Airport Access Control

- SAFE for Aviation from Quantum Se­­cure of San Jose, California, is an airport physical identity and access management solution that streamlines the lifecycle of physical identities and automates related processes. SAFE for Aviation comes with pre-defined policies, workflows, and procedures for issuing badge credentials and granting and revoking access to airport facilities while simplifying adherence to airport-related regulations, audits, and security directives, thus minimizing insider threats and promoting greater operational security. The solution has been deployed in airports, including Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport

Door Solution

- A new access control solution that operates via mobile protocol is available from Urmet of Great Notley, United Kingdom. Intercom units use a SIM card for communication and ac­­cess control. When activated, a call is established to a predesignated number—either a landline or a mobile phone—creating a line of communication and enabling the user to open up to two access points. The door unit consists of a door panel, antenna, and power supply and will work with a SIM card from any operator. Installation is quick and there is no need for additional cabling to the unit.

Door Control Software

- Secura Key of Chatsworth, California, has introduced SK-NET Version 5.1, which supports the new NOVA.16 16-door control panel. The control panel creates a new system architecture, reduces cabling and installation costs, and facilitates system expansion. The NOVA.16 uses RS-485 to interconnect the new smart readers, which contain all inputs and outputs to control and monitor a single door. SK-NET 5.1 also supports new features in the SK-ACPE two-door control panel, such as built-in network connectivity and battery monitoring. The software is backward-compatible with legacy control panels. The included SK LAN Installer enables users to scan the entire network and locate all connected Secura Key control panels.


- Open Options of Carrollton, Texas, has released DNA Fusion V6. The new software features Flex API, an application programming interface for external applications. It can manage access control security via Apple and Android smartphones, as well as through the Web. The software offers support for the Schlage Handkey II geometry reader and a direct interface for the new Bioscrypt 4G Series readers. It also offers wireless intelligent lock interfaces with ASSA ABLOY WiFi and PoE locks, ASSA ABLOY Aperio, and Salto Wireless locks, and it provides extended features for Schlage AD Series wireless locks.
