CEM upgrades AC2000

August 2011 Access Control & Identity Management

New Web applications and improved device support.

Many new features in the release of CEM’s AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) version 6.3 software include AC2000 Web applications and support for the DSC Power Series intruder alarm panels and American Dynamics latest video security products, such as Hybrid-DVR (HDVR), and Videoedge NVR4 video solution.

“The AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) system is continually developed to meet both industry needs and customer feature requests,” said Zane Greeff technical director for Elvey Security Technologies. “AC2000 SE v6.3 software offers customers powerful integration capabilities with the latest security products released by DSC and American Dynamics and has a host of new functions that enhance user operations such as AC2000 Web applications.”

The Web applications enable customers to access various AC2000 SE applications via a standard Web browser, without having to install dedicated AC2000 software. Web applications include Web Visitor Management, Web Alarm Status Display and Web Door Status Display. Using the AC2000 Web visitor management module, customers can now schedule new visitors, issue visitor cards and create a multitude of reports all via a Web browser.

In addition to the complete American Dynamics Intellex range, Bosch, Synectics and Indigovision integrations, AC2000 SE v6.3 now supports full two-way integration with American Dynamics Hybrid-DVR (HDVR) and Videoedge NVR4 video products. Customers can control cameras, view live camera footage and playback recorded video footage all from within the central CEM alarm and event monitoring application.

Version 6.3 also features increased support for the DSC Power Series range of intruder alarm panels. Using a fully integrated virtual intruder keypad, intruder functions such as configuring zones and arming/disarming can be centrally performed using the CEM system. Inputs from the Power Series panels can also be placed on central alarm event display graphical maps with SMS text messages/e-mails sent upon a given intruder alarm. This allows the operator to quickly identify an alarm and its exact location, creating fast response time and a centralised viewpoint of all security systems.

AC2000 SE v 6.3 also offers a range of other features and improvements including the getting started wizard which helps system administrators to configure a new system. There is also a personnel CSV import tool allowing system administrators to import cardholder details into the AC2000 SE personnel application via a simple, intuitive user interface. Zone occupancy is a new addition for use in car parks, for example where customers can set a maximum occupancy level which then triggers an open/close command when the zone or car park becomes full.
