Honeywell Security & Communications
Honeywell’s NetAXS-123 with Ethernet virtual loop (EVL) is a web-based access control system that enables integrators to provide customers with simple, scalable and affordable access control. The system’s modular design allows businesses to purchase only as much access control as needed – down to the specific number of doors, making it easy to add more doors anytime. EVL eliminates the need for long runs of multiple cables by replacing them with just one PoE cable per door, which means reduced installation time and reduced costs. The scalable system paves the way for business owners to expand access control as needs change.
Secura Key’s new white paper on its NOVA.16 access control panel, “Secura Key’s NOVA.16—Something New for Small Systems,” explains the new system architecture and how it lowers installation, hardware and expansion costs, and also explaining the technology behind the product. The white paper describes the new system configuration, the more efficient distribution of processing power, how the product was developed, and why RS485 communications were selected over other alternatives. It also details backward compatibility and retrofit scenarios. These white papers are useful to systems integrators, OEMs, and Application Developers in both the Security and RFID channels. They are written for an executive level audience.
Secura Key now offers updated sample architects and engineers specifications for its SK-NET Software and two new access control panels: the SK-ACPE-LE, an upgraded version of the SK-ACP 2-door panel; and the NOVA.16, a new 16-door access control panel. These specifications are available on the Secura Key website in MS Word document format, allowing users to them cut and paste them into the standard AIA specification template. Architects and engineers specifications make it easier for consultants and system integrators, to create and/or respond to complex bid specifications and RFQ’s, saving the time required to reformat information from product data sheets.
The number of agile working organizations is increasing rapidly and so is the question for secure storage for peoples’ personal belongings. In response to this, Nedap has integrated Locker Management into the 3.1.1 release of its AEOS Security Management Platform. Employees, visitors and contractors can now use their access cards to access lockers, filing cabinets, laptop lockers or post boxes. The straightforward user interface increases the usability of the system and it reduces the risk that user errors occur. This way, Nedap made access control at micro level accessible to everyone, while offering the flexibility, cost effectiveness and ease of use which is so familiar to AEOS users.

DNA Fusion v6.1 users can now implement persistent access groups to simplify access assignment across multiple controllers. Users can also take advantage of biometric technology with enrollment to the Suprema line of readers through DNA Fusion. Version 6.1 features a new VMS integration with March Networks including live and archived video, PTZ control, and scanning for cameras.
Automatic Systems’ speed gates are BIS (Biometric Identification Systems) compatible, allowing for seamless identification and access. By seamlessly integrating biometric authentication technology into the SlimLane speed gates, users do not need to stop or carry badges, therefore increasing throughput rate. BIS readers and lights are installed inside SlimLane and work via software or dry contacts. Users are pre-enrolled with biometrics and validated as they approach the gates. SlimLane opens automatically when authorized individuals walk through. In cases of attempted fraud or tailgating an alarm is generated.
