Avigilon integration

In this article

Avigilon provides high-definition surveillance solutions, and is used by many companies to ensure secure access control and visitor logs.

How does this integration work?

Envoy will send a record of every visitor who signs in on the iPad into the Avigilon event log. Envoy will automatically create an identity in Avigilon for each new visitor.

You can configure Envoy to apply a certain identity type, site location, building and/or role for your visitor records. You can then utilize all of Avigilon’s features for your visitors, such as badge provisioning, security alerts and more.
