OnSSI and Galaxy Control integrate VMS and access control
OnSSI announces that the System Galaxy access control solution from Galaxy Control Systems fully integrates and supports its Ocularis 5 Video Management Software (VMS). The integration of these VMS and access control solutions provides users with enhanced real-time situational awareness and streamlines the post-event investigation process.
Working in concert with System Galaxy, OnSSI’s Ocularis 5 provides information that lets operators assess situations as they unfold, and use the information gathered to determine the best course of action.
The integration between Ocularis 5 and System Galaxy enables real-time access control activity and user-defined, real-time on-screen event annotation. Each door can be assigned a preset NVR/DVR and camera, with alerts triggered by valid or invalid access attempts, which are tied to pre- and post-event video. Upon receiving an alert, operators can engage the full power of both Ocularis and System Galaxy to quickly and easily retrieve live video, control cameras, lock/unlock doors and much more. In addition to delivering unprecedented real-time situational awareness the combined solution provides faster and more accurate retrieval of correlated video and data for more effective and efficient post-event investigations.
Ocularis 5 is based on a new recorder that accommodates a higher density of cameras per recorder while maximizing HDD storage without the need for user configuration. It features automatic load balancing for managing recordings across system servers. Ocularis 5 also allows for multiple different recorders to be combined under the same Base (including legacy Ocularis 4.X recorders) with centralized user and event management.
System Galaxy is a scalable access control and management solution that integrates security and building management functions. Additional features include active directory support to enable real-time identity management, individualized identity-based door access, and the ability to generate specific reports for each screen view or credential holder. Data can be shared with other systems such as time and attendance, visitor management, time clocks, parking garages and personal messaging. System Galaxy accommodates unlimited users and is also accessible from mobile web browsers and designed for backward compatibility with all legacy Galaxy systems.
