Keyscan releases K-DSC Software Module

K-DSC module integrates System VII with a DSC Power Series intrusion panel in a single software application


Whitby, Ontario, May 28, 2009 – Keyscan today announced that has launched its latest addition to the System VII stable of software modules - the K-DSC.

Keyscan’s K-DSC module integrates System VII with a DSC Power Series intrusion panel in a single software application. End-users now have the convenience of monitoring and controlling both access and intrusion systems from one application. No need to enter cryptic codes to add or modify users in the intrusion panel. The K-DSC provides a wide range of functionality, like adding, modifying, or deleting individual DSC pass codes, actively logging all DSC panel activity, and running reports on the entire building for both access activity and DSC panel activity.

The K-DSC provides real-time display of the DSC system, along with zone and partition status. And with System VII’s Present3 reader control, assigned users can arm and disarm specific partitions or the full intrusion system from any designated reader. It adds a flexible dimension in arming and disarming the intrusion system to accommodate people and irregular schedules. If a user-defined DSC event is triggered, the Keyscan software can automatically generate an email alarm notification so management is quickly informed of a system breach and can respond accordingly. All this and more. Keyscan’s K-DSC software module combines the power of access control and intrusion into one convenient software package.

The K-DSC module requires an optional DSC IT-100 module which is available through a DSC hardware supplier.
