Cabfind.com see the wider benefits of integrating access control and video surveillance
When Cabfind.com moved into their new headquarters in Birkenhead, they were looking for a complete security system combining access control with IP video surveillance to safeguard their staff and business assets. The transport-on-demand service provider asked NW Systems to design a solution using the latest technology.
NW Systems met Cabfind.com’s requirements by creating a pure IP-based, fully integrated access control and video surveillance system – one of the first systems of its kind in the UK.
A mix of high-end Axis network cameras were installed inside and outside the building, and integration of access control was achieved using Axis door control hardware, Imron’s access control software and Milestone’s video management software (XProtect).
This integration allows authorised Cabfind users to view access control and alarm transactions alongside time-synchronised, HD quality video recordings either on site, or remotely via smart mobile devices. The combined systems also offer operational efficiencies and productivity benefits by automating many of the tasks that previously would have consumed the time of Cabfind’s IT, HR and security teams.
