NLSS Access Control Components
The NLSS Unified Security Software Suite provides integration with leading access control hardware vendors. NLSS Gateways support HID Edge IP hardware which provide PoE (power over Ethernet) connection allowing a single CAT-5 cable to power and operate a proximity card reader and lockset. NLSS Gateways also support ASSA ABLOY/Sargent wireless and PoE locksets to provide an easy all-in-one installation. Lastly, NLSS Gateways provide traditional access control hardware support with a full line of panels, card readers and equipment.
IP access control enables access control software to talk directly to an edge device through a network connection. As a result, access control is truly scalable. There is also a significant reduction in infrastructure cost because legacy hardware devices are no longer a necessary part of an installation.
The most significant benefit is investment protection. An IP access control solution ensures continuous software updates and therefore, provides an easier path to upgrades and expansion.
