The leading wireless ID vendor Axcess International has recently introduced its physical security system that is able to verify in real time whether a person in a facility is in possession of the right ID and whether they are authorized to be present in a particular place.
This new solution will empower the security systems of Axcess to offer constant and total coverage of the facility round the clock. While a physical barrier for intrusion or a sensor for detection was previously offered by physical security systems, these systems were unable to verify the security authorization of personnel throughout the facility.
The new internal security feature makes it possible to monitor the ID badges electronically in real time for alerting whether an employee, visitor or an intruder is not authorized to be present in any location in the facility during any part of the day. The Dot MicroWireless Credentials, another name for the Axcess ID badges, can replace the manual enabled ID access control cards. These badges can be used for a range of new applications like automatic access control, visitor tracking, intrusion detection, asset loss prevention and emergency evacuation accounting. They can interoperate with most access control infrastructures that are in use world over, rendering it easy to reinforce current security systems with additional capabilities. This product can fit in easily into most vertical industries world over for supporting the world-wide electronic access control market that is worth $10 billion.
The current intrusion detection solutions function only during off-hours when any presence sensed triggers an alarm. On the other hand, the Axcess system checks personnel for location authorization and proper ID during office hours. This capability was tested through a high profile implementation in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. During this test, the system was able to detect successfully personnel who crossed painted boundary lines denoting entry into the secure zone, in JFK International Airport’s high-security bonded warehouse. This system validated their IDs autonomously to ascertain their authorization in the secure area, while the customary security detection systems detected the personnel entering the zone.
The wireless ID badges have a battery and wireless transceivers implanted in them and are the same size as customary badges. By transmitting dependable messages around the facility they are capable of lasting for many years. To facilitate autonomous tracking of internal intrusions, these wireless IDs are correlated electronically to standard security industry devices using the business intelligence rules of Functional Linkage already defined in the system. Alerts related to improper functioning are transmitted via standard industry alarm or SMS text or email through the security system.
The Dot Wireless Credentials is based on the patented MicroWireless technology of Axcess. Along with the AxcessView software it comprises a system for transforming current access control systems into enhanced workforce management systems easily. Using automated identity oriented information, the Dot Wireless Credentials solution reinforces current access control system software.
