Wakefield Grammar School Foundation in Yorkshire, England, has deployed access control and video across its five-school campus.
After determining that the school needed to expand its security out to the perimeter, the campus installed an exacqVision video management system (VMS), Illustra dome and bullet IP cameras and exacqVision network video recorders (NVRs) with Kantech EntraPass access control software pre-installed.
According to the manufacturer Tyco Security Products, the exacqVision Kantech Onboard NVRs provide all-in-one network video surveillance and access control on a single server. With the pre-installed, pre-licensed Kantech EntraPass access control software on the server, they save on hardware expenses and reduce the amount of rack space required. The users can view live or recorded video from the recorder, or remotely using a web browser or separate computer.
Steven Ward, technical director at the Yorkshire-based intaller Reflex Systems, said: “To enhance its perimeter security, Wakefield Grammar School Foundation chose an ideal solution for a campus environment that provides a surveillance solution with built-in access control software. This allows security staff to view and react to both surveillance and access control events in a single interface.”
