Nedap introduces the new AEOS Blue hardware line. This new generation of controllers builds on the successful AEOS Security Management Platform, the first software-based platform for security management. While other security manufacturers pursue growth through acquisitions, Nedap maintains its focus on ongoing investment in this platform. Now on the sixth generation of controller, with AEOS Blue Nedap once again unlocks a new realm of software-driven functionality. The AEOS Blue has the simplicity and elegance you expect, and will also deliver cost savings for both the installer and the customer.
With AEOS Blue, Nedap launches an energy-efficient, powerful hardware line consisting of door controller, door interface and power, for a self-contained solution that can handle the simplest to the most complex security needs. Aside from the hardware, another new feature of the AEOS Blue is the completely redesigned and simplified software licensing model, which makes the price of AEOS Blue more competitive than ever for its range of functionalities, such as the control of air locks and revolving gates. The new AEOS Blue software licensing model makes the calculation and design of security systems perfect and correct every time.
Most powerful controller in security market
Once installed, additional security features can be added to the AEOS Blue at any time. For example, the comprehensive selection of AEOS software components allow secure doors to be customised easily for holding areas and camera surveillance. And no additional investments in new access control hardware are required: Nedap has also made the most powerful controller in the security industry compatible with PoE+. Even power is provided through the existing network infrastructure, saving on installation costs and eliminating the need for installation of separate power feeds.
“Nedap believes that the best security systems are designed as IT systems. That’s why 15 years ago, we decided to separate software and hardware on the controller. That means we can not only define the functionality of the hardware through the software, but can also easily adapt that functionality to changing requirements and needs. Just like you would expect from your computer,” says Albert Dercksen, Manager Research & Development of Nedap. “Of course, the hardware determines how much you can get out of your software. Our new cost-effective hardware line, AEOS Blue, puts all the functionality of the AEOS software in your hands.”
