Kantech streamlines scheduling and account maintenance with EntraPass v7.40

The latest version of EntraPass Security Software launches with new features developed to streamline scheduling and account maintenance for operators.

Available in EntraPass Corporate and Global Editions, operators managing premise access control can add to security capabilities by creating actions and tasks on a daily, weekly or monthly basis with the new Action Scheduler under the Operation menu. The Action Scheduler is ideal for locations where meetings can happen at sporadic times such as town halls or other types of special events. The actions are based on the door and relay behaviors such as locking and unlocking doors, arming alarm systems and toggling relays. Users can customize actions completely by combining Action Scheduler with the powerful Smartlink Task option.

EntraPass can now intuitively automatically deactivate operators that have not logged in for a pre-determined amount of days, allowing for easier account maintenance with the Operator Auto-Deactivate feature.

The latest version of EntraPass software integrates with American Dynamics Video Edge version 5.1 and now supports exacqVision version 9.0.2, bringing added control for premise security and management.

In addition, administrators who also use Kantech’s hattrix, a cloud-based access control solution utilizing EntraPass security management software, can now more easily manage account service types and view and change account statuses with color coding for easy viewing.

New Product Announcement

Kantech Launches EntraPass v7.30 with ioSmart Technology

Introducing the latest version of the Kantech EntraPass Security Software with support for Kantech’s ioSmart Card Readers and Cards, as part of an end-to-end encrypted access control solution. EntraPass v7.30 also includes integration with HID Mobile Access® for quick and easy access to doors using a mobile phone while maintaining management of credentials through EntraPass.

Along with the newly added support for the ioSmart Smart Card Readers and Cards, EntraPass v7.30 will continue to support the ioProx Card Readers and Credentials. With the mult-technology options available on ioSmart Readers, the migration from Proximity cards to smart cards is easy with Kantech. EntraPass v7.30 now supports HID Mobile Access credentialing. The integration makes it possible for users to gain access to a facility using a credential on their smartphone from a BLE-enabled HID reader. The user receives an invitation from security personnel on their smartphone and can quickly download the credential. All credentialing is managed through the EntraPass Corporate and EntraPass Global Edition software.

“The ongoing evolution of EntraPass, with the addition of our ioSmart technology, reflects our continued focus on and acknowledgement of the changing needs of our customers,” said Rajeev Dubey, Director of Distribution Product Management, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “EntraPass v7.30 is the link that puts modern, easy-to-understand and scalable access control technology into the hands of security administrators.”

This latest edition of EntraPass software offers several enhancements to the EntraPass Go, EntraPass Go Pass and EntraPass Install apps. Added to EntraPass Go, which allows remote use of the software, is a link to “auto populated fields” that assists operators by bypassing the need to filling out configuration details to start using the app. EntraPass Go Pass, the mobile credential feature, now works with Android as well as iOS devices (including Apple Watch) and supports widget use, so users can unlock doors from a widget rather than having to open an app. EntraPass Go Install has been updated with a reader driver list and the ability to switch accounts without having to log in and out. There is also a new tutorial for EntraPass Go Install with additional user information.

EntraPass v7.30 is available on Special, Corporate, and Global Editions as well as hattrix.

School Campus Enhances Perimeter Security with Complete Tyco Security Products Solution

About Queen Elizabeth Grammar School

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls High School educate students in West and South Yorkshire, England. The large campus includes about 4 buildings of varying sizes some dating back to the 16th century. A 19-person governing body and 500-person teaching and support staff work to better the education for 2,100 pupils yearly.

The Challenge

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School and Wakefield Girls’ High School, located in Yorkshire, England, wanted a completely unified security system to secure the perimeter of the campus, while minimizing investigation time and improving security operations. Additionally, they wanted cameras that produced clear images to identify people as well as a management system that was easy to use.

 

Wakefield Grammar School

The Solution

After a complete site survey and evaluation, the school selected Reflex Systems of South Yorkshire, England as their integrator.

Queen Elizabeth Grammar and Wakefield School increased its security across its five-school campus with a complete Tyco Security Products solution including:

exacqVision Kantech Onboard

“They had done quite a bit of research on everything. Once they came to us, we decided that going with the Kantech embedded software was the best decision from a future-proofing point of view,” explained Steven Ward, technical director, Reflex Systems.

