Covid-19 Macro for Genetec Synergis™ Access Control

Automate Covid-related access control rules without the involvement of a security practitioner or administrator.

How it works

Developed by BCD’s team of software engineers, this easy-to-use macro can be installed on Genetec’s Security Center/Synergis to assist in the management of access control rules pertaining to Covid-19 and vaccination status.

The macro allows a .csv file from a human resource portal or health screening platform to be uploaded into Synergis, which then automatically changes and pushes these rules directly to the access control system without having to involve a security administrator.
