ProdataKey (PDK), manufacturer of a cloud access control platform built for mobile, announced its integration with DW’s Spectrum IPVMS video management platform.

 The pdk io/DW integration allows users of a DW Spectrum system to review all pdk io event data from within the IPVMS interface and enables more efficient and effective security monitoring through automated responses to access-related events, the company described. For example, activity at a door reader or a door propped open can activate the movement of a PTZ camera to provide corresponding coverage, initiate the pop-up of a video layout, send email notifications to designated users, generate an audio alarm at the monitoring workstation, and create a bookmark within the recorded video stream at the time of the event. A flexible rules engine makes it easy for installing dealers, integrators and system administrators to program these and other sequences. In addition, the integration allows DW Spectrum users to send commands back to the pdk io system to open or close doors, enable or disable certain features like “do not disturb,” and even trigger a lockdown. The result is a comprehensive security solution, accessible through a single interface, which delivers far more features and functionality than the two systems operating independently.

Cory Jackson, vice president of strategic sales at ProdataKey, said, “Our dealer network, which favors the pdk io cloud access control platform for its ease of installation, simple usability, powerful features and affordable pricing, will find the same advantages hold true for DW’s Spectrum’s video management solution. Bringing to market the two as an integrated offering is a guaranteed win/win for both our sales channel and their customers, who are looking for the most effective security technologies that also deliver a strong return on investment.”
