IMRON Corporation is an innovative leader in the security industry and was one of the early pioneers for access control and security management software. Throughout the years, IMRON Corporation has adapted to the changing landscape of the industry and continues to move forward and lead with its new cloud offering. IMRON Corporation was founded in 1997 and began as an OEM solution provider to some of the top names in the physical security industry, including Bosch, Stanley, Open Options, Quintron, Video Insight, DVTEL, and Matrix. Today, as a Platinum Mercury Partner, IMRON Corporation offers an OPEN solution that integrates access control with video and alarm intrusion. Customers with existing legacy platforms can utilize IMRON’s solution, and expand their site with newer open platforms like Mercury, thus reducing their overall cost of migration.
"IMRON Corporation’s UnityIS product was awarded the 2020 Secure Campus Award in the Access Control category."
Imron Hussain is the President and founder of IMRON Corporation. With over 25 years of experience in the security industry, Imron has developed a completely new and advanced generation of integrated access control software. Imron is the chief architect of the award-winning product IS2000, managing Physical and Logical Access Control, with Video and Alarm systems, combining all security needs into one powerful system. UnityIS, IMRON’s solution is designed with the user in mind offering a powerful and intuitive interface, that can be accessed from any browser-based device. The scalable and modular design allows users to control any aspect of the software, for any size installation at a granular level. UnityIS integrates to the most trusted hardware platforms in access control, alarm intrusion, and video management. Also, additional integration requirements are easily fulfilled through a variety of SDK and API tools, including web services, sockets and DLL functions through a comprehensive API, making UnityIS the most expansive platform to date.
UnityIS Cloud is IMRON’s latest product that follows a growing trend in the IT space, which will eventually be the norm in the physical security industry. “Our cloud solution is scalable for any size system, and is being offered to all of our existing customers as well as all new customers,” says the steadfast leader. “Existing on-premises customers that have an active maintenance subscription are offered the option to migrate to the new cloud product at no additional cost.” With IMRON’s cloud solution, users can instantly add a new user, update existing records, assign advanced access control attributes, view real-time events as they occur in the system, be alerted to real-time system alarms, monitor and control doors from anywhere, graphic maps for video and access control devices, and advanced reporting. UnityIS in the cloud offers customers a simple subscription model based on the number of doors with no upfront license fees and unlimited access to UnityIS.
The company has been serving consumers for more than two decades with unique offerings. In an instance, a large west coast community college was faced with a dilemma – how to move forward with a campus-wide security solution that required different hardware, but most importantly, kept the same look and feel across campus. After an exhaustive review by the Director of Facilities and their Campus Police Department, IMRON Corporation’s UnityIS Security Management System was chosen. This provided the campus with a common GUI, irrespective of the security hardware it was driving and that could additionally seamlessly integrate to an expanding video management system being deployed on campus. With the regrettable new norm of shootings on campuses, a feature that was required and was deployed allows staff members or students to “shelter in place” by triggering a lock down from inside the protected area/classroom. The college has been a safer place ever since IMRON’s solution came into play.
For the days to come, IMRON Corporation can be seen culminating into a leader in the cloud space, with a goal of converting all customers to the cloud. “We are looking towards evolving our offering and keeping pace with the latest in technology and security so that our customers receive the best solution,” says Imron.
