Progeny P2 Online Access Control System, Simple to Specify and install with easy to use free software
Connectivity is simplified to just two options: USB and IP Addressable (Ethernet). The P2 network then uses a single twisted pair to daisy chain controllers up to 1000 metres away. One controller per door with the option of card in/card out makes listing the equipment needed child’s play. Same cost credentials mean card or fob decisions can be made later.
Any competent installation engineer will be able to install this equipment without any special training. The wiring has been greatly simplified reducing the number of both cores and cables. The 3800 Progeny Crystal reader also mounts on a standard UK single gang back box, making first fix possible. Cabling costs can be reduced by wiring the egress button or switch along with the door contacts in to the back of the reader saving running multiple cables to the door controller.
The software has been carefully designed to be easy to use. A setup wizard will help you scan for any connected door controllers and then take you through registering the credentials. The credentials can be entered manually or simply presented to a reader. The wizard will then do all the rest of the work to get the credentials working. Standard Windows interface techniques have been used so that users will be able to start using the software with very little guidance.
Using a desktop reader can help with card manage-ment. For convenience, the 3803 USB interface has been designed to accommodate a reader.
Any system that can make use of the existing IP infra-structure offers cost savings, and reduced disruption during installation.
The programming of the ‘IP Address’ into the control-ler is simply done using the keyboard provided with the P2.net.
