Senstar’s Symphony Access Control (AC) software resolves frustrations common to access control systems – proprietary hardware, separate interfaces for access control and video, and the inherent support issues encountered by dealing with multi-vendor integrations.

Open Platform, No Vendor Lock-in

  • Use multiple hardware suppliers with one system (includes support for legacy system expansion)
  • Can use the existing hardware from any HID-based system
  • Support for access control hardware, intrusion alarm controllers, HVAC/fire, elevator control, biometric devices from major vendors

Unified Access Control and Video

  • Install Symphony AC and VMS on the same computer
  • Use access control events to trigger alarms, notify users, and display live video from specific cameras
  • Search for alarms and review historical video associated with an access control event
  • Link alarms to multiple cameras, a graphical map, and on-screen instructions

Better Support with Greater Accountability

  • Easy purchase and licensing
  • One place for training and certification
  • One source for support and service agreements

Symphony AC is an example of Senstar’s continued commitment to developing products to meet the evolving security needs of our customers.
