Gallagher XtraSec From Gallagher Security Management Systems

Product Profile

This solution is ideally suited to high grade commercial sites such as financial institutions, critical infrastructure sites vital to national stability, organizations which participate in sensitive markets, or high security government sectors.

Cardax FT XtraSec provides the control system for high level electronic physical security.  At its core it integrates access control and intruder alarms.  Drawing on the XML and OPC Interfaces to enable a system-wide security solution, it is also a platform for integrating with other systems such as biometrics, DVR and intercom systems, digital intercom systems, building management systems and cardholder management systems.

Cardax FT is a completely scalable system, which includes a range of features designed to enhance site security:
  • PhotoID and Card Encoding, to enable image capture, card design, and card printing and encoding
  • Cardholder Challenge, providing the ability for operators to visually confirm the identify of a cardholder who has badged their card at a reader by comparing the cardholder image in the system against a live image from a third party system
  • Anti-passback configuration to prevent a cardholder gaining access to a zone, then passing the card out to another person for entry
  • Anti-tailgating configuration, to prevent people from following in other cardholders without presenting their own card on entry by generating an alarm when they exit.
  • Zone counting to enable live counts of the number of cardholders present in specific access Zones.
  • No Alone Zones provide the ability to configure high security areas to function in a conditional mode where at least two people must be present at all times. 

The significant advantage of the Cardax FT XtraSec system is that it provides one platform for supporting both high security and regular security (including access control) integrated on the one system.  The ability to divide or partition the system using the System Division feature facilitates the management of different areas according to each area’s security level.  Combined with operator privileges, you can control who has access to information in the system within each division, and define the functions that each operator is authorized to perform.
