June brings a new vcore software release. Vaion has continued to focus on features that bring more value to the user’s organisation and their security team. With the 2.2 release, they introduce the ability for anyone to develop access control integrations with the vcore video management system, as well as privacy masking to vcam devices.
The new generic access control API allows Vaion, access control vendors, or third parties to develop a proxy that facilitates the integration between the systems. This proxy provides a consistent interface to vcore, but with the flexibility to integrate with the access control system as necessary. Vaion has developed an integration with OpenPath using this interface.
Access control integrations
What’s more, the company has partnered with OpenPath in the Safety & Wellness Solutions initiative, “to help companies create a safe workplace, adhere to government compliance regulations, and reduce liability as the world comes back to work.” If anyone is interested in developing an interface to their access control system, Vaion can be contacted to discuss the details.
Once configured on the view of a vcam device, the areas defined by privacy masks apply to Video view and Map view
The company values privacy, and they aim to give customers all the tools they need to stay compliant with the rules and regulations of local or national organisations in matters concerning video surveillance. They are introducing static privacy masking in vcam security cameras so that the users can block the video, recording, and analytics of certain areas where they either don’t have the right or they don’t need to monitor it.
Apply privacy masks
Once configured on the view of a vcam device, the areas defined by privacy masks apply to Video view and Map view. They also apply to rules and searches, as areas that have privacy masks off cannot be searched or have rules run against them.
Other vcore 2.2 features include:
- New counts permissions
- The ability to locate your cameras’ serial numbers with ease
