IPVideo Corporation, a provider of video management and physical security information management solutions, says it has upgraded its Sentry VMS system.
The Sentry VMS now offers integration with access control systems and its physical security management solution C3 Fusion PSIM for organizations that want to integrate with additional sensor subsystems, IPVideo says. The new access control integration improves response times and efficiency by allowing security administrators to seamlessly retrieve access control data along with video, eliminating the need to switch from system to systems when alarms are activated, the company says.
“As a long-term user of IPVideo's Sentry VMS we are pleased to learn of the new integration capabilities. We can see the value they can provide in enhancing security operations,” said Seve Padilla, director of facility and security services for the Falls Church (Va.) City Public Schools. “Access control is a key component of an organization's safety procedures.”
Sentry VMS integrates with access control systems from leading vendors including ISONAS Security Systems Inc., S2 Security, Lenel, RS2 Technologies, DSX Access Systems Inc. and Imron Corporation, IPVideo says.
The Sentry VMS video management solution provides organizations with a complete solution including software, hardware and storage. Its purpose-built hardware platform is custom designed to withstand with rigors of 24/7 IP security applications, and increased redundancy, performance and simplicity are provided by RAID 1 storage, the company says. Sentry VMS supports all megapixel and HTDV video resolutions. The solution offers system health monitors that send alerts if a system is disturbed by power outages, cameras offline, temperatures out of range, etc.
