Distributor Pro-Vision looks at the latest in IP products for CCTV and access control

The launch of new CCTV and access control products is still dominated with equipment that uses the IP protocol to distribute captured video and audio.

Recent IP products released in the UK include the IPC0522E2 video call door station from LiLin – a very popular brand with the custom install sector. This comes with an intercom feature that provides echo-free speech for visitors at the entrance.

The unit supports SIP (Session Initiation Protocol), a communications protocol for signalling and controlling multimedia communication sessions. The most common applications of SIP are in internet telephony for voice and video calls, as well as instant messaging over Internet Protocol networks for easy integration with various IP phone systems. The use of PoE (power over ethernet) allows for installation with a single network cable.

Combined with an integrated high definition camera HDR and Sense Up+ low light performance, the unit offers day and night identification of people at the door. Premises from single-family apartments to multi-family houses can be equipped with the LiLin IPC0522E as an effective control entry system.

The DirectIP brand from IDIS is another brand worth considering. DirectIP is an optimised HD surveillance solution based on an IP framework, consisting of IP cameras, NVRs, network equipment and client software as a complete package. This provides simple plug-and-play installation and an intuitive and user-friendly interface.

Videx, the door entry expert, has enhanced its vandal-resistant door panel range with a new selection of proximity, fingerprint and coded access readers. These enhancements mean door systems can include a sophisticated access control solution, which can be managed centrally by those responsible for building management in residential areas and commercial office blocks. Users have a choice of access control technologies – fingerprint, proximity (both Mifare and EM technologies) or coded. It also enables integration with other access control doors that do not require intercom but need to be managed as one with the intercom system.

The readers provide their own benefits to the door panel range. For example, proximity readers are available for Mifare and EM technology cards and fobs as well as a fingerprint reader and a back-lit coded access keypad. The proximity readers and fingerprint readers have tri-colour halo illumination to indicate a ready state (amber), access granted (green) and access denied (red). All readers have an industry standard Wiegand output so they can be connected to the Videx Portal Plus access control system or any third-party access control systems supporting the Wiegand protocol.

For users of the Microsoft Surface Hub, B-Tech has released a couple of options to assist the problems associated with the popular system. The single rail and twin rail mounting solutions provide support for wall-mounted 55” and 84” interactive displays respectively.

All the products featured above are available from Pro-Vision, which distributes more than 60 brands of quality, branded CCTV equipment, offering next-day delivery. They support over 60 brands and offer next-day delivery backed by technical support provided by the manufacturers.
