Designing an intelligent video security platform that integrates with best-of-breed solutions has always been a fundamental feature of Rhombus. When a solution integrates with other systems, this provides organizations with maximum flexibility so that they can customize their security experience in a way that best aligns with how they operate. At Rhombus, our mission is to make the world a safer place, and today, we’re excited to announce our newest physical security integration with a leader in access control, ProdataKey.
ProdataKey provides modern access control solutions for organizations around the world. Their solution uses your phone as a beacon to sense when you’re near a door, and with a simple wave or tap, the system automatically unlocks the door for you.
Let’s dive in and explore how these two systems enhance each other and how impactful the integration can be to your organization.
Like all Rhombus integrations, setting things up takes only a few clicks! If you use ProdataKey today, it’s incredibly straightforward and easy to get it working with Rhombus security cameras.
Simply log into your Rhombus account and go to Settings -> Third-Party Integrations -> Pdk.
Once you're there, all you need to do is enter your ProdataKey OUID, enable the integration, adjust the settings, click save—and voila, you're ready to go!
With the ProdataKey integration, Rhombus is automatically configured to capture the following events:
By combining Rhombus security cameras with ProdataKey, you can improve your access control experience by eliminating abuse from outside parties and verify who is entering your space at any given time.
In the Rhombus Console, motion, people, and vehicle events are automatically indexed in the video feed. This feature saves users hours of investigative work daily and allows them to pinpoint and find specific events without having to manually rewind or fast forward through footage. This event indexing is carried over to the ProdataKey integration—all access events and activities are automatically indexed to allow you to filter, search, or skip to a particular event, making verifications and investigations easy.
This integration also uses credential information from ProdataKey and connects it to specific names and faces, so you no longer have to manually review video footage to identify if the correct face is using the correct credential.
With Rhombus, the system will now automatically learn people’s faces based on their credentials and verify that the correct person is entering your facilities.
We’re truly excited about this integration with ProdataKey and can’t wait for you to try it out for yourself. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about Rhombus, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For many schools, video security and access control are two important pieces of their overall physical security solution. Separately, both types of solutions improve safety and accountability for students and staff—but the real magic happens when they work together. By unifying video security and access control, school administrators can improve safety with automated entry verification and real-time monitoring of building access.
Many schools are searching for ways to battle underage vaping and protect the well-being of their students. The Rhombus + HALO integration is a powerful tool that combines video security with intelligent environmental sensors to provide automated vape detection with corresponding video footage.
