ProdataKey’s New Map View Feature Enables Intuitive Access Control
When security personnel are alerted to an open door, Map View allows them to see whether all other doors nearby are in a proper state.
DRAPER, Utah — ProdataKey (PDK), manufacturer of a Cloud access control platform built for mobile, introduces the latest enhancement to its Pdk io software interface, Map View.
The Map View feature is said to allow users to upload custom maps and arrange device icons onto floorplans, making it possible to view and control each door’s status while looking at the full system layout on their phone, tablet or laptop.
Multiple maps can be created for a single location, representing buildings, rooms, floors or other areas, according to an announcement. By linking maps together, users may easily navigate from one to the next, mimicking how they would physically travel through the site. JPEG or PNG images may be used for map images. Once a map is created and named, icons are easily dragged into location.
The new feature makes site monitoring more convenient and intuitive, as door and system status for large areas can be quickly ascertained in a single view, the announcement states. When security personnel are automatically alerted to an open door, they can quickly see whether all other doors nearby are in a proper state. If not, doors can be locked individually, or as a group, via the Map View interface.
Partitions may be set for specific maps within a site, allowing only certain people to view and manage doors and devices within those areas.
“We anticipate the Map View feature to be extremely popular with Pdk system users,” says Dallam Labrum, ProdataKey’s director of sales. “There really is no easier or more intuitive way to monitor site security from anywhere, anytime, from any device.”
