ProdataKey (PDK), a leading cloud-based, mobile-first access control platform, and Hanwha Vision, an industry-trusted camera manufacturer and customizable IP video management system, have partnered to provide a seamlessly integrated access control and video monitoring experience. Fully leveraging the power of the cloud, the platforms work together to offer a tailored solution for every application, all managed effortlessly on any device.
PDK & Hanwha Vision Partnership
The integration between ProdataKey and Hanwha’s video management system, Wisenet WAVE, delivers a completely scalable video and access control system with robust features, all available under a unified platform. By combining the advanced technologies of both platforms, users are empowered by heightened security and efficient management of their systems.
The partnership seamlessly integrates ProdataKey’s robust access control systems with Hanwha Wisenet WAVE’s advanced video surveillance technology. Users have the power to monitor and manage both PDK-secured access points and video feeds right from the WAVE interface on any device for centralized, flexible, and convenient administration.
Mark Heintzman, Technical Partnership Manager, Hanwha Vision America, explains,
“Ultimately, what we’re trying to do is really bring visibility of all access control transactions into our Wave VMS. That allows the end-users to manage the system from just one window, so they don’t have to go back and forth between systems.”

The integration of PDK’s event logs, customized reporting, and instant alerts improve security for the entire building. Simultaneously view detailed access activity information, verify entries alongside credential information, and navigate the user-friendly dashboard to associate specific cameras with each door. Instantly view, download, and archive video and access events, all under one dashboard.
Real-Time Soft Triggers
The PDK and Hanwha Wisenet WAVE integration has features to help users capture, record, and respond to every moment with minimal downtime. Users can interact with the access control system and deploy soft triggers with the push of a button directly on WAVE.
“It’s not just the forensic side of things, it also provides us the visibility in real-time. When an alarm comes in, we can actually get that video and see it very quickly. We can see them happening as they occur,” says Heintzman.
When there is an access event, the administrator can unlock or institute a lockdown while viewing a camera’s live stream in real time. The combined technology of both platforms facilitates easy management of the system while speeding up response times for better security.
Create Generic Events
With ProdataKey and Hanwha Wisenet WAVE, users can create generic events such as bookmarks and text overlays. System managers can automatically bookmark footage whenever a credential is scanned at a specific door.
“It saves a lot of time. Somebody can just jump on our system and say, who went through this door at this time? Then, go out and search for that information, and find the video very quickly and actually see it and verify it,”
Quickly identify linked footage of any particular event based on time, user, credential, or location for better investigations and more informed responses.
The combined technologies of ProdataKey and Hanwha Wisenet WAVE offer an end-to-end security solution built to rise to any challenge. From convenient mobile capabilities to advanced reporting, integration of access control and video management puts game-changing features at the touch of your fingertips. Build a security experience ready for the future.
