Two COSEC DOOR PVRs are installed at their main entrances and integrated with the turnstile. For physically challenged people, Matrix has installed RFID card based door controller on the third gate to provide easy access for them.

To meet the client’s software requirement in an innovative way, Matrix has integrated COSEC CENTRA with their KRS software using web API.
