Security and IT work together in the IP-based Focal Point Security Program from Access Specialties International of St. Paul, Minnesota. The simple, scalable program uses IP access control for alarm monitoring, building-automation control, and distributed intelligence. The program supports HID’s Edge product line. Ideal for small- to mid-sized businesses, it operates on single or multiple workstations and doesn’t require special hardware. It stores up to 44,000 cards or credentials, controls and powers all access devices at the door, and offers unlimited user-definable fields. It supports cardholder images, handicapped features, operator routing, and access control exceptions.
