Pacom Systems, a provider of integrated alarm, access control and video solutions that seamlessly integrate with a variety of installed and expanded security systems, has announced a partnership with Dedicated Micros that will make it easier for operators to qualify alarms by seeking video verification when responding to alarm conditions.
Under this new partnership, Pacom's latest release of its Graphical Management System (GMS) will interface with many of Dedicated Micros' range of digital video recorders including the Eco4, BX2, D4, Digital Sprite (DS) and DV-IP. The GMS-Dedicated Micros integration will enable users to deliver enhanced levels of security by centralizing video management, access control and alarm monitoring through a single user interface.
The integration facilitates automatic video retrieval when an operator actions an alarm or access control event. This enables simple and cost-effective video verification and can significantly reduce the incidence of false alarms. From a graphical site map, operators can also conveniently click on a camera icon and live video will be streamed directly to the GMS application.
The Pacom integration also takes advantage of the Digital Sprite's powerful telemetry capabilities. Pacom's intelligent control panels can communicate directly with the DS DVR and activate presets in response to any alarm or access control event. The local monitor output can also be switched based on any event.
"There are many advantages for organizations to use a single operator interface to manage all their security requirements," said Andrew Minnikin, president of Pacom Systems North America. "Pacom's powerful networking and strength with multi-site applications fit nicely with DM's range of digital recorders".
