Cogito Universal Security Management System is the front-end that integrates all your security management tasks. Cogito is a unified command center for managing and monitoring access control, video, alarms and more.
Cogito meets the exacting requirements of security for multi-tenant and multi-site property management companies through comprehensive and integrated management of access control, video surveillance and alarm monitoring.
The diverse needs of multi-tenant buildings are met with features such as elevator control, parking management and custom badge printing. Partitioning and Active Directory integration mean that access can be managed for employees of multiple tenants efficiently and confidentially, with either the building manager or the tenant managing employee access. The varying needs of different types of client with different access control requirements are met through building comprehensive access profiles that utilize card readers, PIN pads and biometric readers to provide access and track employees’ locations. In case of emergency, lockdown and mustering features are used to restrict movement and ensure all employees are in a safe location.
Cogito fully integrates video surveillance enabling video-based alarms, and recordings tied to individual access points and events. Cogito’s alarm monitoring capabilities, whether intrusion alarms, video-based alarms, or attempted access control violations, facilitate the immediate reporting of all events via on-screen alerts and on maps and building floorplan screens. Alarms may be prioritized and assigned to members of the security team for follow up and resolution. In addition, alerts can be sent by e-mail to tenants as necessary. Detailed reporting of access activities and alarms can be filtered by tenant and location and made available on-line as required.
