Smartmatic launches the new applications server

Caracas, August 03, 2000.- Smartmatic, the technological solutions provider, officially launched the Smartmatic Applications Server, SAS, for a wide range of automation services and facility management.

"SAS can interconnect with any type of peripheral device, like alarms, electric locks or video cameras, through smart controllers like the DVCs also developed by Smartmatic", explains Roger Piñate, COO of the company.

Fire detection, humidity and temperature controls, management of elevators and video-surveillance equipments, can all be done by SAS in a remote and centralized manner. Says Piñate: "This is an important first step, with which we enter into the innovative field of device-networking".

According to Paul Babic, Product and Marketing Manager, "since it is a web tool, SAS can be accessed from a web browser anywhere in the world. One just connects to the company's server to access the information through security protocols that guarantee the privacy of data, even in public networks".

Babic says that the information SAS manages is supplied by Smartmatic's Digital Versatile Controllers (DVC), which also carry out the orders given from the application. "Therefore, the final user has a unified solution to control any type and amount of electronic devices, in a 100% safe manner".
