Video surveillance accessories and access control


iBR9000 is the newest in a family of iButton readers designed and manufactured by Videx. Made in the U.S.A., the small and lightweight unit is ideal for use in any checkpoint application where end-users need to know who was there, and when they were there. The miniaturized data collector measures 2-3/4 inches in length, weighs less than 2 ounces, and easily fits on a key ring or in the user's pocket. The unit provides an audible tone and its LED light flashes when it reads an iButton successfully. Thanks to ample memory capacity, end-users can store at least 9,000 reads before the next download of data. The product is powered by a standard 3-volt lithium camera-style battery, good for up to a full year or 75,000 consecutive button reads. Select eInquiry #120

Tailgating Detection System

Keyscan Inc. has added a tailgating detection system (TDS) to its product solutions for access control. The TDS system uses a curtain of 32 IR sensors to determine if more than one person has passed through to a secure area on a single valid card read. The TDS triggers an audible alarm, alerting anyone in the area of the security breach, as well as activating an alarm relay that can be interfaced with an access control system. For high-security areas such as server rooms, man traps, clean rooms, and other security sensitive areas, the TDS adds an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access. Each system comes with a Keyscan reader that can be installed within the unit. Select eInquiry #121

Access Control System

Honeywell's NetAXS-123 access control system is a one-, two- or three-door system enabling Web-based access control. The system gives end-users all the benefits of traditional access control, such as helping secure doors, managing employee access and sites remotely and pulling reports easily to meet compliance requirements. Features include a flexible, Web-based design that helps users save time and money by reducing or eliminating costs and oversight associated with PC-based systems by eliminating the expense of servers and software licenses. Because of its Web interface, multiple users can manage the system from any location and avoid potential hardware issues, including system lock-ups and virus attacks. The embedded web server gives users full control to monitor and view live events in real time while allowing users to manually control access areas such as doors and card readers.
