i-PRO introduces Mercury-based intrusion detection with MonitorCast at ISC West

TOKYO –At ISC-West this year i-PRO is poised to introduce the latest release of the MonitorCast Access Control software, which adds the Mercury-based intrusion detection solution.

It’s inclusion means that users will have a unified solution without requiring third party hardware or integrations i-PRO said. The addition of an intrusion detection system (IDS) to access control lets users control physical access to building or locations while monitoring them. The IDS monitors entry points like windows and doors and in so doing mimics a burglary system providing more alerts during forced entries and similar events.

“Intrusion detection is supported by other systems, but they typically rely on third-party hardware and integration to support the feature,” says Jason Garcia, Product Manager at i-PRO Americas Inc. “MonitorCast uses the functionality within the Mercury SDK to utilize the existing supported hardware. Since third-party party hardware or software is not required, it simplifies design and implementation for both integrator and the end-user.” 

Other features in MonitorCast includes active directory synchronization, custom server-based rules, video insight Integration, and free badge printing software. “Overall, the latest release (v4.8) of MonitorCast access control software provides users with a comprehensive solution for both access control and intrusion detection, all within a single, easy-to-use platform,” says Garcia.

More information available at i-PRO will be available during ISC-West at booth # 10037.
