CCTV-access control integration

Hanwha Techwin Wisenet SSM is integrated with TDSi EXgarde PRO 

The Wisenet SSM video management software (VMS) from Hanwha Techwin can now integrate with EXgarde PRO access management app from TDSi.

A transaction server module has been added to the Wisenet SSM VMS to connect access control activity with related video captured by Wisenet cameras.

If an unauthorised person attempted to gain entry into a sensitive area, for instance, an alert would be generated and images displayed on the control room video wall or spot monitor.

Similarly, if a nearby PTZ dome camera is triggered it will activate a pre-configured tour of surrounding areas to give operators situational awareness and the access control point involved would be displayed on a map of the building.

EXgarde PRO is pitched at buildings of all sizes, from controlling just one door with a handful of users to thousands of doors at multiple sites with thousands of users. It integrates myriad security and building management systems – such as fire, intrusion, building automation/management, active firectory and biometric tech – into a single database and user interface.

Wisenet SSM manages video footage captured from not only Wisenet IP network cameras, recording devices and servers, but many third-party systems related to access control, intruder alarms,  specialist analytics applications and more.

“TDSi access control and Hanwha Techwin surveillance solutions are increasingly being specified for the same projects,” said Tim Biddulph, head of product and solutions for Hanwha Techwin Europe. “With this in mind, system integrators understandably expect a high level of interaction between the two technologies in order to provide their end-user clients with a complete, effective solution.

Hanwha Techwin Wisenet SSM is integrated with TDSi EXgarde PRO We are delighted to have worked in partnership with TDSi technical team to ensure we deliver added value to our mutual customers.”

Hanwha Techwin (formerly Samsung Techwin) develops and supplies video surveillance solutions for IP-video, analogue and hybrid systems.

TDSi develops access control systems, biometric readers, security management software, IP CCTV video management software.
