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.

Access and video move ever closer

The purchase of Brivo by Mr. Drako is yet another example of the deepening integration between access control and video. Although the entities will remain separate, the level of integration and offering will likely escalate. And, what makes this a unique case, according to IHS research analysts, is that the owner of a cloud-based video provider is expanding into cloud-based access control. While we have seen acquisitions of providers of cloud-services, e.g. Kaba and Keyscan and Avigilon with Redcloud, this is a first.
