Ethernet based biometric access control.

TSSI Systems : 21 May, 2007  (New Product)
Dual reader door controller benefits from biometric technology preventing access by impersonation.
TSSI Systems launches the RC-04i, a state-of-the-art Ethernet based two-reader door controller. Due for demonstration at this year's IFSEC, the RC-04i enable installers to implement biometric security into the end users existing enGuardPro access control infrastructures without having to hardwire cabling into walls, dramatically reducing costs.

The RC-04i is a TCP/IP enabled device, which allows businesses to incorporate a variety of reader technologies including biometrics. The RC-04i utilises the existing LAN/WAN infrastructure to communicate events back to the administrators PC.

Where structured cabling between a controller and PC is not possible, the RC-04i wireless variant will support installers by assisting communication back to a PC. A practical solution for a gatehouse at the end of a driveway that needs to communicate with the host PC without cabling.

The necessity for tighter access control security is underestimated according to the findings of a recent study by TSSI. 10 per cent had misused ID and access control systems by impersonating someone else or had assisted someone else to do so. A further 35 per cent said they would think nothing of counteracting their workplace security by lending or borrowing a work pass if they or a colleague had forgotten theirs. These figures are expected to decrease as biometric security gains ubiquity.

Stewart Hefferman, COO, TSSI said: "It is clear that either through deliberate dishonesty, or in a misguided effort to be helpful to colleagues, end-users are regularly overriding access control systems. It is essential that companies implement systems to close these security weaknesses. Biometric security is often associated with expensive MI5 style highly confidential applications or high end devices but is now affordable enough for British businesses to look towards biometrics to stamp out such security breaches."

The RC-04i has a battery-backed configuration therefore delivering sound business continuity in the event of a power surge. Managing up to 22,000 cardholders and two readers, the control unit is particularly well suited to large corporations where security is critical and offices are geographically dispersed. The superior TCP/IP access control unit allows configuration and control of up to two doors. The unit can also be added to an existing enGuard Pro access control system.
