The NEXTOR Series access control system from e-datacollect of Coppell, Texas, is based on convergence and biometrics. The ability to network system controllers over an Ethernet allows expansion to an unlimited number of readers. With access control software embedded on the controller, no software installation is required. Users can administer, set up, and access system events through a Web browser. The Fingerprint Key is an affordable and reliable biometric reader that supports network template transfer between fingerprint readers, so users don’t need to enroll at each individual reader. When equipped with a proximity or smart-card reader, one-to-one credential verification is supported. The reader also includes keypad and proximity/smart-card options.
