Following the recent acquisition of Dublin-based company ACT, one of Vanderbilt’s latest product offerings blends access control and video together – ACTEnterprise access control software, now supports integration with Eventys EX network video recorders (NVRs).
Eventys NVRs offer methodical video recording of up to 16 IP cameras. Now, thanks to ACTEnterprise, cameras connected to an Eventys EX NVR can be associated with access control doors, making the security solution’s rewards considerable.
Vanderbilt believes this blend of access control and video surveillance will make the day-to-day management of multiple security systems more efficient. This is because it minimizes the use of different systems for different tasks by combining operations in a single interface. Information is structured in one place therefore improving situational awareness.
The integration also improves response times as the single system interface makes monitoring alarms and events more effective and efficient. The combination of both products also provides greater monitoring capabilities by linking the live video to real-time access logs. For example, this feature enables users to see who has badged at the door to get in but has been denied access.
If someone attempts to use an inactive tag to gain access to a restricted area, an alert is triggered by ACTEnterprise and the Eventys cameras will record who was at the door trying to badge through.
Up to 500 Eventys EX NVRs and 4000 IP cameras can be connected to ACTEnterprise without the need for an additional PC or a server. In applications that include Eventys EX NVRs, ACTEnterprise software fully integrates the NVRs into the access control system, which makes verifying alarm events very easy.
