Northern Ireland-based Ambar Systems, a SALTO Certified Partner, has developed a plug-in integration that combines SALTO Systems access control with XProtect software.
It is estimated that more than 10 million people rely on SALTO each day to provide access control. Ambar’s plug-in integrates SALTO Systems directly into XProtect Smart Client, enabling users to control access and monitor video surveillance from a single interface.
Integrating the two systems eliminates the need to run two separate applications and enables the user to open doors while simultaneously viewing video footage of the doors.
The SALTO plug-in captures critical events from the SALTO software and registers them as alarms in XProtect Smart Client. These alarms are automatically linked to relevant video footage from corresponding cameras.
Other key features include:
- Seamless control of cameras in surveillance systems, such as starting/stopping recording, changing video frame rate and moving cameras to focus on a door
- Monitoring events are issued by the Salto system and automatically registered as alerts within the alarm manager in XProtect Smart Client. Full details of the event, card holder, location and time are captured along with the video footage to provide a complete package of surveillance information
- Remote open doors functionality from the XProtect Smart Client.
