Currently supported VMS integrations include OnSSI, Milestone and Mirasys, with more to follow later this year. ZKAccess and C2P solution features The combined ZKAccess and C2P solution has many other useful features including User-defined Real-time Event alerts, a powerful Text–to-Video Search engine that includes a choice of Video or Excel export capability of the search results. As noted by ZKAccess CEO Larry Reed, system integration is the key in improving organisational efficiencies and thereby lowering operational costs. "By providing our customers a single user interface in which they can search for time-synchronised door access and video events, we can reduce our customers’ valuable time spent analysing security breaches. The simplicity of our ZKBioSecurity platform is that after customers complete its setup, they seldom need to touch our software again. If the customer later wishes to analyse a suspected security breach, the C2P database contains all the customer’s door access time stamps and video recording. Our customers will find using C2P to be a huge time-saver, simple to use and extremely cost-effective."
Access control events from ZKBioSecurity software are presented in the Arteco VEMS interface in real time ZKAccess, a division of ZKTeco and provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, announced the integration of its access control platform with Arteco, a provider of video event management solutions.

ZKAccess COO Manish Dalal and CEO Larry Reed participating at PSA-TEC 2016 ZKAccess, a leading provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, recently returned from another successful appearance at PSA-TEC. Physical security education Presented by the PSA Security Network, TEC is the premier education and networking event that is open to everyone in the physical security industry. TEC hosts representatives from physical security integrators, manufacturers, and other industry associations every year. TEC 2016 featured three core days (May 10th-12th) of quality education and certification programs, networking, and dedicated exhibit hours designed to advance the skills and expertise of security industry professionals. Advanced biometric access control Each year, ZKAccess proudly conducts at PSA their highly attended Advanced Biometric Access Control CEU class which is accredited by the ESA, BICSI, State of NJ and the State of Florida. The class walks students through the evolution of access control, providing a clear understanding of why each new technology succeeded its predecessor. Topics covered include why PIN code locks succeeded metal key ‘n lock systems, why barcode and mag stripe readers succeeded PIN code readers, what prompted the introduction of today’s common RFID systems, and, now, why biometric security is becoming more relevant and within customers’ budgets and technical expertise. Essential information and networking The ZKAccess course was one of 50 courses offered by PSA and ZKAccess was one of over 100 leading security vendors who participated at TEC. "We are both pleased and honored to be invited by PSA to participate in TEC each year," says Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. "Participating at TEC not only allows us to introduce essential access control information to attending students, but also provides us an opportunity to network with some of the brightest talented leaders in the security industry from whom we learn where to focus our R&D to best serve our customers."
Harnessing the convenience of wireless communication, the Wireless Bridgesaves the installer material cost and valuable time ZKAccess, a leading provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, is pleased to announce the availability of its Wireless Bridge kit for ZKAccess RFID and Biometric door controllers. The kit provides customers the absolute fastest, easiest, least expensive way to install and manage their ZKAccess door access control systems. Wireless Bridge is a compact 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi kit designed to allow individual ZKAccess C3 and InBio door controllers to connect with wireless access points up to 300 feet away when the door controllers are installed outdoors. Typical Wi-Fi ranges up to 150 feet can be expected when ZKAccess door controllers are installed indoors. Range boosters are available upon request. The Wireless Bridge kit includes a PCB board, mounting plate, external antenna and connecting wires. The kit can be quickly and easily installed inside the ZKAccess door controller’s metal enclosure. Operates seamlessly with ZKAccess traditional wired door controllers Harnessing the convenience of wireless communication, the Wireless Bridge saves the installer material cost and valuable time since the installer no longer needs to run CAT5e/6 cable when connecting ZKAccess door access controllers to the network. And, unlike competing vendors whose wireless door controllers all require expensive wireless transmitters (using mesh network design), ZKAccess wireless door controllers operate seamlessly with ZKAccess traditional wired door controllers. "We are very pleased to bring our Wireless Bridge to market," says Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. "Today, customers mostly care about installation cost/time. Prior to our Wireless Bridge, customers had less than a handful of wireless access control vendors to choose from, which allowed for inflated purchase prices. Now with our Wireless Bridge, ZKAccess dealers currently pay less than $950 for a complete 4-door wireless card access system which also includes the readers, REXs, 50 prox cards and software. Now that's a real cost-savings."
