New feature-rich integration is a first of its type for Inner Range’s Inception, creating exciting opportunities for Atlas Gentech and Central Security Distribution (CSD) customers.
This new and exciting integration between Hanwha WiseNet Wave VMS and Inner Range’s Inception security and access control solution allows bi-directional control of both systems in one, simple to use interface through Hanwha’s mobile app, WiseNet Wave.
The Inner Range philosophy of open architecture has provided the ability for bi-directional capability in automation, biometric access control and high-level video surveillance integrations to be created by many of the world’s leading manufacturers.
“In this case it is the collaboration between Atlas Gentech, CSD, Inner Range and Hanwha that has seen the combined technical resources in ANZ, from the teams of Atlas Gentech and CSD, create this integrated solution” states Mark Edwards, General Manager – Products, Marketing & Support for CSD and Atlas Gentech. “We have written comprehensive commissioning documents to make this whole process very simple from start to finish.”
This specific integration incorporates features such as arming and disarming of the system and unlocking and locking doors on the Inception solution from the WiseNet Wave mobile App. Video analytics trigger alarms, activating security inputs and emergency Icons on the WiseNet Wave Mobile App, when triggered, will then activate alarms on the Inception panel.
This feature rich integration is the first of its type for Inner Range’s Inception and creates some very exciting opportunities for Atlas Gentech and CSD customers.

“At Inner Range, the foundation of the business has always been about intelligent security systems that seamlessly integrate with other best in class solutions. So, when Inception was developed and launched, the very same philosophy was carried through” says Mark Cunnington, Senior Vice President of Inner Range. “The Inception platform allows for third party programmers to design their own integrations very easily” he concludes.
“The electronic security market has witnessed significant changes over the last 20 years” states Andrew Thorburn, Enterprise Security & Risk Manager for Atlas Gentech NZ. “Fully integrated access control, intruder detection and IP video surveillance platforms are simplifying operational command centres for businesses all over the globe.”
Whilst these changes have brought significant benefits to law enforcement, public safety organisations and enterprise end users, their deployment has often been restricted to organisations with large budgets. This is due to licensing and some solutions costly software maintenance agreements. Many consider that systems are similar at face value, however, the hidden details become evident when the surface is scratched.
Manufacturers who have evolved their offerings to embrace an IP centric user interface, combined with high levels of open standards communication protocol encryption and effortless third-party integration, have changed what was previously reserved to large corporates.
“Much of the performance and functionality of those enterprise systems is now accessible to the residential and SME markets at a fraction of the cost” says Edwards, “The Inception solution is an integrated access control and security alarm system with a design edge that sets it apart from the pack.”
The Inception solution has web-based software built directly into the main system controller, the Inception system is easy to access using a web browser on a computer, tablet or smartphone.
With a step-by-step commissioning guide and outstanding user interface, Inception is easy to install and very easy to operate.
Budget Friendly Security Solution
“The Inception system is a budget friendly security solution that is both powerful and very flexible” states Thorburn. “With no software costs and truly universal inputs & outputs, Inception can often be deployed as a stand-alone controller reducing the need for additional hardware” he adds.
Inception’s web-based interface is the gateway to convenience for both the system installer and the end user. There is no need to install software on a computer and no need to leave a computer running on site. Inception can be configured and commissioned using almost any device that has a web browser.
Integration is world class
For end users, this new integration between the Inner Range Inception system and Hanwha WiseNet Wave combines the expertise and ingenuity of a local manufacturer with the power and endless capabilities from Hanwha one of the world’s largest manufacturers of surveillance products.
The solution is extremely easy to control through the WiseNet Wave mobile app on your existing smartphones, tablets or computers.
