The new Suprema BioStar 2.1 includes a number of software and hardware updates that further improve the usability and expandability of the platform. The release includes BioStar 2 API, BioStar 2 Device SDK, and BioStar 2 Cloud Solutions. Additionally, the platform expands its product portfolio to include BioStar 2 Mobile App and DM-20 multi-door control module.
The platform offers a number of different integration options via its API or Extension Framework. The new device SDK enables other security solutions to directly manage Suprema devices. Along with mobile app and DM-20, the enhanced built-in access control functionality allows system designers to configure complex systems and have users easily maintain the system.
The comprehensive line up of software tools gives developers a wide range of development options for BioStar 2. BioStar 2 API is a set of REST APIs, which use JSON formatted data for requests and responses for easier understanding. The API is designed to manage complex operations so that developers can focus on developing custom access control system or integrating biometrics into third-party systems. If developers wish to use BioStar 2 as the basis of their development platform, they can use extension framework to incorporate additional functionality into BioStar 2.
BioStar 2 functionality is built based on the concept of modularised application. The enhanced access control feature is offered as an additional module to the core platform and it is developed using BioStar 2 API. The API itself will be available as open source software for developers to use it as a reference for custom development. Furthermore, compact BioStar 2 server requires minimal system resources and provides flexibility to be installed in multiple hardware such as time and attendance terminals, NVR, NAS or IoT hub.
BioStar 2.0 offered high user convenience such as automatic user synchronisation, device discovery and update notification. The 2.1 release extends user convenience and combines new enhanced access control features to extend the usability of the platform. The new features include the ability to set anti-passback and fire alarm rules to provide a more comprehensive solution. User convenience is also extended through the user import/export feature which allows for the management of large amounts of users quickly and efficiently.
The DM-20 accessory can be connected to the Suprema master device to be used to replace traditional legacy controllers and to use third-party Wiegand readers to configure the system. BioStar 2 Mobile App, developed using BioStar 2 API, gives access freedom by using the connection through BioStar 2 Cloud to control the system and to perform multiple operations. It can manage users on the fly, control doors remotely, and receive notifications even when the operator is not monitoring a stationary client window.
