Genetec's New 'Unified' Appliance

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Sep 24, 2014

Genetec has announced a 'unified security appliance', touting the ability to deploy video and access.

But what is so interesting or different compared to their historic 'unified' / integrated video and access software.

In this note, we break down the new support added and how it impacts Genetec's positioning.

Hello,

I'm working for Genetec and I just wanted to mention that the SV-32 has the ability to connect directly to the variety of supported IP door controllers without the need of the SMC (Synergis Master Controller).

Also, the rest of the SV line (SV-16 and SV-PRO) also offers unified capabilities and supports our access control and video line.

The major difference with the SV-32 compared to the rest of the SV line is its ability to connect directly our supported IP door controllers.

Hello Francis:

The SV-32 Unified connects directly to the Mercury controllers mentioned above. Being able to directly connect to 'other' controllers is not a unique difference of the SV-32 Unified. For example, we conducted our Genetec Access Test with an HID Edge connected directly to an SV-16.

Also, the SMC website shows the need to use SMC with the (IP) Axis A1001:

If this is incorrect, please clarify.

The main difference is that in addition to HID, the SV-32 can connect directly to Mercury EP, Axis A1001 and IP wireless locks without the need to use the SMC.

I like the design, the product, the solution and we all know that Genetec is working great...for me it's a win! Let's see the price ;)

My understanding is that the Genetec SMC no longer supports direct connections to the Mercury MR modules. The only way to do that today is via the Genetec SV-32 (maybe other SV appliances too). The Genetec web site seems to confirm this. See the architecture overviews for the SMC and the Mercury hardware.

I've seen that too on the architecture overview for the SMC on the Genetec website and am quite surprised that no one from Genetec has disclaimed nor confirmed this as of yet
