Access Control & Attendance Management System

Product Profile

Hikvision has announced the launch of its HikCentral Access Control software, which is designed for professional access control and time attendance management in an easier and more efficient way. This simplifies security and operations for small and medium businesses, who can integrate the system with their Hikvision access control and intercom products quickly and easily.

With HikCentral Access Control, business customers can experience a wide range of benefits:

  • Maximized security with advanced access control features and real-time alarms
    The HikCentral Access Control software supports a wide range of employee ID credentials, including fingerprints, cards, facial recognition, QR codes and PIN codes, to ensure flexibility and security for employee access authentication. What’s more, it also includes advanced access security features such as multi-door interlocking, anti-passback, and multi-factor authentication, providing high levels of protection for sensitive areas. Alarms are also triggered in real time when rules are breached, accelerating responses, and minimizing potential losses, damage, and other negative impacts.
  • Minimized deployment complexity and costs for Access Control and Time Attendance Management
    The new software requires limited hardware processing power. Customers with minimum hardware requirements of i3-CPU and 4 GB RAM can get the software up and running in minutes.
  • Simplified setup process and management at ease
    With HikCentral software, customers can set rules for access permissions and work shifts quickly and easily. Instructions for doing this are available on the sidebar menu in the portal interface, reducing skills requirements and speeding up the process. When in use, operators can manage the software remotely with a mobile app at any time, from anywhere.
  • Optimized HR reporting for data-driven decision making
    The HikCentral software provides detailed attendance reports to support better HR management. These can be exported easily into Excel, CSV or PDF formats, or integrated with third-party payroll systems to streamline HR administration.
  • Intuitive user interface
    The software offers a dynamic view of multiple sites of a building and access control device status based on an interactive E-Map. This allows effective responses to event alarms and device anomalies in a timely manner.

The new HikCentral Access Control software is provided free of charge to Hikvision customers with up to 4 access doors, and up to 50 employees for clocking in and out. It can also be scaled quickly and flexibly for larger sites and workforces. Where necessary, it can also be upgraded to HikCentral Professional, which provides integrated management of video security, access control, and alarm systems, for end-to-end protection of people and assets.
