security management“Ocularis 5 offers an efficient, secure, and powerful VMS platform for integrated security systems,” says Mulli Diamant, Vice President of International Business Development, OnSSI. “The integration of Ocularis 5.2 and C•CURE 9000 v2.40 and v2.50 enables higher levels of functionality which increases users’ overall situational awareness.”

The integration of Ocularis 5 with C•CURE 9000 provides a security management system that allows users to instantly launch video associated with access control events, investigate and verify activity at access points, and receive notification of events from the video system. Other benefits include the cost-saving advantages of managing one integrated system versus several independent systems; the ability to monitor groups of up to 16 cameras connected to different recording servers at multiple sites; compatibility with Windows 2012/R2, and the ability to manually or automatically display up to four live video windows associated with events. The integration runs as a Windows service, providing users with a familiar, easy-to-use interface.

“Working with OnSSI continues to be a positive experience,” said Scott McNulty, Sr. Product Manager, Connected Partner Program, Tyco Security Products. “The reliability and ease of integration between our C•CURE 9000 system and Ocularis 5 makes it easier to implement feature-rich, integrated network solutions.”

C•CURE 9000 is a powerful and flexible security management system. A single server and database provide seamless integration of best-of-breed video, access control, intrusion, fire, real-time location, and other supported security products for situational awareness.

Ocularis 5 is an intelligent, scalable VMS platform that simplifies workloads and system management. It provides high levels of network and video security with features including a scrambled recorded video database to protect the integrity of recorded video and the ability to record directly to a NAS anywhere on the network. There is no need to register camera licenses and MAC addresses with Ocularis, and it features automatic load balancing for managing recordings across system servers. Smart Camera Driver technology also provides out-of-the-box support for newly introduced cameras from many top camera manufacturers without requiring users to wait for manufacturers to write and release specific drivers, allowing customers to immediately take advantage of the newest, most advanced camera features. Unique to Ocularis, Critical Camera Failover ensures continuous sight by switching to a failover camera in as little as two seconds. Ocularis 5 also allows for multiple different recorders to be combined under the same Base (including legacy Ocularis 4.X recorders) with centralized user and event management.
