Vicon Debuts New Vicon SMS Access Control with Integrated ViconNet Video Management at ISC West 2009
Vicon SMS and ViconNet Systems Combine to Provide a Uniquely Powerful, Complete, IP-Based Security Solution
Hauppauge, NY - January 28, 2009 - Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of video surveillance systems, announced today that ISC West 2009 will mark the official launch of its new, IP-based access control management system, Vicon SMS. Designed for complete integration with ViconNet digital video management systems, Vicon SMS allows for the automatic linking of ViconNet video with corresponding access control events, which can then be called up and viewed via the Vicon SMS interface.
This new, "best-of-breed" access control system is engineered using third-generation, edge device technology that enables the system to function independently of any PC software. The system is appliance based, consisting of a controller and one or more "nodes" that connect to readers, sensors and other physical security devices. The operating system, database engine and application software reside within these appliances. A browser-based interface allows users to manage and operate the system from any PC with network access using a standard web browser. This browser-based GUI, combined with the appliance-based architecture, makes Vicon SMS incomparably easy to install, operate and maintain. It can accommodate any size installation, from systems employing a few card readers and cameras to enterprise-scale solutions.
"As a full solutions provider, Vicon has always stressed the many benefits of employing systems that are made up of components and software that are designed to work together," explained Margie Gurwin, Vicon's Director of Marketing. "With the addition of Vicon SMS, a top-of-the-line access control solution that integrates fully with our popular ViconNet system, we are pleased to now offer a comprehensive security solution that meets our high standard for seamless compatibility."
Vicon SMS will be offered and supported exclusively through Vicon's network of professional security dealers/installers.
