Access control in a box

November 2011 Access Control & Identity Management

Distributed to the Africa continent as part of EMS AfricaHub solutions in a box range, the Bioscript Biometric Access Control in a Box (BAC) incorporates the affordable, yet scalable 4G Lite Suite of products into a complete package that can be deployed for residential or in small businesses and large companies alike.

Implementing a biometric access control solution may have been thought of as a daunting task in the past, in addition to being considered extremely expensive. However, with the introduction of BA, there is no excuse not to bring your security system into the 21st century. With various package options available at a cost below traditional card reader-based solutions, you can now start from scratch with a fully biometric solution or integrate both biometric and non-biometric devices for a more flexible system.

The simplicity of BAC allows for a business of any size to implement biometric access control in a way that is fully scalable. Once all the components have been installed, additional devices and SecureControl modules can be purchased individually and managed using the SecureAdminLite software that comes with the original kit.

Given the simplicity of BAC, the applications are virtually unlimited, from the residential market to large enterprise deployments. If you ever found yourself forgetting your access card or worse yet, your home keys, then you cannot argue with the convenience of a solution that allows your biometric data to grant access to either one, as it is always with you and can never be left behind.
