Gallagher Security releases Command Centre v8.10 site management software

The newest version of an iconic access control and site management system looks set to revolutionise both the operator and user experience. Gallagher Security has released Command Centre v8.10, the latest version of its  site management software, with a range of features and enhancements that simplify and improve operation.

Improvements to site plans reduce information overload for busy or complex sites by introducing progressive disclosure – the ability to zoom in to reveal more information.

It’s now easier to create a site plan that includes all floors in the building and easily navigate between them, while new site plan privileges provide greater control over the level of information to which operators are exposed.

Integration with IDEMIA MorphoWave Compact allows users to be identified with a wave of their hand.

This high-level biometric integration delivers faster, more secure biometric access while simplifying the collection and management of biometric data and access rights and preventing duplication and synchronisation issues.

Gallagher’s Mobile Connect app can now be used to open both Gallagher and SALTO Bluetooth doors with Command Centre v8.10.

The SALTO credential has been combined with the Gallagher credential to retain a single mobile credential for each user in Command Centre. Using a single credential and app to open doors creates a simpler experience for end users and is easier for operators to manage on a day-to-day basis.

Car park management

The newest release introduces car park management, making it easy to manage and configure parking allocation. Site plan functionality provides detailed oversight, ensuring car park spaces are used efficiently.

Improvements to the Inbound Events REST API allow Command Centre to receive external events from third party systems to generate alarms, view alarm instructions, provide alarm indications on site plans, generate notifications and run reports in Command Centre.

This new release builds on Gallagher’s ongoing commitment to design and manufacture security technology that protects people, places and assets across the world.

As is the case with all Gallagher version releases, a wide range of minor enhancements that improve existing functionality are included. Gallagher offers a software maintenance programme which allows customers the opportunity to upgrade to every new version of Command Centre upon release.

Adopting the latest technology as it’s released helps to ensure customers stay ahead of emerging threats and new vulnerabilities, thereby reducing their cyber risk, enhancing system performance and guaranteeing continued compliance with Government standards.
