PAC & GDX, providers of access control and door entry solutions, are showcasing the range and depth of their innovative technology on Stand IF2930 at IFSEC International 2019. From a single door installation to a fully integrated network based system, the company’s extensive portfolio provides unbeatable reliability and robust functionality, at a price point that enables installation in a diverse range of residential and commercial buildings. In order to provide integrators and end users with the highest level of flexibility and ease of operation, PAC & GDX have joined forces with STid, the principal manufacturer of instinctive, contactless security technologies. NFC based readers By incorporating STid’s Bluetooth and NFC based readers with PAC or GDX controllers, a mobile phone can be used to gain access. To enjoy all the benefits of a handsfree option, all an individual has to do is tap their phone twice and the Bluetooth signal is sent to the reader to unlock a door. By downloading the STid app a virtual credential can be configured in a smartphone wallet By downloading the STid app a virtual credential can be configured in a smartphone wallet, allowing the user to have multiple virtual ‘keys’ for different areas or sites. The system can also be configured to use proximity based near field communication (NFC) instead of Bluetooth, or a combination of the two. Furthermore, it is available with a PAC or PAC 64 output and, when using a PAC 512 or PAC 212 access controller, two readers can be connected to provide true read in/out from a single channel. Access control systems Also on display is the PAC Residential Cloud solution, which leads the way in allowing organizations to remotely manage and monitor their access control systems in a secure, modern and cloud based environment. Users can address technical issues, deal with key fob management, view status, set and unset a system, and gain access to an event log more easily than ever before – all from a remote location. Various site communication options are available including PSTN, GSM and GPRS and it can be configured and managed via a smartphone, tablet or PC. At IFSEC PAC is demonstrating how Residential Cloud can be integrated with 3xLOGIC cameras to provide a fully hosted solution, which is perfect for the residential sector. This system allows designated personnel to be notified if, for example, a door is forced or left open. Network switches By sending an alarm to the camera, it starts to record and transmits images to a mobile device via a push notification. This allows the system to provide vital information that elicits a fast response and immediate action. With an optional camera, a backlight LED to provide clear visitor images in low light levels Sharing the limelight with STid and Residential Cloud is GDX7 – a next generation IP based door entry system that offers integrated access control for up to 1,000 keyholders using a standard two-core cable. With an optional camera, a backlight LED to provide clear visitor images in low light levels, and an inbuilt reader, GDX7 has an incredibly high level of functionality and enables integrators to install an IP system without being skilled in IT or familiar with network switches. Identification devices The GDX7 door entry panel can be provided with multiple button options, including those that meet the requirements of the Equality Act, and its readers and identification devices have also been approved by Secured by Design – a police service initiative that aims to improve the security of buildings. Already a huge success, GDX7 has a new seven-inch apartment station and a new landing card, which enables it to provide up to 96 handset connections. It too has recently been augmented with STid integration providing property owners, engineers or contractors with a flexible way of gaining access to remote properties. “PAC & GDX are driven by constant innovation and the desire to push the boundaries of what’s possible with access control,” commented David Hughes, the company’s global product manager. “We also pride ourselves on our customer service and technical support, which includes the provision of a new online training platform that offers a great way to get the most out our products.”
DICE Corporation announced the launch of an all new Video Verification App at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) in Indianapolis last week. The Video Verification App is a completely mobile browser-based tool used in conjunction with DICE’s CloudEye cloud video recording solution. If an event triggered by an alarm system occurs, app users have more control of how alarm center interaction is handled by viewing live video surveillance and other essential account information. Video Verification App The app process is simple. When an alarm is tripped, users receive an immediate notification through SMS text messages, simplifying the dispatch process and giving customers the information, they need to know to proceed. Users are then able to view live streams, determine if the alarm should be dispatched or canceled, and also speak to an operator for further assistance. Additional camera locations can also be selected from a dropdown menu to provide a well-rounded view of the premises and aid the customer in determining the best course of action. The Video Verification App can be used with most monitoring software that supports the product’s APIs Compatibility is also far-reaching with this solution. The Video Verification App is capable of being used with most monitoring software that supports the product’s APIs, including DICE’s Matrix Monitoring. Giving users more options and accessibility, central stations are able to reduce expenses from handling low priority alarms, improve operator efficiency, and encourage meaningful customer engagement through enhanced end-user communication. Compatible with video monitoring software “With over 75 percent of Americans now owning smartphones, consumers are more engaged and accessible than ever before,” said DICE Corporation President and CEO, Cliff Dice. “Advancements in new technology are opening up exciting ways to keep users connected while also offering central stations significant opportunity for growth while reducing expenses.” In addition to launching the app at ESX, the new technology also received an Innovation Award for mobile apps. “We’re pleased to bring home an award and be recognized by our peers for developing outstanding products that drive the electronic security and life safety industries,” Dice said. “By offering new products like the Video Verification App and CloudEye cloud video recording solutions, we’re cementing our reputation as one of the leading developers of video surveillance solutions for the alarm industry and beyond.”
