Open, integrated electronic access control management
Symphony Access Control (AC) is an open platform designed to manage hardware controllers used for access control, intrusion, and HVAC systems. With support for both legacy and IP-based systems, Symphony AC eliminates vendor lock-in, enabling site owners to manage hardware from multiple vendors in a single easy-to-use interface.
Available as a standalone application, Symphony AC provides a full set of access control functions, including enrollment, scheduling, monitoring, and reporting.
Access control events can be used in the Symphony VMS as triggers for rules, camera call-up, and alarm generation. Each alarm can be linked to a map location and multiple video feeds, enabling each event to be viewed from different camera perspectives or locations.
For security personnel monitoring the building, this means only one application is required to monitor and respond to events, with live and recorded video being accessible from the Symphony VMS Windows, web, and mobile clients.
