IP Access Control, Intelligent Lighting and Audio Solutions
Netgenium is an award winning manufacturer of solutions that take advantage of the IP network. The company was formed by a group of Network Engineers who realised that IP Convergence was capable of much more than just voice and video. They have been pioneering in their industry, and were the first company to power industry standard locking hardware from Power over Ethernet (PoE).
Netgenium now specialise in a number of areas based around access control systems and intelligent building environments. Their portfolio consists of:
- IP PoE Physical Access Control (Lock Controllers, Wiegand Readers)
- IP PoE Intelligent Audio solutions (Speakers, Audio Gateways, Induction Loops)
- IP PoE Intelligent Lighting Solutions (LED Lighting, Power and Lighting Controls)
IP PoE Physical Access Control
The Netgenium range of Lock Controllers and Wiegand Readers are designed from the ground up, with no legacy bus architecture. The Netgenium access control system is extremely scalable and capable of covering thousands of doors.
The Netgenium access control portfolio is a combination of extremely flexible and scalable Lock Controllers, coupled with a range of Wiegand card readers. Each product type has multiple options to choose from to suit the deployment scenario.
The Netgenium PolicyServer will be your centralised management software and allows you to configure your access control system to perform events from something as simple as unlocking a door to a full building lock down. All of these policies are configurable by the end user. This solution is currently documented at both North Nottinghamshire College and KCA Deutag.
IP PoE Intelligent Audio Solutions
Netgenium has developed a range of intelligent IP based audio solutions that include speakers, audio gateways and inductions loops. Like the physical access control portfolio, these are all handled via the PolicyServer software.
This powerful intelligent audio solution can be used as an extremely effective and versatile Public Address system. Every Netgenium device that sits on your IP network has a unique presence; this allows you to customise your intelligent audio deployment. The system allows you to create specific audio zones, utilise a single audio device or configure a set schedule according to a particular time, day and date for certain announcements, and all this can be done via a web browser. The Netgenium IP PoE intelligent audio solutions use are documented at both Bourneville College and Transport for Greater Manchester.
IP PoE Intelligent Lighting Solutions
The combined advances in both PoE and LED technologies have allowed Netgenium to produce an effective intelligent energy saving LED lighting solution, that offers a number of benefits to the user, to complement their power and lighting control solution.
The LED lighting element can be controlled individually or part of one or more groups and controlled via a laptop, desktop, tablet or smart phone. The greatest benefit of this solution is how integrated the lighting system becomes with the rest of your network, and the greater control it gives you for your lighting infrastructure.
The Netgenium Power and Lighting Controller is the industry’s leading solution. It integrates with PolicyServer that allows you to create an extremely flexible rule base allowing lighting in designated areas to be triggered by a particular event, or a time schedule. This could be a rule to trigger the lighting in an area when a call for “light” is sounded, alternatively this systems could be combined with a detection system. The possibilities are huge!
The Netgenium solutions can integrate smoothly with a number of different technologies. At Net-Ctrl we have combined it with the Mobotix cameras and door stations, and the Assa-Abloy Aperio wireless locks to create an integrated security system.
