CORVALLIS, OR -- Videx will introduce the latest extension to its CyberLock Flex System at the upcoming ASIS International (formerly American Society for Industrial Security) trade show. ASIS 2011 is set for the Orange County Convention Center (Orlando, FL) from Sept. 19 through 22.
Making its debut at the show will be the Flex System Door and I/O Module. According to Videx, a principal attraction of this system is its ability to extend the benefits of Videx's "key-centric" CyberLock concept to hardwired door control systems.
The company reports that this can expand the capabilities of legacy hardwired door controls. A Flex Door and I/O Module installation can be done at a fraction of the expense of replacing all, or even part of, an original system, Videx said. With the Flex System Door and I/O Module, the owner of such a legacy system can affordably gain all the access features of the CyberLock system, such as swift communications, location graphics, pre-programmed access scheduling by the door and the person, audit reporting of key activity and lock openings, email alerts, and more, the company explained.
The company rolled out its CyberLock Flex family of access modules to bridge the gap between traditional wired access controls and Videx's key-centric security solutions.
What is exciting about the new Door and I/O Module is its ability to activate a variety of relay-based devices, from electric door strikes to security cameras and remote alarms that prompt a security response. In addition, it can receive input from Request to Exit (RTE) and Wiegand-compatible access devices as well as door sensors.
The enabling technology is the CyberLock Flex System Hub that communicates between the Flex System modules, other input and output devices, and the system software. According to Videx, the robust software structure includes built-in communications for interoperating not only with the Flex System access modules, but other Wiegand card-controlled access devices and existing hardwired systems.
