Electronic Physical Security System (EPSS) Replacement

January 6, 2020

The current Building Access control software (Picture Perfect 4) and the associated hardware devices will be replaced by a more modern EPSS (Electronic Physical Security System), integrated with the video security system, and updated non-proprietary hardware devices.

Genetec Synergis Access Control system will replace the current systems. This will allow us to integrate with the existing Genetec Video Security system towards an unified, integrated security system. Mercury M5 hardware are non-proprietary and will allow seamless replacement of our legacy hardware, with minimum disruption to campus. These devices are non-proprietary and can be configured to work with any EPSS software.
