Video management software (VMS), combined with physical access control, creates a unified solution that simplifies your security operations with a smarter approach to IP video surveillance. Integrating access control systems with your video security creates improved visibility, better risk mitigation and more powerful analytics to identify access events. Instead of handling disparate systems, your administrators can view critical information from a single pane of glass, providing a more efficient user experience.
Openpath’s access control system natively integrates with leading video management systems, providing users with an end-to-end solution that visually captures access events as they happen, and the ability to respond immediately.
Leveraging our open API, Milestone, Camio, and Rhombus created easy-to-deploy and well-integrated user experiences from a single pane of glass for facility and security managers. Access events and logs tie into video camera feeds and events, enabling quick video retrieval, real-time visibility to security events and accurate audit trails for compliance requirements. From a deployment option perspective, Camio’s cloud-based video analytics system can run standalone or layer on top of legacy video surveillance systems, and service customers looking for cloud-based or add-on video surveillance technology. For those users looking for an on-premise system, Milestone is a leading VMS provider with a robust, enterprise-grade system trusted by landlords and tenants alike. And, if you’re looking to integrate with other video systems, please let us know. It’s relatively straightforward with our APIs.
Openpath’s integration with Camio’s video analytics capabilities lets you associate access control events with your video footage anytime, from any camera. Use simple search queries to look up building access events across all locations that integrate within your video feed, allowing enhanced security control such as: visually identify forced open doors, review unlock attempts by a specific user, or track unsolicited visitors.
In order to get the best quality picture with your video security system, make sure there is nothing blocking the view of the camera. If possible, the camera should be in a discreet location so that it isn’t tampered by potential intruders.
