Vicon Breaks Into Access Control Market

Hauppauge, N.Y.

Video surveillance systems provider Vicon Industries Inc. will debut its new IP-based access control management system at ISC West 2009 in Las Vegas. The official launch of the Vicon SMS links ViconNet video with corresponding access control events, which can then be called up and viewed via the Vicon SMS interface.

The edge device technology enables the system to function independently of any PC software, according to the company. The application-based system consists of a controller and one or more “nodes” that connects to readers, sensors and other physical security devices. The operating system, database engine and application software reside within these appliances.

“As a full solutions provider, Vicon has always stressed the many benefits of employing systems that are made up of components and software that are designed to work together,” says Margie Gurwin, Vicon’s director of marketing. “With the addition of Vicon SMS, a top-of-the-line access control solution that integrates fully with our popular ViconNet system, we are pleased to now offer a comprehensive security solution that meets our high standard for seamless compatibility.”
