpView all in one place.

Security operators can respond swiftly and appropriately to any security threats through the real-time display of outputs from complementary security and site management solutions defined uniquely for their site.

SharpView specifically offers full-resolution recording and remote monitoring from an unlimited number of HD CCTV cameras. It’s in use at high-security water, utilities and education sites, bringing praise from the Metropolitan Police Service for its video evidence that’s sharp enough even at night for full facial recognition.

Jason Boyce, strategic business development manager at Gallagher, told Risk UK: “This integration offers a razor-sharp Full-HD recording capability to site managers with Command Centre.”

SharpView can record alarms from other security devices, such as intruder, fire and ANPR sensors, while EyeLynx also offers a radar that’s capable of identifying predatory vehicles up to 700 metres away.

EyeLynx’s CEO Jay Patel added: “We’re excited to have integrated SharpView into the Gallagher environment and look forward to collaborating on sites where both of our solutions are specified. Collectively, we’re looking to put site managers in total command of security threats and help cut costs, increase efficiency and simplify the process.”
