Integrated electronic security systems

June 2003 Integrated Solutions

The Advisor Master from GE Interlogix is an electronic security system, with both alarm and access control fully integrated. This complete family of control panels, keypads, card readers and accessories is designed for commercial applications ranging from office to government buildings, banks, post offices, supermarkets, distribution centres and many other locations.

Through the integration of alarm and access control, the Advisor Master allows one to not only signal a burglar at night but also safeguard employees and assets during the day, resulting in security seven days a week, 24 hours a day, every day.

A security system will have to last for several years and should be compatible with the latest technologies, such as biometrics, CCTV and IP networking. The Advisor Master is a truly scaleable system that allows the user to start small and add new expanders, without replacing the initial equipment. Its optional intelligent user modules support a large number of card formats and can handle over 65 000 cardholders.


The Advisor Master is designed like a toolbox, with macro logic equations, event flags, alarm and door groups and up to 255 freely programmable outputs to allow the installer to meet the end-user's needs and mould the technology into effective, reliable security measures.

Pressure on reducing costs is increasing every day. Because both alarm and access control are integrated, choosing the Advisor Master means choosing one installation cost, one maintenance cost and one installer to talk to in case of problems. Furthermore, the Advisor Master is a commercial system using standard components that many installers are able to service and support.
