Access Secured Areas with Your Mobile Phone using EntraPass Go Pass Mobile App

Pay for coffee with your phone, board an airplane with your phone…and now access secured areas with your phone. EntraPass Go Pass allows users with appropriate credentials to quickly and conveniently access secured areas simply by pressing the appropriate icon of the door in the app, as they approach the door or from anywhere in the world. A leap forward in convenience, EntraPass Go Pass turns an iOS mobile device into an access control credential. You can save doors that you access frequently into a Favorite list for quick and easy access. Once the app connects to the Kantech EntraPass server, it presents you with a list of doors that you are authorized to enter…just as if you had an access card. Since the app communicates directly with the EntraPass server, organizations can leverage their existing card reader infrastructure and save on the cost of new card readers required with other mobile credentialing technologies.

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.

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.
