Axis launched its first network camera in 1996, and entered the network door access market in 2013. ITS is an Axis Communications partner.
Network door controllers allow you to provide access to staff and guests in varying groups with varying permissions, grant/deny building access remotely, and control badges, groups, and permissions remotely from almost any device with an internet connection. ITS has deployed network door controllers in businesses, schools, multi-tenant housing and multi-tenant commercial spaces.
Network Video Door Stations
Network Video Door Stations are IP-based devices designed for two-way communication, high-definition video and remote entry control. It is an ideal complement to any surveillance installation and offers new levels of security for effective identification and entry control. These door stations include a network camera component that allows your guest to request access, which triggers an alert to staff using the door controller software. Staff can interact with guests through the intercom or can unlock the door remotely through the software or an IP desk phone.
Our Axis Network Video Door Stations are designed for indoor/outdoor use and are weather-proof and tamper resistant.
IP Technology Growth
With the adoption of IP technology, and as more and more devices are based on a common, standardized communications protocol, it becomes possible to integrate different systems with each other, which is of great benefit to the customer and end user. Furthermore, standards ensure that products are future-proof and help to push development and manufacturing costs. This is especially true about the security industry, where IP systems are becoming widespread also in areas besides video surveillance, e.g. sensor technologies and access control. Consequently, the now fast growing market and supply of various digital intercom products, such as video door stations, comes as no surprise.
IP-based video door stations are a natural complement that will bring useful and much wanted functionality into video surveillance, by letting operators both see and communicate with visitors at the door or at the gate. Open international standards ensure that products are compatible and that it is simple and straightforward to add devices to an existing system or assembling them into a new one. No matter if they are large or small – surveillance systems are getting smarter, more flexible and more efficient. And customers are getting safer.
