See how this cloud-based service enables FMs to manage access control across dispersed locations from a single interface

by Brianna Crandall — April 10, 2019 — Arcules, an Irvine, California-based innovator in integrated video cloud services, just announced the addition of access control-as-a-service (ACaaS) to its suite of cloud-based offerings. Arcules now enables customers to centrally manage access control effectively across geographically dispersed business locations in a single, intuitive user interface.

The Arcules service bundle provides video analytics, advanced video management of video surveillance data, and access control information in one unified solution. End users can correlate video surveillance data with access control events, associate cameras with doors, view the live status of doors, and authorize access to grant or restrict permissions, all through the Arcules portal.

Arcules also integrates alarms across the video and access services. The bundle eliminates the need to configure multiple pieces of software to manage video management systems (VMS) and access control users and cardholders.

The Arcules ACaaS is also available as a standalone cloud service, providing the same easy-to-use interface, user management and access functionality, without video data or video analytics.

The Arcules ACaaS will support access control through integration with Axis Communications’ AXIS A1601 Network Door Controllers. Additionally, using the Arcules service will allow customers leveraging Axis surveillance camera technology to automatically update firmware directly through the use of the Arcules platform, further enhancing the ability for an organization’s security infrastructure to remain up-to-date.

Alex Walthers, business development manager, Application Development Partner Program, Axis Communications, stated:

At Axis Communications, we view access control as a core component of a comprehensive approach to safety, and the cloud as a main driver in the next evolution of the security market. We are pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with Arcules to ensure close integration of our solutions and services to deliver a refined user experience that simplifies manageability, deployment and administration.

Andreas Pettersson, CEO, Arcules, remarked:

Since our inception, Arcules has worked to redefine expectations for video cloud services by helping businesses realize the untapped potential of the data available. With the introduction of access control and our collaboration with Axis Communications, we add another rich layer to our service enabling organizations to build intelligent infrastructure that drives informed decision-making.

Arcules is highlighting the capabilities of its cloud-based access control and video services during the ISC West Conference and Expo at Booth #31079 this week, April 10-12, at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

Arcules, a Canon Group company, addresses the need of modern enterprises for an integrated cloud-based video surveillance and Internet of Things (IoT) service. Using the latest developments in cloud, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, Arcules combines previously untapped video monitoring data with sensor data and analytics to deliver actionable insights that can ultimately drive better business decisions, optimize operations and improve safety.
