SeeTec Cayuga R6: Simplified Update, Integration Access Control

We already improved a lot of features in SeeTec Cayuga R5 to ease the handling and administration of SeeTec systems and make them more comfortable. The improved SeeTec Cayuga Auto Updater enables a SeeTec Cayuga system to install patches, updates and upgrades automatically, if it is connected to the internet. This way the installation always stays up to date. By using the SeeTec Auto Updater functionality the manual deployment of patches can be avoided and thereby a smooth operation is supported, as possible sources of error are eliminated. SeeTec Cayuga R6 is the first SeeTec software release, which is automatically delivered to customers using the Auto Updater.
In addition, SeeTec Cayuga R6 offers an open interface to integrate third party access control solutions. Using the SeeTec Access Control Interface you have a flexible and release-independent connection of access control systems from different manufacturers with the SeeTec video management system. Based on a flexible system architecture third party providers of access control solutions communicate with the SeeTec Software by using driver-like plug-ins. This way access control events are linked to video data, documented and visualized in real time - this simplifies security staff's work and saves time. Developing plug-ins is not bounded to the SeeTec Software release cycle. By using the detailed interface documentation even third parties (e.g. access control manufacturers) may develop plug-ins, which are finally tested and certified by SeeTec.

A first integration of Paxton systems and Continental Instruments is available with R6. Paxton, market leader for access control solutions, opens new market and solution possibitilites to the customer.
