Without the need for hard wiring to a central control unit or central server, IP-based systems enable installations that are non-proprietary, flexible and scalable. This means not only a more versatile solution, but also a more cost efficient one. Freed from the constraints of enlarging the system in certain multiples, a network-based system can be enlarged – should it be necessary – by one door and one reader at a time.
Lower total costs
IP solution with network switch. The controllers are placed at each door with cabling to door accessories.
An IP edge solution has one controller for each door, which then is connected to the local network through a regular network switch. Since IP networks now are ubiquitous in offices, stores, factory plants and similar facilities, the cost of adding an IP-based door controller is minimal, as opposed to the multiple serial connections required when wiring back to a central server.
Cabling work can be even further facilitated with an IP system. By employing a PoE (Power over Ethernet) supported controller at each door, the need for a separate power cable is eliminated. Thus the total installation cost is reduced.
An IP-based solution makes implementation and integration of access control systems far more feasible. Integration with video is one example of a very common requirement which is much easier to meet with IP-based solutions.
In fact, a common, standardized digital environment has the potential to create countless opportunities to integrate other systems such as intrusion detection and, fire detection into uniform, manageable and user-friendly systems.
Possible integrations between an IP-based physical access control system, a network video surveillance system, and other IP-based third party applications.
