AC2000 intelligent security management system

June 2012 Access Control & Identity Management

CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products, has announced the release of version 6.5 of AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) integrated access control and security management software. This latest release offers a range of new features including video integration, additions and enhancements to AC2000 WEB, integration to Microsoft Active Directory and much more. The new features and functionality of AC2000 SE v6.5 increase performance, simplicity and scope.

“AC2000 SE is an integrated security management system that is designed with the customer in mind, providing flexible solutions that help to increase security and improve business efficiency and operational effectiveness,” says Andrew Fulton, senior director of global sales, CEM Systems. “The latest release of AC2000 SE further reinforces this, offering additional powerful video integration capabilities that complement the existing range of supported integrations, making AC2000 SE a seamless security management solution for access control, video, fire and intrusion. Also, the increased web functionality that comes with AC2000 SE in this latest release enables users to access vital system information quickly and easily from anywhere in the world.”

AC2000 WEB is a suite of powerful and fully integrated browser-based applications for the CEM AC2000 access control and security management system. In addition to the current suite of AC2000 WEB applications which includes Web Visitor Management, Web Alarm Status Display, Web Device Status Display, Web Report and Web Dashboard, in v6.5 AC2000 WEB now provides additional Web Oneshot/Broadcast and Web Mimic functionality. Web Oneshot/Broadcast and Web Mimic provide instant access to remote door opening functionality and viewing of current system alarms which can then be easily filtered and cleared from the system.

Complementing the range of existing American Dynamics integrations, the latest version of AC2000 SE is also fully integrated with the ADTVR giving the ability to associate access control alarms with digital video clips and to view live camera footage. This enables AC2000 SE to become a single user interface acting as a security management system and removes the need for multiple separate systems.

The new integration of AC2000 SE v6.5 with Microsoft Active Directory enables single sign on using Windows credentials, allowing for instant access to the AC2000 SE software without the need to enter a user name and password. The directory synchronisation allows for import and continual updating of card holder details, increasing operational efficiency by removing the need for duplication of data entry.

AC2000 SE v6.5 also offers a range of additional features and improvements including personnel batch card printing and data import tool. Further increasing the convenience and time saving functionality of AC2000, Personnel batch card printing allows for multiple badges to be printed from AC2000 SE.
