|AC2000 SE offers the Ministry integrated access control, alarms processing, and photo ID badging system|
, part of Tyco Security Products
, has announced that the CEM AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) security management system
has been chosen to secure access to the Ministry of Finance building, Nigeria. The contract was awarded to CEM approved reseller, ACTI-TECH
The Ministry of Finance, Nigeria oversees various financial and economic affairs of the federal government of Nigeria including managing, controlling, and monitoring all federal revenues and expenditures."CEM Systems offered great support throughout the project and provided an excellent solution to secure the Ministry of Finance,"
said Peter Madu, Managing Director of ACTI-TECH. "The fully integrated solution will allow the premises to run effectively and efficiently with the highest of security measures."
AC2000 SE offers the Ministry of Finance a fully integrated and comprehensive access control, alarms processing, and photo ID badging system. The system comes with a suite of applications including AC2000 VIPPS (Visual Imaging Pass Production System)
which the Ministry of Finance found particularly beneficial. AC2000 VIPPS application allows the Ministry of Finance to design their own ID badges and issue over 1500 permanent and temporary ID cards to staff and visitors.
A range of advanced CEM IP card readers were installed throughout the building, including the CEM S610f fingerprint card reader
. The S610f fingerprint reader offers increased security by providing three levels of identity checks - ID card authentication, PIN check, and fingerprint verification. The reader allows the Ministry of Finance the opportunity to add an additional layer of biometric security where necessary.
The S610f is a fully integrated biometric and access control reader that is used as part of the AC2000 SE system
Featuring a controller, card reader, and fingerprint solution in one device, the S610f is a fully integrated biometric and access control reader that is used as part of the AC2000 SE system. Fingerprint templates are captured on the AC2000 enrolment station at the same time as a cardholder's personnel details and images are captured and are then saved to the AC2000 server. Cards can then be issued and biometric templates distributed via the access control network, eliminating the need for an additional biometric network and software enrolment process.
The S610f offers advanced features such as an LCD to show user messages such as ‘Access Granted', ‘Card Expiring', and ‘Wrong TimeZone'. S610f also uniquely features an internal database enabling intelligent decision making at doors at all times; even when communication has been temporarily lost with the host system. "AC2000 SE provides a flexible and highly stable solution for installations where security is of paramount importance; it is perfect for the Ministry of Finance,"
said Andrew Fulton, Business Development Director, CEM Systems. "Utilising CEM's advanced range of hardware, the Ministry of Finance also chose CEM's high power over Ethernet solution, the first of its kind in the industry."
The CEM DIU 230 (High Power over Ethernet Door Interface Unit)
eliminates the need for both a main connection and a local power supply to the door. Utilising Ethernet infrastructure throughout the Ministry of Finance, the DIU 230 supplies sufficient power via the same Cat 5e/6 cable that powers CEM card readers, as well as reliably powers double magnetic locks that secure the doors.
