Sielox Showcases Advanced Layered Security System Solutions
Sielox LLC is demonstrating its portfolio of layered security systems here at ISC West 2019 in booth #13109, which address the complexity of providing the right combination of features and configurations to best accommodate specific applications and needs. Featured solutions include: the new release of Pinnacle™ v.10.4 Access Control Solution; Sielox CLASS™ Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System; AnyWare™ Browser-Based Access Control Platform; and the company's highly-touted 1700 Intelligent Controllers.
Designed for seamless integration with one another, Sielox access control and emergency notification systems are also ideal for stand-alone operation, and are scalable for future expansion.
"Sielox has always operated under the principle of continuous technology and process improvement in order to consistently deliver solutions that deliver the performance and functionality required to meet our customers' evolving security and operational challenges," said Karen Evans, President, Sielox. "Our innovative layered security solutions provide users with a high degree of flexibility when configuring the systems they need today and tomorrow."
Sielox solutions on display include:
The newly-released Pinnacle v.10.4 Access Control Platform allows users to seamlessly access the features of Allegion's Schlage Engage™ WiFi locks enabling them to be easily integrated with Pinnacle Schlage WiFi access platform feature. Additionally, Allegion Schlage wireless locks can now receive firmware updates through Sielox's 1700 Controllers, which can save integrators tremendous amounts of time and money when upgrading and maintaining large systems. Additional enhancements in Pinnacle v.10.4 include: Transport Layer Security (TLS 1.2) that establishes an encrypted communication path between two applications, "wrapping" the entire application protocol inside the secure link; and Pinnacle LDAP Sync Service (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol), that simplifies administration by dynamically importing and verifying user and cardholder data through data synchronization.
The Sielox CLASS (Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System) Emergency Notification and Response Solution provides vital emergency status details to responders so they can best manage events. Administrators or any designated initiator can issue an emergency alert to notify responders of conditions in real time while communicating status via one of five programmable color-coded alert levels. Occupants within a facility can then report status at their specific location enabling responders to view detailed facility maps with compiled room-by-room color-coded conditions that update in real time as the situation evolves. A chat feature enables two-way communications between occupants and first responders to exchange detailed information or instructions. CLASS can also issue messages with response instructions specific to each alert level via email or text, and override any PC on the network to ensure the highest visibility of alert status.
The Sielox AnyWare Browser-Based Access Control Platform features a variety of enhancements that make it faster, easier and more scalable for small to mid-sized businesses to take access management mobile. The intuitive and easy-to-use AnyWare solution features a capacity increase from 8 up to 40 doors, allowing for an increased number of controllers and readers. Other features include; custom fields allowing users the ability to add additional information to the cardholder record including the card holder images, multiple card type formats, reader block and privilege access levels.
The Sielox 1700 Intelligent Controller is an intelligent fully-distributed controller ensuring decisions even if communications have been interrupted. New I/O series boards provide a flexible, cost-effective means to expand the input and output functionality of the access control solution, a next-generation access control panel, utilizing 32-bit technology with real-time operations for speed, performance and reliability. The new series have the same footprint and mounting as the Sielox 1700 controller; are backwards compatible with Sielox Pinnacle and AnyWare systems; and are cost-effective, not requiring a separate backplane and power module.
Integrated with Sielox's 1700 Controller and the AnyWare and Pinnacle software platforms, Conekt Mobile Cedentials and Readers from Farpointe Data use Bluetooth to enable communication between smartphones and readers. No personal data is required or collected from the user or integrator, and multiple credentials can be stored on the app.
The Sielox portfolio of enhanced core products will be released in Q2 2019.
