PACOM GMS is now ONVIF Compliant with IP Cameras
Our new ONVIF video integration with GMS ensures that even the most remote sites can now use video images for alarm and event verification in real-time. This plug-in provides a completely open video alternative for our customers when choosing the best video verification option for their facilities.
Why use ONVIF Compliant Products
The use of ONVIF compliant products can dramatically reduce the time spent on the design and installation process, since the devices and clients communicate using standard ONVIF interfaces instead of relying on unique software integrations between particular devices, such as cameras or door controllers, and clients such as video or access control management software.
ONVIF is an industry forum that provides and promotes standardized interfaces for effective interoperability of IP-based physical security products. The cornerstones of ONVIF are:
- Standardization of communication between IP-based physical security products
- Interoperability regardless of brand
- Openness to all companies and organisations
GMS customers can now enjoy integration with any ONVIF compliant IP cameras to instantly view live video streams in reaction to an event or by conveniently clicking on a camera on a site map. GMS users can also control PTZ ONVIF cameras using the onscreen controls or simply choose a pre-defined preset position to quickly view different images. Snapshots of the video stream can also be saved to your local computer.
