- Collect your OUID – this can be found by looking at the URL in your browser. It should look something like: https://pdk.io/systems/XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Note: A customer OUID must be used for authentication. Dealer accounts will not work for OUID authentication.
Once complete, log-in to the Rhombus Console and click on the settings icon in the upper right-hand corner.
You'll see the ProdataKey integration under Badge Systems.
Once you're there -- enter your ProdataKey OUID to pull in your ProdataKey information.
Then enable the integration, adjust your settings, and click save to link the two systems together – and voila, you're ready to go!
You can then associate any camera with a badge reader and select which events you want to automatically record.
Capturing Events and Reviewing Footage from Badge Entries
With the ProdataKey integration, Rhombus is automatically configured to capture the following events:
- When someone enters with a badge
- When a face does not match the badge used
By combining Rhombus security cameras with ProdataKey’s technology, organizations can improve their access control experience, eliminate abuse from outside parties, and verify who is entering their space at a given time.
In the Rhombus Console - motion, people, and vehicle events are automatically created and indexed in the video feed. This feature saves customers hours of investigative work every day and allows them to pinpoint and find specific events without having to manually rewind or fast forward through footage.
This event indexing is also carried over with the ProdataKey integration. All ProdataKey events and activities are automatically indexed so that you can filter or skip to a particular event, allowing you quickly investigate and secure entry points.
Facial Recognition that Automatically Learns
This integration also combines the badge information from ProdataKey and connects it to names and faces. This ensures that you no longer have to manually review video footage and identify if the correct face is using the correct badge.
Now with Rhombus, the system will automatically learn people’s faces based on their badge and verify that the correct person is entering your building.
We’re excited about this integration with ProdataKey, and we can’t wait for you to try it out for yourself. If you have any additional questions or would like to learn more about Rhombus, feel free to reach out to email@example.com.
