Access Control

Let us build you a system that integrates your security and computer networks together


With the technology to view webcams thousands of miles away, why not update your access control and ability to check on YOUR livelihood without leaving the comfort of your own home. Check on "false alarms" before you go, and let law enforcement know about actual burglar on premises for their safety.

Access Control Solutions

We offer a full range of access control solutions that give you the power to know who is in your facility, and when. With our access control systems, you can prevent access by unauthorized visitors and restrict access to sensitive areas of your organization.

  • Electronic Access Control: Track employee access, generate traffic reports, prevent access by unauthorized visitors, and restrict access on a person-by-person basis.
  • Biometrics: Lost cards, forgotten passwords, and outdated keypads are a thing of the past. Biometric identification through fingerprints, iris scans, facial identification, and other technologies is unobtrusive, but reliably restricts access to your facilities and sensitive areas.
  • Visitor Management: Track and monitor where visitors are inside your organization. Go beyond a simple badge or barcode to track usage statistics by specific visitors and provide documentation of visitor locations within a facility.
  • HSPD-12 & FIPS-201 Compliant Solutions: Government agencies and private businesses that need to comply with security mandates require a security contractor who understands those mandates. Tyco Integrated Security offers solutions that are deployment-ready.


IP Camera Systems

What is IP camera?

An IP camera is a networked digital video camera that transmits data over a Fast Ethernet link. IP cameras (also called "network cameras") are most often used for IP surveillance, a digitized and networked version of closed-circuit television (CCTV).

Benefits of IP camera over analog technology include:

  • Remote administration from any location.
  • Digital zoom.
  • The ability to easily send images and video anywhere with an Internet connection.
  • Progressive scanning, which enables better quality images extracted from the video, especially for moving targets.
  • Adjustable frame rates and resolution to meet specific needs.
  • Two-way communication.
  • The ability to send alerts if suspicious activity is detected.
  • Lower cabling requirements.
  • Support for intelligent video.

Disadvantages of IP surveillance include greater complexity and bandwidth demands. One alternative for organizations with substantial investment in analog technology is to use a video server to, in effect, turn analog CCTV cameras to IP cameras. A video server is a small standalone server that converts analog signals to a digital format and provides the analog cameras with IP addresses.

Nevertheless, because it offers much more sophisticated capabilities, IP surveillance is increasingly replacing analog CCTV. An industry report from International Data Corporation (IDC) predicts that shipments of IP cameras and related products will increase 45% between 2009 and 2013.
