Special icons can be placed on each schematic map which shows, in real time, the status of field hardware such as inputs, outputs, and areas. Maps can be imported from image files or scanned blueprints and augmented with drill-downs and interlinks between maps.

Our intuitive Shapes tool, lets you trace areas of any shape or location on the map and significant items such as doors and detection devices can also graphically represented. Multiple intrusion points can be summarised with a single icon – if one point goes into alarm, clicking the icon expands the display to show the source of the incursion. Our fully featured CCTV integration means cameras can be selected and controlled directly from the floor plan.

Best-in-class Intruder Detection

Concept 4000 has a well erned reputation as a reliable and powerful systems for intruder detection and reporting. Our modular architecture means our system scales effortlessly to keep pace with the growth of your organisation and its needs. Thousands of detection points can be monitored throughout an entire building or extended facility. Our unrivalled multi-path alarm reporting technology means incursions can be reported quickly and decisively to multiple destinations including central monitoring stations, mobile phones, pagers, notebooks and desktop workstations. All events are recorded in a tamper-proof security log which can be linked to pre-event and post-event camera footage. Because Concept 4000 is an integrated access control solution, false alarms triggered by employees are greatly mimimised.

Business Systems Integration

Engineered for enterprise and powered by an industry-standard SQL database engine, our Insight management software offers an extensive range of high-level interface options to other enterprise systems including payroll databases, hotel and property management systems and Enterprise Resource Planning packages.

User Friendly Software

Insight was designed with two fundamental goals in mind. First, to provide a reliable, best-in-class enterprise tool for holistically managing an entire Concept 4000 installation. Second, to deliver a user friendly tool for Operators regardless of their computer literacy. With Insight, we’ve achieved this goal.

For example, with Insight you can instantly search the entire database in less than ten seconds, using the same search interface as Microsoft® Windows®. With the press of a button, you can create a graph showing how every programming item relates to every other item. Even a complicated system becomes easy when you have the right software

Uninterrupted OffLine Operation

Concept 4000 provides a wealth of redundancy options to ensure uninterrupted offline operation. System operation is completely independent of the front end management software. Standalone local Control Modules continually maintain all aspects of the system functionality including event logging while intelligent fourdoor reader modules provide local caching of 24,000 users if the Concept 4000 Control Module is unreachable.


The communications channel between the Concept 4000 hardware and Insight software is protected by industrial-strength 128-bit AES encryption. This algorithm has been selected by the US government as the new Advanced Encryption Standard and offers the highest protection available against spoofng, identity faking and capture/replay attacks. This makes AES Encryption the natural choice for high security installations and corporate buildings where security services are run through existing TCP/IP business networks.

Unlimited Operator Flexibility

Insight establishes a new standard in Operator management. Create any number of Operator Types, and assign super fine grained permissions to each group. You can, literally, specify distinct permissions for every single object in an Insight system, then assign one or more groups to each Operator. That operator will then automatically receive the combined privileges of your selection. You can even apply these permissions to a work station, to cap the privileges of any operator at that location. All operator activities are logged to a permanent audit file for examination and reporting. In addition, all programming items show the name and date of the last operator to make an edit.

Visitor Management

Use Insight to quickly allocate temporary contractor or visitor passes that automatically expire at the end of the day, or some other time you specify. You can also require that visitors must be escorted at all times.
