DSC breakfast with Elvey

June 2011 News

Before the April public holiday madness started in earnest, Elvey Security Technologies hosted a series of breakfast seminars with partner Tyco to introduce its customers to some of the products it distributed from DSC and American Dynamics, both Tyco companies. The main attraction was the DSC webEntry System that offers ‘access control in a box’, along with a Web interface and seamlessly integrated into DSC alarm systems.

webEntry does not require a dedicated PC or special access control software. Instead, the controller combines Web server and access control functionalities into one unit allowing the user to administer the system and receive remote notification of events and alarms via their browser.

The system is designed to be easy to set up and plug-and-play network ready. The optional TimeManager software allows for in-depth time and attendance reporting using existing access card readers and ID cards.

Tyco SA’s Ernest Mallett also presented the DSC sDCM300 door control module. The sDCM300 is a low-cost, two-door controller that interfaces third-party readers to the webEntry system. It also boasts offline capabilities of holding up to 10 000 card holders and 8000 transactions.

American Dynamics surveillance solutions were also presented to attendees by Mallett. Two of the products in focus were the TVR-VS and TVR embedded digital video recorders (DVRs).

The TVR-VS offers users H.264 hardware compression, four video inputs, one audio input using the OggVorbis compression standard, multizone motion detection and the option to export video clips with the appropriate player onto removable USB drives. The TVR offers H.264 video compression, audio for all channels using OggVorbis, but is available in four, eight, and 16 video channel models. It sports multizone motion detection, an option to e-mail alarm image upon motion or alarm, as well as an option to select the number of days to keep recorded video, and simultaneous playback of up to eight cameras from local interface.
