Kantech Helm Offers Mobile Security Platform

Kantech, part of Tyco Security Products, has announced the release of Kantech Helm, a mobile security platform that enables security administrators to interact with the EntraPass security management software using a variety of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

Kantech Helm provides EntraPass security management software users with anytime, anywhere real-time management of over 20 security tasks. After downloading the app from the App Store or the Android Market, users can open a door remotely, add a user, delete a user, request a report and much more.

Kantech Helm has been developed to work with iPhone, iPod Touch and Android powered phones. In addition an app is available for the iPad and Android Powered Tablets.

“Mobility, flexibility and on-the-go security is the future,” said Mike DeMille, director of product management. “With Kantech Helm, security administrators do not need to be tied to a workstation to make changes to their EntraPass system. Users can remotely control their security system from anywhere using Kantech Helm without having to physically return to the office.”

Kantech Helm syncs to the EntraPass software and workstation to enable users to monitor and control the EntraPass-powered security system in real-time. It is an ideal solution for situations where a security administrator needs to manage the access control system after business hours, during the weekend or while traveling on a business trip. The app is free for EntraPass license holders.

EntraPass is a robust suite of high performance software that allows customers to design & operate any number of doors where card access is required. A highly scalable solution that can control hundreds of thousands of doors, EntraPass is compatible with Kantech’s entire line of door controllers.

EntraPass is available through Kantech’s worldwide distribution channels.
