Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, announces the release of AC2000 v8, which offers new features that increase the performance, simplicity, and scope of the AC2000 access control system suite from CEM Systems. These include AC2000 Data Partitioning and enhancements to AC2000 Security Hub command and control application. CEM Systems has also released enhancements to the emerald Intelligent Access Terminal range with the emerald TS100f and TS200f fingerprint terminals.
“The latest release of AC2000, which includes data partitioning, offers enhancements for multi-site and multi-tenanted customers,” said Richard Fletcher, Product Manager, CEM Systems. “AC2000 Database Partitioning is a powerful feature for scenarios where multiple companies utilise a single security management system. It empowers each company by giving them control over their own private access areas while still allowing them access to common areas within the building or campus.”
Enhancements within AC2000 Security Hub centralised command and control application include map zones, reports, and a seamless video integration interface which enables live video footage for specific configured alarms to be displayed.

Boarding and Deplaning Route Management mode
This release also offers enhanced functionality of emerald, CEM Systems’ award winning intelligent access terminal. Designed for use with the CEM Systems AC2000 security management system, emerald terminals not only control access to restricted areas but also open up a world of infinite possibilities by bringing AC2000 intelligence directly to the edge.
emerald now supports a configurable Boarding and Deplaning Route Management (BDRM) mode which provides a sophisticated touch screen-based passenger routing system for airports. emerald BDRM can be pre-programmed to activate a variety of functions from a single selection on the device including enabling relevant signage, interlocking a series of doors to form a route, enabling air bridges, fixed ground power units and much more.
Building on the existing range of video, perimeter, fire, and intrusion integrations, AC2000 now offers new integrations including interfaces to DSC PowerSeries Neo intrusion panel and Milestone XProtect Professional video management system.
