Access control specialist TDSi set for launch of ONVIF-compatible GARDiS controller

Integrated security manufacturer TDSi will be introducing its all-new GARDiS controller to the UK market next month. The controller is the latest development in the company’s recently launched, fully-integrated GARDiS range following the release of its base software at the tail end of last year.

The two-door, ONVIF-compatible, PoE-powered and web-enabled GARDiS door controller is launched as the successor to the Poole-based company’s well-established EX Series controller range. GARDiS is designed to give powerful, yet highly user-friendly and fully-integrated security using cloud-based software.

Minimal training is required to install or use the system, reducing inconvenience and frustration for end users along with a reduction in time and associated costs.

GARDiS is a practical demonstration of TDSi’s commitment to realise a true ‘Security-as-a-Service’ offer for the market. Managing director John Davies elaborated: “The GARDiS software requires just a single installation for a fully web-based security and access control solution that runs as a service. This approach drastically reduces the capital costs associated with any security project, allowing the operator to pay a regular manageable fee in return for the latest upgrades and solutions.”
