Due to the integration of security and access control systems, alarm events initiates display of alarm images from the cameras installed in the detection area.
Within a project framework, installation of security systems included installation of Cisco IP-cameras, which generate high quality images under different light conditions and support Power-over-Ethernet. In addition, Cisco cameras feature built-in microphones and can transmit audio streams through IP-channel. For alarm notification about motion in the monitoring areas, these cameras are equipped with a special hardware motion detector. Integrated security system carries out recording and data storage using Cisco media server HDDs.
To ensure the required level of security, ARMO-LINE specialists organized a special gateway room on the territory of the data center. This room is designed for main control and authorization of working staff and visitors of the data centers. It allows users to provide person identification and restrict access to the data center in case of intrusion. Gateway pass consists of two interconnected doors, working in a one way mode. During the installation of security systems ARMO-LINE specialists installed in the gateway two Cisco controllers with special pre-installed operation modes.
Additional protection against unauthorized access to the data center is provided by RFID-readers of HID Company, whereas specially protected areas are equipped with biometric readers of ZK Software. As part of “Selectel” security system are also used Gianni electromagnetic locks and Smartec magnetic door contacts. To ensure stable operation during electricity malfunction ARMO-LINE carried out not only installation of security systems, but also installed uninterruptible power supplies of APC and Altronix companies.
