Access control products are designed to control entry, monitor & record attendance of people who already have, or will be issued with, a card, fob or door code. Focus Integrated Systems (FIS) can offer a product range that provides a highly flexible, scalable access control system designed to facilitate the most demanding requirements for any size enterprise from a standalone single door to a system which is capable of managing anything from hundreds to tens of thousands of users. This can be networked to up to 2,000 doors across different buildings in different continents.
The open format design enables the systems to operate with different types of technologies including proximity, contactless smart card and biometric. If a building has varying security levels the most appropriate reader can be installed e.g. a very high security area may require a biometric reader as compared to a door into a meeting room which may simply require a proximity reader. Systems can be cabled using a simple RS485 network or can be connected to a LAN with the latest controllers having a built in web servers to assist in remote set up and administration.
Applications include access control, door control and monitoring, time & attendance and elevator control. The system will also interface with the building’s existing intruder, fire and CCTV systems as required.
