PROTECH USA to introduce TDSi Access Control at GSX Orlando

Sept. 10, 2021
TDSi provides a fully integrated access control and security solution

PROTECH, the North American subsidiary of VITAPROTECH of France, will announce the introduction of its Group sister company, TDSi of the UK, into the US access control market at GSX 2021 in Orlando. TDSi provides a fully integrated access control and security solution that is both cost effective for customers and drives margin generation for business.

The powerful GARDiS hardware and software ecosystem from TDSi will roll out in North America in 2022 delivering an exciting new option in access control solutions. 

TDSi offers a full range of door controllers, card and credential readers – all driven through the powerful GARDiS web-based access control software platform.

“The features and functionality of GARDiS deliver peace of mind for customers through its intuitive and easy to set-up and install hardware and software”, explains John Davies, Managing Director of TDSi. “Through reduced installation time and cost per door, we are able to drive profit and productivity improvements for any business.”

Davies added that the GARDiS software can cover thousands of doors across multiple sites and with the REST API, integration to leading VMS and PSIM providers is made easy. With the option of also using a web browser-based software embedded on the controllers, one can also protect single sites of up to 44 doors and integrate to wireless handle sets from SimonsVoss and ASSA ABLOY without the need to deploy the On-premise or Cloud deployable GARDiS software

“This is yet one more piece in physical security that PROTECH can soon offer its North American customer base to provide an end-to-end solution in perimeter protection,” said Larry Thomas, COO, PROTECH. “We look forward to introducing it with our existing customer base in the coming months and to the market in 2022.”
