CNL Software, a world leader in Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) software, reports the global release of the IPSecurityCenter Developer Network (IPSCDevNet™), and becomes the first PSIM vendor to build a community of certified driver developers.
The IPSCDevNet™ will provide registered partners with all the tools and support needed to create certified integration drivers to the IPSecurityCenter™ PSIM platform. It will allow the open integration of a wide range of security and environmental management systems, including CCTV, access control, radar, PIDS, and fire.
IPSCDevNet™ partners will have access to a full test suite, which allows low cost, fast and reliable development. Partners are also provided with user guides, reference documentation and fully working examples. Interest among CNL Software channel and technology partners has been high, with a number of certified drivers already in use in installed projects.
Jon Lunnerfeldt, Product Manager at CNL Software comments, “This is a great advancement for the PSIM market. By allowing third parties to develop their own drivers, manufacturers of underlying systems who may have previously held some reservations about sharing their technology can now work within enterprise PSIM projects without sharing their SDKs or APIs. We have invested significantly in creating an environment similar to the app development which has revolutionized smart phones. This creates cost and time reductions for both end users and CNL Software partners. Ultimately, IPSCDevNet™ will provide the PSIM market with added value and greater choice.”
CEO, Keith Bloodworth adds, “Our goal at CNL Software is to support an “open” architecture that allows our partners to deliver the best solutions possible to their clients. Some of our competitors use 3rd party products to create drivers but we find it much more advantageous to allow our partners to create the drivers themselves. Not only is it a technically sound approach but one that adds multiple benefits to the partners while simultaneously creating a community dedicated to providing the best solution for the end user.”
