Wireless locks integrated into ­access platform

November 2016 Access Control & Identity Management

Tyco Security Products launched the latest version of its EntraPass Security Software from Kantech with integration to ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless lock technology for deeper door density and reduction of wiring costs, as well as a new Connected Partner Programme for integration with third-party partner technologies for a more holistic solution.

EntraPass’s integration with Aperio wireless lock technology provides customers an affordable way to bring the flexibility of wireless locks to any door in a facility, including cabinets, drawers and server racks with little to no operational disruption. The Aperio locks become part of the EntraPass security software eco-system and can be managed from the EntraPass interface for a unified security management experience.

The access control decisions on these locks will continue to be made by the Kantech controllers. The wireless locks are ideal in settings such as universities, pharmacies, hospitals, human resources departments, data centres and any other door where electronic access control was previously cost-prohibitive. Aperio wireless lock technology offers the same real-time communication common to traditional access control systems, but also can be installed or retrofitted in existing facilities with little to no operational disruption.

In addition, Kantech joined the Connected Partner Programme from Tyco allowing third-party integrations to be developed using the Kantech software development kit (SDK). This allows partner technologies to interact with EntraPass and obtain pertinent information.

“Flexibility and affordability with a world-class user experience have been the cornerstones of Kantech solutions for many years and the focal points of EntraPass 7.0,” said Rafael Schrijvers, access control product marketing manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products. “In addition to further enhanced user experience innovation, EntraPass offers our customers wireless lock integrations and the ability to integrate with a variety of third-party technologies, providing an integrated, comprehensive security solution to a variety of markets.”

EntraPass also introduces several incremental features in this software release, including the redundant gateway support for better fault tolerance capabilities. In addition, the EntraPass Go mobile application has improved report options while the EntraPass Web client offers more customisation possibilities.
