New access interface
November 2016, Access Control & Identity Management
Bosch has given a more user-friendly interface to its Access Professional Edition (APE) software solution to allow more efficient use of its feature set.
New APE 3.4 enables installers and system integrators to manage access control. It goes way beyond locking and unlocking of doors. It allows a large number of functionalities from reception registration, badge registration and entrance control to entrance monitoring, alarm management and video verification.
Though the software solution has retained all of its functionality, its new interface offers a more streamlined, user-friendly experience as it reduces a variety of potentially distracting features by using a smaller range of colours. Other changes include a more efficient and faster updating and reducing of the number of outdated icons and toolbars to further facilitate navigation, while keeping the access control solution’s capabilities.
APE is a complete and comprehensive security solution as it can be integrated with other building management and security functions like elevator management and intrusion protection. It is also enabled for seamless integration into the Milestone xProtect video management software.
APE 3.4 is ideal for entry to mid-scale access control needs in industrial, commercial or retail buildings, especially where the full and more complex feature set of Bosch’s Building Integration System (BIS) is not required.
