Deploying access control systems for healthcare facilities is always a challenging task, experts argue
Designing and installing an access control system that fit the healthcare facilities’ needs for security, organizational efficiency and operational convenience is always a challenging task, given the complex landscape involved, experts in the field have argued.
One of the main advantages provided by access control systems is using solely credentials stored on smart cards or fobs in order to enable staff to access only the areas they are permitted to be in. Plus, lost or stolen credentials are removed from the system in seconds, ensuring the facility remains secure at all times.
Healthcare facilities have many concerns to address including employee and visitor security, securing narcotics and securing valuable assets. However, the integration of emergency notification and notification capabilities within state of the art access control solutions can alleviate some of those concerns and is definitely a trending priority with health care professionals.
Wireless is another technology sweet spot in the healthcare access control market, enabling unique solutions to otherwise difficult installations, where direct wiring is out of the question — yet security monitoring and controlled access are a must.
Tensor Integrated Access Control Systems deliver superior security and reliability
Business owners who’re looking to improve their site’s security and prevent crime can do so by installing a comprehensive, high-end CCTV surveillance system, fully integrated with a secure and reliable Access Control solution.
Tensor has an extensive experience in both segments (CCTV and Access Control) and we are able to easily offer such an extensive level of functionality for all of our systems.
As they’re built around the same cutting-edge technology platform, Tensor.NET, both the WinAC.NET and WinTA.NET suites support an extensive level of CCTV integration.
Video clips retrieved from CCTV cameras are associated with access control activity are available when CCTV is integrated with Tensor.NET.
The cameras are allocated to location entries created in Tensor.NET, which are then linked to smart card scanners or push buttons in the Hardware Manager. Furthermore, multiple cameras can be allocated to the same location, or multiple locations can be assigned to the same camera and lock sensors are connected directly to the CCTV’s DVR.
As a lock is released, an alarm event triggers the recording of video footage for the event. This footage is then available for playback in Tensor.NET, either by location or as a link in an access control report. Screen displays are provided to report upon access events, including links to play the related video clip.
Additionally, the application allows either live or historic video to be viewed for periods not linked to any specific Access Control event.
If you’d like to find out more about Tensor’s CCTV integration options, as well as the multiple useful features provided by our Time and Attendance and Access Control systems, just contact us or Book a Demo, we’ll be sure to answer all of your queries on the matter.
