Axis Communications Introduces Unified Video Management and Access Control
As today’s security system integrators and users look to add system functionality while also maintaining ease of use, Axis Communications introduces “all-in-one access control and video management” through AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry. This new capability is included at no additional cost within the latest release of AXIS Camera Station video management software.
A part of the validated, end-to-end solution, AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry ensures trouble-free management of a site by providing video-verified access control. In addition to access control management and live video monitoring, the newly enhanced software offers secure access to door control logs and links them to video recordings for easier and more effective incident investigation.
“Network video and access control are powerful security tools in and of themselves. When integrated, they can deliver a solution that’s significantly more effective. Furthermore, seamless integration through the same VMS lets integrators and users benefit from easy installation, deployment and use. That’s the idea behind AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry--it’s a simple and fully integrated end-to-end solution that unifies physical access control and video surveillance in one powerful platform,” said Mitch Mershon, Business Development Manager, End to End Solutions, Axis Communications, Inc. “AXIS Camera Station is an ideal, easy to use solution for education, retail, healthcare and many commercial settings--offering operational efficiencies and an added layer of security. Now, with AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry users can seamlessly pair video with access control data to easily verify who is entering and exiting their building.”
Designed to work with AXIS A1601 Network Door Controller and Axis card readers, this scalable solution can manage up to 128 doors per server and up to 10,000 cardholders with support for multiple credentials. AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry is included in all AXIS Camera Station licenses, and one license is needed for each door controller.
With a user-friendly interface, it’s easy to manage cardholders and control who has access to what and when. It provides operators with a complete overview of everything that’s happening. With one unified interface, an operator can monitor the video and control door access at the same time. For instance, it’s possible to visually identify visitors, check when a person entered a building, and trigger video alerts and other actions.
