Traka Integrates with AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Access Control Software

Traka can now integrate our systems with the Symmetry™ access control system from AMAG Technology. We are now a Certified Partner of AMAG’s Symmetry Extended Business Solutions Program. As such the Traka32 software integrates with AMAG’s Symmetry v7.0.1 access control software. We cooperatively tested and certified this integration. The Integration The integration allows the functionality of the Traka32 software to be managed through Symmetry. The access control platform can now include key management along with its existing identity management, alarm management, video management and command and control functionality. Symmetry can be scaled up or down depending on the size of the business. Used by 30,000 organizations in 90 countries, Symmetry is an open security software that meets all typical IP networking and integration requirements. How It Works Our Traka32’s curfew functionality ensures keys are checked out or returned in specific, defined time increments and fault logging can show a problem that occurred during an asset’s use and ensures that faulty items are automatically locked-in until fixed. Through Symmetry, it can also create a closed-loop system which means that if a key, particularly one that is sensitive to the security of the facility, is not returned it can prompt an alarm that allows the central administrator to automatically restrict access permissions. This means that individuals can be restricted from leaving the building if they have not returned a key. Shae Taylor, Extended Business Solutions Program Manager for AMAG Technology said, “The integration between Traka key and asset management solutions and AMAG’s Symmetry access control solutions means that we can offer a more holistic solution. Physical assets and keys are often the weak link in a facility’s security process, as they often rely on creating manual records, leaving room for human error. Traka is a sophisticated solution that can tie key and asset management automatically into a wider, comprehensive access control system, like Symmetry.” About AMAG Technology AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Security Management and Video Solutions can be found in a wide spectrum of markets: government, commercial, education, transportation, healthcare, utilities and banking.
