OnSSI is further expanding on its goal of delivering open-platform systems that provide the highest value and performance to customers with the integration of Ocularis 5 Video Management Software (VMS) with the latest version of DNA Fusion™ access control platform from Open Options.
Ocularis 5 and DNA Fusion v6.4 integration
“This integration between Ocularis 5 and DNA Fusion v6.4 provides users with the ability to easily combine access control and video into a powerful, effective, intelligent solution that increases both security and situational awareness,” said Ken LaMarca, VP of Sales and Marketing, OnSSI. “Because Ocularis 5 and DNA Fusion are built on open-architecture platforms, this integrated solution is capable of delivering more robust intelligence across multiple platforms.”
The integration between Ocularis 5 and DNA Fusion v6.4 provides live and recorded video associated with access control events from within DNA Fusion with auto call-up capability. Users can view multiple cameras from within the solution, control PTZ cameras, drag and drop saved recordings for playback, scan for cameras and more.
“For nearly two decades, Open Options has provided superior access control solutions with a commitment to customer service and open-platform products,” said Steve Fisher, CEO, Open Options. “This integration with Ocularis 5 furthers our commitment to open architecture and consistently providing our customers with reliable, cutting-edge technologies.”
Ocularis 5 video management software
Ocularis 5 provides stronger network and video security with features including 256-bit AES encryption from Clients to Recorders, a scrambled recorded video database to protect the integrity of recorded video, and the ability to record directly to a NAS anywhere on the network. Ocularis 5 is designed as an intelligent, cost-effective platform that simplifies workloads and system management. There is no need to register camera licences and MAC addresses. It features automatic load balancing for managing recordings across system servers. Unique to Ocularis, Critical Camera Failover ensures continuous sight by switching to a failover camera in as little as two seconds. Ocularis 5 also allows for multiple different recorders to be combined under the same Base (including legacy Ocularis 4.X recorders) with centralised user and event management.
DNA Fusion access control software
DNA Fusion, Open Options’ flagship access control software, is an open platform solution that interfaces seamlessly with other systems, such as video, biometrics, wireless locks and intercoms to provide a complete access control solution including door control, visitor management and photo ID management. DNA Fusion can be managed via a standard Client, the web or Apple and Android smartphones.
