TDSi have announced the release of its latest update to the GARDiS access software – Version 2.5. The latest enhanced features include integration with Suprema’s BioStar Security Platform and Pelco’s VideoXpert Video Management Solution, along with a new integration module with Hikvision’s Hikcentral video solutions.
In addition, the update also includes enhanced anti-passback and mantrap/airlock functionalities, and additions to the administration system to enable bulk uploads of identity details.
Tina Baker, Development Manager at TDSi commented, “We are very excited to be launching these new additional features to GARDiS. Integration with other security systems will be particularly important in 2023, as security providers and operators look to maximise their investments and have a centralised overview of operations.
“We have also been working closely with our partners and customers to add additional functionality and convenience to the GARDiS system that makes it even easier to use.”
GARDiS 2.5 features integration with Suprema’s biometric units, enabling the GARDiS front end to capture biometric templates, be they fingerprint templates or facial templates, and to distribute those out to the specific readers.
TDSi’s GARDiS integration with the Pelco video management suite allows live view from cameras from within the Pelco system and to send bookmarks to the Pelco system from GARDiS.
Hikvision Hikcentral Integration
GARDiS 2.5 also includes support for integration with Hikvision’s HikCentral video solution, via an optional separate module, allowing users to view events, alarms and data from GARDiS in Hikvision systems, both seamlessly and in real-time.
Version 2.5 includes anti-passback functionality to address minor idiosyncrasies and to make it more intuitive and easier to use. It also includes mantrap/airlock compatibility, and tweaks to aid the administration of the system, such as enabling bulk uploads of identities.
Tina added, “The latest enhancements have all been designed to add considerable extra value, with practical and useful additions that meet the needs of end users and our installation partners. GARDiS is continually evolving, and we look forward to unveiling further exciting developments in due course.”
The GARDiS 2.5 Software update can now be downloaded from the TDSi Product Registration Site.
