By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 21, 2017

Genetec's cloud everything expansion continues, with their announcement of Synergis SaaS edition, joining their cloud video offering Stratocast, cloud LPR, cloud federation and more (see Genetec Cloud Tested).

Two years ago, the company released CloudLink access appliances, which despite its name, was missing 'cloud' functionality. With Synergis SaaS, the company rounds out the offering.

Based on a discussion with Genetec, inside we examine:

  • Synergis SaaS Key Features
  • How It Integrates With Premise Locks Using CloudLink
  • Which Locks And Controllers Are Supported
  • Federation With Other Genetec Platforms
  • How Synergis SaaS Compares To Competitors

Read the full details inside.
