Partnering up with Brivo, the global leader in cloud-based access control and security platforms for commercial and private properties since 2001, locking and unlocking doors can now be made in just a few clicks from everywhere using the cloud-based alarm management platform evalink.
Langendorf, July 23rd, 2021. The efficiency of users' access control has yet just been increased: Combining the best of both worlds, alarm management and access control, the two cloud-based platforms, evalink, and Brivo, have decided to merge their powers: Brivo is now available in the evalink marketplace for all evalink talos users. Through its innovative and scalable access control platform, Brivo for evalink allows users to automate the security and management of facilities. With the ability to manage security and access control remotely, users can safeguard buildings from unauthorized access, preventing further damage from theft or heist.
Following this equation for success, Brivo and evalink officially announced their partnership by launching the Brivo integration for evalink in early June this year. According to Lukas Kaiser, Product Owner of evalink, adding a solution like Brivo to the evalink marketplace makes absolute sense, as access control is integral to physical security.
Joint forces for a more holistic approach to physical security
With Brivo, access control can be integrated into automated and semi-automated action plans. As evalink offers a wide range of integrations built for its alarm management platform, users can combine and connect them, making workflows more consistent, easier, and efficient.
Here are some examples of what can be done with workflows combining alarm management, video management, and access control:
- Opening doors or gates for deliveries
- Checking an intercom and opening a door if the person on the other end is allowed to enter
- Automatically disarming alarm systems when Brivo Smart Locks are unlocked by presenting valid access information
- Automatically issuing a mobile access pass/one-time digital key to a guard via the Brivo App or SMS to allow him to enter a customer facility temporarily (e.g., for an emergency or checking up on an alarm)
- Initiating a lockdown of an area or a whole building after a panic alarm was triggered
The benefits range from better visibility with advanced analysis and a more comprehensive view of a monitored environment to having a cloud-based access control platform that can be managed from any device. On top of that, users profit from advanced identity and access management (IAM) that entails video surveillance and event tracking. Brivo Access Control for evalink helps users improve their incident response and better protect their properties, people, and reputations.
