Integrated access control

July 2003 Access Control & Identity Management

The Concept Access 4000 seamlessly combines security monitoring, access control of doors and lifts and building management technologies within the one system.

Integration of technologies offers considerable control over the movements and actions of staff and visitors as well as significant cost savings for the property owner, tenant or manager, for example:

* All users are assigned individual permissions within the system and access to and from any area, movement through doors and access via lifts, etc, are strictly controlled, reported and recorded.

* Reduction in the time required to administer separate systems and produce composite reports. All information is now contained within the same system and compatibility of data across applications is not an issue.

* Having granted access to a user, the system automatically turns off the security alarm to reduce unnecessary alarms events and turns on the lights to prevent accidents.

* Reduced cost due to the reduction in cabling and labour required to install and maintain individual systems.

* Reduced cost as a result of the system's ability to 'share' detectors, inputs and outputs across technologies. For example, the same motion detector used to detect intruders after-hours may be utilised to automatically turn on lights in the room when somebody enters during business hours. If there has been no movement in the room for a given time, the lights may be turned off, further reducing costs through more efficient energy management.


* The system may be divided into as many as 250 independent or interdependent partitions or areas.

* Each partition or area may be operated independently of any other to give the look and feel of up to 250 individual systems.

* Each partition or area may be programmed to communicate to different locations or devices by different communication formats. So, some events can be reported locally to computers or printers, whilst other events are reported to a remote central monitoring station.

* Review memory stores a record of events occurring within the system.

* The concept system is expandable to over 2000 detectors, inputs and outputs.
