|Pelco announces the integration of Digital Sentry Series with TAC's Vista solution|
are pleased to announce the successful integration of TAC Vista 5.1
, the latest version of its VistaTM
building management system, with Pelco's Digital Sentry Series of digital video recording systems. Both Pelco and TAC are companies of Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management.
This integration presents building automation and video security data and alarms on a single screen to simplify the task of interpreting events and taking appropriate action. The integration also means less training is required, and more informed decisions can be made which facilitate a safer work environment.
Combining the functionality of Vista with Pelco video creates greater value than using the two as separate systems. Data from the HVAC system can control video recording, while alarms and other information from the video system are collected in the same database and can influence the control systems in the building.
Vista already has electronic access control as an integrated function. The addition of video security further enhances the overall security capability of the system.
"There is a powerful, technical, and commercial logic to this development. We have a significant and growing presence in the security market, and our users can now benefit from Pelco's market-leading analog and digital video management expertise," said TAC Director of Product Management, Rolf Olsson. "Our LON-based open systems architecture is perfectly suited to this purpose," he added.
"TAC and PELCO customers can now benefit from an all in one solution that will manage their building and the security of their building from a single application. This is definitely a great advantage" said Stéphane Lantoine, Business Development Manager EMEA for PELCO.
