Tyco delivers Wireless Lock Integration and Connected Partner Program
The newest version of Kantech’s EntraPass Security Software includes ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless lock integration and a robust partner program for integration with third-party technologies
Tyco Security Products introduces the latest version of its EntraPass Security Software from Kantech with integration to ASSA ABLOY Aperio® Wireless Lock Technology for deeper door density and reduction of wiring costs as well as a new Connected Partner Program for integration with third-party partner technologies for a more holistic solution.
EntraPass’ integration with ASSA ABLOY Aperio Wireless Lock Technology provides customers an affordable way to bring the flexibility of wireless locks to any door in a facility including cabinets, drawers and server racks with little to no operational disruption. The Aperio locks become part of the EntraPass security software eco-system and can be managed from the EntraPass interface for a unified security management experience. The access control decisions on these locks will continue to be made by the state-of-the-art and reliable Kantech controllers. The wireless locks are ideal in settings such as universities, pharmacies, hospitals, human resources departments, data centres and any other door where electronic access control was previously cost prohibitive. Aperio Wireless Lock Technology offers the same real-time communication common to traditional access control systems, but also can be installed or retrofitted in existing facilities with little to no operational disruption.
In addition, Kantech joins the Connected Partner Program from Tyco Security Products allowing third-party integrations to be developed using the Kantech software development kit (SDK). This allows the partner technologies to interact with EntraPass and thereby obtaining pertinent information such as card holders and events directly from EntraPass.
Rafael Schrijvers, Access Control Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Tyco Security Products said:
“Flexibility and affordability with a world class user experience have been the cornerstones of Kantech solutions for many years and the focal points of EntraPass 7.0. In addition to further enhanced user experience innovation, EntraPass offers our customers wireless lock integrations and the ability to integrate with a variety of third-party technologies, providing an integrated, comprehensive security solution to a variety of markets.”
EntraPass also introduces several incremental features in this software release, including the redundant gateway support for better fault tolerance capabilities. In addition, the EntraPass Go mobile application has improved report options while the EntraPass Web client offers more customisation possibilities.
The ASSA ABLOY Aperio Wireless Locks supported by the integration are ideal for a wide array of environments including mortise, cylindrical, and exit devices for standard doors and an electronic cylinder to replace a traditional mechanical keyed cylinder. Wireless cabinet locks, which can be used for cabinets, lockers and drawers, are well-suited for healthcare facilities for storing equipment, prescriptions, patient files and other valuables, while a server rack lock option improves the security level of data centers and hardware.
