Proximex, developers of award-winning solutions for the physical security information management (PSIM) market, announced that it has expanded its Partner Program with the addition of nearly 30 technology, channel and OEM partners. As part of this program, Proximex also introduced its Software Development Kit (SDK), which is already in use by several companies to create truly integrated solutions for their customers.
"Integrators of advanced physical security solutions utilizing software from Proximex and Augusta Systems rely on the Proximex SDK to support streamlined deployment activities," said Patrick R. Esposito II, chief operating officer of Augusta Systems, Inc. "The Proximex SDK opens up Surveillint to communicate with third-party software, including Augusta Systems EdgeFrontier, which supports integration and normalization of data and control functions and pushes intelligence beyond the data center through distributed event or policy-based processing. By connecting Surveillint with other software, the Proximex SDK facilitates the creation of rich solutions at a lower cost."
Companies in the Proximex Partner Program may also gain access to the Proximex SDK. This SDK offers more extensibility than ever for the creation of sophisticated security applications that integrate with a wide variety of systems and devices. Partners can take advantage of the tools included in the SDK and Proximex is committed to helping partners test their solutions in order to be assured that all systems are integrated properly.
The Proximex SDK offers multiple levels of integration. First, the Proximex SDK can be used to quickly enable alarms and sensors from security systems to be displayed in Surveillint. Second, the SDK allows partners to develop their own full Integration Modules with Surveillint that take advantage of bi-directional capabilities to receive information as well as synchronize information and send commands to the vendor system. Finally, partners can use the Proximex SDK to develop customized user interfaces (UIs) built on top of Surveillint.
The open architecture of the Proximex SDK makes it easy to integrate with a customer's environment, whether simple or complex. This openness allows partners to better serve their customers' individual needs by being able to integrate with the security system or device of choice. It doesn't matter if the individual solutions are new or already installed at the customer's location, the Proximex SDK is flexible enough to work with virtually any security solution. Partners can choose the best solutions for their customers and still get the best of Proximex Surveillint, including business logic management, reporting and centralized management and control.
