Paxton has announced the integration of its networked access control system, Net2, with Hanwha Techwin’s newest video management system, namely Wisenet WAVE. The integration means Net2 users are able to instantly view event-driven video captured by HD IP network cameras connected to Wisenet WAVE.
Available via a free Net2 plug-in, the integration also allows end users to visually verify anyone attempting to gain access to a site, as well as provide video verification of alarm incidents from within the Net2 Client software.
The plug-in simplifies the process of integrating the two systems and offers an improved GUI for live viewing, image replay and the exporting of associated video surveillance cameras directly in the Net2 Client application. The plug-in supports Net2 Versions 5 and 6 and is available from Hanwha Techwin’s Technical Support free of charge.
Gareth O’Hara, Paxton’s chief sales officer, said: “We put our core values of simplicity and quality at the heart of everything we do in order to provide our customers with a world-class service. It’s a pleasure to work with Hanwha Techwin. The business shares our values of providing a simple, yet powerful user experience. This integration offers customers an enhanced functionality such that they can get derive even more benefits from the Net2 system.”
Uri Guterman, head of product and marketing for Hanwha Techwin Europe, added: “Wisenet solutions are now regularly being specified alongside Net2. We firmly believe that this integration offers real-life practical benefits to users who wish to take full advantage of their IP network-based access control and video surveillance systems.”
Detail on Net2 and Wisenet WAVE
Net2 is Paxton’s networked access control system. It can be administered using one or more PCs and may be monitored and managed from a central location. It’s a complete solution that encompasses wireless and door entry.
Wisenet WAVE is designed to make it almost effortless to monitor up to 64 HD video streams. An auto-discover feature ensures connected cameras and third party IP network devices can be addressed and set up in just minutes. An intuitive ‘drag and drop’ tool makes it easy to set up a display of live and recorded images on a single screen or video wall with customisable layouts and sizes.
Other key features include a virtual PTZ which, with just a click of the mouse, enables operators to zoom in to see close-up detail of any suspicious activity, while motion detection and video analytics support may be configured to generate alerts when user-defined incidents occur.
