Axis has always believed that every business should have access to not only the highest-quality video surveillance technology, but also the best software to monitor and manage their system. In response to customer feedback, the latest innovation in AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry brings together two critical areas of security — video surveillance and access control — in a unified interface.
AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry delivers the primary functions of an access control solution. The software enables the easy management of cardholders and groups, and set up of access rules such as schedules, locations, and credentials. Beyond this, everything you expect from a sophisticated access management system is included: door and zone configurations, multi-factor authentication and customizable card formats.
Video-verification through AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry allows operators to check that the individual entering matches the credentials. In addition, for less busy entrances or out of normal working hours, it’s possible to trigger video, alerts, and actions when, for instance, a visitor is approaching, a door has failed to close properly or access has been denied. Instant alarms can be created for when a door is open for too long or forced open, and specific events can also be used to trigger other actions such as playing audio messages or recording video.
Through the same unified interface, operators can manage access for individuals at any point in time by validating entry by comparing live video with card-holder photo . This might be the case in providing access for visitors or deliveries, or when an authorized member of staff arrives having forgotten or lost their entry credentials. In addition, the solution makes it simple to add new users, or remove those who are no longer authorized for access. The door dashboard can be used to confirm lock status and assist entry by allowing an operator to control doors.
AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry is an out-of-the-box ready solution, and is included in AXIS Camera Station video management software as stand-alone licenses, or pre-loaded on Axis network video recorders (AXIS S11 and AXIS S22). There is no activation fee for AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry and the licensing model is simple: one license per device, no matter whether it is an Axis camera or an Axis door controller.
AXIS Camera Station Secure Entry is optimized for up to 128 doors and up to 10,000 cardholders, with support for multiple credentials per cardholder. The user-friendly, web-based interface makes it simple to add or remove users with easy drag and drop operation. It’s also possible to set up users based on specific criteria such as user location and schedule, so operators can easily control who has access to which access points and at what time.
