Enterprise Access Control Solutions

A MARKET is a sort of commercial ballroom dance in which manufacturers and distributors flaunt their assets and integrators and installers accept or reject what’s on offer by committing to a particular product. The point here is that while integrators can ‘vote’ for the success of a new product or technology by using it, they can only contribute to the success of products that are offered to them. While integrators might contribute to upgrades, they are generally not plugged into R&D teams. 
This fundamental makes it interesting to consider what installers really think about products and functions in the key areas of enterprise access control, PSIM and unification – the bringing together of multiple solutions on a single user interface.

Concept Ethernet Interface

THE Concept LAN over Ethernet Interface (CLOE) provides a new convenient option for all Concept RS485-based LAN modules to be connected over standard TCP/IP Ethernet networks.

Compatible with its complete range of Security, Access Control & User Interface modules, CLOE introduces a vast array of installation possibilities for the Concept System. Now standard Ethernet network architecture including LAN’s, WAN’s, Wireless LAN’s, VPN’s, Intranet and even the Internet can be used to interface RS485 LAN modules back to the Concept 4000 central controller.

CLOE employs a master to slave style architecture and can scale from a single master to slave pair, through to multiple masters and multiple slaves within the one network. This allows separate RS485 LAN segments and Ethernet LAN segments to coexist within one overall system.

New TS0099 Enhanced IP Interface for GE Challenger from DAS

Benefits of the TS0099 include improved performance, easier installation, and lower cost than the TS0898, ensuring IP connectivity to management software or a central monitoring station that allows the Challenger system to be configured and managed remotely as well as locally, has never been more affordable.

Providing IP connectivity to the Challenger V8 panel allows significant savings in cabling by using existing IT infrastructure, and can avoid the cost of site visits via remote management of the Challenger system. The lower cost TS0099 also provides new features that include integrated firewall protection, auto-sensing 100 Mbps/10 Mbps network speed and field upgradeable firmware. Using event-driven mode instead of polled mode keeps the network bandwidth requirements to a minimum.

Fingerprint biometrics gaining traction

“Fingerprint recognition devices have been around for a number of years but they were initially commercially unsuccessful, primarily due to their high price,” says Justin Siller, an IMS Research analyst. “Over time pockets of opportunity have emerged where fingerprint biometrics have started to find real traction.”

According to the latest biometrics market report by IMS, the global market for fingerprint devices is forecasted to reach $650 million by 2013.

Government agencies such law enforcement and prisons have been utilizing the technology to collect data on criminals and secure facilities.

“In governmental buildings the use of fingerprint recognition for access control is increasing as governments worldwide seek higher levels of security. With certain areas of the government sector finding success with fingerprint devices, additional opportunities for the use of biometrics have emerged,” Siller says.
