Develop a solution tailored to your exact needs. Whether it's building a custom interface that integrates multiple disparate systems into one cohesive solution, controlling user access based on data in an external system, or sending temperature and humidity readings to a Building Management System to conduct trend analysis, the possibilities are endless.
Custom Integration Tools
Freedom, flexibility, and total control
Finding a system that meets ALL of your business needs can be as difficult as finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. At ICT, we don’t stop at off the shelf solutions. While we’ve invested a lot of resources into ensuring our solutions mean you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, there may be times when you might want to upgrade the tyres.
ICT has been built on innovation and developing solutions that focus on end user needs. With more than 40% of our staff dedicated to research and development, integration remains a key focus, allowing our customers to maximize the investment already made on technology and infrastructure.
This in turn can simplify your business processes and ultimately help your organization function more efficiently. But while we have a growing number of off the shelf integrations, you may want to incorporate specific functionality or use a system that we don’t yet integrate with.
From controlling your system from a third party application, importing data from an external source, or creating your own fully customized solution, our custom integration tools give you the power to tailor a solution that meets your exact needs.
Our use of open protocols ensure you aren’t constrained to specific software or hardware, and we don’t lock you out of your own data – enabling you to integrate with virtually any third party system or component. Whether you utilize your own inhouse experts, hire a specialized contractor, or outsource to an offshore provider, the choice is yours. You have complete control over your development schedule and the functionality that is implemented.
Combine the power of enterprise level integrated access control with external data sources. The ability to synchronize data between the systems, reduces management time and administration while providing single data entry and enhancing efficiency.
Automation and Control Protocol
Designed to allow third party automation products to communicate directly with Protege controllers, our Automation and Control protocol enables you to control doors, areas, outputs, inputs and variables, anywhere in the system, and to monitor their status.
Integration with MSMQ provides the ability to transmit specific events to a queue using Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ). This allows third party applications, services, and processes, to take advantage of real time event connectivity with the Protege GX Server.
The options don't stop there...
The Send Event action can be used to create and send XML events from the server, while the Serial Printer Service outputs ASCII events directly from the Controller. Both options transmit events across TCP/IP to a third party system that can then react and respond in virtual real time.
Protege also integrates with many Building Management Systems passing information via the Modbus protocol and allowing the communication and control of objects (inputs, outputs, areas, doors) from a standard industrial automation package.
