The Entry panel is a robust door entry panel incorporating both door entry and access control functions. It is powered using power over Ethernet (PoE) and communicates with the other elements of the system using IPv6, providing ‘plug and play’ installation. Each panel is associated with a Entry control unit which is the interface to the door hardware.
The panel is equipped with a keypad and a proximity token reader. A resident can use either the keypad or a token to gain entry. Installers gain access to the menu options using an engineer code or an engineer token.
Net2 software is used to administer the access control functions.
Decide how the units are to be connected. You can either run your own wired network or (with the owner’s permission) share the buildings existing data network. If using the owners network, the system uses IPv6 protocol and PoE (Power over Ethernet) so the network must support this switch type.
Entry components simply interconnect using Cat5 or standard RJ45 terminated patch cables. Entry can also utilise existing network infrastructure for simple installation. PoE technology runs power and data along the same cable to avoid the need for separate power supplies.
The surface mount version of this panel enables installation of the unit directly on the surface of the wall so that it is protruding and 100% exposed. For multiple panel entrances, more than one panel can be associated with an ACU.
A secondary IP camera can also be installed and integrated with the Entry system to allow extra security in areas of restricted visibility. This provides flexibility with the option to switch between the two cameras on the Entry Monitor.
A visitor initiates a video call via the bell button on the external panel. Visitor access can be granted via the Entry monitor, which features an intuitive touchscreen user interface. The internal monitor can be used via either the handset for private calls or in hands free mode.
When connected to Net2, access to the building can be gained by using a PIN, Code and/or proximity token (including MIFARE® and Paxton tokens).
