LENSEC recently announced an integration between its PVMS software and DNA Fusion access control from Open Options. According to the company, the integration enables users to control doors by issuing access control commands to locks and devices. From the Video Management Software, users can manage access points from the map module or the camera viewer module, or by incorporating automated logic workflows from Perspective VMS. PVMS pulls event information from DNA Fusion and can import Open Options devices from the access control configuration database.

With the integration, access control events are searchable in Perspective VMS. Events may be associated with security video and tagged as they occur. Events are also found in PVMS transaction history reports, allowing system administrators to filter and search for activity, such as cardholder access, invalid entries, doors forced open, and more. The associated video improves the record with visual verification. Video of the access control event can be extracted, shared internally, and downloaded as watermarked evidence for law enforcement or third parties.

“We are excited about our partnership with Open Options,” said Michael Trask, director of sales, North America, LENSEC in a statement. “Close integrations with third-party systems are how LENSEC achieves beneficial results for joint customers. With this integration, end users now have a way for security operators to make quick and solid decisions and to mitigate risk better and faster than before.”

“Today’s modern enterprises require integrated solutions to make the most of their technology investments,” said Chuck O’Leary, Senior Vice President, Americas, ACRE Access Control.
