UK Access Control Manufacturer, Controlsoft, has launched its new Web-based system called Controlsoft iWeb which simplifies installation, operation and maintenance for smaller sites.
This entry level solution from Controlsoft, gives users all the benefits of traditional access control such as helping secure doors, managing employee access and sites remotely and generating reports easily.
The new Controlsoft iWeb solution is designed to make security access control easier and more affordable for smaller businesses. It features a flexible, Web-based design that helps users save time and money by reducing or eliminating costs and oversight associated with PC-based systems, by eliminating the expense of servers and software licences. Because of its Web browser interface, multiple users can manage the system from any location and avoid potential hardware issues, including system lock-ups and virus attacks. The embedded Web server gives users full control to monitor and view live events in real-time while allowing users to manually control access areas such as doors and card readers.
Controlsoft’s iWeb solution also enables smaller facilities to leverage the same reliable access control features traditionally available to larger enterprises by simplifying installation procedures, maintenance and operational requirements. For example, Controlsoft’s iWeb keeps installation simple and less costly with Ethernet (TCPIP) capability, which can tap into existing infrastructure and wiring. Other installation benefits include an estimated start-up time of 20 minutes for a single door, common application system.
“It does not matter whether you are the facilities manager of a large warehouse or manage a petrol station, you want to ensure the security and safety of your property, employees and customers,” said Ben Kent, access control product manager, Controlsoft Security Group. “The Controlsoft iWeb system allows a business of any size to buy the level of access control it requires and get it up and running quickly and cost effectively. The system is ideal as an entry-level solution, but it is also flexible enough to grow with your business.”
While Controlsoft’s iWeb has been designed for the entry level market, its scalability allows users to scale up as their business grows and protect up to 32 doors per site using a single Web interface. Controlsoft users looking to protect facilities with thousands of doors at multiple sites can take advantage of Controlsoft’s powerful Professional access control security system.
