Access built on open strategy

February 2014 Access Control & Identity Management

IndigoVision has released its twenty-third Integration Module, enabling data from S2 access control systems to be seamlessly managed within IndigoVision’s IP video security solution.

The S2 Integration Module continues IndigoVision’s open approach and strategy for security systems integration, giving greater freedom of choice and better system scalability with exceptional future proofing of security installations.

“There is a growing trend among video security manufacturers to acquire access control companies,” states John Semple, IndigoVision’s head of product management, “Having a single manufacturer for both access control and video security may sound ideal, but there are major issues with that approach.”

The principal issue is that of limited choice. Different access control companies have strengths in different market verticals or geographies, due to specific product features or support infrastructure.

IndigoVision’s open approach to integration gives greater freedom of choice, allowing customers to use the best access control system for their individual requirements. The IndigoVision S2 Integration Module was developed as a result of government, retail and transport projects, where IndigoVision and S2 have strong experience.

Another issue with a single manufacturer providing both access control and video is limited scalability. When multiple sites need to be connected in a single security system, those sites often have existing access control systems installed.

IndigoVision’s open strategy means existing access control systems, from multiple manufacturers, can be seamlessly integrated into video. IndigoVision now has twenty-three Integration Modules, covering leading access control systems, including; Lenel, Gallagher, Honeywell and Software House, giving better system scalability.

By giving both better system scalability and greater freedom of choice, IndigoVision’s open approach and strategy for security systems integration clearly delivers exceptional future proofing of security installations.
