ProdataKey, Rhombus Systems Offer Integrated Access Control and Video Security Solution

ProdataKey (PDK), a manufacturer of cloud-based access control solutions, announces its integration with Rhombus Systems, a cloud-based video surveillance and asset tracking systems provider.

Through this partnership, the two companies are bringing to market a comprehensive access control and AI-assisted video management solution that is free to PDK dealers.

“We are extremely excited about PDK’s partnership with Rhombus. Sharing a video integration with another cloud-based solution allows our dealer partners to install more product in less time, while offering their customers a more robust, effective security solution that leverages the power of video analytics,” says Dallan Labrum, ProdataKey’s director of sales. “Because both platforms are communicating through the cloud, the integration delivers an exceptionally clean user experience along with a much easier integration set-up.”

According to the companies, the PDK/Rhombus integration allows users of a PDK io access control system to easily associate readers with Rhombus cameras, facilitating automated processes that simplify monitoring while enhancing security. Video clips for all entry events are captured and indexed, and can be filtered and searched for investigation.

Combining PDK credentials with Rhombus facial recognition algorithms is said to allow highly accurate AI-powered entry verification that matches faces to credentials. Real-time alerts for unauthorized access, tailgating, and persons-of-interest can be sent to administrators.

Rhombus license plate reader (LPR) technology can also be tied to garage and parking access points, providing entry for employees and documenting visitors.

Additional benefits include:

  • No onsite servers and no downloaded software
  • Integration between systems is accomplished in seconds through the software interface via phone, tablet, or web-enabled computer
  • Dealers can customize trigger events and automated responses that align with customers’ security needs
  • Integration is fully scalable and can support an unlimited number of PDK and Rhombus devices
  • Both systems offer end-to-end encryption
