Access control systems integration with ANPR/CCTV solutions yields superior results
The integration of access control systems with other security solutions such as video surveillance systems, video management software, analytics, ANPR, command and control or PSIM systems, will provide a superior level of security and accessibility, as well as overall lower costs, as long as the it’s done right.
Integrating a comprehensive, high-end CCTV surveillance system in one’s Time and Attendance/Access Control solution is not exactly an easy task, especially since most solutions’ providers out there can either offer one or the other. However, given our extensive experience in both segments, Access Control UK are actually able to easily offer such an extensive level of functionality for all of our systems.
As they’re built around the same cutting-edge technology platform, Tensor.NET, both the WinAC.NET and WinTA.NET suites support an extensive level of CCTV integration.
Basically, the video clips, retrieved from CCTV cameras, associated with access control activity are available when CCTV is integrated with Tensor.NET.
The cameras are allocated to location entries created in Tensor.NET, which are then linked to smart card scanners or push buttons in the Hardware Manager. Furthermore, multiple cameras can be allocated to the same location, or multiple locations can be assigned to the same camera and lock sensors are connected directly to the CCTV’s DVR.
As a lock is released, an alarm event triggers the recording of video footage for the event. This footage is then available for playback in Tensor.NET, either by location or as a link in an access control report. Screen displays are provided to report upon access events, including links to play the related video clip.
Additionally, the application allows either live or historic video to be viewed for periods not linked to any specific Access Control event.
