ACCESS CONTROL JOINS THE IOT

22-05-2018

RS Components is now supplying an award-winning IoT-based system from Abus said to deliver superior access-control management for small- to medium-sized commercial and industrial buildings.

The Abus wAppLoxx can manage access to as many as 20 doors in a building or facility. The easy-to-use web-based system allows companies to easily manage access rights and quickly modify the system for changes in staff or new employees. In addition, a dedicated app allows system supervisors to adjust system settings with just a few clicks by using a smartphone or tablet.

The wAppLoxx access-control system combines the advantages of a traditional access-control system with flexible and smart online management via the web or via an intranet. Quick and easy creation of access rights is enabled for up to 150 people, for example, providing separate access rights for individual offices, archives or sensitive areas in building such as laboratories, medication storage facilities, warehouses or industrial complexes. In addition to providing access control, alarm systems can be connected via a cable to the wAppLoxx, thereby preventing false alarms and optimising overall building control.

The system includes a control unit, which can be connected to 20 wAppLoxx electronic double-knob cylinders, which feature a sturdy design with high-quality stainless-steel knobs with a synthetic cap. These cylinders integrate write-protected Mifare DESFire transponder tags and connect with the control unit via 128bit AES-encrypted wireless communications.

Two types of cylinder are available: one for access control and a second type that is also suitable for alarm system control.
