TechPro Security Products is now the main distributor of high end Access Control Systems and Accessories in the United States through IDTECK, a global powerhouse in Access Control.
IDTECK has made some significant strides in Access Control and their systems are implemented in some of the highest security driven markets such as the Pentagon and The Department of the Army here in the United States. Worldwide, IDTECK has made a name for themselves in every continent.
What sets IDTECK apart from other Access Control Companies is the fact that in 2009, IDTECK was awarded the US and Korean Patent for Facial Recognition in an Access Control System, which they are working on to implement.
IDTECK also has major ODM contracts with Motorola and Samsung.
Stand-Alone Access Control Readers
The ACRS-MAC1000-SR shown below is the ultimate in a stand-alone Access Controller. There is up to 4 steps in security with this unit. Keypad, Fingerprint, Access Card and Video. There is no other product like this in the market. This unit can also act as a videophone.
IDTECK has also been the leader in Fingerprint Recognition. Gone are the days when you can make a simple copy of a fingerprint or cut someone’s finger off (like they show in the movies). IDTECK’s Fingerprint Algorithm is heat sensitive and knows when it is detecting a “living” finger. A severed finger is cold to the touch. Also, because of the special fingerprint algortim, IDTECK’s Fingerprint Readers can read fingers that are scarred, wrinkled, burned, and oily. The level of sophistication in just IDTECK’s Fingerprint Recognition and Facial Recognition alone is the reason why we at Techpro Security Products have chosen to distribute IDTECK’s Access Control products through our Retail site (www.securitycameraking.com) as well as our Dealer Site (TechVisonCCTV.com).
Access Control Systems
There are multitudes of configurations when it comes to Access Control. From one to many hundreds of doors, you can achieve a secure environment making sure only the people you want to have entrance will have the correct credentials. Case study after case study has shown that IDTECK’s Access Control Systems delivers that high-end security every time. From hotels and hospitals to government agencies, IDECK continues to beat down their competition through constant performance and upgrades to their products.
Below is a sample wiring diagram for an 8 Door Access Control System via a TCP/IP Network.
In this configuration I am using the iEDC 8 Door Access Control Board (which also does come in a package). I am only showing the configuartion for 1 of those 8 doors in this diagram. This Access Control board is networked using Cat5e Ethernet cable and can be powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or 12v DC Power. The Board is connected to the hub and so is your computer. The iEDC has an Embedded Web Server so that you can connect directly into it via your computer without the need of additional software. For a more enhanced approach to your access control, we suggest purchasing the Enterprise Software, giving you control over features such as Time Management, ID Badging, Visitor Management and Video Surveillance.
The iEDC Eight Door Access Controller will also need to connect to your readers, locks and buttons at each door. On the entrance to each door there will be a reader. Readers come in various forms such as Proximity Card Access, Fingerprint Access, and Keypad Access (or a combination of each) and they can also be Smart Card Accessible or traditional RF (radio frequency) Card Accessible. Smart Cards are RF cards that can also hold data. Those Readers will unlock either a Door Strike or a Magnetic Lock and the individual will now have access. On the other side of the door for exiting purposes, there will be a “request to exit” button which will signal the Access Controller to unlock either the electronic door strike or Magnetic Lock.
All 8 of these door configurations can all be controlled by your computer so you can maintain a constant guard to your facilities. Keep in mind that this is a simple example of an 8 door system. As stated above, the possibilities are endless for configurations of one to many doors.
Vandal Resistant Controllers
As I have stated, IDTECK is always improving their line of Access Control Products. They have developed a completely weatherproof and waterproof, Vandal resistant Proximity Standalone Controller. I have been told directly from the manufacturer that they have tested the strength of the LED Touchpad of the ACRS-100RV shown below.
They tested everything with this unit from hammers and screwdrivers to even a drill. IDTECK’s representative said that he personally put all his might using a drill bit and actually broke 3 bits before he started to go through this keypad controller. I would venture a guess that the would-be criminal would already be apprehended before he could even get into the second drill bit, being that most doors with access control would also have surveillance cameras with motion alerts.
Last on my list of how great IDTECK’s Access Control Products are their powerful smart cards. Smart cards have the benefit of a standard Proximity Access Card along with the ability to save information on it such as food credits or cash allowance. Students at a college could use this type of card to not only gain access to their classes that they are registered for, but they can also use it as a type of “refillable credit card” so that the student can buy books, clothes or food at the recreational center. In a hospital or office environment the same type of card could be used to gain access into certain areas and to also buy food at the office complex. These Smart cards come in credit card slim size and also Key Fobs and stickers that can easily be attached to your personal belongings such as a smart phone or wallet.
