Tyco Kantech KT-2 is a ‘Cost-Effective’ Two-Door Controller for SMBs
The Kantech KT-2 door controller can be used as either a standalone system or integrated with the EntraPass security management software.
MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls, a global leader in smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, introduces the Tyco Kantech KT-2, an adaptable two-door controller that it says is cost-effective and easy to install and operate for small-to-medium sized businesses.
This new door controller expands Johnson Controls‘ line of multi-door control solutions purposely designed for retailers, medical offices, warehouses and businesses with needs ranging from one door to thousands.
The KT-2 is said to seamlessly integrate into OpenBlue, the dynamic platform for connected, safe and sustainable building solutions from Johnson Controls.
The new door controller can be used as either a standalone system or integrated with the EntraPass security management software to leverage WiFi connectivity, providing a cost-effective solution for challenging access control installations that typically require extensive cabling, according to the company.
When in Standalone Mode, the KT-2 door controller can be managed through a dedicated web browser, providing a user-friendly, feature rich alternative for two-door security without the need for a full security management software.
Johnson Controls says installers of the KT-2 will find deployment quick and seamless by using an intuitive wizard-based platform that guides them through the set-up and installation process.
Designed with small-to-medium businesses in mind, the KT-2 is compatible with EntraPass software (v. 8.40 or higher) which utilizes the full set of features that the KT-2 offers. The capacitive touch-sensitive screen provides one-button programming for plug and play installation.
The KT-2 supports two readers, ioModules and other KT controllers such as the KT-1 and KT-400. When paired with Kantech ioSmart readers, the KT-2 provides end-to-end encryption, ensuring secure communication between access control devices. The KT-2 door controller includes a five-year warranty.
