Genetec Inc. announced a new subscription model for its flagship unified security platform, Genetec Security Center. Security Center Subscription introduces new flexible ownership and payment options that allow customers to get access to Security Center on a “pay-as-you-go” basis.
Subscribing customers receive the same local, on-premises version of Security Center and pay for it on a monthly or annual basis, as opposed to purchasing the entire system upfront. When purchasing on subscription, customers also benefit from the Genetec online support resources and qualified support professionals by phone or through live chat, as well as access to Security Center Cloud services with risk-free trials included in the price. Security Center Subscription is available immediately through the new Genetec self-service portal.
“Genetec is leading the way in the physical security industry by offering customers an alternative ownership option for our successful video surveillance platform,” said Andrew Elvish, vice president of product management and marketing at Genetec. “Not only will customers enjoy the same fully featured version of Security Center, but they will do so with lower upfront expenditures, predicable recurring costs, and access to the latest releases and Genetec support resources, at no additional charge.”
As part of its new subscription model, Genetec also is introducing Security Center Compact, a new entry-level edition of Security Center. Only available through subscription, Security Center Compact was showcased for the first time at ISC West. This new edition of Security Center supports up to 25 cameras and provides an easy, “no training required” option for customers with basic video management requirements. The Compact edition features all of the camera integrations available in the enterprise edition of the software, so customers can choose the vendors they want to work with and design a system that suits their business.
Beginning in April 2016, Genetec certified channel partners were able to sign up for a 90-day trial of Security Center Compact.
