In today’s security environment it makes sense to incorporate a CCTV installation with access control systems. By combining both an access control and a CCTV setup, you’ll be producing far more sophisticated video data for your security system.
For instance, take an access control system where proximity cards are used. If this isn’t coupled with a CCTV setup, somebody could gain access to the premises with either a lost or stolen card. Although workers might ultimately realise that trespassers had got into the building, the access control system specifically would not identify anything wrong.
Of course, the flipside is having an access control system that is combined with a CCTV system. This kind of network would usually include IP video cameras, possibly with smart video analytics software.
There are a variety of ways that a system of both access control and CCTV can be organised. One possibility is that the CCTV is installed to record the entry every time an employee makes use of a proximity card. By incorporating video analytics, the cameras will be able to identify if the person is authorised to be using the card. If this is not the case, then the system would sound an alarm.
Instead of recording and storing countless hours of footage, which can often be tiresome to sift through, some facilities might wish to keep a permanent log video from the entrances at those times when the access control system is triggered.
