ISC West: Vicon Releases Valerus 22.1 for Improved Platform Centralization
With the latest updates to the integration framework, users can monitor LPR and access control from Valerus’ streamlined interface.
LAS VEGAS — Vicon Industries, a subsidiary of Cemtrex (Nasdaq: CETX), announces the early adopter release of its Valerus VMS. This release is said to help customers further centralize their security operation through Valerus’ license plate recognition (LPR) and access control integration frameworks, provide more storage and archiving flexibility, and improve the overall user experience.
With the latest updates to the integration framework, users can monitor LPR and access control from Valerus’ streamlined interface. They can see and respond to live events as they happen, view associated video, and trigger door overrides – such as lockdowns – without leaving the monitoring window. The integration also allows users to manage alarms from LPR, access control, and video centrally, thereby expediting responses, streamlining reporting, and simplifying day-to-day management.
“We’ve made tremendous progress towards true platform centralization since the beginning of the pandemic,” says Vicon’s Bret McGowan. “With the latest release of Valerus, users don’t need to cycle and swivel through multiple screens and interfaces to get the big picture of their operation. They can monitor, manage and respond right from Valerus.”
The latest user experience enhancements come directly from customer feedback, according to the company. The updates include streamlined user management, centralized monitor management and new user-friendly HTML camera reports.
The release also includes updates to make storage and archiving more flexible. Valerus can now map directly to network storage devices, whether a NAS device, someone else’s computer, another server, or even a data center.
This is said to give users more control of their data, allowing them to store long-term footage without the limitations of their local storage. This is ideal for facilities that want only short-term video storage on a local machine, but for security purposes, prefer to have Valerus store long-term footage on a secure network server.
