> Genetec - Innovation Is At The Core Of What We Do

The world is changing. Our end-users understand the need to use technology to secure their environments – our challenge is to enable them to better protect and understand their environments. The people who rely on our software are always required to do more with less. Budgets are constrained but more people, buildings, and municipalities need to be secured. Through a commitment to innovation, passion, creativity, integrity, and simplicity, our technology helps them multiply their efforts. The world has an insatiable appetite for software, and we love creating the software that maintains and protects the flow of everyday life.

- Pierre Racz, President & CEO of Genetec

Innovation is at the core of what we do

When Genetec was founded in 1997, we knew that technology could break down barriers and broaden perspectives. Our very first IP-based video surveillance system was true to that belief. It gave customers more flexibility, scalability, and ease of use. It empowered our users to do more.

Today, Genetec is still focused on delivering innovation that makes life work better. As the industry leader in IP-based security solutions, it’s our aim to minimize the unknown. We build resilient, connected solutions that help businesses protect, understand, and enhance the world around them. Genetec solutions go beyond security. They provide operational insights that allow people to improve their business and master their environment.

Our flagship product: Genetec Security Center
Integration is a common goal for security and IT teams with organizations looking for efficiencies by linking video with access control and automatic license plate recognition (ALPR). With integration, organizations are still deploying distinct security solutions from multiple vendors, purchasing multiple servers, attending multiple vendor-specific trainings, and maintaining several systems. A better approach exists. True unification allows organizations to deploy a single platform that embeds multiple security systems, minimizes IT infrastructure expenditures, and reduces the total cost of ownership.

Security Center is the unified security platform from Genetec that blends IP security systems within a single intuitive interface to simplify your operations. From access control, video surveillance, and automatic license plate recognition to communications, intrusion detection, and analytics, Security Center empowers organizations through enhanced situational awareness, unified command and control, and connectivity to the cloud.
