The WinAC.NET includes a wide range of time and money-saving features, such as:

  • Access Control Profiles easily created or customised to suit your particular site, and can be varied minute-by-minute
  • Real-time (near) graphical display shows doors being opened/closed, those with alarm status set and forced entry
  • Doors may be configured to open automatically on fire alarms and lock automatically on burglar alarms
  • Anti-pass back facility limits the same card being used by more than one person
  • CCTV tracking of video clips showing 'evidence quality' footage of forced entries, alarm events, users of smart cards gaining access or being denied
  • Door/barrier access can be limited depending on the persons’ roll call status
  • Resilient system keeps running even when certain cables are cut or damaged or PC networks fail
  • Sensor monitoring to detect forced entry
  • Audit trail showing who gained access (or denied) at any location at any time
  • Biometric dermal fingerprint reading for maximum security and personnel authentication
  • Hardware device manager allows easy adding and editing of hardware device profiles

With our access control software you can be assured that you will receive a simple to use, highly secure way of controlling access to areas or buildings, as well as monitoring who is present 24 hours a day.

Additional features are available for the WinAC.NET Business/Enterprise editions which can be implemented on your access control system to take into account diversity with access rules between individual organisations.
