Speeding up installation and configuration

ACT is faster to install as it gives you the choice of IP at the door, as well as the traditional RS485 installation method

There are no complicated quotations with ACT – merely count the doors, and you’re done. A simplified component list means your specifications will be consistently reliable with less possibility of omissions.

Building the bottom line - You’ll appreciate ACT’s ease and reliability of installation, and the way it helps your profitability. The system is engineered from first principles to speed installation and configuration. With ACT, you’ll see fewer callbacks, more satisfied customers, more completed jobs, and more repeat business.

Cost-efficient access control management platform

ACT’s panel software works up to 32 doors, where Enterprise software takes over and is free to 99 doors. After that, it is easily upgradeable to 4,000 doors. This gives you and your customers a flexible, cost-efficient, access control management platform to operate from. Anything over 99 doors is a simple upgrade license.

Applications of the ACT solution

Intruder Alarm - ACT hardware integrates with any intruder alarm securing your premises and reducing false alarms. This integration allows the user to arm or disarm their alarm from their keypad (ACT 1050e) when arriving to the building in the morning or leaving at night.

ACTEnterprise software has integrated with video manufacturers to allow you to associate doors with cameras to provide video evidence of an access control event

Long range & third-party readers - ACT controllers will operate with third-party long-range readers useful for vehicle barriers, wheelchair access or when hands-free access is required. ACT controllers are compatible with all readers that give a Wiegand or clock and data output.

Time and Attendance - ACTEnterprise comes complete with a time and attendance report. If more significant functionality is required ACT Enterprise integrates with leading time and attendance software providers to allow you to benefit from a complete T&A system while using existing ACTpro hardware.
