DAQ Electronics enters ISC West New Products Showcase

EntroWatch access control system entered in annual SIA awards program recognizing new and innovative security products


PISCATAWAY, NJ - February 28, 2013 - DAQ Electronics, a leading manufacturer of high-end security software and equipment for the U.S. DoD, now enters the commercial market with the EntroWatch access control system. As part of the commercial launch, EntroWatch has been entered in the 2013 New Product Showcase at ISC West.

 Coupled with EntroStar™, the world's first PoE/PoE+ native BACnet™ access control panel, EntroWatch software offers simplified configuration and installation with the ability to issue credentials within five minutes of completing physical wiring. In addition, EntroWatch provides interoperability with other BACnet compliant building systems and devices, such as Lighting Controls; HVAC; Energy Management; and Life Safety, allowing for seamless integration and enhanced return on investment. This use of an open protocol allows the system designer, installer, operator, and facility owner to maximize the operating efficiency of their systems resulting in increased security, occupant comfort, and reduced operating costs.

 With modules for access, display, and video management along with an integrated photo ID badging suite, EntroWatch provides an intuitive, feature-rich experience incorporating the latest real-time, tile-based user interface. All relevant information can be viewed on a single screen with simple navigation using a mouse or touch-screen.

 EntroStar provides installers with a unique visual troubleshooting and status indication system eliminating the need for special tools, meters, or PC interface. When used with PoE+, EntroStar is capable of providing all local power required for most magnetic locks, strikes, and readers. This leads to fewer installation hours and components required, while providing expanded system integration capabilities at significantly lower costs than other systems on the market.
