Feenics: Company Enables New Schneider Electric Cloud-Hosted Security Management Solution



Las Vegas, Nev. — April 11, 2016 — Feenics, of Ottawa, Canada, announced a strategic partnership with Schneider Electric, Dallas, and its new AccessXpert cloud-ready security management solution.

Unveiled at ISC West 2016, AccessXpert provides building owners, managers, and security personnel with mobile access, intrusion detection, access control, alarm management, and other systems from anywhere, any time.

In addition, it merges security with Schneider Electric’s SmartStruxure building management system (BMS) to enable clearer decisions, faster responses, and maximum facility efficiency. 

AccessXpert is enabled by Feenics’ cloud-hosting capabilities to deliver advanced security, access control, and alarm notification features that can be managed on premise or in the cloud and supported by worldwide access control provider Mercury Security, of Long Beach, Calif. 

The user-friendly platform and easy-to-use mobile applications enable core security systems, such as ID badging, real-time alarm management, and wireless lock systems by Allegion and ASSA ABLOY to be integrated with the BMS, providing a simple interface to bridge historically disparate systems.

Paul DiPeso, executive vice president, Feenics, said enterprise users will more fully be able to leverage and use the power of the cloud to efficiently manage the entire security. 

“AccessXpert is the perfect solution for those looking to modernize their security infrastructure without having to make significant IT investments,” DiPeso said. “We are proud to help put comprehensive security management power into the hands of building owners and facility managers through this collaborative effort with Schneider Electric and Mercury Security.”

Jim Sandelin, senior vice president, buildings, Schneider Electric, said AccessXpert marks an evolution of intelligent building integration that aligns security and sustainability for enhanced building efficiency and performance.

“Today’s security professionals operate in a constantly changing, on-the-move environment and need access to critical data from their laptops, tablets, or smartphones," he said. "With Feenics cloud security and access control management and Mercury Security hardware, we are providing an open, streamlined management solution for today’s on-the-move security staff." 

The latest version of the award-winning Keep by Feenics includes new mobile apps as well as faster, real-time alarm management, increased functionality, and enhanced scalability.
