GEMOS & GEMOS access
Presenting our product line
Integral management and access control system
Building, security, risk or facility management – these are only
a few of the terms to describe the functions and services of
GEMOS is a range of products comprising software, hardware,
accessories and services. As a software-based graphical management platform, GEMOS supports the technical and organisational
implementation of all methods for safeguarding against danger.
Individual analysis of the dangers that threaten companies and
institutions represents the starting point for the adaptation of
GEMOS to customer's needs. Security is a management issue, but
in daily operation, the instruments must be made available for
the consequent implementation by responsible employees and
must therefore be simple, logical and intuitive to operate. This
is reliably achieved by GEMOS through a trade-spanning interaction, logical links and an intuitive user interface – even for the
control of such complex security installations as, e. g., fire alarm,
intrusion detection alarm, escape door control, access control,
video, and intercommunication systems.
danger management systems. Free scalability is the basis for the
economic application of GEMOS access, regardless of whether it
is for small projects with only one access point and a small circle
of people or complex large-scale facilities.
GEMOS access unites different technical trades involved in
the security on and around the door: access control, escape
door control, and monitoring systems are linked centrally
to the GAM door module. The systems are connected via a
GEMOS universal bus, either with stub lines or in a redundant
loop circuit. In addition, a 128 bit AES encryption of the serial
bus is possible as an option. The open interface architecture
enables the connection of many customary card readers –
independently from the applied reading technique. Program
core and database are based on years of consistently further
developed and innovative GEMOS software philosophy.
Clear menu structures, predefined settings for typical applications
as well as hardware recognition assistants allow for fast and therefore economic handling both during installation and operation.
GEMOS access represents another of ela-soft GmbH's own
product line in addition to GEMOS. The application options
extend from offline access control systems for small applications
to modular and fully integrated parts of building, security or

GEMOS – System overview
 The modular design of GEMOS allows for versatile solutions:
from individual workstation systems to cross-company multiple workstation systems.
 Every trade has its own language, has its own requirements
and requires that users have specific knowledge. GEMOS
understands and translates information from any trade. It
combines all information under a clearly laid out user interface
and consolidates trade alarms and other alarms into one point.
 Redundancy concepts can be implemented according to workstation, network, server and interface requirements.
GEMOS System overview
The highest availability at all levels
The HA agent monitors all hardware and software components
GEMOS – Redundancy
GEMOS can be designed continuously redundant on all levels.
Redundant designs of operating consoles, networks, servers,
databases and interfaces absolutely guarantees high availability.
The GEMOS HA agent monitors all GEMOS components in that it
queries the status via Life Beat.
In the case of a malfunction, it informs the hot standby component,
which now activates itself as the master and continues its operation.

What can be integrated into GEMOS?
Anything that has an interface
GEMOS Interface management
It is possible to manage numerous media, communication and

Intelligent interfaces
Interface driver for every subsystem
GEMOS Interface driver
High availability and secure interfaces are the basis for the
smooth-functioning linking of third-party systems to management systems. Intelligent interfaces provide a separate driver
for coupling with every third-party system. The GEMOS driver is
independently run-capable and a self-contained software component that, on the one hand, speaks the language of the third-party
trade and, on the other hand, speaks "GEMOS". Thanks to its
autonomy, the GEMOS driver can work on separate hardware like
on the GEMOS controller under Windows or Linux. The benefit of
using separate hardware is that the system load of the main server
can be considerably reduced. If several interfaces are used, these
can be separated from each other logically and also spatially.
Individual interface drivers can also be 100% redundantly linked
to GEMOS in conjunction with the HA agent GEMOS redundant
module. Both drivers run simultaneously (if desired also on separate hardware) and are permanently monitored for function via
the GEMOS HA agent. If the driver or a third-party trade interface
malfunctions, the HA agent switches to the second one, and the
GEMOS operator is notified of the malfunction via an error report.
The communication between GEMOS and the third-party trade,
however, remains unrestricted.
All important hardware parameters are read out and, if necessary, presented as an event in the GEMOS user interface with the
GEMOS SNMP status monitor. If, for example, the temperature
of a hardware component is too high, for example, a defined
threshold alarm can be generated so that appropriate measures
can be implemented before the affected component fails.
