System Integration Improves Reporting
Keep abreast of activities at your site or across multiple sites.
Integrate your CCTV system NVR (Network Video Recorder) or DVR (Digital Video Recorder) with your access control system to unlock the potential of your security systems via visual reports and alerts.
Use the advanced features of access control system software to link controlled access doors with individual CCTV cameras; or install specific cameras to work in tandem with high risk or security sensitive areas.
Once integrated, when events occur at a specific door, including (but not limited to):
- Door forced
- Door left open
- Persistent denied access attempts
– alerts are escalated to send an image or real time video of the event – enabling you to react to, and resolve, issues as they happen.
Activity Searching with Image Link
Review the activity log by door or user (when linked to a compatible Network or Digital Video Recorder) and individual log events on the access control software link with the integrated video management system to interrogate the hard drive for video of the timed event at the specific door.
This level of detailed searching enables you to ascertain if the proximity card holder is actually the person who entered the protected area.
A lower-risk scenario where Image Link may be useful is if a sub-contractor supplies a skilled operative at a higher rate, yet allows a less qualified and lower paid person to enter.
A higher risk scenario could be someone using someone else’s card to gain access to a restricted area, or a high value storage facility.
