The seamless interface into legacy security access control systems is accomplished using the industry standard Wiegand data interface from the RFID receiver to the security panel. The existing security system determines if assets are authorized to enter or leave an area without triggering an alarm. A simultaneous TCP/IP network interface from the receiver makes the system a standard enterprise network application complete with intelligent middleware to process the tag data and an interface with enterprise systems such as IT and accounting application software. Asset Activator is integrated with ActiveTrac, a desktop software package provided by AXCESS which enables easy and simple tag enrollment, asset tracking and security. Optionally, customers can use AXCESS' OnlineSupervisor browser-based software solution.
AXCESS' patented ActiveTag RFID product uses small, battery powered tags (generically called "semi-active" tags) that when automatically activated, transmit a wireless message typically 30 to 100 feet to hidden palm size receivers. The receivers are connected via an industry standard interface to existing security alarm equipment or networked on the existing corporate network. Optionally, the tag system can also be used to trigger security video recording and live remote video transmission. The tags are used for a variety of other security applications including automatic personnel access to facilities, automatic vehicle access to parking areas and yards, as well as special purpose sensing. Automatic email alerting and paging is offered for rapid response to security incidents.
