IP Based Door Access and Entry Control Systems Integrate with IP Camera Surveillance Systems to Provide a Complete Security System

Network attached Door Access Control Systems
Each Isonas IP reader attaches directly to the network and is powered using PoE. This modular IP based door control system allows you to add one door at a time. The expensive control panel is no longer required! The ISONAS IP Door Access Controller and Reader includes all the functionality that used to be distributed between the reader and control panel. Now it’s all in one unit. With intelligence built into each and every unit, it operates even if your network is down.

This IP based door access system integrates with your IP camera surveillance system to provide a complete security system.  Select the convergence database software that displays door entry information with the video captured when the door reader is used. Intercoms can be integrated with video management software to provide manual entry for visitors and deliveries.

IP Door Readers

rc-04_family of IP door readersISONAS IP door readers are both a reader and a controller. No control box is required since all the intelligence is in the IP reader.

The IP Reader connects directly to the Ethernet network and is powered by PoE. IP door readers have the advantage of being very easy to install.

Since the reader converts the PoE power to 12 VDC, you can power locks without running additional power wires. All you need is the CAT 5 drop to the reader.  The latest RC04 readers are available in a number of different styles and capability. You can select models that mount on the side of the door frame (mullion) or on the wall.  The latest models provide the option to use your smartphone (Bluetooth) as the credential.

The readers have all the intelligence built in so even if the network is down the reader keeps working. Of course it’s best to use a UPS on the network switch or the midspan that’s providing the PoE. Learn more

Access Control Software

You can select Pure Access Cloud software, that uses a remote cloud server, or Pure Access Manager software that runs on your Windows computer. Pure Access Manager is on-premise software.  This is the classic model of providing a perpetual license that allows you to run the software on your own Windows computer.

Cloud software runs on a remote server and is provided under a monthly or yearly subscription plan.  Both solutions provide similar capability.  Take a look at our article, Cloud Versus On-Site License to help you determine which platform is best for you. Or, contact us for help selecting the right solution for your door access control application.

Pure Access Manager

Pure Access Manager

Pure Access Manger is on premises software that controls all your ISONAS door readers.  The software manages and controls all the door access readers and is controlled by your authorized security personnel.

Once you have customized your desired access control, the software sends all the information to all the IP readers. The reader stores and processes all the commands. This means that even if the network goes down, the readers have all the information necessary to continue to operate.

Pure Access Manager supports an unlimited number of doors and card holders. This is a full featured Access Control software system. It provides fine-detailed level control of all access security related issues. Reports are available for all system activity, as well as real time reporting on who is currently in the facility. The software manages and controls all the door access readers and is controlled by your authorized security personnel.

Legacy Software

DB Crystal Matrix Software™ has been discontinued and replaced by Pure Access Manager. This software platform ran on your Windows PC and provided easy enrollment, allowing you to define who, where and when people are allowed in. It used the SQL data structure making it very easy to integrate with video recording systems.

EasyWeb-2015 has also been discontinued and replaced by Pure Access.  Contact us for details. Pure Access provides some enhancements that were not available in EasyWeb and provides similar functions to DB Crystal. The software is browser based, and enhances your access control system.  It works with the latest readers.  Pure Access Manager includes Active Directory integration to make it easier to register user rights.

Remote Door Access Control Using an Intercom and IP Camera

Door Access Control Systems
If you have a door that’s used by authorized people but can also have visitors, you can use our intercoms and IP camera systems to control the door. You can manually control entry from your computer.

For example, the intercom system notifies you with an audible alert, video pops into a video window on your desktop so you can talk to the person at the door and then let them in.

There are a number of different intercom solutions depending on your exact requirements. More
