Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, introduced EcoStruxure™ Security Expert, a new integrated security management solution that provides high performance access control and intrusion detection functionality to ensure the most secure building environment possible.
EcoStruxure Security Expert is the latest addition to Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure, its IoT-enabled, plug-and-play, open architecture, which delivers end-to-end solutions in six domains of expertise – Power, IT, Building, Machine, Plant and Grid – for four end markets, Building, Data Center, Industry and Infrastructure.
“Security Expert marks an evolution of intelligent building integration that aligns security and IT for enhanced building efficiency and performance,” said Puneet Dhiman, Global Director, Security Offer Management, Schneider Electric. “By bringing together previously disjointed building and security systems, facility managers and security personnel can work more effectively, better manage emergency situations and glean insights that lead to improved building efficiency. We are committed to providing our customers with the world’s most open and innovative security solutions to help make more informed decisions and ultimately drive savings,” added Dhiman.
Traditional security and building automation systems operate independently, often resulting in severe limitations and custom builds that are costly to develop and maintain. With EcoStruxure Security Expert, organisations can share encrypted information between their core building and security systems to gain new levels of efficiency.
