Stanley Security Products is set to seize the initiative in access control for the residential, small commercial and light industrial markets with the launch at IFSEC 2008 of its revolutionary new iPAC unit.
The iPAC is an all-in-one access controller and proximity reader with built-in Microsoft Windows® CE which enables it to be easily installed, set-up and programmed without the need for a separate on-site computer.
Designed to work with the popular PAC OnePlatform™ access control solution and with full connectivity to the PAC 512 door controller, the iPAC can be installed without the need for additional software, whilst providing remote administration as standard.
Stand-alone or networked with a PAC access control software solution, this complete, compact unit takes up very little space and could not be simpler to install or programme. With its easy to operate navigation jog wheel and QVGA colour LCD screen, new users, keys and profiles can all be set up within minutes.
The iPAC can be programmed to retain the details, including multiple access rights and multiple time profiles of up to 1,100 keyholders and 100 operators. It has a viewable event log of up to 500 separate access control events and retains a database of up to 10,000 downloadable event records. In-built web browser interface also enables remote administration, so users dialing in remotely over the network can, for example, change keyholder profiles or monitor event records.
The new iPAC has also been designed to accommodate every type of user, being available in six languages and fully compliant with DDA.
Commenting on the iPAC launch, Product and Marketing Manager Rob Brice, said, "The iPAC is a true ‘out of the box' solution. Supporting existing Stanley technology, including PAC EasiNet Residential and EasiKey Manager software, it offers significant dealer and installer benefits.
"We believe the iPAC will help Stanley seize the initiative in the dominant mid-range access control market, typically residential accommodation, light commercial and small industrial applications with between 2 and 16 doors requiring multiple keyholder access and event monitoring."
