Tyco Security Products delivers wireless lock integration and Connected Partner Program with Kantech EntraPass 7.0
The newest version of Kantech's EntraPass Security Software includes ASSA ABLOY Aperio wireless lock integration and a robust partner program for integration with third-party technologies
WESTFORD, MA. July 11, 2016 –– Tyco Security Products introduces the latest version of its EntraPass Security Software from Kantech with integration to ASSA ABLOY Aperio®Wireless Lock Technology for deeper door density and reduction of wiring costs as well as a new Connected Partner Program for integration with third-party partner technologies for a more holistic solution.
EntraPass' integration with ASSA ABLOY Aperio Wireless Lock Technology provides customers an affordable way to bring the flexibility of wireless locks to any door in a facility including cabinets, drawers and server racks with little to no operational disruption. The Aperio locks become part of the EntraPass security software eco-system and can be managed from the EntraPass interface for a unified security management experience. The access control decisions on these locks will continue to be made by the state-of-the-art and reliable Kantech controllers. The wireless locks are ideal in settings such as universities, pharmacies, hospitals, human resources departments, data centers and any other door where electronic access control was previously cost prohibitive.
In addition, Kantech joins the Connected Partner Program from Tyco Security Products allowing third-party integrations to be developed using the Kantech software development kit (SDK). This allows the partner technologies to interact with EntraPass and thereby obtaining pertinent information such as card holders and events directly from EntraPass.
“Flexibility and affordability with a world class user experience have been the cornerstones of Kantech solutions for many years and the focal points of EntraPass 7.0,” said Rajeev Dubey, Senior Product Manager for Kantech. “In addition to further enhanced user experience innovation, EntraPass offers our customers wireless lock integrations and the ability to integrate with a variety of third-party technologies, providing an integrated, comprehensive security solution to a variety of markets.”
EntraPass also introduces several incremental features in this software release, including the redundant gateway support for better fault tolerance capabilities. In addition, the EntraPass Go mobile application has improved report options while the EntraPass Web client offers more customization possibilities.For more information on EntraPass Security Software and available integrations, visit Kantech at www.kantech.com.
