Avigilon Control Center (ACC) has worked well for our
facilities, especially since we were able to link multiple types of cameras and
door access systems into one seamless tool now.
This software was the solution we were looking for when we began
searching for products that could complete the integration we needed. I think that ACC works well in most
environments for both doors and cameras.
Quite frankly the camera product seems a lot stronger resource than the
door access piece based on it features and ease of use, sometimes the door
access integration seems like a afterthought.
If anyone is searching for a resource that can bring doors and cameras
together, I would recommend ACC. If I were
only looking for a camera software, I would still recommend ACC. But if I were just searching for door access,
I would look elsewhere.

Usually, Meraki MV cost is quite high, so you need to deal with an experienced Cisco partner to make sure you're getting the greatest discounts you can have, especially for larger deployments. In opposite, in very small deals, Meraki MV can be an attractive solution based on price as you don't even need to buy a NVR. Just like with Meraki MR (access points), you can get great analytics info from the solution, and even more with some third party solutions on top of it. As you pay for a licence, Meraki has a evergreen model so make sure to always have the latest and greatest features.

Avigilon Control Center (ACC) offered us something we did not
have in Verkada, Meraki, and some of the lesser-known products we were
investigating. ACC offered us a
consolidation that would allow the use of most of our current door access and
video cameras already in place.
Additionally, their cloud-based features were also quite well received
by our management and HR teams who have taken advantage of their ease of use
and ability to use the products from a computer or even their smartphones.

While we havent tried other Cloud based camera and surveillance system, we feel that Cisco Meraki MV has offered us a true quality experience with their camera lineup ( second generation) - including the MV32 Fisheye, but mostly with their analytical features (location analytics) and wealth of integration thru third party solutions - mostly used for by our clients in the retail environment.

It would be very easy to configure a new camera at another location, as long as someone at that location can do the install. The camera can then be categorized in the console. Different video walls can be created so you can group the video feeds by site or department, etc
