Computerlinks has signed IP network security specialist Netgenium to its recently launched physical security portfolio in a move it said comes in response to reseller demands.

Cambridgeshire-based Computerlinks launched its Physical Security division last autumn, and according to Computerlinks head of physical IP security John Turner, signing Netgenium was the next stage.

“We’ve been partnering with others but this signing adds other capabilities such as energy saving,” he said.

“Resellers can now offer their clients a fully-integrated IP-based security solution alongside intelligent building technologies,” Turner added.

Netgenium’s ‘Policy Server’ security gear uses Power over Ethernet (PoE) and is designed to mesh together voice and video over IP technologies with security, door access and even lighting controls, meaning lights can be automatically dimmed or raised when an employee leaves or enters a building, for example.

Turner said resellers could talk up both the security and energy saving aspects of an integrated solution using Netgenium kit, noting that “statistics tend to show an up tick in crime during a downturn”.
