Have your IT Directory and physical security systems working in perfect harmony

Microsoft Active Directory integration facilitates the centralized management and synchronization of Windows user accounts with Security Center's administrator and cardholder accounts. Adding Windows users in Active Directory will automatically create Security Center users and/or cardholders. Synchronization is automated so the overall process is efficient and eliminates typical manual intervention and errors in the process. With Active Directory integration to Security Center, you save valuable time by configuring the link only once for your Synergis™ access control, Omnicast™ video surveillance, and AutoVu™ license plate recognition system.
