With security threats on the rise, LILIN Americas is answering the call by introducing an advanced yet easy-to-install Access Control System for monitoring entry to a building, resulting in a safer environment for personnel and assets. When integrated with other platforms such as IP cameras, fire alarms, and sensors, the system provides a layered security approach that significantly enhances peace-of-mind and acts as a deterrent for theft and vandalism.

"The LILIN Access Control System is a single, streamlined and secure solution that can be controlled remotely and customized to individual requirements, from the simple to the most challenging," said Joe Cook, Vice President and General Manager of LILIN Americas.

It tracks when employees enter and exit a building, creating an audit trail of data that can be analyzed for actionable insights"

"Besides keeping intruders out, it tracks when employees enter and exit a building, creating an audit trail of data that can be analyzed for actionable insights. It also empowers administrators to restrict the locations each employee can enter, so they can set levels of security that balance safety and convenience."

Reduces installation time

Designed to work seamlessly together, the building blocks of the LILIN Access Control System are:

  • TCP/IP Single Door RFID Card Reader and PIN Controller (AR2015)
  • PoE Relay Box (ARR2010E)
  • TCP/IP Multi- and Single-door Control Panels (AC1082, ACW10120)
  • AC/DC Power Supply (PMH-PSU330)
  • LILIN Access Control Software

Various combinations of the hardware platform are installed depending on the three available configurations – Standalone mode, Standalone with PoE mode, or Mixed mode. By using only what hardware they need, LILIN customers can significantly reduce installation time and total cost of ownership, while achieving operational efficiencies and gaining greater visibility into their security environment.

Gateway to unified access control

Standalone and Standalone with PoE modes are targeted primarily at small commercial and select residential applications, while Mixed mode is recommended for enterprise-level deployments with Wiegand readers and integrates with LILIN's advanced Navigator series recording solutions.

The software's multi-level mapping feature lets users monitor up to three live cameras at each intrusion area

The web-based Access Control software provides a gateway to unified access control, enabling administrators to manage all of their security devices on a single interface. For example, the software's multi-level mapping feature lets users monitor up to three live cameras at each intrusion area, while logging the event in real time. If an alarm event occurs, the administrator is sent an e-mail notification and the software brings up live video on the screen for viewing.

Capacity to store 20,000 card holders

LILIN Access Control Software enables logged events to be fully searchable for later analysis, a process that is made easier by the software's ability to display individual logs with a snapshot of the person involved and employee information, if available, along with recorded surveillance video. Tampering with a card reader, forcing open a door, insufficient permissions, or propping open a door for an extended period of time are all events that would set off an alarm.

Scalability of an access control system allows it to handle growing security concerns, whether it is hiring more employees or building an addition to a home. The LILIN system has the capacity to store up to 20,000 card holders and 65,500 events with support for a maximum of 1000 doors with three cameras per door. It also features high assurance Anti-Passback protection to prevent cardholders from double entering or exiting a door with a single card, along with a duress code to input for opening a door and sending an alarm.

How Does Audio Enhance Security System Performance?
How Does Audio Enhance Security System Performance?

Video is widely embraced as an essential element of physical security systems. However, surveillance footage is often recorded without sound, even though many cameras are capable of capturing audio as well as video. Beyond the capabilities of cameras, there is a range of other audio products on the market that can improve system performance and/or expand capabilities (e.g., gunshot detection.) We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: How does audio enhance the performance of security and/or video systems? 

What Are The Mainstream Uses For Thermal Cameras?
What Are The Mainstream Uses For Thermal Cameras?

The high cost of thermal imaging cameras historically made their use more likely in specialized law enforcement and military applications. However, lower pricing of thermal imaging technologies has opened up a new and expanding market for thermal cameras in the mainstream. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What are the new opportunities for thermal cameras in mainstream physical security?

