Marketplace: Site Management Software, Visible Weapon Detection, and More
What are the latest products and solutions offered across the security industry? Here are a few that came over Security Management’s radar in the past month.
Enhanced Site Management Software
Gallagher Security released v8.90 of its Command Centre security site management software on 31 May, enhancing the system with people-first integrations aimed to simplify user experience and drive business efficiencies. These include a contactless access control option—IDEMIA VisionPass integration enables access via facial recognition using a Morpho VisionPass reader. The latest Command Centre version also addresses the pain point of manually creating and updating cardholder details, leveraging Okta synchronization to provision cardholder details from a central identity platform to the site management software.

Intelligent Voice-Down System
The new intelligent voice-down system from Interface is designed to automatically detect and discourage loitering and suspicious activity in the perimeter of a store or restaurant. The system uses AI-enabled cameras combined with customizable audio messages, auxiliary lighting, and sirens to detect people and vehicles loitering and warn them of a security presence and possible law enforcement action. The system utilizes multi-staged announcement progressions to ramp up the response according to the intruder’s actions, so initial responses to loitering in a parking lot will differ from the response to vandalism.
