Just as Microsoft Office brings together several pieces of office-related software, so too does the security industry benefit from product integration. Forestville, Connecticut-based Ingersoll Rand is just the latest to jump on board with its new Security Management System (SMS) from Schlage. SMS, which will replace the Geoffrey access control system (yet remain backwards compatible), offers access control, digital video, and alarm monitoring systems under a single label. Ingersoll Rand will offer the integrated package at four different price levels, thereby allowing smaller companies to buy in on the ground floor and slowly build up their security systems as resources permit.

In other related news, Ingersoll Rand this week also announced its new Schlage mobile video manager (MVM) “designed to provide durability and versatility for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor applications, from school buses to mass transit. Video captured by the Schlage MVM can be sent via cellular, wireless, mesh or LAN/WAN networks to alert security personnel quickly, from multiple locales, using mobile phones, PDAs and/or PCs,” reported.
