Bringing integrated security to the edge

April 2017 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Access Control & Identity Management, Integrated Solutions

Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, introduced the iSTAR Ultra Video, a palm-sized solution that delivers integrated, small site security scaled for enterprise management and performance. Using C•CURE 9000 Security and Event Management software from Software House or American Dynamics’ victor Unified client, iSTAR Ultra Video brings access control and video recording to the edge, allowing users to remotely control up to eight doors and eight IP video cameras using a single appliance, without the need for server software at each site.

The iSTAR Ultra Video reduces installation and infrastructure costs by eliminating the need for separate devices and network connections. With scalability to thousands of sites, it is ideal for enterprise environments with unmanned sites that require a high level of security, such as power sub-stations, data centres, server farms, fibre huts and other utility and telecommunication sites. AES 256-bit FIPS 140-2 network encryption with custom key management and DoS protection help avert potential network threats. Up to 500 000 cardholders can be managed in the device’s local memory.

Using a 1TB on-device storage drive for video surveillance and a separate solid-state drive for its local database for access control storage, iSTAR Ultra Video remains operational even when the network is down, capable of making access decisions and recording video until network connectivity is restored. Each iSTAR Ultra Video device includes American Dynamics’ VideoEdge Network Video Recorder firmware that enables end users to use transcoding, Smart Search and other VideoEdge features. Up to 6 TB of external storage can be added to the device, providing extensive local recording capacity.

“With iSTAR Ultra Video, enterprise customers can easily extend the power and functionality of their C•CURE 9000 or victor Unified system to large networks of distributed sites without many of the traditional costs and installation concerns of adding separate access control and video products,” said Rafael Schrijvers, access control product marketing manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products. “This secure, cost-effective solution enables single point monitoring and control of a security system that can encompass even remote locations.”

End users can monitor video surveillance and access control events, manage personnel, create reports, display dynamic views, and monitor system activity from a PC or by using C•CURE 9000 or victor Unified full clients, a web client or mobile app. iSTAR Ultra Video provides access control through IP-ACM Ethernet door modules, which feature AES-256 encryption, PoE and a configurable offline mode.

iSTAR Ultra Video can be used in both LAN and WAN environments, and offers secure connectivity over a public network using fully secured gateway software that also enables Cloud connectivity.
