Dahua’s TMAC integration with PAC access control helps keep workplaces safe

PAC has produced an integration guide for Dahua’s Thermal Monitoring Access Control (TMAC) terminal to allow easy checking of an individual’s temperature as well as confirmation that a face mask is being worn when someone’s entering a building or any area secured by PAC access control. This integration guide is for use in the UK, Europe and the APAC region.

As businesses continue to adapt to the current COVID-19 measures, building managers need technology to help them enhance the safety of building occupants. In conjunction with other measures and procedures, and as part of an overall strategy, thermal monitoring and automated face mask detection presents an additional method for controlling security and adherence to safety measures by visitors to a given building.

PAC’s long-standing tradition of security integration with Time and Attendance, CCTV monitoring and other building and occupancy control services is now extended to the Dahua TMAC terminal, which has the functionality to check a person’s temperature and determine if a face mask is being worn when they’re entering a building or specific area.

This integration with Dahua’s TMAC allows access rights for individuals to be dynamically managed. By taking an output from the Dahua TMAC into the PAC access control system, access rights can be withdrawn for anyone not meeting the safety standards required to gain entrance.

Integrators will find set-up simple, with only some basic wiring and a few configuration settings within the Dahua TMAC required in order for the system to be ready and active. For end users, access control list set-up and management are also easy with a single access control system provided for the management of all secured areas and entrances.

Multifactor authentication supports the Dahua temperature and mask checking functionality before being able to use the PAC access control ID device to unlock the secured entrance.

A single keyholder database enables the clear demarcation of building controls as the PAC access control system is used for all access control and the Dahua TMAC is effectively employed as an added check for temperature and mask wearing.

Steve Riley appointed in key sales role for PAC-GDX and 3XLOGIC brands

Steve Riley has been appointed in key sales role for PAC-GDX and 3XLOGIC brands. Formerly with Risco for over seven years, industry stalwart Riley has joined the organisation with an ambition to grow market share across all brands by adding value to security solutions in the form of business intelligence.

On his new role, Riley commented: “It’s a very exciting time to be joining this organisation because we have several exciting product launches planned. I see so much potential in the integration of our brands and the resulting ability to offer solutions that very few companies can provide.”

He continued: “By harnessing the secure data which is on board many security systems already out in the field, we can provide valuable insights for end users, such as tracking how, when and where people move around buildings. This is the sort of information that can really assist with everything from COVID-19 procedures to energy savings.”

Riley will also be re-shaping and re-energising the organisation’s channel engagement, developing new distribution partnerships and relationships with system integrators here in the UK and across Europe.

“Some of our brands have been associated with certain market sectors to date and they have dominated those sectors,” asserted Riley, “but interoperability across our brands and calibrating the right products to suit the application means that our security installers and system integrators can target any kind of business from SMEs right the way up to enterprise-level plcs.”

Welcoming Riley to the fold, Bill Hobbs (global sales leader for all brands) enthused: “Steve has joined us on the brink of huge growth potential for the company and his energy and management skills are a welcome addition at this exciting time.”

Norbain offers customers new PAC 212 two-door standalone controller

Norbain can now offer customers the new PAC 212 two-door standalone controller. Suitable for commercial applications, the PAC 212 is built around the PAC 500 controller series and offers end users many of the standard features associated with this range.

Designed to offer a versatile solution and cater for different applications, the PAC 212 allows for up to 2,000 users to be administered via the built-in reader in both versions of the controller: the legacy Low Frequency (LF) and high security High Frequency (HF) format.

It’s a true two-door controller which allows for two PAC readers to be connected per channel. The controller has also been designed to programme ID credentials, rendering it ideal for commercial applications.

Due to the simplicity of the system, programming of additional ID credentials can be carried out in less than ten seconds following just three simple steps with an instant activation of the new IDs.

Ideal for upgrading legacy systems that require enhanced access features, the PAC 212 Controller is suitable for any security application where flexibility, building protection and local control are of paramount importance.

When used in conjunction with any PAC HF or MT readers and PAC’s Ops credentials, the PAC 212 provides AES-128 bit certified security which dramatically reduces the risk of token cloning, in turn increasing security and minimising the threat of unauthorised access.

The controller offers a wide choice of configuration options such as time profiles, PIN and Prox, controller and reader tamper protection and additional features (often found only in online controllers) like programmable extra door time and local Anti- Passback.

Moreover, for increased security and accountability, the controller is capable of holding up to 4,000 events and token information in its memory. With the built-in USB port, exporting this information is “easy and effortless”.
