Axis 1001 Access Controller: Review

Axis 1001 NDC connector blocks

Axis Communications 1001 Network Door Controller is a deceptively simple unit that carries access control onto networks. Ease of installation, browser-based setup and management and scalability are strong points. 

WE’VE talked about the new Axis Communications’ 1001 Network Door Controller in SEN before but this is the first time I’ve taken a look at it in the flesh. While the 1001 was released in the U.S. at the end of last year, it won’t be available locally until Q4 2014. According to Axis, the A1001 Network Door Controller is the first non-proprietary and open IP-based access controller on the market.

Inner Range Webtegriti Cloud Security And Access Control System

Inner Range Webtegriti
Inner Range Webtegriti

It’s not released yet but I got a sneak preview of Inner Range’s latest development, Webtegriti, a browser-based security and access control system that simplifies installation and management of small electronic security solutions. 

AT its core, Webtegriti is a controller in a compact poly housing incorporating browser-based software and everything else required for a small access control solution. The solution will support doors, cameras and alarm inputs – features and scalability will be finalised by a focus group of installers in the next month or so. The completed core comms for expansion is RS-485 and support for other comms technologies is also in development. 

Given some of the cloud-ward movements going on in the market it makes sense that Inner Range should cover this base. That it can do so with a solution like Webtegriti shows the value of owning a serious engineering capability.

The recent upgrades to EBI centre include improved integration – EBI is now compatible with many common Web services to provide facility managers and IT staff with new ways to customise how building systems import and mine data, and synthesise the information.

There’s increased efficiency – facility managers can program and coordinate facility-wide systems — including HVAC, lighting, security and life safety — in minutes using the revamped automation engine and scheduling.

CEM Systems emerald IP Reader Controller

CEM Systems emerald reader controller

CEM Systems’ Emerald IP reader controller working with CEM AC2000 software, gives a very clear idea of the power networking is going to bring to access control solutions. As well as being a handsome device, it’s as clever as a fox. 

MY demo of emerald at the SEN office in Sydney was a real eye-opener. Sure, I’ve heard of emerald before but I’d never really considered the specifications in enough depth to develop a proper appreciation for this solution. Showing me over the reader are Zac Donev, sales director - South East Asia and Oceania at Tyco International, and David Galligan, strategic sales manager at Tyco Security Products. 

CEM Systems, which is a subsidiary of Tyco International, calls emerald an intelligent access terminal and there’s a reason for this. Along with being nice to look at with its 4.3-inch LCD touch screen, emerald offers a lot of functionality.
