Johnson Controls has introduced the iSTAR Ultra LT door controller from Software House, a special edition iSTAR Ultra door controller that provides a full IP architecture and enterprise level features for small to mid-sized access control deployments.
iSTAR Ultra LT centralises all access control decision processing and secures network communications while allowing end users to use existing infrastructure and Power over Ethernet capabilities to reduce costs. With a scalable architecture that includes support for up to eight card readers and 500 000 cardholders, iSTAR Ultra LT is ideal for businesses seeking a flexible, future-proof access control system that can be expanded as needed.
iSTAR Ultra LT’s control module maintains the local access control database and makes all access decisions, centralising access control management for operators. It can be shared with several Ethernet door modules, providing added costs savings. Its advanced encryption and authentication ensure that communications between access controllers and doors are cyber secure, and it also includes a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) smartphone application that allows operators to easily configure and manage controllers and locks, lowering commissioning, and saving time and effort.
Said Rafael Schrijvers, access control product marketing manager, EMEA, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls, “iSTAR Ultra LT’s enhanced cybersecurity, IP architecture and generous scalability provide our customers with the building blocks they need for the future.”
Similar to iSTAR Ultra, iSTAR Ultra LT combines support for traditional hard-wired access control doors with support for wireless lock sets, all in the same controller. Ultra LT supports both ASSA ABLOY Aperio and Schlage NDE, AD300 and AD400 wireless locks for added flexibility and installation savings and use of the controller’s PoE Plus capabilities lowers installation costs further. It includes two gigabits of memory and 16 gigabits of storage, as well as a single host/database connection for every eight doors.
End users can use iSTAR Ultra LT with the C•CURE 9000 Security and Event Management platform from Software House.
