Built-in Access Control Integration

The first truly unified VMS + Access Control Platform

IP Access Control

Our Unified Platform provides fully integrated Access Control and VMS in the same product

The NLSS Platform includes a fully integrated IP-access control system giving users one interface for both of these critical functions.  Users can access and interface with the system from anywhere that they have access to the internet.  Our unified platform simplifies the installation process by incorporating auto-discovery and auto-provisioning for access control edge devices into its core capabilities. Additionally, a complete cardholder database with badge creation and printing tools are included at no extra cost.

NLSS Access Control Components

Integration with leading access control hardware vendors
The NLSS Unified Security Software Suite provides integration with the world’s leading access control manufacturers.  NLSS Gateways support IP-based access control hardware, which provides PoE (power over Ethernet) over a single CAT-5/6 cable to control card readers and lock sets.  

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, proprietary hardware devices are no longer a necessary part of an installation.
