Tyco Security Products to showcase purpose-built portfolio at ASIS 2013

Addition of Exacq Technologies VMS portfolio, new HD cameras, and targeted access control solutions offer customers better options for their specific security objectives


Westford, MA – September 18, 2013 – Tyco Security Products, part of Tyco, the world’s largest pure-play fire protection and security company, will be showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of purpose-built access control and video solutions in Booth 305 at the 59th Annual ASIS Seminar & Exhibits.

The newly acquired Exacq Technologies will make its debut in the Tyco Security Products booth as further evidence of the company’s recognition of the widely diverse way in which customers use their solutions. Exacq’s intuitive portfolio of event-driven VMS solutions – exacqVision - is the ideal complement to the company’s American Dynamics VMS solution – VideoEdge and victor - that is better suited for those who use their video solutions in an active monitoring environment. These user-centric offerings cater to fundamentally different user needs, which the company identifies as a gap in the market today.

“The needs of today’s security end user are so diverse that the assumption that a one size fits all approach meets the requirements of every customer is no longer valid,” said Mike Ryan, president of Tyco Security Products. “We’re looking forward to unveiling this thoughtful approach to our customers and prospective customers at the ASIS event so they will understand that they do not have to make sacrifices to achieve their very specific security objectives.”

This focus on user-specific objectives is also addressed by the vast offering of American Dynamics IP cameras that will be on display. The new Illustra 625 PTZ is designed with exceptional speed and ultra-low latency performance for applications where locating, tracking and zooming in on subject details is critical. For settings where discretion is of the utmost importance, the Illustra Compact Mini-Domes offer affordable, high-performance IP video that delivers 720p and 1080p resolutions for crystal clear images.

The purpose-built philosophy is not new to the company which markets distinct access control solutions to different customers globally. The latest releases from three of those differentiated solutions – Kantech, Software House, and Elpas - will be on display at the booth.

One of the highlights for Kantech, with its intuitive approach to security, is the Intevo Compact, an entry-level version of its innovative, easy to deploy integrated security platform that integrates access control, IP video and intrusion for small to medium size enterprises. Intuitive by nature, Intevo can easily be managed by users who are not full time security professionals using the newly introduced EntraPass Go mobile app and EntraPass Web web interface.

Software House will showcase its new single-reader version of the popular iSTAR Edge controller. This new controller utilizes Power over Ethernet (PoE) to leverage existing network infrastructure, which dramatically reduces installation costs – costs that can quickly get exorbitant for a security team looking for an enterprise solution. A new version of the industry-leading security and event management platform, C•CURE 9000 v2.2, features a host of enhancements that simplify the management of personnel access, including features such as credential deactivation, custom clearances, and activating events based on activity.