BenefitsIP Camera

Improved Camera Performance

With camera performance and image quality being the two most important factors for the school, the new Illustra Pro cameras give them the opportunity to cover all entry and exit points on campus and see critical details in areas with no sunlight. The strong integration between exacqVision VMS software and Illustra cameras simplified the deployment and optimized the performance. exacqVision automatically discovers cameras and addresses in exacqVision with EasyConnect.

exacqVision EasyConnect

Reduced Hardware Expenses

exacqVision recorders with Kantech Onboard reduce the hardware expenses and amount of rack space needed with the access control system pre-loaded on the network video recorder. The recorder came pre-loaded and pre-licensed with Kantech EntraPass Corporate access control system software at no additional cost.  With the integration of access control and video into one system, they were able to improve response time to critical alarms and events. With exacqVision CameraLinks, school operators can quickly access the most needed commands from live view and further search video evidence associated with entry and exit points.

“The installation went absolutely seamlessly. We prewired extra IT points where cameras were going to be and when it came time to connect everything to the network, they were snapped in and up and working right away. It was a great experience.”

Kantech EntraPass 7.0 Integrates With ASSA ABLOY Aperio Wireless Locks

EntraPass Security Software integrates with ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless lock technology giving you the flexibility to expand your access control system to almost every opening in your facility. These locks become part of the EntraPass security software ecosystem and can be managed from the EntraPass interface for a unified security management experience. This means that locks can be part of the events, reports, maps, and more that are core to the everyday security management with EntraPass software.

Assa Abloy

The access control decisions on these locks are made by the state-of-the-art and reliable Kantech KT-1-M and KT-400 controllers. The Aperio wireless locks on these controllers can be added without taking the current door ports away, meaning the wireless locks can be added to the controllers incrementally simply by purchasing the appropriate software license. The locks communicate wirelessly with the Aperio hub which is hard-wired to the Kantech controller. The wireless communication between the hub and the locks is protected with 128-bit AES encryption for the most secure communication. Online transactions mean that EntraPass is updated in real-time, providing a high level of control and visibility of door actions.

With no need for additional wiring, ASSA ABLOY Aperio locks can be installed or retrofitted at existing facilities with little or no operational disruption. The locks come in a variety of form factors that accommodate a wide range of interior environments including mortise, cylindrical, and exit devices for standard doors and an electronic cylinder that replaces a traditional mechanical keyed cylinder. Aperio technology is also available in a wireless cabinet lock format which can be used for cabinets, lockers, and drawers. This is ideal in healthcare facilities for storing equipment, drugs, patient files, and valuables. And, there’s even a model for server racks which greatly improves the monitoring and security level of data centers.

  • Real-time communication with Kantech KT-1-M and KT-400 door controllers using the ASSA ABLOY Aperio hub, and EntraPass security software
  • Convenient and easy to integrate with new and existing EntraPass installations
  • Utilizes low-power IEEE 802.15.4 and secure 128-bit AES encrypted wireless communication between the Aperio lock and hub
  • Real-time reporting such as card access transactions, door status, low battery and tamper alarm monitoring
  • Locks built on a robust Grade 1 mechanical platform for durability

Tyco Security Products Delivers Wireless Lock Integration and Connected Partner Program with Kantech EntraPass 7.0

Tyco Security Products introduces the latest version of its EntraPass Security Software from Kantech with integration to ASSA ABLOY Aperio®Wireless Lock Technology for deeper door density and reduction of wiring costs as well as a new Connected Partner Program for integration with third-party partner technologies for a more holistic solution.


smKantech-Plus_EntraPass_Collage_p3_07_na_v

EntraPass’ integration with ASSA ABLOY Aperio Wireless Lock Technology provides customers an affordable way to bring the flexibility of wireless locks to any interior door in a facility including cabinets, drawers and server racks with little to no operational disruption. The Aperio locks become part of the EntraPass security software eco-system and can be managed from the EntraPass interface for a unified security management experience. The access control decisions on these locks will continue to be made by the state-of-the-art and reliable Kantech controllers. The wireless locks are ideal in settings such as universities, pharmacies, hospitals, human resources departments, data centers and any other interior door where electronic access control was previously cost prohibitive.

In addition, Kantech joins the Connected Partner Program from Tyco Security Products allowing third-party integrations to be developed using the Kantech software development kit (SDK). This allows the partner technologies to interact with EntraPass and thereby obtaining pertinent information such as card holders and events directly from EntraPass.

“Flexibility and affordability with a world class user experience have been the cornerstones of Kantech solutions for many years and the focal points of EntraPass 7.0,” said Rajeev Dubey, Senior Product Manager for Kantech. “In addition to further enhanced user experience innovation, EntraPass offers our customers wireless lock integrations and the ability to integrate with a variety of third-party technologies, providing an integrated, comprehensive security solution to a variety of markets.”

EntraPass also introduces several incremental features in this software release, including the redundant gateway support for better fault tolerance capabilities. In addition, the EntraPass Go mobile application has improved report options while the EntraPass Web client offers more customization possibilities.
