Access control linked to Siemens DVR system

Bewator : 27 April, 2007  (New Product)
Link between Entro access control product and Siemens DVR enables automatic recording of failed access attempts.
Bewator's award winning Entro access control system, already renowned for its reliability, value for money and scalability, has now evolved even further with the release of Version 5.3. Entro Version 5.3 now facilitates access control integration with the Siemens Building Technologies Sistore Digital Video recording (DVR) range. The new facilities, which are unmatched by any comparable system at this price level, allow powerful security functions, such as support for multiple DVRs and cameras, automatically recording images of failed access attempts, to be implemented easily and cost effectively.

Also upgraded is the Entro reservation system. This is a unique facility based on a web-server option that simply plugs into Entro Segment Controllers and allows them to be used, via an Internet connection, for pre-booking time in a meeting room, in a sports facility or even on a machine in a factory. Not only has the flexibility of this arrangement been increased, it now also offers billing support, so that it can be used to assist in charging for access to specific facilities or items of equipment.

Other new features provided by Entro 5.3 include an option to automatically disable access tags and cards that have not been used for a set period, and enhancements to the presentation of data when Entro is used in conjunction with a PC. Doors and other objects can now, for example, be grouped on the screen by building, block, floor, or almost any other criterion.

The new DVR integration offered by Entro 5.3 provides full compatibility with DVRs in the AX, MX and CX Sistore ranges from Siemens Building Technologies. The DVRs can either be connected directly to the Entro Segment Controllers, which means that no additional servers are needed, or they can be linked via an IP network to provide maximum versatility, especially in larger installations.

The DVRs can be configured so that recording is automatically triggered by an Entro event, such as the use of an access token or a keypad. Recording can also be manually activated from supervisory PCs within the Entro system. Live CCTV images from any camera can be viewed simply by clicking the appropriate icon on the PC screen. To help users make best use of stored images, video search and playback facilities are linked to the Entro event log.

Entro 5.3 retains all of the features that have made earlier versions so successful and popular, including economy, straightforward configuration, and ease of use. Version 5.3 is fully compatible with existing Entro 5 hardware, and users wishing to upgrade can do so simply by installing the new firmware.
