Ambar Systems, a SALTO Certificated Partner based in Antrim, Northern Ireland, has developed a plug-in integration that combines SALTO Systems access control with XProtect software.
SALTO Systems are world leaders in advanced wire free and wireless access control solutions. Every day over 10 million people rely on SALTO to provide total control over who is able to access what, where and when at all times.
The plug-in integrates SALTO Systems directly into XProtect Smart Client and allows the user to control access and monitor video surveillance from one unified interface, eliminating the need to run two separate applications. The SALTO plug-in integration 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.
Key features include:
- Users can seamlessly control cameras in their surveillance system, 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.
- Allows users to open doors remotely from the XProtect Smart Client.
