ZKAccess, a leading provider of biometric and RFID security solutions, is pleased to announce that it now offers PoE-powered solutions in its 1 and 2-door controller kits. The kits are capable of supplying power to all ZKAccess access control components, such as panels, multiple readers and 3rd party door locks. These kits with built-in POE provide the fastest, easiest, and least costly way to bring electronic security to the door.
Cost efficient and easy installation
ZKAccess has long been the world’s undisputed price-leader in affordable access control products, based on its low production costs and the fact that it manufactures all its products in-house in its 500,000 square foot ISO9001- certified factory. However, in some markets, including the U.S. and Europe, labour is often the biggest cost component of any access control project. Much of the labour in any access control installation has been historically comprised of licensed electricians’ fees and the associated time and materials needed to provide power to all the connecting devices.
Now, with ZKAccess convenient 1 and 2-door kits, installers can simply connect ZKAccess door controllers to the nearest POE switch. And since ZKAccess panels and readers all connect using standard CAT5e/6 lightweight network cable, expensive licensed electricians are no longer needed to complete the job.
"ZKAccess continues to drive down its production cost, but that’s only half the battle in helping maintain our partners’ profitability," notes Larry Reed, CEO, ZKAccess. "Our partners also need products that are quick and easy to install. ZKAccess complete 1 and 2-door access control kits with built-in POE provide the quickest, easiest, and most affordable way to bring electronic security to the door. It’s a true win-win-win for ZKAccess, our partners and of course, our end users. "
