LENEXA, KS — AccessNsite®, the security software division of American Direct, announced today significant new features to the software that allow integration to key physical security and surveillance devices. The updates include integration with elevator manufacturers Otis Elevator Company and Thyssenkrupp Elevator, intercom manufacturers 2N Intercom and Aiphone Intercom, and Pelco VideoXpert video management system and will be available to customers in June of this year. This update marks the eighth major upgrade to the software since 2016. AccessNsite will showcase these new features and American Direct’s totally integrated safety and security solutions at ISC West in booth #5109.
Details of the upgrades include:
Elevator Integration: Thyssenkrupp Elevator Destination Dispatch and Otis Elevator Destination Dispatch
The elevator user interfaces with a kiosk and, when access rights have been validated through AccessNsite, the user is directed to a specific elevator cab. The system is able to group passengers and stops, making it more efficient than traditional elevator systems.
Intercom Integration: Aiphone IX Series IP Video Intercom and the full line of 2N IP Intercoms
Within the AccessNsite application, the user can configure intercom hardware, determine intercom status, initiate a call from one intercom device to another, and control the output on an intercom device.
Pelco VideoXpert – The integration with the Pelco VideoXpert video management system supports both VideoXpert Enterprise and VideoXpert Professional and incorporates all the features supported for AccessNsite’s other VMS integrations: pop-up video on alarm, video grid, video scrubbing, and camera auto-discovery.
Mercury LP Series Controllers – The LP Series controllers (LP2500, LP1502, LP1501) are Mercury’s next generation of intelligent controllers that run embedded Linux. These new controller boards can now be used with AccessNsite.
These new upgrades are in addition to AccessNsite’s own VideoIP solution and RDS-2 appliance server released in Fall 2017, and the recent Wi-Fi integration with Allegion’s Schlage NDE and LE Wireless Locksets.
“Our ongoing investment and development of AccessNsite is apparent as we continue to expand our technology alliances with key physical security and surveillance manufacturers,” said Jerry Glynn, American Direct Chief Information Officer. “These added integrations give AccessNsite users the confidence that their buildings—and the human lives within—are safe and secure.”
