IP access control module

July 2016 Access Control & Identity Management

Tyco Security Products announced the 2-Reader IP Access Control Module (IP-ACM), an Ethernet edge device that extends the scalability and cost-effectiveness of a network-based access control system.

The IP-ACM is installed near the doors it controls, helping to reduce wiring and installation costs. The door module can use a facility’s existing IT network to securely communicate via AES 256-bit encryption with an iSTAR Ultra General Controller Module (GCM), where the access control decisions are made using the local access database.

The IP-ACM is a flexible device, capable of supporting two individual doors or one door with in-and-out readers. It is scalable – in a pure IP deployment, up to 32 IP-ACMs can be networked to one GCM. The door modules can even be used in a hybrid solution in conjunction with traditional centrally wired doors for retrofit situations.

The IP-ACM is one of the industry’s IP door modules that offers a configurable offline mode to allow authorised card holders to gain access if network communications are lost. The unit can be set to allow either no access or admit the last 1 000 previous known good cards or admit personnel from a specific personnel group. Card transactions are retained and uploaded when the IP-ACM comes back online. The IP-ACM also features a unique network latency alarm, allowing operators to proactively manage network issues.
