Rhombus Introduces Cloud Access Control: Integrated Security Cameras, Alarms, More

A “single-pane-of-glass experience,” Rhombus Access Control creates a central nervous system for managing building security.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.Rhombus has announced its new product line, Rhombus Access Control. The company now offers a single-pane-of-glass experience, enabling organizations to manage video security, access control, sensors, alarms and integrations from a unified web-based console or mobile app.

The Rhombus Access Control product suite includes:

  • DC20 4-Door Access Control Unit: cloud-managed access control unit that enables simple installation, remote management and infinite scalability.
  • DR20 Door Reader: modern door reader providing multiple, touchless ways to gain access via physical card, mobile app, remote unlock and wave to open.
  • DR40 Video Intercom Reader: all-in-one video and access control reader with intercom functionality and real-time video of all access events.

“Physical security for many organizations is often disjointed and siloed. This can impact awareness and emergency response when issues occur,” says Rickey Cox, Rhombus director of product. “By bringing access control to Rhombus, organizations unify their physical security to one platform and unlock an experience where Rhombus cameras, sensors and alarms provide enhanced situational awareness without any additional effort or workload. It creates a central nervous system for managing building security, which is our primary goal here at Rhombus.”

With Rhombus Access Control, reports the company, organizations can remotely manage building access and credentials from anywhere and also pair access-based events with data from other systems, such as video surveillance, environmental sensors and alarm monitoring.

When a door unlocks, access events are automatically indexed and paired with the corresponding security footage – allowing users to quickly investigate or set up custom notifications when issues arise in real time. For example: If a person’s face doesn’t match their badge, users can receive an instant alert with video footage of the incident, enabling swift incident resolution before a potential security issue worsens.

“Rhombus offers an incredibly powerful platform that impacts thousands of organizations around the world,” says Garrett Larsson, CEO and co-founder of Rhombus. “With the introduction of access control, Rhombus delivers a true single-pane-of-glass experience for all physical security needs, plus offers the flexibility to integrate with other innovative technology solutions to solve key business challenges for all types of companies.”

Rhombus Access Control is now available for preorder; it will ship early Q3 2023, the company reports.