Identiv Unveils Cloud Access Control and Frictionless Mobile Solution
Identiv Unveils Cloud Access Control and Frictionless Mobile Solution

Even though ISC West 2020 was canceled, many of the product introductions planned for the trade show still happened. For example, physical security and secure identification company Identiv introduced the Hirsch Velocity Cirrus and MobilisID. Hirsch Velocity Cirrus is a cloud-based Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) solution. It is an optimal solution for both end-users and integrators, with lower upfront costs, reduced maintenance, enhanced portability, and the future-proof assurance of automatic security updates and feature sets. Smart mobile physical access control solution Identiv’s MobilisID is a smart mobile physical access control solution that uses Bluetooth and capacitive technologies to allow frictionless access to a controlled environment without the need to present a credential. We caught up with Jason Spielfogel, Identiv’s Director of Product Management, to discuss the new products and other topics. Q: How is Identiv positioned in the market as a whole? What philosophy drives your product offerings? What vertical markets do you target? Every customer needs every one of these components Spielfogel: Identiv provides a total solution. Our platforms provide access control hardware and software, video surveillance and analytics, door access readers, and ID credentials, both cards and mobile, for a variety of vertical markets: Federal government, state, local and education government agencies (SLED), healthcare, schools, banks/financial services, retail, airports and transportation, and infrastructure. Every customer needs every one of these components in every physical security deployment, and we ensure that all parts are working together at all times, even as technology continues to evolve. With that said, our philosophy is very customer-centric, and we position ourselves as a trusted partner. Our products and technology platform always strive to reflect and anticipate the environment our customers are facing, both in terms of technical requirements and functional capabilities. Q: How does the MobilisID system eliminate "friction?" Spielfogel: Identiv’s MobilisID eliminates the “friction” of access control by forgiving the user from presenting a physical credential to the reader. A simple wave of their hand over the MobilisID reader establishes a connection, and the reader reads their mobile device’s credential from the MobilisID app.  No badge or access card to read, and no contact with the reader, makes this a frictionless access control experience. Administrative friction is also eliminated because there is no physical credential to issue or withdraw; it’s all done via the MobilisID Manager. Q: Discuss the advantages of Bluetooth over competing technologies. Bluetooth offers a blend of reliability and specificity Spielfogel: There are two primary competing technologies: WiFi and Near Field Communication (NFC). The problem with WiFi is that it’s not location-specific. In other words, the WiFi router can’t tell which door the user is near. NFC has the opposite problem in that it’s impossible to get credential reads unless the phone is presented within an inch or two of the reader. Bluetooth offers a blend of reliability and specificity to create frictionless access. Q: "Touchless" has always been a big selling point. Doesn't the coronavirus improve the outlook for these systems even more? Spielfogel: The coronavirus certainly highlights the value of frictionless access. But the vast majority of access systems today use proximity which was already touchless. But for systems using touchpads or contact-based credentialing, certainly frictionless is offering some alternatives that would help keep employees and visitors safer in the current climate. Q: How else might the current pandemic change the security market forever (i.e., more teleworking?) Spielfogel: Permanent changes are not likely, but it does force security directors to rethink how their employees interact physically with systems for both physical and logical access. As a result, we might see accelerated adoption of some emerging technologies, such as greater use of mobile logical access solutions, as well as frictionless physical access control. We’ve already seen an uptick in our smart card reader and token line and our Thursby enterprise and personal mobility offering during the coronavirus pandemic. Q: There are a lot of cloud systems in the access control space. How is your Cirrus cloud product different? Velocity already has all those features Spielfogel: Cirrus is different from many others in that it’s built on one of the most mature, feature-rich, secure physical access solutions available today – Hirsch hardware and Velocity Software. While many competitors are scrambling to add features to their relatively new ACaaS platforms, Velocity already has all those features. While they are building up their encryption capabilities and cybersecurity testing, we’ve already been doing that for two decades. We certainly have some more development ahead of us for Cirrus, but most of it is just surfacing features we already have into the Cirrus interface. Q: How do you guide customers as their needs change? Spielfogel: Whether users want solutions that are on-prem, in the cloud, or anything in between, Identiv’s full architecture ensures that customers can adopt and migrate to new solutions as they see fit. No two customers are alike, so providing the flexibility to gradually update or change systems is a real differentiator. Our competitors either want customers to jump all at once to the cloud or push to keep everything on-prem/legacy. CSOs and CISOs live in a different world: They've got it all to deal with.  We're there with them across all of it, because that's the true reality.
