Integrated Access Control Systems can help improve hospital security
Integrated Access Control Systems that deliver superior security and prevent the access of unauthorized personnel should be a compulsory feature in any hospital, and recent events at Abergavenny’s Nevill Hall Hospital prove that only too well.
The sites run by Aneurin Bevan University Health Board are currently having a security and delivery review following an incident when a man attacked his wife, who was working as a nurse at hospital, after gaining access to the secure site.
The man was jailed for 15 years for the attempted murder of his wife in the intensive care unit where she worked.
Stage one of the review, which focused on the physical security of the building, CCTV and access control systems has been completed and £120,000 in funding will be used to improve the current security measures.
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.
