Identity Credentialing for Automatic Intruder Detection

Axcess International : 06 May, 2010  (New Product)
Axcess International introduces Wireless ID to enable companies to detect unauthorised personnel on site or in certain zones in real time on occupied premises
Identity Credentialing for Automatic Intruder Detection
Axcess International has announced the first of its kind physical security solution for automatically determining in real time if a person is carrying a proper ID and is authorized to be in a given place. This announcement makes it possible for Axcess' security systems to provide complete, constant coverage of a facility day and night. Until now, physical security systems have provided a physical barrier to intrusion and/or a sensor for detection but have been unable to automatically determine a person's security authorization throughout a facility. This internal security capability means ID badges can be electronically monitored in real time to alert if a visitor, intruder or employee is improperly in any part of a facility at any time of day. By replacing manual ID access control cards with Axcess' ID badges, called Dot MicroWireless Credentials, a portfolio of new applications is made available including: automatic access control, asset loss prevention, visitor tracking, emergency evacuation accounting and now intrusion detection. Axcess' ID badges are interoperable with the vast majority of access control system infrastructures installed worldwide, making it easy to augment the existing system for the new capabilities. The product drops easily into virtually any vertical industry worldwide in support of the $10 billion global electronic access control market.

Typical intrusion detection systems work only during off-hours when any presence detected triggers an alarm. With the Axcess system, personnel are checked during operational hours for a proper ID and location authorization. The capability was proven-in in a high profile implementation with the US Department of Homeland Security. In a high security bonded warehouse at JFK International Airport, the system successfully detected personnel crossing painted boundary lines, indicating movement into the secure zone. As personnel entering the zone were detected using traditional security detection devices, Axcess' system autonomously validated their IDs for authorization to be in the secure area.

"Our Dot MicroWireless Credentials have been proven to add significant value in physical security," commented Ben Donohue, Vice President of Business Development at Axcess International. "Until now, ID badges have only been useful for a visual validation, which is subject to gross human error. We've introduced the first automated method of monitoring authorized movement throughout a facility. Our MicroWireless Credentials are compatible with existing access control systems, which makes the upgrade decision much easier."

The wireless ID badges are the same size as traditional badges yet have wireless transceivers and a battery embedded inside them. The automatically activated devices have been proven to last years, sending short reliable messages around the local facility. For autonomous internal intrusion monitoring, the wireless IDs are electronically correlated to standard security industry presence detection devices using "Functional Linkage" business intelligence rules defined in the system. Alerts for improper positioning are sent via email or SMS text or standard industry alarm through the security system.

Dot Wireless Credentials, based on Axcess' patented MicroWireless technology, together with AxcessView software comprise a system that enables existing access control systems to be expanded easily into advanced workforce management solutions. Dot solutions also augment existing access control software with automated identity-related information. Dot provides local position determination, tracking, sensing and control capabilities, leveraging MicroWireless technologies to implement a unique Control Point Location System (CPLS) architecture. Axcess systems are sold through distributor, dealer and integrator channels worldwide.

The most implemented applications include personnel access control, emergency evacuation, process automation, compliance reporting, productivity metering, asset protection via custodianship assignments, advanced workforce management, and contractor and visitor time and attendance. The Axcess MicroWireless architecture is designed specifically for local area security, safety and productivity applications while other technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or ZigBee are poorly suited due to size, cost or power consumption limitations. MicroWireless ID badge technology is viewed as the next generation in access control and business credentials.
