Pelco and TAC integrate solutions

Pelco is pleased to announce the successful integration of its state-of-the-art Endura IP Video Management System with TAC Continuum Security / Access Control and Building Automation System.

This new integrated security solution allows users to manage building alarm events quickly and efficiently. The new "XDriver," provided by TAC, allows the Continuum Security / Building Automation system to issue preset commands to Pelco’s Endura IP based Video Management System. Upon receiving the alarm preset command from Continuum, the Endura system then automatically selects the appropriate camera closest to the alarm occurrence and automatically positions the camera (pan, tilt, and zoom). Continuum then logs the alarm event and through this integration, allows critical crystal clear video to be displayed on any Endura workstation or video console display monitor, thus allowing immediate action and response by a security system operator.

"In order to provide the safest environment possible, you must be able to respond to potential and real threats as quickly as possible. Linking access control with video security systems improves response time and safety. The new XDriver is just the first step to linking Pelco Endura with TAC Continuum and raising the bar for secure facilities," says Jon Williamson, TAC Senior Product Manager.

Built on decades of Pelco experience and leadership in the video security industry, Endura delivers superior image quality and robust performance demanded by security professionals. With the ability to scale from a few to a few hundred, to thousands of cameras, an Endura system can be designed to fit a wide range of customer situations. The Endura IP Video System offers the reliability, scalability, flexibility, and performance that customers demand in an enterprise-class IP-based video security system.

Andover Continuum is built from the ground up as both a climate control system and a security system. This unique approach reduces the overall system cost while providing a solution for the growing requirement for tight integration using coordinated control strategies. This is further complemented by the TAC and Pelco commitment to open standards, allowing their systems to interoperate with any third-party system for total building and system integration.
