Qognify integrates with Johnson Controls Security Products

Issue 2/3 2023 Integrated Solutions, News & Events, Products & Solutions

Qognify and Johnson Controls Security Products announced an integration between their products Qognify VMS and Kantech EntraPass. The integration of both software products enables users to better understand situations based on the synchronisation of event and video data, allowing a faster and more targeted response to event-based scenarios.

For instance, ‘forced door’, ‘door held open’ and ‘clearance’ alarms from EntraPass can be displayed as events within Qognify VMS and synchronised to the associated video recording. Furthermore, these same types of system events can be visualised on maps and floor plans to enable a better situational understanding as well as to initiate door actions such as ‘unlock’ or ‘lock’ from the VMS map view.

Jeremy Howard, Vice President Physical Security Sales – Americas at Qognify, is excited about the integration and the potential it offers. "Qognify has a large install base of video platforms where the JCI Kantech EntraPass is part of the overall security eco-system. The integration turns Qognify VMS into a single pane of glass for video and EntraPass access control, allowing users to visualise and respond to common events in one single UI, without the need to implement a complex and costly PSIM solution. This allows organisations that manage, for example, retail stores or office buildings to improve the response to any physical security threat, while keeping the total costs for their security systems reasonably low.”
