HID Global launches Edge Solo Version 1.2.0

Product Profile

Edge is a true IP solution that meets the demands of open architecture, IP-centric environments, Edge provides fully distributed intelligence and decision making right to the door, leveraging the IT infrastructure to the maximum extent possible.

These IP-based single-door access control processors and host interface devices provide a high level of flexibility for connecting HID reader technology directly into standard IT network infrastructure. Edge Solo Readers feature an open architecture API with fully distributed decision making capabilities, CAT-5 interface cabling with Power Over Ethernet (PoE) and fully encrypted bi-directional communication.

EdgeSolo v.1.2 is the next phase of the original Edge Solo product development effort which provides access control functionality and provisioning usually found in larger much more expensive solutions and not found in any other stand-alone solution.

The latest version of Edge Solo adds several new features to the product, including:

  • Two additional languages are supported - Turkish and Dutch.
  • Clock-and-Data Readers are now supported.
  • PIN credentials and HID keypad readers are now supported.
  • Added "PIN suppression schedule" feature to relax PIN requirements.
  • A credential batch entry method has been created, allowing the operator to quickly add a range of consecutively numbered credentials.
  • Configurable Alerts to drive relays or send HTTP messages triggered by IO events are now available.
  • Special Days (holidays) have been made globally available among different schedules, and a holiday management data entry page has been added.
  • A "First Person" or "Snow day" schedule option has been added.
  • A separate "user" password has been added.  An "Installer lockout" option removes some setup privileges for "user" relative to the "admin" logon.
