Benefits

Benefits

By connecting your technologies and systems within the Sky-Walker Integration Platform, you establish a full integrated solution – amongst the most comprehensive on the market. There are a number of common needs and requirements for building owners as well as for operators, fulfilled when using the Sky-Walker Integration Platform: 

Boost your overall efficiency

  • Full situation overview of disparate systems at any given time.
  • Easily use and configure interactions between your systems, e.g. an alarm caused by the intrusion system automatically makes a specific camera record what’s happening.
  • Project data (such as users, floor-plans and technology schemes) are stored into one central database and are easy to update and maintain. 

Reduce costs

  • The intuitive graphical user interface gives access to all connected systems. Only one user login is required to monitor and control them but the monitoring can be broken up across various users.
  • Operator knowledge of only one software package is required, thus reducing training time & cost 
  • All of your data is stored into one solution, which keeps your operators from assembling facts and statistics manually 

 Minimise faults and risks

  • Ensure correct event handling with pre-defined procedures.
  • Call-up control command menus in a uniform way. 

 Open and future proof

  • All systems work autonomously and the programming of different subsystems happens through software delivered by each individual supplier of that subsystem.
  • Simple COTS (Commercial off-the-shelf) deployments 

 Report, conclude, modify and repeat

  • Integrated event and alarm reports are easily generated to allow the operator to see the cause & effect of alarms. Integrated trend logging features highlight key issues.
  • Real-time dashboards visualize the current status.

Command & control

Command & control

The Sky-Walker software is designed to visualize, monitor and control your subsystems with the highest possible level of efficiency and user-friendliness.

Design and build in function of your project’s requirements

The graphical user interface consists of multiple elements, each having their own functionality. Its layout is completely scalable, which means you can use the software from a various amount of devices – from tablet to video wall. You determine the look and feel of your system. Navigate between buildings, send control commands, call alarm buffers, generate reports, add users and so much more in the blink of an eye.

Communication with your systems

Every system uses a different communication protocol to communicate. Entelec therefore creates driver modules which translate your system’s messages to Sky-Walker and vice versa. Upon choosing location, site or floor, the operator is presented with architectural plans, drawings, technical schemes, etc. These are used as backgrounds containing ‘objects’ visualizing field equipment such as cameras, fire detectors, doors, lighting points and much more.

Quick navigation

  • Guaranteed efficiency: navigate to relevant plans in the fastest possible way using several types of navigation.
  • Use navigation buttons to access predefined parts of your plans and divide them based on e.g. geographical locations, floors, technologies.
  • The alarm buffer contains a list of the subsystems’ various states. Select an element in this list and the software automatically navigates to the corresponding object.
  • Navigate via the workflow manager in function of procedures to be followed
  • Use the tree view for a to the point hierarchical view of available plans.

Graphical User Interface

Graphical User Interface

Sky-Walker is the interface between operators and all connected subsystems and is designed with the highest level of efficiency and user-friendliness. 

  • Use only one and intuitive user interface to visualise, monitor and control all your different subsystems
  • It offers a clear overview of sites, buildings and floors through architectural plans, drawings or schemes
  • The intuitive design makes it easy to navigate to relevant plans in the fastest possible way
  • The layout is scalable, meaning the software can be used on a various amount of devices - from a tablet to a video wall
  • The look and feel of your system can be configured as desired

Video Management

Entelec’s IP Matrix is a video integration solution that allows the display and control CCTV equipment by building its own virtual matrix.

 

  • Create your own video-dispatching, by visualising video images coming from IP cameras, IP encoders, DVRs or video management systems directly on your video wall, PCs, tablets, etc.
  • Any third party CCTV system can be integrated, so using different programs to control your cameras is no longer an issue
  • Experience a user-friendly video security solution that is flexible and interactive
  • Switch the view of your cameras, start salvos and scenarios, run sequences, pan-tilt-zoom remotely and access stored video images from one central application.

Access Manager

Access Manager

Via the Access Manager entrance badges can be programmed and managed centrally in Sky-Walker, with the possibility to integrate several access control systems.

  • Define access rights over dispersed (international) locations onto your users’ personal badges
  • Save time by managing all of your user profiles from one platform
  • All data is available from a central database and can be obtained at any time
  • Multiple access control systems can be integrated

Workflows

Workflows

The Workflow Manager is used to guarantee that alarms coming from the subsystems are handled in a standardised way.

 

  • Simplify your operators’ tasks and enable them to be on top of the situation at all times
  • Link procedures to specific events and provide extra information based on the situation by showing corresponding live views or automatically generating relevant commands
  • Draw up the procedures and interactions that facilitate alarm handling yourself, through easy configuration
  • Detailed reporting features offer the possibility to verify how alarms were handled, including time, comments, alarm and user information

GIS Integration

GIS Integration

GIS (Geographical Information System) integration is mostly used in Safe City projects, where cameras are installed on roads and at cross-sections.

  • Navigate to any location by searching postal codes, street names, GPS coordinates
  • Sky-Walker support online mapping tools such as Google maps, Street maps, BING maps and Yahoo maps, which displays street views, street names, road layouts and aerial views
  • Just like on a floorplan of a building, objects on the GIS map reflect their status and commands can be executes

Reports & Statistics

Reports & Statistics

Which operator takes the most intercom calls? Which building has the most hold-ups? What are the most common registered events? Sky-Walker registers all this data and offers the ability to generate reports, graphs and statistics and to visualise them in a real time display via custom-made dashboards. 

  • Predefine your own reports and dashboards to generate data that is specifically of interest to you
  • Stay on top of the current situation and create lists of deviating circumstances. Filter on buildings, alarm types, priority, etc. and react quickly to unwanted situations
  • Register trends of system performance, maintenance performance and operator performance
  • Reporting helps optimise processes and reduce alarms. Integrated alarm reports can easily be generated, allowing the operator to find the actual cause and effect of a certain alarm
  • The real time display of statistics allows management to see at top line the current performance
