Key benefits Improve organizational efficiencies, reduce errors and cut costs. Automate and streamline processes with greater system integrations. Customize services or applications that meet unique requirements. Develop lightweight or custom workflows to improve procedures. Extended Software Development Kit Synch more data between systems and boost operational efficiencies Increasing automation and synchronization of data between security, IT and business systems can help boost operational efficiencies in any organization. Security Center has a variety of development tools available that allow Genetec partners and customers to expand their security platform by integrating additional systems or adding new custom functionalities. All these development tools are built on the same core functions, providing access to all core technologies within Security Center. Therefore, video surveillance, access control, intrusion detection and license plate recognition function calls are all available through a single software development kit (SDK). Key features Realize flexible third-party integration and data sharing Through the use of the SDK, new services or applications can be developed to synchronize data between Genetec's solutions and other business systems that remains transparent to the user. The SDKs provide an extensive list of programming functions to extract access control and video information in real time, as well as a variety of configuration functions. These functionalities facilitate the sharing of data with multiple external databases or systems such as building management systems (BMS), human resource management systems (HRMS), enterprise resource planning systems (ERP), intrusion and fire detection panels, and external visitor management software, among many more. This contributes to cross-departmental efficiency gains by avoiding the duplication of data entry activities. Improve operations by developing new custom tasks Although the default Security Center tasks have extensive functionalities, end users may require scaled- down versions of a specific task to match their internal and possibly simpler workflows. The ability to add new custom tasks linked to third-party systems also takes integration one step further, allowing organizations to work from a single application when managing multiple systems. Save time with dynamic synchronization and automation Use of the SDK can enable an increased level of automation within a company. For example, removal of an employee from the HR database can automatically trigger the disabling of the employee's access rights in the physical access control system. Through this type of account linking, a user can remove the current practice of having to manually disable the employee's profile in both the HR and security systems, helping to save time, eliminate errors and ultimately, strengthen security.
