Here is a solution to a common installation challenge........

Many times, in an IP video installation, we are faced with creating a spot monitor or public display monitor for a specific camera and/or a group of cameras. Traditionally, depending on your VMS, we would need to purchase a client license & a PC to install the client on along with a Windows license.

The installation and configuration time and difficulty will vary but the time and labor associated does come with a cost to get the new PC loaded with the software and ready to view the camera(s).

IONODES has an ingenious product which simply connects to your network and outputs HDMI to a monitor. Once connected to the network, you simply log into the devices IP address and choose which IP camera streams you would like to display.

When moving into my office, installing access control on the doors was a must. We are in a shared space where we occupy nearly 2,000 square feet. There is a main entrance (front door) on the facility which all 32 of the tenants enter the building by presenting an HID card provided by the property management company. Once in the 500,000 square foot facility, you will find our offices behind a locked door with several other small businesses. This presented us with a series of challenges. 

Challenge 1. Install access control on a door where other tenants & building management use a brass key for entry without creating a disruption, change of routine or addition of costly electronics. 

Additionally, after gaining entry through this door, we have three offices which also had brass keys and locks. Each one of the locks are keyed differently. 

Challenge 2. Ditch the ring of keys in favor of a Electronic Access Control solution to create time schedules and audit trails.

Challenge 3. The property management company informed us of two other concerns before granting us permission.

  • The routing and installation of new cabling was going to be very restrictive and prohibited.
  • In an emergency situation or during a power outage, there must be a way to gain entry to our units.
