The EdgeConnector starter kit includes everything needed to install an integrated, real-time door access solution based on Active Directory.
The included EdgeConnector EH400K In-only controller comes with all the software needed to fully integrate into your existing Windows networking environment, enabling the management of doors, access rights and ID cards without the need for any additional databases or systems.
The EdgeConnector software runs as a service, typically on an existing Active Directory domain controller, and processes door access requests, as well as updating user locations and security group memberships, in real-time. This enables various converged security applications including location-based logon restriction and global anti-passback.
The EdgeConnector EH400K controller can be powered using PoE (Power over Ethernet) or via an external power supply. It is designed to control access to a single door, and has a standard Weigand interface suitable for connecting most makes and models of door access readers. Other interfaces include door sensor and request-to-exit button inputs, and a door relay that can be used to control door strikes and mag-locks, using either PoE or external power. The controller can be expanded to IN/OUT operation at any time, using an additional Weigand reader interface module.
The starter kit includes:
- EdgeConnector EH400K In-only Controller
- HID R10 reader – suitable for reading iClass or MIFARE CSN
- Monitored mag-lock with universal bracket set (for most wooden doors)
- Push to exit button
- Resettable ‘break-glass’ switch
- Omnikey 5321 with Read-a-Card inside (desktop USB card reading solution)
- 5 x MIFARE 1K cards
- Multicore cable, installation instructions and wiring diagrams
An EdgeConnector system can be expanded to any number of doors and users simply by adding EdgeConnector controllers (one per door). Photo capture is included for free – card printing can be enabled by purchasing a suitable printing license.
