Gallagher Security was selected by GardaWorld to deliver integrated security solutions for the company’s new headquarters in Montreal, Canada.

Integrated security

According to Gallager, GardaWorld sought a security partner capable of integrating with the leading technologies of the day – and the unimagined ones of tomorrow.

Access control via facial recognition was at the top of the company’s wishlist and Gallagher’s integration with IDEMIA’s VisionPass played a crucial role in enabling this.

“With other solutions, you need separate systems and separate integrations – but because VisionPass is all run within Gallagher’s Command Centre, it’s so much easier,” said Frederic Kustcher, Electronic Security System Administrator and Technician for GardaWorld.

The company highlights that this integration, along with Gallagher’s suite of biometric tools, including IDEMIA Morpho Wave, enables GardaWorld’s staff to move freely throughout the headquarters using facial recognition and hand and fingerprint biometric technologies, eliminating the hassle and security risk of lost ID cards.

Additional security

Additionally, Gallagher’s integrated security with Nedap provides an access solution for GardaWorld’s underground garage, which features a steep slope that makes traditional card reader access difficult.

Gallagher says that its integration with Nedap enabled GardaWorld to provide access stickers that affix to vehicles ensuring smoother and safer access to the garage.

Utilizing Gallagher’s visitor management tools, the company says that GardaWorld were able to simplify entry for visitors while ensuring the rest of the building remains safely restricted.

“GardaWorld has created a high-tech building that showcases innovation and working closely together,” said Gallagher Security’s Technical Business Development Manager, Nour Muqatash.

“We’ve been able to provide a seamless security experience, prioritizing safety and convenience for their staff and visitors.”


“Even now that construction is finished, when I need something, I receive my order within a few days. It’s a nice feature of working with Gallagher,” stated Kustcher.

He added that part of the reason GardaWorld was interested in Gallagher was so they could do everything under one system with integrated security, for when they expand with more locations in the future.

“When we need perimeter, access control and flexibility for our sites, it’s just easier to do under one big system,” he said.
