Inner Range’s award-winning Inception entry-level access control and security alarm system has been upgraded with a new dedicated app and the ability to integrate with the Milestone Access platform. Existing and prospective end users can now use the Sky Command App to control access remotely. It allows interactive control and live status of areas, inputs, doors and outputs as well as simple or multimode area arming options. Push notifications can be sent to smart phones, thereby helping security managers to remain alert to any changes on site.
An integration with Milestone Systems’ XProtect video management system allows the Inception controller to become the security and access mechanism supporting the Milestone system. Multiple Inception systems can be integrated with a single Milestone system for multi-site monitoring. The integration means that live access and alarm events can be sent to Milestone, allowing a wide range of actions to be triggered within the Milestone system, such as operators being able to compare video footage to a user’s photo to grant access.
The latest update for Inception also includes the ability to customise notifications that are sent to security managers about events on site as well as the capability to secure the Local Area Network (LAN) and detect if a module has been substituted without permission. A warning now indicates if the LAN is not secured, while any detected module substitutions are automatically reported.
Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, told Risk Xtra: “These enhancements add to Inception’s competitive advantage, offering easier and smarter access for security managers, the option to integrate with Milestone’s XProtect and even better security when it comes to the LAN and rogue module substitution. Inception is now an even greater access and security system for power and flexibility that’s also quick and easy to install and will not break the bank.”
*Inner Range will be showcasing these enhancements for Inception (as well as new capabilities for its flagship intelligent access control and intruder detection system Integriti) on Stand IF1030 at IFSEC International. The show runs from Tuesday 18-Thursday 20 June at ExCel in London
