Siemens SiPass From Alarmcorp

The core of SiPass is the AC5100 advanced central controller, which can be programmed with up to 500,000 cardholders and up to 96 doors. It’s designed for flexibility and that means you get 6 separate field level network (FLN) channels. Each FLN is capable of hosting up to 16 local devices for access control monitoring input devices or controlling output devices. With a range of input and output modules and supporting software solutions and extensions, there’s plenty of room to move. 
The ACC5100 also has a diagnostic port that provides a direct connection to its microprocessor to facilitate the download of operating instructions (firmware). Firmware updates can be made without having to visit the controller cabinets. Communication to the host system occurs via a 10/100Mb Ethernet connection. This allows communications over any WAN or LAN where devices on the network can be assigned a unique IP address. There’s also multimedia alarm reporting.

Lockwood 001 Touch Lock

IT remains to be see how the market will take to new Lockwood 001 Touch but the product deserves success and it looks to be a very clever application of the latest technology to a chassis that is common to the majority of homes and small commercial businesses in Australia and New Zealand. There must be millions of doors secured with the Lockwood 001 deadlock. 
As a solution the Lockwood 001 Touch incorporates an electronic touch screen lock with the security of the 001 Deadlock and users can use either a security PIN code or a 125kHz prox card to unlock doors, eliminating the need for multiple mechanical keys and retaining the flexibility to change the code at any time.

125kHz Prox, 13.56mHz Mifare or DESfire

TO the uninitiated prox is prox is prox. You hold the card towards the reader and thanks to the mystical powers of something called RF, the reader interrogates and then recognises a card, and activates an electric strike to facilitate access. 
Of course, things are obviously more complex than this and I recently visited the folks at BQT Solutions for a demonstration on the way various proximity technologies function, as well as a behind the scenes look at ways in which they can be defeated. Suffice to say, this was an eye opening experience. 
When I arrive BQT’s office, Dave Tullipan and Matt Green have a table load of gadgets, readers and laptops ready to outline the variations between 125kHz read-only prox (about 90 per cent of the market) and higher frequency technologies like 13.56mHz Mifare, whose higher frequency and smart processor offers more security.

Access Control: Selecting Management Systems

RIGHT up front let’s talk about distributed multi-server environments. We need to get this under our belts immediately because as we move on to local access control management next month, the nature of applications is going to have a major impact on the way we want the features of access management systems expressed. 
Simply, if all you’re doing is handling a single site; then door controllers and a central server, or door controllers and a dedicated workstation; may be all you need. But if you’ve got a multi-site or multinational application on your hands then you will need to think multi-server for reasons of economy in both comms and operational support. That’s what we’ll talk about here.

Access Control Fundamentals: Door Control

WHEN you think about access control one of the key challenges is recognising the exactly what such a solution constitutes. If you’re a cardholder, access control is a reader and a card. If you’re handling cardholder admin, it’s software management. 
If you’re a security manager, it’s automated reports and ongoing card costs. If you’re an installer, access control is more complicated – a sprawling network of readers, locks, door controllers and central controllers linked to local area networks via adjacent switches. 
But even this more nuanced view of the structure of an access control solution fails to capture the complexity and capability of the modern system. That’s because access control brings together hardware, comms and software components in a way no other electronic security systems do.

Inner Range Aperio Module

Designed with installation ease in mind the Aperio modules simply connect directly to the Concept 4000 RS485 LAN and are sized to install into very small enclosures or into existing equipment housings. Set-up and commissioning is also straight forward.

From the Inner Range system point of view the programming is identical to that used when connecting a standard Wiegand reader, and the module can be commissioned and operated with or without the need for Insight front end software.

Aperio is a wireless access control technology that radically reduces the installation time and cost of installing traditional electronic access control devices. Aperio cylinders replace traditional mechanical cylinders and contain a wireless transceiver and a card reader.

Chase Distributing PCSC fault tolerant systems and controllers

The first fault tolerant architecture system has been designed to provide redundant processing of its system software, LiNC-NET and its fault tolerant controllers.

High reliability and security is sustained through a built-in self-healing process upon either critical hardware or communications failure. The system capacities are unlimited and with 24-digit card number support, it easily meets current FIPS 201 and future high security card requirements.

“We utilized the latest technologies and processes to provide the most reliable system in the world. It’s a revolutionary product. It’s the first system where a hardware failure will not degrade operations or the security of the system”, said Mas Kosaka, President and CEO of PCSC.
