The integration is now active! You can now modify settings, associate any camera with a badge reader, and select which events you want to automatically record.
Using the Genea + Rhombus Integration
Capturing Events and Reviewing Footage from Badge Entries
With the Genea 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 Genea’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 users 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.
Rhombus event indexing synchronizes with the Genea’s access control functionalities. All Genea 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
Combining Rhombus’ facial recognition technology with Genea’s access control features makes both solutions even more effective. With this integration, the system automatically learns people’s faces based on their badge and verifies that the correct person is entering your building.
This ensures that you no longer have to manually review video footage to identify if the correct face is using the correct badge.
We’re excited about this integration with Genea, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
