New access control solution designed for SME applications

Dublin, Eire

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 ACT-pro 1500 single door IP controller can be set-up and administered via its built-in web server or through the established ACT-win 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 ACT-pro door stations and supports 15,000 users.

For sites with only one ACT-pro 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.

The new ACT-pro reader range combines ACT reliability with a modern and elegant design that will fit into any environment. These multi-format RFID readers are available as pin, pin & proximity or proximity only options. Suitable for both indoors or outdoors they have mullion, surface or flush mount options.
