At the recent ASIS show in Las Vegas, Ilco Unican announced it has added numerous new options to its full-featured, modular, Windows-based access control system. Evolving over 16 years, the fourth generation on-line system now combines distributed intelligence with the ability to monitor thousands of alarms, marry access control functions with elevator control and verify guard tours. Users can also create and manage customer photo ID badges and print user images on demand.
“Today’s access control system must provide total compatibility with enterprise-wide systems and handle new technologies and applications as the company and its IT system evolve,” emphasises Michael Kincaid, Ilco Unican Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Commercial Access Control. “Millenium’s 32 bit architecture, multitasking, distributed intelligence and ODBC compatibility already meets the first objective. Now we are broadening the suite to appeal to small and large users and provide scalability for their futures.”
A new dial-up modem control can be programmed to account for time zone differences as it communicates with systems throughout the world. It can also be programmed for a call back feature, adding to total security and data integrity. All Windows-compatible modems are supported. Millenium can also integrate with corporate LAN and WAN systems.
Millenium 2.0 controls 10 elevators and 64 floors per site controller. Up to 1000 site controllers can be cascaded to control more floors or elevators. Each elevator controller can handle as many as 40 000 users per site.
Standard readers can be used to log security guards as they make their rounds. Millenium supports up to 100 programmable tours with 96 stops per tour. If a guard is outside a time window, the system automatically creates an exception report.
The new Millenium 2.0 also features an integrated, dynamically linked database for increased photo badging capabilities. Once personal data is entered into the database, it is automatically linked to the user’s photograph. Customised photo ID badges can incorporate stored images such as fingerprints, barcodes, signature and company logo.
The Millenium 2.0 user’s database is exportable and importable into the Ilco Unican 950 open architecture standalone lock, allowing the 950 to have a truly seamless database functionality when interfaced.
Readers supported include magnetic stripe, barcode, proximity, Wiegand, touchkey, biometric and Ilco Unican’s Marlok. Readers can be mixed and matched throughout a system.
“With Millenium 2.0, users can start small and grow to handle 100 000 access points distributed over 1000 sites,” adds Kincaid. “Millenium’s unique distributed architecture assures quick installation, easy troubleshooting, affordable system expansion and continued operation even if the computer or communications wiring fails.”
