American Direct is excited to share some recent news from American Access and Integration, LLC, an affiliate of American Direct. A software update to their next generation access control software, AccessNsite® is now available. AccessNsite® delivers innovative software and best-of-breed hardware to serve the growing needs of the rapidly changing security market. It is a cross-platform (Windows, Linux) and database-independent modular access control solution that can protect any facility, large or small.
Update 7.9.6. includes the following significant enhancements:
Increased Max Card Formats – The maximum number of card formats that can be defined per controller has been increased from 8 to 16.
Unlock Schedules On Access Points – Define a schedule directly on an access point for changing its mode (Disabled, Unlocked, Locked, Facility Code Only, Card Only, PIN Only, Card & PIN, Card or PIN).
LifeSafety Power Hardware Wizard – For previously purchased LifeSafety Power enclosure kits, now select the kit from within our hardware wizard to automatically build the hardware tree to match the configuration of the kit. This makes commissioning a system faster, with minimal manual data entry.
Web Client Photo Capture – Photos can now be captured into a personnel record from the Web Client using a webcam.
Web Client Badge Printing – Badges can be printed to a badge printer from the Web Client.
March VMS Integration – A tight integration has been written to the March Networks Video Management Software (VMS). This integration applies to the Command Lite, Command Professional, and Command Enterprise versions. It allows demand monitoring of video from a hardware tree or map, or continuous viewing from a camera grid and provides for video pop-up on event or alarm with pre- and post-event clips.
Event Streaming – Now with the ability to output event data in real time to other systems, this feature allows event and alarm data to be routed to other software systems, which could include critical items such as alarms, or simple information such as usage data. Powerful filters can reduce the total data possible to only what is needed.
Byron Whetstone, American Direct President said, “These software enhancements further demonstrate our investment in bringing to market an innovative way of offering a full-service solution for total security integration. With our nationwide footprint and expertise in designing, building, and managing any door opening project, we offer a full-service solution from the physical door, frame, and locking devices to top-of-the-line electronic access control."
In January of this year, American Direct announced the acquisition of the security division of Quintron Systems, Inc., which included AccessNsite®, their electronic access control brand.
