New Aussie Access Control Solution Released
AXEZE proprietary system allows one tag to access to hundreds of sites anywhere in the world. Available in either industry standard Weigand or Axeze proprietary systems Axeze is easily integrated into home automation, lighting, aged care or security product. The Axeze Network System is designed so that regardless of the size of the project, its modular design and distributed processing power ensure that clients are only paying for what they need. The Axeze network system has been designed so that every access point, interface or I/O board is a single module that connects directly to a RS485 network. No need to purchase master controllers, expansion boards or 4 door controllers with features you may not need. Each module has all the processing power and information needed for its intended task without having to rely on resources of other modules on a network. No matter how big the system is or how busy the site, the response times remain constant with all access requests handled at the access point rather than placing reliance on small number devices creating a bottleneck and slowing down response times. This process prevents breakdown in communication or hardware failure, which could cripple an entire system. The distributed intelligence ensures that if the network did breakdown, each controller is able to continue controlling its access point, validating cards (tags) and maintaining its own log of events which can be up-loaded to the monitoring software once the system is back on line. Axeze’s single controller approach ensures Axeze customers can see a per-access-point-cost not visible with other systems. The price of any additional access point with the Axeze system is just the cost of the single door controller, no hidden costs and never an expansion board. This makes quoting easy and allows the customer to see a linear relationship between number of access points and cost of the system. Axeze IO boards allow clients to take control of the Lights, Air conditioners, Garden Sprinklers, Fountains, Alarms, CCTV cameras or any other utilities making the most use of other systems installed at the site whilst saving energy. By taking full advantage of the basic automation features of the Axeze system, installers can use “trigger actions” based on system events such as door forced, door left open, authorised access request, first person in, last person out. The Axeze system will respond to and process external inputs such as intercom door release, break glass sensor, or react according to the day and time You can integrate Axeze access control events to provide a higher level of automation or into existing automation systems using one of Axeze many high level interfaces. Axeze provides high level interfaces to 3rd party systems including alarms, automation and paging systems used to notify other systems of access control events helping you to make the most use of all systems installed at your site. Axeze Tags use an 80-bit unique identification number programmed at manufacture, providing 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 unique codes. All cards (tags) are pre-programmed at the manufacturing plant and Axeze controllers only accept “read only” cards. This ensures that copied cards will not be accepted by the system enhancing security. The Axeze tags are so secure that many car manufactures are using the same chips in their keys as a part of the ignition system replacing the easily copied key. The cost of the tags is sometimes an issue so Axeze interfaces with Weigand systems to ensure that economically priced access control cards can be used. Where clients want a higher level of security the Axeze proprietary system takes over. Distributed processing means each controller at each access point is capable of completely monitoring and controlling all inputs and card (tag) presentations which occur at the access point. This makes the system very powerful whether it is on-line with the Network Monitoring software granting access and recording events or off-line where all access and event logging is processed at the access point by the controller. So even if the network is cut or becomes busy the functionality and reliability of the Axeze Keyless Entry system is never compromised. The distributed nature of the system also makes the system very scalable and cost affective as each module is not dependent on other modules or the resources of a central controller, and there is no need for expander modules as each controller is uniquely addressed on a RS485 network. So it does not matter if you want to monitor 1 or 10,000 access points the software and hardware is the same and you only buy the number of controllers you need. The beauty of the isolation of each controller, network and even each system is that installation can be done in stages without affecting other components in the system and clients don’t have to pay for large control units with functionality they will never use. The flexibility of the Axeze network allows any combination of up to 62 modules per network. If a site grows beyond 62 modules, simply add another network converter to expand the system a further 62 modules. The monitoring software seamlessly links up to 32 networks. If at a later stage more access points, a new interface or more I/O is required all previous hardware remains and the additional module is just added to the network. This makes the Axeze system very easy to expand install and quote and it is fully upgradable. More than 1800 access points can be handled by an Axeze system. The Axeze network system has been designed so that every access point, interface or I/O board is a single module that connects directly to a RS485 network. No need to purchase expensive master controllers, expansion boards or 4 door controllers with features you may not need. A mixture of standalone and network systems or a mixture of Weigand and Axeze is available for all sites. This makes it easy for a retrofit when someone wants to upgrade a site. A Graphic User Interface enables further modularity and flexibility by allowing building owners, security and site managers to monitor and manage any Axeze network system across the Internet or Intranet using a fully encrypted password protected TCP/IP interface. This allows installers to set up complete isolation for isolated floors, multiple tenancies or separate sites such that users of one system are unable to see or modify the information on any other system and any failure of one system would not affect other systems The KEN-Mon software allows the end user to control their system, no complex programming codes or need to call out an installer to add a new card. The familiar Windows look and feel allows the average computer user to add and update information easily and quickly. By utilising the hardware of the PC, the monitoring software allows more complex TCP/IP interfaces and full zone control over multiple networks. The Axeze Controller, with its own Real Time Clock and unrestricted time zones, is capable of handling 1000 cards and 1000 events at each access point. These are actual time logged events, and do not include system checking and other irrelevant information. This means that when the system is offline it will be able to keep track of times for the logging of events and time restricted access control. Online the number of users and events is only limited by computer hardware. Facilities managers and the like are able to fully administer all User and Access permission’s, view current and previous access control events, program system outputs events and track a cardholder’s movement. The power of the KEN-Mon software allows those 32 networks to seamlessly link a network of up to 1984 modules. For more information contact Axeze on 61-8-83408200.
