Combined With Non-host Dependant, Fully Distributed Processing Controllers, WinDSX Provides Total Access Control

Product Profile

WinDSX is a powerful access control and system monitoring application that harnesses the power of the Windows XP, Vista, and 7 Professional™ operating systems. WinDSX combines point monitoring and access control with Photo ID Badging, Time and Attendance, Alarm Graphics, DVR/NVR Integration, Elevator Control, Alarm Email/Text Message Notification, Threat Level Management, HazMat / Emergency Lockdown, and FIPS/TWIC card compatibility.

WinDSX can support your access control needs from a single PC or multi-user Local Area Network to an enterprise solution with SQL Server as the database engine. The system utilizes TCP/IP network communications to provide user interaction and real time monitoring to the workstation PC's located anywhere on the LAN or WAN. Password protection allows for operator specific capabilities at each workstation.

There are two Editions of Software. WinDSX comes standard with a Microsoft Access database engine. WinDSX SQL is designed to work with Microsoft SQL Server as the database engine. Both editions of WinDSX have similar features and capabilities. Microsoft SQL Server is user supplied.

WinDSX implements Point and Click operation with hierarchical tree views and pop up menus for ease of use. I/O monitoring and control is achieved through animated icons that depict the real time status of each input or output. I/O points can also be assigned to an Override Group to allow for multiple inputs and outputs to be monitored and controlled from a single icon.

Scheduled Overrides can be assigned to individual Inputs and Outputs as well as Override Groups. These schedules allow operators to quickly assign time and date sensitive instructions determining the open/secure status of outputs and the armed state of inputs.
