eMerge 50 Access Control Platform
The entry-level system that is easy to use and easy to install. It contains all the powerful advantages of the eMerge platform, but in a smaller user configuration and without the advanced monitoring and video management bundles and other high-level features. It can be easily upgraded to grow with clients needs with no change in hardware.
The Integrated Security Platform contains the highlighted features below plus all the features and benefits of the Access Control Platform.
Alarm Panel Interface
eMerge can integrate with your burglar alarm panel to arm or disarm the burglar system when authorized access has been granted to your facility. You can program eMerge to automatically arm your burglar system if the facility has been left unsecured for a predetermined amount of time. You can also remotely arm or disarm the burglar system through eMerge.
Network Attached Storage (NAS) Back-Up
eMerge can create database backups each night to be stored in ROM onboard the network controller and written to Network Attached Storage. The system administrator also has the ability to create database backups at any time as well as to download to off board storage at any time. A restore of the database from a backup can be made from a backup copy on the network controller. It is therefore possible to upload a copy of a database backup from any Network Attached Storage. eMerge allows system administrators to review backups by date and description as well as to select the desired backup for upload to the network controller or restoration of the current database.
e-mail and Short Message Service (SMS)
eMerge supports the use of e-mail notifications of alarm events. Once the system administrator sets up the e-mail server IP address or DNS name and the e-mail address of the network controller, specified users can be notified of any alarm activity. It is also possible to enter a name and a description in the system for each alarm event.
An easy to use query language makes the creation of ad hoc reports simple and easy. Users can produce a variety of predefined reports regarding software and security hardware configuration, event history, and the administration of people within the system. Report generation does not affect the real-time operation of the system.
The network architecture and browser interface of eMerge allows users to easily configure and service the system from in the building, across town, or across the country, using any computer with a web browser. Remote service is now a reality, permitting your service technician to troubleshoot a system without needing to travel onsite to the installation.
Easy and complete management of all system users is accomplished from one screen including access levels, card assignments, photo ID, personal information and password protected access.
