Genetec Access Control - What Happened to the SMC?

By Ethan Ace, Published Sep 30, 2012, 08:00pm EDT (Info+)

While most view Genetec as a VMS company, they have offered an electronic access control platform, named Synergis for years. However, with slow development relative to Omnicast and Security Center, how committed are they to access? This is perhaps best illustrated by the status of their Synergis Master Controller, announced over a year ago, which promised to improve their access capabilities, but is still not in production.
