System Galaxy v10.5 from Galaxy Control Systems is an update to System Galaxy, a complete, enterprise-class access control and security management solution. The flexible platform is appropriate for business, commercial, industrial government, healthcare, education, transportation, and other organizations. New features include integration capability with KONE elevator products and ASSA ABLOY DSR IP-enabled locks as well as updated support for OnSSI’s Ocularis SDK.
“Collaboration with these and other manufacturers has emerged as a significant way for Galaxy to provide customers with a more robust and fully integrated access control solution,” said Robert Laughlin, President, Galaxy Control Systems. “We’re excited about leveraging these new opportunities.”
System Galaxy offers the ability to satisfy the requirements of any credential management, access control, or security situation. With a user interface that’s easy to operate and system features that deploy in any combination, Galaxy easily fits any user.
System Galaxy offers a complete selection of in-demand features that integrate with standard and emerging technologies. Users can deploy any combination of features such as access control, alarm/event monitoring, intrusion detection, surveillance, elevator control, identification and credential management, photo imaging and badging, time and attendance, visitor management, and reporting. The security management solution scales to any size, making it suitable for single or multi-site facilities, remote sites, campus settings, and multi-national organizations.
The new integration of System Galaxy v10.5 with KONE Elevator control systems increases security while improving people flow. Galaxy Control Systems provides the card readers, access control computer, and network infrastructure while KONE supplies the elevator group controllers and control panel as well as space for installing card readers. A TCP/IP interface makes installation easy.
Utilizing a Java-based web service called Door Service Router (DSR), ASSA ABLOY DSR IP-enabled locks can quickly and efficiently communicate with System Galaxy for real-time monitoring without the need for additional door controllers.
In addition, updated support for OnSSI Ocularis VMS now ensures integration and availability of the latest features and functions.
The new integrations and updated support complement the robust capabilities and user features, scalability, and ease of installation that make System Galaxy Software a comprehensive access control and management.
Galaxy Control Systems’ System Galaxy Access Control Software provides traditional thick client, mobile device applications, and web-based thin client user interfaces on a SQL-based, virtual/host or client/server architecture. The software enables active directory support for real-time identity management, individualized identity-based door access, and audit reports for each screen view or credential holder. Additionally, the software supports all legacy Galaxy hardware and infrastructure, ensuring users continue to benefit from their investment in legacy solutions.
