Security management system now includes integrated power and Mercury controller
PISCATAWAY, NJ AND MUNDELIN, IL - March 22, 2016 - LifeSafety Power® Inc., the industry leader in Smart Power Solutions and patented remote monitoring capabilities, has announced a new partnership with DAQ Electronics, LLC, a leading manufacturer of high-end security software and equipment.
LifeSafety Power is now an integral part of the commercial StarWatch™ Security Management System (SMS), providing the widely used and specified Authentic Mercury Security access controller hardware platform and integrated power in a seamless and easy to install enclosure.
This StarWatch SMS product integration platform will be officially launched at ISC West 2016, April 5-8 in Las Vegas, where it will be on display in booth 3103. LifeSafety Power will also highlight the new partnership during the show at booth 14121.
The StarWatch SMS platform enables security professionals to easily design and deploy integrated systems consisting of access control, intrusion detection and video management, all through a single software interface. For installers and end-users looking to incorporate Authentic Mercury hardware or DAQ EntroStar units into their overall StarWatch SMS security solution, pre-installed access panel assemblies using LifeSafety Power technology are now available to suit one, two, four and eight door configurations. Each assembly resides in a LifeSafety Power painted steel enclosure and comes equipped with a FlexPower® FPO75/FPO150 power supply, with the exception of the one-door assembly, which is powered via PoE cabling. Within an integrated StarWatch SMS system, these assemblies provide the capacity to effectively control and monitor multiple doors/portals, including all associated entry/exit readers, door locks and door contacts.
Christopher Sincock, Vice President, Security Business for DAQ said, “Of the many enclosure options we researched for our StarWatch SMS equipment, we feel that the LifeSafety Power solution offers our customers the best combination of reliability and flexibility, and we are excited to begin this affiliation.”
LifeSafety Power is an award-winning provider of UL and cUL enclosures that meet a wide range of applications and specifications for integrated access controller hardware and power in a single design. In addition, LifeSafety Power network communications modules can remotely monitor the power to both the Mercury panels and locks to increase reliability and detect potential problems before they happen or as they occur with notification via email, smartphone or web-based device.
