Arcules, globally renowned innovators in integrated video cloud services and solutions, have announced the addition of Access Control-as-a-Service (ACaaS). Arcules now enables customers to centrally manage access control effectively across geographically dispersed business locations in a single, intuitive user interface. Arcules ACaaS The Arcules service bundle provides video analytics, advanced video management of video surveillance data and access control information in one unified solution. End users can correlate video surveillance data with access control events, associate cameras with doors, view the live status of doors, and authorise access to grant or restrict permissions, all through the Arcules portal. Arcules also integrates alarms across the video and access services. The bundle eliminates the need to configure multiple pieces of software to manage VMS and access control users and cardholders. The Arcules ACaaS is also available as a standalone cloud service, providing the same easy to use interface, user management and access functionality, without video data or video analytics. The Arcules ACaaS will support access control through integration with Axis Communications’ AXIS A1601 Network Door Controllers The Arcules ACaaS will support access control through integration with Axis Communications’ AXIS A1601 Network Door Controllers.
