Simplifying Multi-Door Access Controls
Johnson Controls has introduced a new standalone mode for the Kantech KT-400 four door controller, allowing smaller access control systems of up to four doors to be controlled and managed using embedded and intuitive web based software, with no EntraPass access control software required. Used in conjunction with Kantech’s ioSmart card readers and cards, these controllers provide a unique, highly secure encrypted solution for small installations.
With no dedicated software or PC hardware to purchase and maintain, the KT-400 standalone provides an economical choice for small businesses with basic access control needs, such as assigning card access and running reports. Using a web browser, customers can configure and manage their security anywhere and at any time, via a desktop computer or a mobile device.
Used in conjunction with Kantech’s ioSmart Card Readers and Cards, KT-400 standalone controllers provide highly secure encryption measures for even the smallest systems. Communications between the ioSmart card and ioSmart reader employs AES 128-bit encryption, with RS-485 secure communication in use between the ioSmart reader and the KT-400 controller.
With an easy-plug-and play set up, the system is up and running in minutes following a simple configuration wizard, which eliminates the need for training or certification of dealers and installers. KT-400 standalone controllers can also easily connect to EntraPass Web for browser based access management and the EntraPass Go app for system management via a mobile device.
