Gallagher Security has announced that the company will release v8.90 of its security site management software, Command Centre on 31 May.
According to the company, the enhancements to Command Centre include facial biometrics and synchronized cardholder management, designed to simplify user experiences and improve business efficiencies.
“People are at the heart of our feature development. At the nucleus of every product enhancement is the story a customer has told us about a business problem that needs solving,” said Meredith Palmer, Chief Product Officer at Gallagher Security.
For customers seeking contactless access control options, Gallagher says that the IDEMIA VisionPass integration allows for hassle free access via facial recognition. The integration enables facial template enrollment within Command Centre and contactless facial recognition access through doors using a Morpho VisionPass reader. Gallagher highlights that Command Centre’s full suite of biometrics now offers the flexibility of facial, fingerprint or wave identification.
The company says that another pain point addressed by the Command Centre v8.90 release is the labor-intensive task of creating and updating cardholder details such as name, access group membership and mobile credentials. Gallagher’s Okta synchronization provides the solution with a REST API to provision cardholder details from Okta’s central identity platform to Command Centre.
“We are delighted to have achieved seamless cardholder synchronization with personal data protection for our customers,” added Palmer.
The company says that the v8.90 release includes other features such as Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) for Controller 7000 Single Door, its newest controller offering. This combines the localized assurance of a door access decision with the ability to scale in numbers to support the largest enterprise systems. OSDP improves interoperability among security products and ensures sites can install third-party readers to their Gallagher access control system.
