OnSSI continues to expand its market position to be a PSIM provider. This week, they shared a new video that overviews their PSIM solution with an example in the education market. Essentially, their Ocularis software will provide PSIM functionality and work with their and other security systems.
While OnSSI certainly has an advantage with its existing customer base and their partnership with Lenel, the challenge will be for OnSSI to expand the third party support that current PSIM providers already have.
Note: the OnSSI video is being hosted on my YouTube account. OnSSI sent me a link to an executable. I extracted the video and uploaded it. I am happy to do this for any vendor as it is quick and makes it much easier for others to access and see the video. I recommend the use of YouTube or other video sharing sites.
[Update 2012: OnSSI has still not developed 3rd party VMS integrations nor does it integrate other systems into its client, making it a fake PSIM at best.]
