SSI’s Security+ Product Review: NAPCO AirAccess

Dealer digs into the details of how this cellular-based system has simplified his company’s move into the ACaaS market.

Security Sales & Integration is thrilled to introduce the new SSI Security+ Product Review. This exciting and unique new platform will be spotlighting recent product introductions into the dealer and integrator channel. Each edition provides basics from a manufacturer representative along with more detailed insights from an installing pro who has successfully deployed the offering for an end customer.

This inaugural edition spotlights the AirAccess Cellular-Based Access Control as a Service (ACaaS) offering from NAPCO Security Technologies. To tell you all about it and his company’s rewarding and successful experiences with the product is Zac Grappa, vice president of operations for Gappa Security Solutions of Waupun, Wis. Supporting and expanding on his AirAccess observations is NAPCO Business Development Manager Rob Etmans.

AirAccess was a 2021 SSI Top 30 Technologies award winner, when Tech Talk columnist Bob Dolph noted, “Now one can quickly configure and deploy a scalable wireless access system with an easy cell communicator and gateway to wireless locks or panels or panel Wiegand readers. The system is plug-n-play with little training and no tech specialist required, and it’s the right size for the largest segment of today’s commercial market: small- and medium-sized businesses.”

AirAccess teams NAPCO’s access knowhow with its most popular security technologies. That includes the leading cellular communications of StarLink alarm radios and the top wireless access control capability of its Alarm Lock division’s Trilogy Networx wireless access control PIN/prox locks, or Net-Panel, used with HID readers for a truly scalable, revolutionarily easy-to-use, self-configurable access solution.

To fully grasp this impactful product, the video explains what AirAccess is; how to set it up and its many benefits; what to expect during the installation process; ways to sell the solution and the advantages it brings end customers; and finally how NAPCO stands behind the product with deep tools, support and guidance.
