The integration provides users video management and access control through a cloud-based single pane of glass experience.
Arcules, a leading provider of unified, intelligent video-surveillance-as-a-service solutions, announced the integration of its cloud-based video platform with the Genea access control platform. The combined cloud-based solution allows businesses to manage access to facilities, validate activities with video data, and quickly react to protect employees and company assets.
The unified security solution incorporates video feeds for real-time monitoring, video playback of cloud-based video, camera mapping to door locations for instant video verification, and a camera wall feature to display multiple live camera views. The resulting combination of access control management with video to verify events or incidents provides organizations with powerful data-driven situational awareness across all their sites and locations.
The integration also boasts all the advantages of cloud-based security solutions, including system-wide monitoring in real-time across multiple locations, automatic updates, reduced maintenance, robust data analysis, and the peace of mind of not getting locked into long-term capital commitments. Additionally, the combined Arcules-Genea solution works with existing hardware, meaning there is no need to replace existing investments, such as door controllers, readers, or security cameras.
"We continue to deliver cloud-based solutions that help our customers make data-driven decisions, protect their people and assets, and improve their overall businesses," said Steve Prodger, Chief Revenue Officer, Arcules. "The opportunity to team with Genea accelerates that objective through the combination of Arcules’ cloud video capability and Genea’s expertise in access control. The result is a very powerful security solution that provides users a single interface for access control and video management with all the ease of acquisition, operational simplicity, worry-free maintenance and data richness that cloud-based solutions offer.”
The integration of Arcules and Genea leverages the combination of video and facility access control data across geographically dispersed sites to provide organizations insights into how their facilities are being used, identify potential safety and security situations, and allow data-driven decisions to improve the effectiveness of business and the safety of employees.
"The integration between Genea Access Control and Arcules gives users huge technological and operational advantages," said Michael Wong, CEO, Genea. "These cloud-based solutions centralize security within a single pane of glass, helping IT and security teams achieve improved security and efficiency. The partnership with Arcules supports our combined goals to provide powerful cloud services across a wide range of markets."
