The primary goal of an IP video door station is to enable end users to know who accessed a facility and when. This was not possible with traditional, analog-based systems but with the advent of new technologies, users are realizing the benefits of true, built-in integration. It provides immense efficiency and a huge reduction in costs. Both residential and SMB markets are primed for an IP-based solution that integrates access control and video surveillance. Today’s innovative manufacturers are delivering the solutions necessary for customers to realize the benefits of integrated IP systems in a user-friendly and budget conscious format.
