New from Johnson Controls is the Kantech KT-1 single door controller. The product comes with embedded simplified access control software for single door applications.
With KT-1’s new Standalone Mode, using a dedicated web browser, the KT-1 Ethernet-ready single door controller can be controlled and managed via an intuitive web based software. EntraPass software is not required. This makes the KT-1 a viable option the makers say for small businesses with basic access control needs such as being able to assign card access and run reports.
Rafael Schrijvers, Access Control Product Marketing Manager, EMEA, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls, says: “Full-fledged security management can be daunting for small businesses, but KT-1 Standalone removes the complexity from that process by giving users a web-based system that brings a greater level of security, while bypassing the investment required for computers and software.”
With no software required, KT-1 Standalone is appealing to a base beyond the traditional access control installer, according to the firm. As for training, there is no software system to learn or special certification needed. The wizard-based platform walks installers through the process in minutes.
Users with growing access control needs can migrate to the next level with Kantech EntraPass or hattrix software, the product company adds. Visit www.kantech.com.
