Access Control & CCTV Integration
Access Control systems can be integrated with CCTV systems for those customers requiring a higher level of security. Not all access control systems have this capability but our team is experienced and an authorized dealer for systems with this capability.

Integrating CCTV feeds into an access control system functions to provide images or video clips that are linked into access control events. This can be accomplished in differing ways so we attempt to educate our customers with information regarding the various methods:

  • Graphical User Interface (GUI) Map with lighted access control point displays
  • Can show live monitor through access points and live video
    Can link access control activity reports to associated video recording
    Can provide "snap shot" picture from video as part of long-term reporting

  • Live Monitor Activity Report Screen
  • Can show live monitor through access points and live video
    Can link access control activity reports to associated video recording
    Can provide "snap shot" picture from video as part of long-term reporting

    Reports from access control systems that are integrated with CCTV systems can vary and customers should understand the differing methods during the initial evaluation process:

  • How are images stored and reported via the access control system?
  • Some integrated system reports only supply a "hot link" to the CCTV
    Some integrated system reports include a "snap shot" image/picture
    Some integrated system reports actually contain short video clips

  • How much additional cost is associated with the integrating CCTV?
  • Costs can vary significantly depending on reporting and archival time
    Graphic designs and more complex reporting can require significant labor

    Ultimately, customers should diligently consider their immediate and long term goals for their credentialed access and CCTV requirements so "fork lift" upgrades are not required in the future for lack of initial planning.
