Maxxess will be at Intersec 2019 in Dubai January 20-21 (stand SA-H12) showcasing its latest advances in corporate risk reduction, improved people management, and smarter hospitality access solutions—including new releases in its eFusion and Ambit solutions.
The latest version of the VisitorPoint module within the eFusion security management platform will be showcased, offering new streamlined functions for efficient people and visitor management. Harnessing current advances in cloud computing and mobile communications, VisitorPoint is being used at premises from hotels and campuses to corporate headquarters. It allows the whole process of visitor management to be streamlined.
For example, VisitorPoint lets guests’ phones be used as access credentials, making it an alternative to room keys in the hospitality sector. Compatibility of the system with ASSA Abloy Hospitality products has proven to be particularly popular with hotels. With the latest version of VisitorPoint, users can view pre-registered visitors in advance; manage and sign-in large groups in seconds; book meeting rooms; manage visitor car parking; and automate notifications and messaging.
Now organizations can go even further in streamlining their people and diary management processes, thanks to integration with Outlook and Google calendars. A new VIP feature allows automatically tailored welcomes for specified guests and/or groups and a QR Scan App allows visitors and VIPS to be immediately verified. In addition, a new self-service kiosk will be unveiled at the show for positioning in hotels and high-end corporate lobbies.
Meanwhile, with its versatile, open-technology software, eFusion is proving a practical alternative to costly or complex conventional PSIM solutions. It offers the advantages of a modular, building block approach and gives users the freedom to integrate, customize, and adapt their security systems to meet both current needs and emerging risks. Ensuring compatibility with leading surveillance, intruder, access, and fire detection systems, eFusion now supports more than 60 off-the-shelf integrations and several important additions are confirmed for the show.
These latest integrations include IP intercom hardware from Jaquies, the mobile phone app GuardPoint, and the Metra locker system hardware.
“The eFusion platform allows legacy systems to be transformed into a smart, open infrastructure and extends the life of equipment. Our technology is proving particularly popular because it gives users all the advantages of advanced PSIM without the associated cost or complexity,” said Lee Copland, Managing Director, Maxxess EMEA.
eFusion can be scaled from one site to multiple sites globally and it can connect stand-alone systems for easy upgrades such as retrofits with existing hardware.
Also on show at Intersec 2019 will be Ambit. It allows security controllers to communicate directly with both individuals and groups and to monitor the safety of everyone on-site (or on multiple sites), for example employees, residents, visitors, or contractors. Now Ambit users will benefit from direct notification of a wide range of risks thanks to a new integration with the NC4 incident alert service.
Ambit is a patented, leading-edge technology and two-way, private, managed messaging service that brings a broader, more personal, and intuitive level of security to today’s modern workforce both inside and away from the workplace. Ambit uses the power and versatility of smart mobile devices to connect an organization to its employees, wherever they are located.
NC4 monitors risks and issues alerts in real time, covering potential threats ranging from terrorist incidents to weather events, from civil disruption to cyber-attacks. With this new integration, as N4C alerts arise they will be filtered by proximity/relevance and directly sent to Ambit users.
Visitors to the Maxxess stand will also learn how Ambit’s latest life-saving technology comes with a choice of applications tailored to the user’s needs. For example, it can allow lone-worker monitoring; courtesy communications and remote escorting after-hours; panic alarm features; and individualized messaging during incidents. It can help security teams coordinate and work more effectively with emergency responders too as well as improving the efficiency of day to day operations.
“We are well positioned to further capitalize on major infrastructure projects across the region such as hotels and leisure. The demand for increased operational efficiencies across the MENA region has seen many organizations look to automate tasks and at the same time mitigate against the potential for human error. This is evident in the demand we’re seeing for streamlined visitor management, the elimination of keys, and better optimized workforces across security and facilities management functions,” said Copland.
“And as real-world applications for artificial intelligence become a reality, we are continuing to collaborate with our world leading video surveillance partners to bring these advanced analytics into the eFusion platform. Meanwhile, we will continue to support our customers in complying with revised fire and safety codes and new security regulations.”
