GREENVILLE, S.C. — ScanSource Security, a distributor of physical security products, can now provide a comprehensive access control solution to its reseller and dealer partners through products from ASSA ABLOY, Axis Communications, HID Global and Securitron.
The open, network-based solution includes Axis’ new A1001 Network Door Controller, ASSA ABLOY’s HES electric strikes and other entry hardware, HID Global cards and readers, and Securitron’s electromagnetic locks, exit bars and devices.
“The access control market is migrating from analog to network-based products, and, with our experience and leadership in this market, offering a comprehensive access control solution from these manufacturers, coupled with our value-added services and tools, will enable our resellers to deliver high-quality products and support to their end-user customers — all from one source,” says Christie Hamberis, vice president of merchandising, ScanSource Security.
Because the access control market is mostly a “closed, proprietary, analog world,” the launch of the AXIS A1001 will enable integrators to build more flexible solutions for their customers, says Bruce Stewart, business development manager, Access Control, Axis.
“Thanks to open architecture, PoE support and Axis’ deep software partnerships, integrators now have ‘one controller in the van’ to design everything from a single-door solution to an enterprise-sized system that can integrate with other security platforms,” he says.
