Johnson Controls adds cloud-based access control to Cloudvue platform

Johnson Controls – the specialist provider of bespoke solutions for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings – is introducing Cloudvue with access control thanks to the Tyco Kantech KT-1 one-door controller. This powerful technology collaboration enables centrally managed cloud video surveillance and access control across an entire organisation from a single browser and is very much part of the Johnson Controls commitment to providing technology so that customers can maintain safe building environments, healthy business operations and seamless occupant experiences.

The combination of the KT-1 one-door controller and Cloudvue Security Management allows organisations of all sizes to easily manage doors, users and schedules from any browser or mobile device. Users can receive intelligent alerts on real-time door activity from the integrated video surveillance and access control platform.

Cloudvue provides organisations with powerful intelligence that streamlines security, improves operational efficiency beyond security and integrates with the Johnson Controls OpenBlue digital platforms, a complete suite of connected solutions for sustainability, new healthy occupant experiences and safety and security solutions.

“The combination of the KT-1 and Cloudvue provides end users with multiple modes of operation to fit a variety of operational needs within the same organisation using a single door controller,” explained Scott Humphreys, senior product manager for Cloudvue at Johnson Controls. “The native integration offered between Kantech and Cloudvue ensures seamless operation and more robust feature sets for any access control configuration.”

KT-1 offers intuitive, cost-effective, cloud-based management capabilities. The Kantech KT-1 is available as a cloud-managed, Ethernet-ready, powered single-door controller with support for up to two readers for entry and exit control.

Connected to the Cloudvue Security Management cloud service, the KT-1 delivers advanced access control features with fully integrated cloud video surveillance options.

The KT-1 also offers the following features: Single touch button for fast and automatic controller enrolment, ‘plug and play’ installation, Power over Ethernet for flexible power input and highly secure 128-bit AES encryption.
