Introducing access control solutions from Samsung

Product Profile

Samsung's RFID and biometric technology based access control systems collectively provide a cost effective solution for any access control application from single door to large building or multi-site projects.

The range is broken down into standalone controllers, single & four door controllers, readers and software, with versions suitable for standalone or full TCP/IP or RS-485 operation.

Standalone controllers

With a choice of built-in reader technologies that encompass facial recognition, fingerprint recognition, proximity and smart card & PIN, as well as time and attendance options, Samsung's range of standalone controllers offer the ideal solution for single door security with the option to network together over multiple doors. When networked, it is possible to easily share the biometric database to other connected standalone controllers without the need for a separate computer or additional software. However, Samsung standalone controllers are also fully compatible with Samsung's access control software packages should users wish to benefit from additional features such as sharing card details over the network.

Single and four-door controllers

Samsung's single door control panels are Mifare and Samsung format selectable straight from the box, whilst the four door solution is available to order in separate Mifare and Samsung format versions. Both have a TCP/IP networking functionality as an option from the standard RS-485 operation and have anti pass-back functionality with the single door unit containing two reader inputs and the four door unit containing four reader inputs.


Samsung's comprehensive range of readers are available in two formats with customers able to choose between Mifare or Samsung's proprietary access control formats. Combined with the option of standard or vandal resistant proximity/PIN, smart card and biometric fingerprint readers, these provide installers and system integrators with the flexibility to select the best possible product configuration for the job at hand. What's more, Samsung readers featuring smart card/proximity are supplied with an extended lifetime warranty.


Samsung Access Management Software (SAMS) is available in both basic and professional server and client versions. The basic version of the server software, "SAMS Basic", allows full administration of the access control system and can provide detailed reports on card holder activity which can be exported in Excel or text form for integration with other software packages, e.g. Time & Attendance, ERP or Payroll. The professional version, "SAMS Pro", provides this plus additional advanced functionality including the support of integrated Access Control and video monitoring to allow an operator to view video activity related to a specific card holder. The status of readers, inputs/outputs and cameras can also be monitored on a user defined map.

On the client side, the corresponding software "SAMS Basic Lite" and "SAMS Pro Lite" allows authorised staff to perform administrative tasks such as adding and removing cards and viewing events without access to system configuration options.

Commenting on the launch of the new Access Control product range, David Cawley, Access Control Product Manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd said: "Samsung is continuing to evolve at pace into a full security solutions provider. The introduction of our Access Control product range is a clear demonstration of our commitment to offer products and technologies from various disciplines which integrate together to bring real benefits to the end-user."
