Available integrations for access control
Open software platforms let you integrate with other business apps and tools. This is beneficial if you want to streamline your operations and automate processes across your connected building systems. Genea offers a few cloud-based integrations, but in many cases you’re limited to the products Genea already offers for overtime HVAC, submeter billing, and visitor management. Because Genea relies on non-proprietary hardware, you may encounter additional limitations while attempting to integrate with your readers and controllers. For organizations looking to add video surveillance to Genea Sequr access control, you’ll need to use the specific providers Genea integrates with, or operate the VMS as a disparate system.
Unlike other access control companies, Openpath is built with fully open architecture for superior interoperability. The open API and mobile SDKs allow you to seamlessly integrate with the tools and apps you use to run your business. Openpath partners with leading technology companies for video surveillance, including Cisco Meraki, Camio, Rhombus Systems, Milestone, and Ava, plus tenant and visitor management, user management, gym management and productivity tools to create a powerful integrated building system. With an extensive list of native integrations that work right out of the box, Openpath gives you greater flexibility in customizing your security and safety solutions to your unique needs.
Secure and compliant access control systems
When it comes to protecting your building, safeguarding your data is a top concern. Mobile credentials, like those offered by Genea and Openpath, can't be cloned, making them a safer alternative to keycards and fobs. Cloud-based access control platforms with end-to-end encryption offer enhanced security measures. Because mobile credentials also store personal information, your access control system should meet any compliance standards your industry requires.
Openpath is Privacy Shield certified, as well as fully GDPR, CCPA, and SOC 2 compliant, and can help businesses meet HIPAA and PCI physical security requirements. In addition, Openpath hardware is UL 294 and FCC compliant, meets European and Canadian standards, and the readers are IP65 rated.
