The municipality of Haarlemmermeer wanted to replace the existing access control system and bring city hall security up to modern standards. They looked for a system that could manage all municipal buildings centrally. For this reason, the system had to be easily expandable. The access control system also had to include camera supervision of employees' sign-in and sign-out process.
Existing access control infrastructure
When implementing the new system, the municipality wanted to reuse existing infrastructure and to be flexible in terms of the types of card readers that could be connected; an unambiguous design was preferred. Furthermore, the system had to be able to be expanded to include burglary protection and parking control in the future. There was also the desire to scale down and improve management of the current key plan.
Integrated video management
The municipality uses access control and IP video on the AEOS platform. AEOS also takes future desires into account such as intrusion detection, lockers and filing cabinets, wireless online locks and key cabinets. All this functionality can be implemented at a later date using the same AEOS platform and the same controller by adding the desired software components - also new locations can be easily added.
AEOS was implemented in November 2010 with reuse of the existing infrastructure. AEOS provides access control and IP video management in a single integrated system. In this manner, cameras can be operated from a single location and the foundation is laid for simple, efficient integration and expansion with other systems in the future.
