& Secure Access Control with Intrusion & Aperio
A secure new way for access
are many advantages of providing an integrated security system, one
which combines both intrusion and access control. However, some times the system becomes complex in handling both tasks.
Utilizing the Aperio wireless, specifically the Securitron
R100 reader, the Connect ONE Access Expander, and a relay output on
your preferred intrusion control panel, the simplification can begin.
The access expander processes the access request from the
Aperio readers along with the associated intrusion status as well as
controlling the intrusion arm/disarm action as necessary. If access is
granted it will activate the mapped intrusion panel relay to unlock the
door. So far the process should feel very familiar if you are
experienced with an integrated control panel.
comes from the ease of permission control which is provided in the
access expander and does not have to follow the typical control panel area
scheme. With System Profiles in the access expander, on most of Connect ONE intrusion panel integrations,
the permissions for access are separated from alarm areas and doors, so
you no longer need to program additional areas just to specify permission by door.
Another big benefit of this approach with the Securitron R100 reader is
the additional security it provides. Hardwire readers on the
non-secure side of the door, i.e. outside of the intrusion protection,
may be open to tampering. For instance, a wiegand based
interface may be exposed to hacking attempts, a power short could
defeat keypad bus circuits and/or overload the panel, and Ethernet
based readers provide an easy method to patch into the
network. The fully encrypted wireless technology readers remove
every one of those vulnerabilities.
Lastly, the reader, being all wireless, provides the ultimate
flexibility in mounting location which simplifies the installation and
provides for a more accurate bid since labor costs are known.
Securitron R100 with Aperio Wireless
A new feature is available called the "Support
Access Lockout" which is designed for when there are customer privacy
concerns or a higher level of security is required by your customer.
It is selectively enabled per customer and as such until
enabled for the first time, your customer will not see any reference to
Once enabled, from the Dealer Site go to Customer then Customer Info,
you will lose access to login to the customer site as well as control
functions such as arming, door control, etc. However, you
will still be able to send and receive information, assign areas, reset
sensors, silence alarms, and other management level
And your customer will now be able to toggle the lockout from Utilities
in their application, available in both the web browser and iOS/Android
Apps. The user will need View & Modify permission to
Utilities to be able to toggle the lockout mode. Every
enable/disable of the lockout is logged as an event which is reviewable
in Reports and may also be setup in an Event Rule for notification.
Along with the lockout feature you may also optionally turn on the
ability for the customer to see your activity which will also
the ability to be notified of dealer activity events. This is a
customer level option, so you only need to enable it for customers
it. Also, it will only show the name of your company who
logged in or made the change, it will not show the individual employee
name. On the Dealer Site you will continue to see who
specifically made the change.
To enable, go to the Customer from the Dealer Site, click on Customer
Options from the menu on the left and check the Show Dealer Events
option and hit Save. Now the customer will see dealer events
in the Activity log as well as an option under Users in the Report
displayed alongside Doors & Outputs
For added convenience of not needing
to switch back and forth between the Security page and the Doors
& Outputs page, if the associated area of the door is armed it
will appear alongside the doors. This way the intrusion area
may be disarmed at the same time as unlocking the door.
Connect ONE App
Supported on Apple Mac M1
The Connect ONE iOS App is fully supported on
Apple Mac products utilizing the new Apple M1 processor. Now
your customer can use the App or the browser version on their Mac.
Did You Know? Connect ONE includes COVID
Safe Passage Module provides a framework for a one-time/periodic
self-approval process. If required and not completed, upon access by
the individual, violation events are generated so a manager can ensure
the user is safe to be at the site in regard to health and/or hazard
concerns. Documentation is stored with the user account showing they
have answered the proper questions and approved any company terms such
as an NDA.
An administrator may create multiple safe passage templates. They may
specify a name, description, re-approval interval, required
checkpoint(s), protected area(s), custom messages, and custom terms
which need to be answered properly to be approved. When a user is
applied to the template, they may be applied to multiple templates via
their profile, they will receive an email which contains a link for
them to complete the terms of the template.
