HID Global announced that its network access control solutions and contactless readers have been selected by Shenyang Transformer Group Co. Ltd. in China to enable access level settings and area control to prevent unauthorized entry.
The access control solution is interoperable with the plant’s existing credentials and integrates with a range of hardware and management software from other deployments. The solution leverages Shenyang existing network investment to provide a centralized, Web-based access control system that provides central monitoring, report generation, the ability to establish staff access level settings and visitor management.
Featuring dispersed entry points throughout a 720,000 square meters industrial park, Shenyang deployed HID Global’s VertX V1000 network controllers, VertX V100 door/reader interfaces, iCLASS R10 and iCLASS R30 contactless smart card readers to safeguard the plant’s factory, R&D building, administrative offices, elevators, mixed working areas and key equipment rooms.
The new system achieves cost savings by enabling additional deployments such as time and attendance, remote area control and visitor management while supporting the factory’s existing MIFARE credentials. Additionally, the solution can integrate with sub-systems such as surveillance and fire control systems for area control and safety management.
