The AXIS A1001 network door controller by Axis Communications of Chelmsford, Mass., is a non-proprietary IP-based access controller featuring built-in Web-based software, according to the company.
The controller is a platform for two different solutions. AXIS Entry is a ready-made solution for small- to mid-sized businesses with 10 doors and basic access control requirements. For larger enterprise systems, AXIS A1001’s open application programming interface enables the company’s application development partners (ADP) to meet specific customer requirements.
Main features of the UL 2043-listed device include open architecture that allows easy integration of video, intrusion detection and other systems, and support for PoE to reduce the need for separate power and proprietary cables.
Other offerings include automatic synchronization and storage of cardholder data and system configuration information between controllers, with units manageable from any network computer. An open application programming interface designed for compliance with ONVIF Profile C, will enable interoperability between clients and devices of physical access control systems (PACS) and network-based video systems.
