Middleton, Manchester, United Kingdom, 2011/09/16 - RISCO Group, a leading provider of integrated security solutions, has been selected as a finalist for two of the prestigious Security Excellence Awards 2011 and nominated twice in one category.
RISCO Group is nominated twice for the highly regarded 'Integrated Security Solution of the Year' Award, based on two separate projects. RISCO's nomination for the award is based on its ground-breaking SynopSYS Integrated Security & Building Management PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) software. In addition, RISCO Group is also a finalist for the 'Security Training Initiative of the Year' award.
The two Integrated Security Solution nominations are:
1. Concept Smoke Screen uses SynopSYS Integrated Security & Building Management software, installed to secure a prestigious UK jewellery chain, which utilises RISCO Group’s ProSYSTM intruder alarm panel at the very heart of the solution.
Concept Smoke Screen chose RISCO Group’s ProSYS™ Integrated Security System with SynopSY Integrated Security & Building Management Platform as the integrated solution that met all current and future requirements. SynopSYS Integrated Security & Building Management enables remote control and real-time monitoring of the devices located in all 100+ branches, each with its own structure and operating hours. The platform’s user-friendly interface with simple definitions allows for fast and simple project setup and operation and is extremely flexible, its open platform allowing for easy integration not only with intrusion detection systems, but also with access control, video monitoring, fire systems, as well as HVAC, lighting, and elevator control, providing a modular and scalable solution that caters to any dynamic natured company.
2. RISCO’s SynopSYS Integrated Security & Building Management software controls and monitors security devices across the new state-of-the-art campus at East Surrey College; whilst also demonstrating its true open non- proprietary architecture with 3rd party integration.
ADT, the integrator at East Surrey College chose RISCO Group’s SynopSYS Integrated Security & Building Management Software as the solution that met all requirements and its graphical user interface displays the real time status of all security devices installed on the main campus via intuitive synoptic maps.
SynopSYS Integrated Security & Building Management is managed from a single user interface installed on a dedicated PC located in the Facilities Managers office. The system enables the Facilities Manager to monitor and control the campus’s security system containing over 400 intruder detectors. Using SynopSYS, the Facilities Manager can identify and navigate to tripped detectors, as well as quickly locate open doors and windows. SynopSYS is extremely flexible, its open platform allowing for easy integration not only with intrusion detection systems, but also with access control, video monitoring, fire systems, as well as HVAC, lighting, and elevator control.
