Genetec has added live dashboards, enhanced privacy protection features and a brand-new map-driven mobile app in the newest version of Security Centre, the company’s platform that unifies video surveillance, access control, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), communications, and analytics.

Security Centre 5.8 will enable users to create custom dashboards that will display real-time data, such as video feeds, alarms, reports and charts in a way that is meaningful to them and their specific job function (security, operations, IT etc.). Users can set up their dashboards using point-and-click tools, and instantly combine data from the entire Genetec portfolio (video, access control, ALPR, etc.) in one screen.

Security Centre 5.8 will also introduce a new mobile app to provide operators access to their Security Centre system when they are on the move. In addition to recording incidents, accessing nearby video, access control, and ALPR devices as well as sharing video from their phones to Security Centre, the new mobile app will let operators share their location with colleagues in the operations centre, send in-app messages and share live and recorded video through an intuitive map-oriented interface.

Additionally, Security Centre 5.8 will introduce a new Security Score feature to track each system’s compliance with hardening guidelines, firmware availability and updates, password strength, as well as several other dimensions of cybersecurity. Available through the built-in System Health dashboard, the Security Score will measure individual cybersecurity processes and verify that they are followed by the system. This will enable users to get a better understanding of the cyber security risks they face and enable them to take the necessary steps to harden their system.

With the new KiwiVision Camera Integrity Monitor feature, the system will also automatically detect potential camera position changes, loss of image quality or tampering, and alert administrators immediately. This allows them to get ahead of problems and take the necessary corrective action immediately, rather than wait to find out there is a problem when they need footage and it is not available. 


The new version of Security Centre will also feature new privacy protection layers to help customers comply with global privacy regulations such as GDPR. Building on the patented dynamic blurring and encryption technology in KiwiVision Privacy Protector, which is now included at no cost for all Genetec Advantage customers, Security Centre will help users define and control who has access to sensitive data and footage, without slowing down investigations and incident response.
