Bi-directional integration of Gallagher and Qognify

Issue 2/3 2023 Integrated Solutions, Products & Solutions

Qognify and Gallagher announced the release of an integration between Qognify VMS and Gallagher access control.

In a world of converging technology ecosystems, siloed solutions are no longer viable; this applies in particular to physical security, where only combined information enables a comprehensive assessment of a situation as well as an appropriate and timely response. For this reason, Qognify offers a set of open interfaces that enable a seamless connection to other physical security technologies such as access control, intruder alarms or video analysis. Based on this technology, a new bi-directional integration between Qognify VMS and Gallagher access control is now available.

Depending on the end user’s workflows and preferences, either Gallagher Command Centre or Qognify VMS may be used as the leading system. Thus, the Gallagher system can display live and archive video streams from Qognify VMS. Vice versa, the Qognify VMS plugin, is able to dynamically read entity and status information (i.e. door open, door forced, etc.) from the Gallagher system.

This information can then be visualised on maps and floor plans in the Qognify VMS client. In addition, doors can be controlled (i.e., locked/unlocked) from within the Qognify VMS client, giving security personnel the ability to react quickly and appropriately to a situation without having to switch between different user interfaces.

Andreas Beerbaum, Vice President of Sales, International at Qognify, is happy about the new integration. “As an independent provider of physical security software, we attach great importance to technology partnerships that enable system integrators and end-customers to create their specific security ecosystems. The bi-directional integration of Gallagher access control is another important building block for generating joint success in project business.”

Technical Account Manager for Gallagher security - Africa, Lee Smyth comments, “Gallagher is committed to ongoing innovation with our Command Centre solution. A critical aspect of this innovation depends on building rich application programming interfaces and integration points, as ultimately, this ensures that customers can extend the site management software ecosystem in ways that suit the way they work. We are pleased to be working in partnership with Qognify VMS to be able to offer customers with an integration that further enables a solution that is customised to their business needs.”
