Software House iSTAR Controller

Software House, part of Tyco Security Products, introduces iSTAR Ultra, a 32-reader network door controller built on the Linux platform.

iSTAR Ultra combines support for traditional hard-wired access control doors with support for wireless locksets. Up to 32 readers are supported by iSTAR Ultra, of which 16 may come from the access control module’s (ACM) I/O units; the rest can be made up of ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless lock sets and devices.

The controller communicates with the latest version of C•CURE 9000 security and event management system for a complete access control solution. The device features dual GigE network ports and FIPS 197 certified AES 256 network encryption. Custom key management, embedded Denial-of-Service protection, DNS support, and an embedded web diagnostics tool provide customers with the ultimate in network security and reliability.
