IQinVision has announced a small scale access control software offering to be used with their Megapixel cameras. It works with their PRO series of cameras and allows users to open doors, activate alarms, etc from a user's PC. This solution is not meant to replace access control systems in traditional applications. Note: I am obtaining a copy of this software to test.
This type of solution appears popular with megapixel cameras. Compare to Mobotix's ExtIO and CamIO.
[Update 2012: This offering never gained any popularity.]
