Separate companies reflecting the security video and access control arenas are working together more. It’s a good sign for security leaders seeking fewer sources to deal with and fewer integration headaches.

A case in point: 3VR Security, Inc., the searchable surveillance platform, will talk about its integration with Schlage’s bright blue intelligent access management software at ISC. The solution allows users of bright blue’s Web-based access control system to search and manage video in a new, simple video interface using 3VR’s searchable surveillance technology.

“This integration is the perfect example of how small- and medium-sized businesses can maintain a sophisticated security environment without the intense work generally associated with gathering information from separate systems, said Mitchell Kane, director of software & controllers at Schlage. “bright blue gives users the freedom to access their system from anywhere, at any time, and with 3VR they are now able to view, search and analyze associated video, making it an even more powerful access control/CCTV solution.”

Launched in February 2009, bright blue is the first embedded network appliance to give small business owners the ability to access and manage points of entry from the Web. Supporting up to 32 doors and 5,000 cardholders, the system offers an intuitive user interface, simple implementation and compatibility with Schlage Card Readers, VIP & Wireless locks and most common third-party card readers.

3VR combines video analysis, search and intelligent video management in an integrated surveillance solution that prevents fraud and enables efficient investigations. Using the plug-and-play approach, 3VR and bright blue make it possible for business owners and security personnel to quickly and easily find video clips by searching the transactions of persons passing through access control checkpoints. With each card swipe, data is sent directly into the 3VR system, where it is indexed and linked to the associated video. Ideally tailored to small–to medium-sized businesses, the integration features a simple and usable interface, is quick to install and integrates hassle-free with a variety of hardware options, vastly reducing implementation costs.
