Digital video surveillance
C4 supports our own TruVision as well as 3rd party digital video recorders and network video recorders including IP camera's. Additional to the quality, ease of use and reliability of these video products, their integration into C4 allow system operators to have direct access to live and recorded video, providing instant visual verification of events and alarms. This ensures the best and most adequate response when critical events take place.
As a result, operators can focus on one interface to monitor their facilities rather than operating multiple separate systems. This makes your security setup more efficient, responsive and reliable, saving valuable time and money.
C4 supports Advisor Master, Advisor Advanced, Verex and Guardall control panels as well as many 3rd party devices. It provides alarm management combined with video to quickly and efficiently resolve any alarm. It also allows easy configuration of persons requiring access to restricted areas.
In case of intrusion alarms the floor plan pinpoints the location and a relevant live video stream can start automatically while lights and doors can be controlled by pressing one button. The presence of intruders is easily verified by switching to recorded video streams and the log file will keep track of the route followed as any detector causing further alarms will add details into the historical log.
Access control supporting multiple sites
Access Control combined with Advisor Advanced or Advisor Master, is providing a complete access control solution in multi-site environments. C4 arranges the configuration of users, credential, schedules and all other related settings in the background. Operators don't require any knowledge of the devices to ensure proper configuration. C4 management software also supports other 3rd party access control devices.
C4 provides assurance that people requiring access are setup properly in the locations they are allowed to access. All this is possible without having to add the user for each site or each credential separately.
Although C4 is not an approved fire monitoring system, the addition of Fire allows end-users to gain faster access to events taking place by combining technologies like Fire with Video to quickly asses threats. C4 supports full integration of the FP1200/FP2000, 2X, ZP2 and KFP fire alarm panels for event monitoring as well as control over the fire alarm system installation. In addition it supports many 3rd party devices.
It provides the operator with an intuitive graphical user interface featuring graphical plans with events dynamically displayed on screen to assist in the rapid location of a fire. This allows for improved response time to fire events and other hazards thus reducing risks to life, property or the environment.
In case of a fire alarm, the location of the alarm will instantly appear on the screen. Activation of a live video stream allows verification of the presence of a fire and if needed, other video streams can be selected directly from the floor plan. When a raging fire has been confirmed, doors can be unlocked, sounders can be activated, elevators can be brought to the ground level, all while verifying the chain of events with the video system connected.
The security manager is in control and able to handle every event. Whenever an alarm is generated, it can immediately be supported by video, that can be retrieved easily at any time. One database for all functions linked to events, where access rights can be altered, is eliminating all chances for error.
