Five Steps to Physical Security ROI


"Our electricians learned how to install the access control hardware in just 15 minutes. Not having to hire subcontractors saves money."

- Matt Frederickson
Director of IT, Council Rock School District


Cisco physical security solutions provide broad network-centric capabilities in video surveillance, IP cameras, electronic access control, and incident response and notifications. Our solutions provide end-to-end support for safety and security detection, monitoring and management, and threat response.


Video Surveillance

Cisco Video Surveillance Manager and Cisco Video Surveillance IP cameras help you access real-time and archived video from any camera on the campus network.

Access Control

With Cisco Physical Access Control you manage a schedule for unlocking building doors and indicate who can enter. The application Integrates with Cisco Video Surveillance Manager to increase situational awareness by automatically tagging video when someone swipes an access card.

Incident Response

The Cisco IP Interoperability and Collaboration System (IPICS) solution helps you rapidly respond to incidents, emergencies, and facility events and collaborate with first responders.
