How to Save NVR Disk Space
If you are running out of space on your Network Video Recorder or just want to get more storage capacity out of your existing drive(s) there are a number of ways to optimize the video footage being captured so that video file sizes are reduced. One way that is often overlooked is a technique called Masking. Included in many Video Management Software Products, the Masking feature allows you to crop out sections of the video image that are unimportant to the subject area (I.e. sky, ground, etc) allowing for the capture
of only the needed viewing area, and thereby reducing the amount of data captured and improving storage space.

"ACCESS" FROM ANYWHERE!
Access Control System manufacturers are
making it easier to manage your access control
system no matter where you are...
Managing your businesses access control system has become much more flexible and less costly due to the advent of integration with mobile devices. Mobile devices, the likes of Notebook Computers and Smartphones are changing how we interact with just about everything in our world on a daily basis. It's only natural that our access control systems would follow suit. Of the Access Control System Manufacturers represented by Time and Parking Controls, both LENEL and IDenticard have deployed mobile applications for use with Droid, IPhone, and Blackberry Mobile Operating Systems. These applications allow for quick and easy remote access to key system functionality from just about anywhere in the world. Now, Security Personnel can respond quickly to issues or requests no matter where they are, whether it is performing a guard tour from a remote location, or handling an alarm issue. Many of the functions available while working directly on the Security Server can be accessed from the mobile device application, such as locking or unlocking doors, granting or removing access privileges, setting up temporary access or schedules etc.
For the organizations without security staff, the application will also provide real-time notification and reports of when doors are in an alarm state or an attempt to access has occurred during empty building periods on weekends or holidays. These applications are helping organizations improve their security 24/7 while providing cost savings benefits with respect to greater efficiency in system and incident management.

- ACTS-Adult Life Care Communities
- Bimbo Bakeries
We've recently completed installation of an access control system at the ACTS affiliated Heron Point Community in Chestertown Md.
Also, security system upgrades and expansion work were completed at ACTS Indian River Estates in Vero Beach Fl. to accommodate new construction at the community. This work included upgrades in parking security as well as video surveillance systems.
Bimbo Bakeries USA selected Time and Parking Controls for Access Control Systems consulting and installation services at their Stroehmann Bakeries location in Williamsport, PA. Bimbo is the nation's largest baking company with a vision for being the world's best by 2015.
The primary goals for this project were to expand and update existing access controls systems with focus on improved security, monitoring and management of ingredient storage areas. A LENEL OnGuard access control system was selected for the project for its reliability, robust reporting engines, and versatile/open system architecture. The OnGuard system will manage all external access points and several key internal doors throughout the bakery, ensuring only authorized access to restricted and controlled areas. The OnGuard system along with a variety of locking and monitoring hardware devices will provide Bimbo with a solution that is built to protect the quality and safety of their food products.
