Gallagher Access Control Profile

By Brian Rhodes, Published Jan 18, 2021, 01:00pm EST (Info+)

For decades, Gallagher has been one of New Zealand's most famous companies. Now, they are aggressively expanding into North America and, if they fulfill their plans, will have one of the largest US-based access control sales organizations. But what does Gallagher offer?

For North American dealers I am not sure how the adoption of a proprietary access control solution from the Southern Hemisphere makes any sense when there are so many North American products that address all market segments quite well.......... just sayin'.

I like the optional cloud and on-premise availability. But I would like more information on how the onsite controllers communicate then with the cloud. Do they initiate connections from the site to the cloud service, precluding the need to setup port forwarding and have static IP addresses? Or do port-forwarding rules have to be created at the site so the cloud (or off premise) database server to reach the controllers?

This has been often overlooked by EACS companies when trying to go "cloud" hosted, as needing to do port forwarding at the remote site makes it more difficult and costly for the smaller sites, and can be a non-starter for IT departments in larger companies.

Does this mean you can buy direct now instead of through IPVideo Corp?

Gallagher has always been direct to certified integrators (in the US) as far as I know. We have been selling it for about 6 years.

Didn't think you could even get it through distro.

Agreed it is all direct, and I am also a reseller who is using this with multiple Federal clients nationwide. Their PIV support is excellent, and in general I have very few complaints with their stuff.

Gallagher confirmed the company does not sell through distribution and that support is limited via trained dealers.
