About Genie

Genie has been developed by Torrens drawing on over 10 years of experience with software for security and access control applications. It provides management of security alarm and access control using the Genesis panel from Genesis Electronics Australia P/L in a Windows environment.

Genie stores its data using an SQL database management system, providing fast and efficient retrieval and updating. Event logging and alarm processing are handled simultaneously with operators viewing and editing other data. Data upload and download is also done without interrupting essential logging and alarm operations.

Genie provides different Centers for handling different options. For example, the Users Center provides operators with tools to program users and their access details. Once in the Center, the operator can move to edit other details such as lists of doors. Extensive context sensitive on-line help is available for all options.

Genie presents data in plain English, so that operators do not need to know how to program a Genesis panel in order to use the system.
