LAS VEGAS — March 28, 2012 - Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, today announced that the company is the first access control manufacturer to achieve Elite Certification from ASSA ABLOY for its integration between C·CURE 9000 and the IP-enabled Wi-Fi and Power over Ethernet (PoE) locks from ASSA ABLOY Group brands SARGENT and CORBIN RUSSWIN.
The certification program is designed to provide system integrators and end users with a clear and easy way to evaluate the level of functionality and testing that has occurred on integrations between ASSA ABLOY and an access control software provider. Software House's Elite designation, the highest level, indicates that (i) users can take advantage of the full functionality of the locks, right from the C·CURE interface and (ii) the integration has been extensively tested in real-world, high-activity environments to eliminate surprises at installation. The integration of the SARGENT and CORBIN RUSSWIN IP-enabled locks into C·CURE 9000 helps security professionals expand the reach of their electronic access control system at a significantly lower cost, by utilizing existing Ethernet and Wi-Fi networks to communicate with the C·CURE 9000 server. This allows facilities to extend access control to more interior doors.
"At Software House we pride ourselves on leading the market in integrations. Our passion and commitment is to deliver integrations that help our end users save money and improve security AND to ensure these integrations are thoroughly tested in real-world conditions. Thanks to strong partnership and collaboration with ASSA ABLOY, we have achieved both objectives with this integration," said Warren Brown, Vice President of Product Management for Tyco Security Products. "Being the first to achieve Elite Certification is a powerful affirmation of the dedication and commitment that both teams have invested in this integration."
"We felt it was important to provide independent verification of integrations with our locks, as well as recognize access control partners like Software House that have gone above and beyond to offer customers the most robust feature sets," states Martin Huddart, Vice President of Electronic Technologies, ASSA ABLOY Americas. "Our ability to offer more granular information about the specific features implemented by each access control manufacturer facilitates lock selection and system design."
