Beyond Access Control: AccessNsite By American Direct

To secure buildings, assets, and human life, you need access control: next-generation software and best-of-breed hardware, the most advanced mechanical and electrical components, and total integration in every facet of the door opening. Ultimately, though, you need more than just “access control.” When American Direct acquired AccessNsite in 2016, it became the first company in the industry to combine Division 8 (Openings) and Division 28 (Electronic Safety and Security) and design, source, install, monitor, and maintain every facet of a building’s openings. It’s more than just “access control”—it is a totally integrated safety and security solution at the door opening.

American Direct has invested aggressively in AccessNsite with four enhancement updates, and keeps a regular schedule of updates based upon market demands and technology innovation. And recently, AccessNsite announced two new products due out in early December 2017: a VMS VideoIP system, and a new RDS-2 server to bolster the 8/28 product and service offering. This commitment to offering a top-of-the-line software along with American Direct’s door and hardware products, services, and expertise is what sets American Direct apart in the industry.
