NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SW24, one of the leading security services companies located in New York City, is pleased to announce it has become a Genetec dealer. Genetec, headquartered in Montreal, Canada, is a pioneer in the physical security industry and provider of world-class Internet Protocol (IP) security solutions. The agreement also allows SW24 to provide remote third-party monitoring for Genetec customers requesting this service.

"Genetec is, quite simply, the leader in specialized security software, especially video management of camera arrays large and small," said Desmond Smyth, SW24 president. "Genetec is a perfect complement to our current video management products and services -- one that will give our customers one-stop shopping for virtually all of their security needs."

Smyth said the agreement will make SW24 Genetec's provider of video monitoring services in the New York City area for the next three years should Genetec customers not want to do their own video monitoring with their own personnel. He said that the new relationship will give Genetec customers a comprehensive managed services platform for video and access control. These services include a wide range of enhancements, including remote health checks of the customer systems and a variety of management reporting. "SW24 has been providing similar services to our customers for the past 10 years," Smyth added.

"We are very excited about the agreement with SW24; we have very high expectations in terms of the level of service we will now be able to offer our NYC customers with this collaboration with SW24," says Alain Cote, Genetec's Executive Vice President.

SW24 also said that substantial progress was being made on its building of a 25,000 square foot monitoring facility called the Fusion Centre in Moonachie, New Jersey scheduled to be operational in 2012. "It will act as not only a monitoring facility for Genetec customers but as a demonstration site for Genetec products and services," Smyth said. "Our Fusion Centre will be truly a state-of-the-art, United Laboratories (UL)-approved facility."
