Access and Security System:
CCTV/ IP Cam: A closed circuit TV system is made up of a video camera monitoring device, a wire to carry the feed, and a monitor to view the feed or a storage system to save the feed. It can be a powerful deterrence in the workplace to monitor areas and employees.
An Internet protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which, unlike analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras, can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet. Although most cameras that do this are webcams, the term “IP camera” or “netcam” is usually applied only to those used for surveillance. The first centralized IP camera was Axis Neteye 200, released in 1996 by Axis Communications.
There are two kinds of IP cameras:
Centralized IP cameras, which require a central network video recorder (NVR) to handle the recording, video and alarm management.
Decentralized IP cameras, which do not require a central NVR, as the cameras have recording function built-in and can thus record directly to any standard storage media, such as SD cards, NAS (network-attached storage) or a PC/server.
Biometrics Solutions: The term biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyzes human physiological or behavioral characteristics for authentication or identification purposes. For such a factor to be suitable, it must meet the following criteria:
- Fingerprint recognition
- Iris recognition
- Face recognition
- Voice recognition
- Hand geometry recognition
- Retina recognition
A few examples where using biometrics might have advantages:
- Time attendance systems
- Access control to computer systems or portable media
- Physical access control
- Loyalty card or other customer systems
