Historically, access control systems consisted of Basic (non-intelligent) readers that simply read card numbers or PINs on key cards and forwarded analog signals over many wires between remote door readers and central door control panels in the back room. Legacy central control panels only supported a finite number of doors and door readers, which ultimately required a complete system installation... the ability to expand the systems to accommodate additional doors was a costly endeavor.
The Intellipoint™ access control readers are different. Door readers can flexibly and incrementally be added as required, and the number of doors and card readers supported by the core Intellipoint™ software is unlimited.The Intellipoint™ IP-based door card readers replace legacy panel based door control technology and act as small localized intelligent computers that store information about the access control system’s use inside of each door reader. Stored on a basic computer running a Windows O/S, the Intellipoint™ software stores the credentials of authorized users and sends this information along with all of the signals needed to control access to each door to the Intellipoint™ door readers where the information is stored. Since programming is localized into each door reader, the system operates even during times of network failure.
The Intellipoint™ software is a flexible and powerful application that allows administrative personnel to define user credentials and to access a database of door reader locations, badge/credential assignments, time in-out logs, shift calendars and entry permissions.Intellipoint™ is a fully integrated access control solution protecting everything from industrial sites, manufacturing facilities, multi-dwelling residential environments, government facilities and more.
