Integration of video surveillance and access control provides valuable insight

The integration of access control and video surveillance is of increasing interest to stakeholders in a wide variety of markets. Organizations are hungry for data and seek to gain as much information as possible about their business, daily operations, an emergency situation or security breach, and beyond. But there is little value in disparate pieces of information. To find the knowledge behind captured data, it must be combined and presented in an intelligent way — allowing the user to see the ‘big picture’ and make informed decisions based on this comprehensive view.

The collaboration of data presents numerous benefits to users and businesses when it comes to expanding intelligence. In the security market, the ability to analyze both video surveillance and access control data enhances awareness by allowing users to gain greater insight and facilitate faster response. Combining the data into a single management platform ensures ease of use and understanding of critical data points.

At Arteco, we pride ourselves on delivering a wide array of options to help users gain new levels of intelligence to build stronger business programs and enhance safety initiatives. (I know, I know. We say this A LOT. But it is a critical part of our focus and our commitment to our customers.) We understand that our video systems cannot be siloed. That’s why we focus so heavily on ensuring we integrate seamlessly with a wide variety of third-party systems.

Earlier this year, we announced that Arteco Video Event Management Software (VEMS) is now integrated with ZKAccess access control technology. The integration between systems is made possible by Arteco’s Open Connector, an integration platform that streamlines interoperability between third-party systems and the Arteco VEMS platform. Events from ZKBioSecurity management software can be presented in the Arteco VEMS interface in real time — providing users with a complete view of their security alerts.

Now is your chance to see the benefits of this integration in person! Arteco is teaming up with ZKAccess and Accu-Tech for a lunch-and-learn event on Aug. 2 at 9 a.m. at the Accu-Tech branch in Dallas. Attendees will have a hands-on opportunity to view the integration and see how the technologies can be deployed seamlessly in mainstream business and security applications.
