Tecton VMS is a software suite that knits together the elements of a security system, so that any user can react to events presented by a single integrated system.
VMS provides the graphical user interface (GUI) for systems that use Tecton Liberator and/or Servalan recorders, and provides the means to interface many different third party security systems including alarms, access control, asset tags and more.
A highly intuitive drag & drop screen layout allows operators to be highly effective in a very short period of time. The standard three screen setup provides control/review, spot/incident and mapping/alarm views.
The Tecton VMS software came about largely because we get to see a lot of systems, and realised how clunky many of them were.
Security personnel need to be able to maintain a focus on their primary function, i.e. making sure people/buildings/assets are secure and free from all manner of threats. If this role is made harder by having to switch between disparate systems, or awkward to use software integrations, it stands to reason that security staff will be less efficient.
This is why we like to make all of our products, be they hardware or software, as easy to use as humanly possible. This often means we incorporate suggestions from our customers, after all, they know their jobs!
In use, each of the VMS terminals will "talk" to each other, constantly updating each other about what's happening.
From each work station an operator can send video anywhere on the network. That means anywhere the network extends, be it 3 feet or 3000 miles away.
Alongside all the usual video viewing and control functions, the VMS also receives data from third party systems. So, for example, an access control system might send a message to say that a door had been wedged open. This message is presented to the user in both text on screen, and a flashing location icon, and even triggering automatic display of any associated video. This can be achieved with many different types of sensor input.
The British Library houses over 150 Million items, from daily newspapers to literally priceless historical relics. Clearly, security is important to this national institution. Find out how Tecton helped the transition to HD video surveillance and recording.
Tecton has a long established record of supplying the UK rail networks, so it's perhaps no surprise that the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is one of the many rail projects that is protected by Tecton designed and manufactured equipment.
