ZKAccess integrates access control platform with Arteco video surveillance solutions

January 17, 2017 - 

ZKAccess has integrated its biometric access control platform with Arteco video event management software.

The integration of access control and video surveillance continues to become more crucial to end users in a range of markets, which drove both companies to seek a partnership to enable their customers to consolidate data into a unified management platform.

“ZKAccess is a leading provider of biometric, RFID and access control solutions with significant reach across the globe. When seeking an integration partner in the video surveillance segment, we wanted to partner with an organization with the same global footprint because the demand for access control and video integration is not unique to the U.S. market,” said ZKAccess CEO Larry Reed. “Arteco is an ideal partner because of its event-based, open video technologies and its focus on ensuring customers have access to the most important information to make informed decisions at any given time.”

Arteco Video Event Management Software (VEMS) is now integrated with ZKBioSecurity management software platform through Arteco’s Open Connector, an integration platform that ensures greater interoperability between third-party systems and the Arteco VEMS platform.

The Arteco VEMS interface now displays access control events from ZKBioSecurity software in real time, providing joint customers with deeper insight into making more informed decisions and facilitate a faster response.

“At Arteco, our mission is to enable our customers to gain insight to the most important events across their infrastructure to increase safety and maximize business efficiencies,” said Steve Birkmeier, vice president of sales and business development at Arteco. “ZKAccess is a leader in the access control market for its ability to provide robust, cost-effective solutions that help reduce risk. Working together, our customers can realize the benefits of video and access integration to ensure a more informed, proactive security posture.”

In September, ZKAccess welcomed Associated Engineering Systems, Inc (AES) as an authorized partner.
