Hikvision UK & Ireland report the integration of the Hikvision automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system into the Paxton’s Net2 access control system. As the firms say, benefits to installers can be passed onto their end-user customers.
Working as a stand-alone product or part of a wider Hikvision system this integration allows legacy and new Hikvision ANPR systems to be operated from the Net2 system helping to control a gate or barrier by associating a car’s registration number with their access control credential such as entry card or key fob over multiple formats which use the Wiegand interface. This means the user does not have to leave the vehicle to action the gate or barrier.
Paxton report that Net2 has more than 150 additional buildings fitted out with it every week. The security system offers central administration and control of sites ranging from one to hundreds of doors, and thousands of users.
Peter Ma, Technical Lead for Hikvision UK and Ireland said “Hikvision are global leaders in surveillance solutions and automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR) is being widely used across the UK and growing from strength to strength. This partnership takes both Hikvision’s and Paxton’s expertise and knowledge in their respective fields and applies this into a solution that will take our ANPR solution to a new level. Knowing we have fully integrated our hardware with Paxton’s software will give installers and end-users piece of mind that the solution is partnership of knowledge. It has been developed to make the experience for the installer and end user as seamless as you would expect, with none of the usual compatibility and integration issues.
And Gareth O’Hara, Chief Sales Officer at Paxton said: “Our market leading Net2 access control is built upon the foundations of being easy to install, configure and operate, whilst Hikvision are a company which pride themselves on product innovation. We feel this combination of expertise has provided an ideal integrated solution to suit the needs of installers.”
