Integrated Access Control and Biometric Time and Attendance Systems Streamline Management Processes for Multi-Site Enterprises
Integrated Access Control and Biometric Time and Attendance Systems can help improve management processes for companies occupying multiple sites and deliver very good overall results, as reported by a South African red meat processor.
The company, the Cavalier Group, is a vertically integrated supplier of beef and lamb meat to retail chains across South Africa and the rest of the world as well.
As it grew, the company found it difficult to integrate its various systems (access control, biometric time and attendance, monitoring sensors, CCTV etc.) across its various locations. They have only managed to do so after opting for an integrated solution that brings all their various systems together in a seamless manner, using a single platform for ease of access.
Tensor Integrated Access Control Systems – the perfect integrated multi-site security solutions
Organizations 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.
