Better Together: Video and Access Controls

If you are looking for a way to enhance the security and efficiency of your business, you might want to consider installing a video surveillance system that integrates with an access controls system. In this blog post, we will explain what these systems are, how they work together, and what benefits they can offer to your organization.

A video surveillance system is a network of cameras that capture and record video footage of your premises. You can use it to monitor the activity of your employees, customers, visitors, and intruders. A video surveillance system can help you deter and detect crime, improve customer service, increase productivity, and comply with regulations.

An access controls system is a system that regulates who can enter and exit your premises. You can use it to grant or deny access to specific areas or resources based on predefined criteria. An access controls system can help you protect your assets, control your costs, enforce your policies, and audit your operations.

When you integrate a video surveillance system with an access controls system, you create a powerful synergy that can boost your security and efficiency even more. Here are some of the advantages of having an integrated system:

- You can verify the identity of people who request access to your premises. For example, you can use facial recognition or license plate recognition to match the person or vehicle with the credentials they present.

- You can trigger actions based on events captured by the cameras. For example, you can lock or unlock doors, turn on or off lights, or send alerts when someone enters or leaves a restricted area.

- You can review and analyze the video footage associated with access events. For example, you can see who accessed a certain room, when they did it, and what they did inside.

- You can generate reports and statistics based on the data collected by both systems. For example, you can measure the traffic flow, occupancy rate, dwell time, or conversion rate of your premises.

As you can see, having a video surveillance system that integrates with an access controls system can provide you with many benefits that can improve your security and efficiency.
