Kantech Debuts industry-first mobile app with one-touch installation
EntraPass Go Install brings expedited installation and lower installation costs to customers
WESTFORD, MA. August 22, 2016 –– Tyco Security Products introduces Kantech EntraPass Go Install, a free mobile application that uses intuitive QR code technology, pre-populated fields and a simplified commissioning process to significantly decrease installation time and lower the total cost of ownership. The application can be associated with other security devices, such as cameras managed by exacqVision, zones managed by DSC PowerSeries Neo intrusion panels and Kantech card readers to provide a Complete Security Solution.
Kantech EntraPass Go Install allows system integrators and end users to connect to their Kantech EntraPass servers by selecting from a list of existing servers or adding one manually and to configure Kantech KT-1 and KT-400 door controllers. Configuration is done by scanning a QR code that contains the controller’s MAC address and serial number, enabling remote configuration of controller as well as doors without a desktop computer. EntraPass Go Install’s Express Setup includes pre-populated fields for doors that can be modified and labeled with easy to identify user-friendly names, like ‘Staff Exit Door’ and ‘Front Lobby Door.’
EntraPass Go Install also makes configuration of KT-1 and KT-400 door controllers easier and quicker with app-based test activities that generate commissioning reports once all tests are completed. Test activities include activating buzzers, card swipes and locking/unlocking doors among many others. Once testing is complete, the commissioning report can be saved with corroborating system photos that verify all tests have been passed. The completed commissioning report provides setup verification to system integrators, end users and technicians who support the system so that they know the system has been deployed correctly and limits call backs significantly.
“Kantech has always focused on delivering reliable and user-friendly products that focus on smoother installation and configuration,” said Jason Ouellette, Product Line Director – Access Control, Tyco Security Products. “You’ll see Kantech’s signature pairing of ease of use and product quality with EntraPass Go Install, plus powerful device associations that integrate access control, video and intrusion together for a total security solution.”
The mobile app lets you associate other security devices – Kantech doors, relays, inputs, Exacq video and DSC PowerSeries Neo zones with one-button ease. All of these labor-saving features deliver lower installation costs to customers and quicker installation for integrators.
