Door Access & Access Control Management Solutions
Create a safer environment with web-based door access management. Protect your facilities, workplace and campus with controlled access for employees, students and staff. Securing entrances to buildings, offices, classrooms and other critical areas is key in an overall security and safety program.
Over the last three decades, standard door access control featured RFID systems triggered by an ID / access card or fob. While reliable and easy-to-use, a 125kHz radio frequency card system is not as secure as was once believed. In fact, a prox card can be cloned in seconds with readily available devices costing as little as $20.
Traditional access control solution using low-voltage RS485 cable run from control panel to reader and from reader to electronic lock. The control panel connects to a local network.
Pure IP Based
Each secure door uses an "intelligent" reader and connects back to the control panel via Ethernet. The reader connects to an electronic lock via low-voltage wiring. Each reader is essentially its own controller.
A wireless controller (PIM) connects via Ethernet to a local network. Wireless door locks (such as Schlage AD400) connect back to the PIM.
