Synergis™ Cloud Link is an intelligent PoE-enabled IoT gateway designed to address the demand for a non-proprietary access control solution.

Synergis Cloud Link provides native support for popular non-proprietary security modules, from intelligent controllers such as Mercury Security, HID Global, and Axis communications, to electronic locks from ASSA ABLOY, Allegion, and SimonVoss, which requires Mercury EP or LP controllers.

This guide describes how to configure the next-generation Synergis Cloud Link appliance for use with Security Center. It assumes you are familiar with the Security Center platform, specifically with the Synergis™ access control system.
