Electronic Physical Security System (EPSS) Replacement

April 16, 2020

The EPSS Replacement project continues to be active during COVID-19 restrictions as a Critical Infrastructure project.

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.
