Gallagher Security ushers in a new generation of cyber-focused controllers with the Controller 7000

Award-winning, global security manufacturer, Gallagher Security, lays the groundwork for the new age of cybersecurity by introducing a new generation of controllers, beginning with the Controller 7000 (C7000), available for purchase November 10*.

Capable of managing all localized access control, intruder alarms, perimeter security, business automation, and logic needs for organizations, the Controller 7000 represents a new generation of Gallagher Security technology, offering streamlined upgrades and advanced cybersecurity. Building on the incredible groundwork introduced with the Controller 7000 Single Door released in February 2023, the C7000 gives users an opportunity to leverage their hardware and firmware to build a platform designed to catapult their organization into the future.

Jim Rayner, Value Owner at Gallagher who led production on the C7000, sees this as a sign of Gallagher’s future growth to come, stating: “The C7000 is the first step in a new era of Gallagher’s product development, and I believe this controller offers our customers limitless potential and industry leading cyber protection. We’re excited by what we’ve achieved with this controller, and our customers will continue finding value in the device for many years to come.”In a rapidly evolving digital age, following basic cyber hygiene is no longer enough – businesses need a solution that is prepared for tomorrow’s cyber environment, today. With enhanced hardware and cybersecurity baked in from inception, the Controller 7000 is up for the challenge. Powerful iMX8 System-on chip and an NXP Edgelock secure element ensure a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and guarantees software authenticity on each device, and with a ten times more powerful microprocessor, the C7000 executes access decisions twenty-five times faster, resyncing the cardholder database in half the time.

Additionally, utilizing feedback directly from End Users, Channel Partners, and Consultants, Gallagher’s product team developed the C7000’s key features to make upgrading easier than ever. The C7000 has been purposely designed with the same footprint, wiring, and ports as the Controller 6000, providing the power to take advantage of the newest technologies and easily scale as a business grows.  

The Controller 7000 will be available for purchase on November 10. Contact your local Gallagher-certified Channel Partner or Gallagher representative for more information.
