HikCentral Professional 2.0 now supports a broader range of security and business applications in one platform, all managed with a new dynamic and intuitive user interface.
March 31, 2021 – Hikvision launched newly updated HikCentral Professional 2.0 security software (“HCP 2.0”), which blends feeds from multiple systems into a single platform. HikCentral Pro 2.0 can be configured to link video security devices, alarm and access control systems, and third-party systems through its OpenAPI. The system updates allow for centralized management of various security and business applications.
Frank Zhang, President of Hikvision’s International Product and Solution Center, said, “This is an important release for us, and a significant leap forward in our security management software offerings. HikCentral Professional 2.0 will help our customers manage a variety of activities seamlessly on one platform. We’re excited to see the value it delivers.”
HikCentral Professional 2.0 integrates multiple business and security systems with nine key applications, making it valuable to a wide variety of common security and business scenarios seen in buildings, factories, stores, and apartments.
Furthermore, access control can be included to assign a variety of access permissions using facial recognition, ID cards, fingerprints, QR codes, and more. HCP 2.0 allows various personnel such as HR managers to set flexible attendance rules, including schedules for shift work, while delivering full reporting export. Additionally, site managers can employ vehicle and visitor management applications to streamline entrance security and on-site parking.
HikCentral Professional 2.0 supports intelligent analysis and reporting – an application that collects data and displays it in easy-to-understand reports and dashboards. Report types include flow status, people density and more. For systems management teams, HCP 2.0’s system maintenance application visualizes alarm and device notifications, plus full network and device topology for rapid, targeted action in unusual events.
HCP 2.0 lets users deploy digital signage systems to display advertisements and announcements. The software comes with eight pre-installed content templates. This can be crowd numbers and temperature status in a supermarket scenario, for example.
With HCP 2.0, users will flexibly unite applications and build a tailored system to match their security and business needs. The unified approach not only creates greater situational awareness of their security environment, it also reduces real day-to-day management resources previously required by disparate systems.
For example, users can integrate visitor management with vehicle management to enhance daily operational efficiency for building facilities. Facility managers can register visitor information into the HCP 2.0 system, and – by linking to an ANPR system – can set visitors to be automatically permitted into on-site parking. Similarly, the system can also pre-authorize visitor access to specific areas of an organization’s premises.
HikCentral Professional 2.0 can be tailored to deliver specific information to assigned users. The system comes with three pre-configured roles:
In this way, human resources staff can customize their feed to show employee attendance status, for example, while management staff can monitor security of the facilities. A custom role allows further customization for specific needs.
HikCentral Professional 2.0 features an improved user interface. Users can customize the control panel to suit their viewing preferences by dragging and dropping key video and device feeds into the dashboard, adjusting where they sit and how they look.
Users can apply 3D E-maps that vividly demonstrate device monitoring statuses in different locations. instant alerts can be interactively managed by clicking and watching associated live video feeds and other integrated system information.
HikCentral Professional 2.0 is easy to deploy and quick to set up. Customers with minimum system requirements of Intel i3-CPU and 8 GB RAM can get up and running with a one-click installation procedure. Operations guidance wizards are conspicuously displayed to support users in configuring key applications. Visualized health monitoring dashboards enable more focused and efficient IT maintenance.
