The wide range of solutions that Softcon offers combines primarily microprocessor-based hardware products with MS Windows-compliant software.

The software packages are highly configurable, event-driven applications with 'open' database structures, which facilitate the use of databases at any location, via ODBC's using SQL. Some crucial features include alarm notification via SMS and e-mail; audit trail; remote database synchronisation; user-defined graphical interface; and a variety of flexible reports.

Softcon controllers are intelligent units, capable of functioning in an on-line or off-line mode and storing up to 65 000 sequential or 15 000 random card numbers, with up to 2900 transactions buffer off-line. The CR355 is a 2-reader controller with 16 supervised inputs, as well as 10 outputs and comes complete with power supply and battery backup unit and has the ability to interface to smartcard, biometric, proximity, magnetic stripe, infrared, bar code and other readers.

Approximately 30 000 Softcon controllers - some standalone and some as a part of on-line systems - are currently providing control at people's fingertips in 29 countries. These numbers prove that Softcon has a trusted and reliable name in the access control industry.
