Access control solution designed for small and medium enterprises

Access Control Technology (ACT) Ltd. has launched a new access control solution that has been designed to suit all types of SME's located in a single building and not requiring more than 32 protected doors.
The ACTpro 1500 single door IP controller can be set-up and administered via its built-in web server or through the established ACTwin software application. Key features include voltage monitoring, break glass monitoring, status LEDs for fault indication and cable management improvements such as a raised PCB and more space in the enclosure. It is expandable to up to 32 doors via ACTpro door stations and supports 15,000 users.

According to ACT, for sites with only one ACTpro 1500 the built-in web server is ideal for setting up and administrating the access control system. The web server reduces the potential for IT issues e.g. getting access to a PC, passwords, etc when installing applications. The simplicity of the web interface decreases the time spent on configuring and administering the system and on training the end user.
