Widely regarded as the industry's premier event, the IFSEC Security Industry Awards is both a celebration and an acknowledgement of excellence of the products and technological innovations influencing and shaping the industry.
smarti Guardeon is primarily aimed at the high security access control market
smarti is a complete multi-modal biometric access control, time & attendance and building automation solution.
Guardeon combines the integrated proximity card reader which people are used to, with multi-modal biometric face and voice recognition providing higher security and inhibiting system abuse.
An added advantage of this product is the integration of multiple additional features (complete time & attendance, building automation, video intercom, video & IP phone, video messaging and video surveillance system) into one compact device for a reasonable price. smarti is completely protocol independent and can therefore be used to control almost any kind of electronic device (different sensors, electronic locks, lights, alarm systems, finger print scanners etc).
smarti Guardeon is meant for indoor and outdoor use and is in-wall or on-wall mountable. The unit is fan-less for quiet operation and has an IP65 compliant aluminium front casing. The unit was designed to have low power consumption and a slim profile. It is equipped with an 8" industrial grade sun-readable colour LCD display and a resistant touch screen, integrated RFID & Mifare reader, motion detector, microphone, speakers, Intel Atom processor, solid state disk drive, 1 GB memory and gigabit Ethernet. The built-in adjustable IR CCD camera and 12 IR LED lights provides reliable identification in all lighting conditions. Integrated communication ports and relay I/O controller can be used to control lights, electronic locks, alarms, sensors etc.
Designed with flexibility in mind, smarti Guardeon can be used for many applications, but is primarily aimed at the high security access control market.
