Torrance, CA – AMAG Technology, an access control, IP video and intrusion detection system (IDS) provider, announces the release of Symmetry™ v7.0.1 Security Management System. This feature-rich release builds on the extensive v7.0 software with new modules, features and dynamic enhancements that significantly improve functionality, reliability, security and compatibility. All Symmetry software suites, including Business, Professional, Enterprise, Global and Homeland Security Editions, and all optional modules are now available in v7.0.1. This simplifies the Symmetry product offering and allows end users to easily upgrade to the newest version.
“We are excited to launch our security management solution at this 7.0.1 version, giving our customers a straightforward growth path for the future,” said AMAG Technology, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Matt Barnette. “Symmetry now supports the latest Windows operating systems and databases including 64 bit variants, offers a new look and feel by incorporating the Microsoft Ribbon bar menu for usability, and leverages .NET architecture for maximum performance.”
Symmetry v7.0.1 also supports the fully integrated access control and Intrusion Detection System (IDS) capability in the commercial version, providing a one stop shop for end-users looking for a complete solution. Formerly this functionality was only available in the Homeland Security Edition. In addition, v7.0.1 supports the new Javelin card reader family, which operates either as standard readers or as fully functional, intelligent alarm keypads to provide the IDS capability when used with v7 or higher.
This version of Symmetry redefines the way licensing is achieved. Symmetry Video Management now comes built-in. With v7.0.1, card reader licenses and IP video integrations, cameras or 3rd party video systems, can be added as required, providing easy security system expansion when needed.
Symmetry v7.0.1 fully supports the new Visualizer range of encoders, AMAG’s next generation encoder technology, that deliver a high performance, seamless video solution for use with analog or IP cameras.
A new Active Directory Single Sign-On software option has been introduced to allow system operators to access Symmetry using authentication with Microsoft Active Directory.
Symmetry Global enhancements in v7.0.1 include new categories of alarms to determine alarm types. Colors, alarm sounds and a new prioritization system improve Global alarm handling, and simplified alarm acknowledgement for Global systems improves productivity for system operators.
A new safety roll call (muster) module has been added to reflect the expanded scale of many Symmetry installations and includes exit time features for installations that do not use exit card readers. A muster can be started from any proper card reader using key commands, and from a fire alarm input if the system user requires it.
More overall improvements to the software include:
Symmetry to node communications is now certified to the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2
New alarm routing option by device category
All versions support the latest Windows OS including 32 and 64 bit variants of Windows 2008 and SQL 2008
Internet based software registration is available during installation
Extended alarm management with new workflow module
Automated task management features improves efficiency
