Videx, manufacturer of access control systems, has launched a new offline, standalone proximity access control system.
MiAccess has been designed for a wide range of buildings that have single or multiple entrances. This includes offices, residential homes and small guest houses, as well as fitness centres, caravan parks and small hotels.
A free software (PROA-MS for access control and PROH-MS for hotels and guest houses) allows users to configure the different access levels, the user rights, and to view reports. Access rights of each user are stored on the Mifare cards. The system can be completely managed from the PC programme, a feature aimed at reducing the installation cost and complications associated with routing cables around a building.
Multiple sites can be managed from the same PC programme. The system also allows the management of all access points to be controlled from the user’s PC using read/write Mifare cards to transfer data to and from the readers when required. Alternatively, data can be transferred using the USB port found on each reader.
“The beauty of MiAccess is that it can be part of a multiple entrance (80 maximum) system without the need to cable between devices,” comments Steve Natton, special projects manager at Videx. “This means that it’s extremely easy to install and very cost effective too, ideal for smaller installations saving installation time while still maintaining system flexibility.
“This is a complete user-friendly and competitive access control solution. It’s perfect for sites where an online solution cannot be used due to cable restraints, or when a network system is simply not needed. The installation is much easier because the only cabling requirements are to the lock release mechanism and a power supply,” adds Steve.
Systems require only one or more Mifare proximity readers, the management software, Mifare cards and a USB desktop reader for enrolment. An optional exit push button with a built-in remote relay is also available if higher security is needed.
