Access control with IP surveillance

July 2016 Access Control & Identity Management, Integrated Solutions, Products

Access control should not only focus on the technology typically associated with visitor management and time and attendance such as card and biometric readers, and physical elements such as booms and guards. This is according to Marco de Ru, CTO at MiRO, who says that IP surveillance has a large role to play in an integrated holistic solution.

He explains that Milestone Professional VMS allows business estate managers to run licence plate recognition (LPR) alongside traditional access control solutions at entrances and exits to estates. Milestone’s XProtect LPR reads licence plate information from vehicles and links the licence plate information with video. Advanced matching logic makes it possible to compare recognised number plates with pre-defined lists and initiate automated actions, such as opening a gate, thus increasing work productivity.

De Ru suggests the use of this Milestone solution in conjunction with VIVOTEK IP cameras. The deployment of a 60 fps vari-focal P-iris camera such as the VIVOTEK IB9381-HT is ideal for entrance point to estates. VIVOTEK’s sophisticated Smart Stream II technology enables the camera to optimise quality for desired regions and thereby maximises the efficiency of bandwidth usage.

This day/night camera is also equipped with WDR Pro and SNV, ensuring superb image-detail in all lighting conditions. A robust IP66-rated and IK10-rated metal housing provides protection against the elements as well as acts of vandalism and other physical impacts.

At the entrance to buildings, De Ru posits the use of the Milestone Professional system with additional third party analytical software and the VIVOTEK FD9171, to provide accurate counting of people entering and leaving the premises. This is particularly useful at closing time to ensure that everyone who earlier entered the building has also exited the building.
