Videx expands digital door entry panel range with development of 4212 model

Videx has introduced a new series of digital door entry panels for end users complete with advanced features designed to strengthen building access control regimes.

The 4212 panel is vandal resistant and best suited to student accommodation, business establishments and housing association properties. It adds to the existing Videx range of digital door panels but carries better, more advanced features. It’s also Secured by Design accredited.

Steve Natton, special projects manager at Videx, explained: “The 4212 includes many new features, among them a graphical LCD screen which displays text and intuitive icons during the calling process. The voice annunciation feature verbally guides the visitor through the process of calling. What’s more, the backlit keypad with piped number 5 key not only allows the keypad to be used when lighting is poor but also aids visually impaired visitors, making it fully compliant with the Disability Discrimination guidelines stipulated under the Terms and Conditions of the Equality Act 2010.”

Further features include an integrated wide angle (155°) 570k pixel camera and proximity reader.

The 4212 includes access for up to 2,800 codes. Proximity access can be self-contained for up to 2,800 users or the integral reader can be used with the Portal Plus access control system or third party access control supporting the Wiegand protocol.

Natton continued: “The 4212 carries a number of features that makes the door entry system a lot easier to use, helping manage access control on a better footing. For example, the name scroll facility enables a more seamless approach to entry. The wide-angle day/night camera includes infrared illumination and will automatically switch from colour to grey scale in poor lighting conditions to give a crisper image. Programming can be carried out using either the keypad and LCD display or through the USB port and PC software. The PC software enables all programming and management of the door panel while also allowing a custom logo to be imported and displayed on the LCD display. When using the proximity access control facility in self-contained mode, the PC software will also allow a USB desk mount proximity reader to be connected to simplify the adding of new proximity fobs and cards.”

The panels are available in flush or surface variants and in the standard vandal resistant form or in the 4000 Series frame.

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”.
