Access with Axxess

February 2017 Access Control & Identity Management

Creating a business environment geared around ease-of-use, reliability and cost-effectiveness is a primary driver for MiRO. The recent addition of the Axxess-E range of wireless access control solutions to its portfolio is clearly underpinned by the company’s vision of creating increased return on investment for its customers.

Garth Baird, CEO of Optimised Axxess, says that the development team responsible for Axxess-E leveraged their 20-plus years in access control system development and support to identify and address issues related to hardwired access control systems.

“Some of the challenges faced by customers include bad connection procedures during installation and use of inferior or incorrect cables, which both lead to an unstable system. It is challenging to do fault-finding when something goes wrong down the line with larger hardwired systems. Complexity increases proportionately with the size of the installation.

“The idea behind the development of Axxess-E was to speed up installation times and simplify the installation. Installers can complete projects much faster, which enables them to take on more projects with the same labour force. Simpler installations minimise the cost of maintenance and reduce the aggravation that customers experience when trying to effectively undertake fault-finding,” he continues.

Site problems are often caused by third-party contractors who move into a site to perform work that is not related to the access control system. Cabling can be cut or be partially damaged, a situation that leads to intermittent faults.

Apart from reduced installation time and cost savings, Axxess-E wireless access control solutions provide customers with a number of other benefits. The intelligent transmission, with Clear Channel Assessment, means that data crashing is avoided, since devices only transmit when the channel is clear. The easy-to-use software development kit enables customers to integrate the Axxess-E hardware into their own software or management system to expand the functionality of their system. Using a Wiegand interface, the software seamlessly integrates with well-known biometric readers for full wireless functionality.

“We anticipate a mindset change from installers when they weigh up the advantages of wireless over hardwired access control systems. By reducing the installation time required, installers will be able to increase their workload and turnover. Together with our own technical team, MiRO will provide a large platform from which we will be able to both advise customers on best fit and provide extensive support for the Axxess-E range,” says Baird.
