PCS security technology – systematic all the way through.
At this year’s security at Essen, the leading trade fair for security technology, PCS will present innovative products and solutions for the sophisticated protection of businesses, incorporating technologies such as RFID, video surveillance or biometrics as in its INTUS PS palm vein recognition system for high-security areas.
At this year’s security, the leading trade fair for security technology, PCS Systemtechnik GmbH will present innovative products and solutions for the sophisticated protection of businesses, incorporating technologies such as RFID, video surveillance or biometrics as in its INTUS PS palm vein recognition system for high-security areas. PCS will also premiere an NFC-based solution where access authorizations for doors are transmitted via mobile phone.
The company’s PCS Consulting division with its longstanding experience in project management will be present to advice enterprises on the certification as “Known Consignors” or the implementation of complex security systems.
PCS will share its stand in Hall 3 with five PCS software partners showcasing solutions for personnel, service and object planning (specifically addressing security service providers), fuel and cafeteria data collection, visitor administration, elevator control and vehicle surveillance as well as graphical or mobile security control centers taking advantage of video surveillance, alarm messaging and locking plans.
Access control from standard to specialized.
PCS’s security expertise is based on three pillars: 175,000 INTUS time & attendance recording and access control terminals installed throughout every industry; ID card management and project implementation for enterprises of all sizes since 1970; and its internationally award-winning high-tech products marketed under the “INTUS” brand.
PCS combines RFID access readers, offline terminals or long-range readers in an integrated total solution complete with video surveillance to implement enterprise-wide access control, to give just one example. Fire doors, airlocks, rolling gates, staff lockers or parking lots may be integrated as well. INTUS PS, PCS’s biometric palm vein recognition system, can be deployed for high-security areas such as data centers, nuclear power plants or laboratories. And PCS’s DEXICON software enhances the hardware with specialized security functions such as an emergency list, two-person access control and anti-passback.
NFC to open doors by smartphone.
PCS will for the first time present an NFC-based access control solution: Access authorizations are downloaded to an employee’s smartphone. Doors protected by INTUS PegaSys terminals can then be opened via the phone’s NFC interface. Deploying NFC in access control will enable new solutions. Examples include service representatives who unexpectedly need access authorizations for a building, or branch offices, where a branch manager could create and manage ID cards for their staff on their own using a smartphone.
Palm vein recognition for high-security areas.
PCS will demonstrate at the security how INTUS PS palm vein recognition can be used to control an access airlock. Trade fair visitors will be encouraged to experience first-hand how simple and secure high-security access control can be today.
INTUS PS palm vein recognition is an ideal solution for every area or building worthy of protection, from data centers, executive suites or company premises requiring maximum security and already protected by numerous INTUS PS installations to assets perceived as particularly valuable such as exquisitely stocked wine cellars or modern day care centers, where INTUS PS has also been proving itself for some time now.
DEXICON plus video documentation, another building block in the security chain.
Video surveillance is becoming increasingly popular as a means to enhance the protection of particularly vulnerable doors. In the event of an alarm, DEXICON with video documentation stores up to 99 images before and after the alarm was triggered. The number of images recorded and the time recording starts are user-definable via video profiles. DEXICON automatically retrieves the sequences from the integrated SeeTec Enterprise video surveillance application.
Video surveillance for various danger zones.
Video surveillance solutions are increasingly in demand as vandalism is rising, security zones must be monitored and various other areas require protection against risks and dangers.
From October 2012, PCS will be offering SeeTec 5.4.4, the latest version of the powerful video surveillance solution now integrated with the CONVISION CC-8xxx series of megapixel cameras. In addition to standard features such as video management and surveillance, SeeTec 5.4.4 excels with very powerful and highly adaptable alarm scenarios allowing different responses to events for each camera.
The solution not only provides surveillance images, but also visualizations fed by the cameras and by digital inputs in site plans to clearly lay out status information as for the purposes of a control center. SeeTec license plate recognition combines the convenience of automatically opening gates or barriers with access control powered by video surveillance so that only authorized persons will be allowed to drive onto a company’s premises.
Video surveillance controlled from mobile devices.
The SeeTec MobileClient now supports Android smartphones in addition to the iPhone and iPad. Users can also conveniently access a SeeTec installation and camera images via WLAN or 3G – for example a plant security officer while performing an inspection round of a site. The SeeTec MobileClient allows you to process alarms, selectively access live or archive footage and control the software buttons SeeTec provides to switch lights on or off, to use I/O modules for opening doors within the system etc.
For large-scale video installations, the SeeTec Enterprise Edition offers rich optional functionality in addition to the well-known standard features including distributed installations with any number of servers, OPC connectivity, people or vehicle counting, cash register connectivity and the visualization of logistics processes with an interface to inventory management.
The new generation of INTUS terminals: colorful and communicative.
The new INTUS 5600 terminals and the compact INTUS 6200 information station with its projected capacitive touchscreen and color display will take center stage in the presentations to be given by PCS and its partners. For more information on the new INTUS terminals see
PCS experts in dialog.
PCS experts will discuss current security issues in the forum held in Hall 6 at the security.
On Wednesday, 26 September 2012, at 11:30 am Senior Consultant Wolfgang Rackowitz will talk about „Unique personal authentication in sensitive security zones.“
Thorsten Keller, Key Account Manager for SAP subsystems, will address the topic of “Air security – access control and video surveillance in the dispatch area. Security concepts for the certification as a ‘Known Consignor’” on Thursday, 27 September 2012, at 11:30 am.
