Johnson Controls has announced the release of CEM Systems’ AC2000 v10.1, which contains a number of new features designed to improve functionality and the end user experience, as well as generally helping to mitigate Health and Safety risks for today’s organisations.
Support for a range of new third party products that increase the performance and scope of the AC2000 access control system has also been added to the mix.
The Health and Safety Induction Check application for CEM Systems’ emerald intelligent access terminals allows cardholders to self-certify with a card swipe on the emerald terminal once they’ve completed Health and Safety induction training and before they’re afforded access to a site. The application automatically records the induction completed date on the system, helping to mitigate the risk of Health and Safety incidents, and reports detail on who has (and hasn’t) completed the necessary training.
Another Health and Safety feature is the Emergency Responder Remote application which helps to improve emergency response times during incidents. This application allows system users to quickly find emergency responders (eg fire marshals, First Aiders and/or first responders) via emerald terminals.
Functionality at the edge has been improved with enhancements to the Local Access Remote application on the terminal. This allows ‘Extra Access’ to be added, amended and removed via the app and, in addition, provides potential cost savings for remote sites where a workstation client may not be a feasible option.
Support has been added for the MorphoWave Compact frictionless biometric access reader, SimonsVoss SmartIntego wireless locking solutions and STid’s Architect range of RFID readers. This builds on the range of biometric wireless lock solutions and RFID reader options already available to myriad system end users.
