netaccess is a comprehensive IP-based security management system. Based on Microsoft Windows®, netaccess
integrates Access Control, Alarm Monitoring, CCTV, Photo ID, Stadia, Data Management, Network Management
and much more. netaccess is powered by netaccess management software. At the heart of the supporting
hardware is the EVC Controller, which provides the base for additional modules.

A Changing World
In the late 1960s, Access Control Systems were
developed to control and monitor the access and
movement of personnel throughout buildings. CCTV
was rarely used, the Internet as we know it today was
but a dream, computers were in their infancy and
mobile phones belonged to science fiction. Since then, the
world and technology have experienced dramatic change.
Client expectations, together with the overall integration
of security solutions, have, subsequently, changed too.

The Modern Requirement
In the 21st century, security requirements encompass
many dynamic and integrated areas, including:
• Door access • Security alarms
• IT access • IT alarms
• Building control • Fire alarms
• Communications

 

The ability to manage and control these diverse and
integrated systems challenges today's system and
security designers. It is a necessity to provide integrated
response and monitoring.

netaccess 21st Century Security
netaccess provides a fully integrated security solution
capable of meeting this challenge. netaccess integrates
both traditional security systems, such as access control
and CCTV, with innovative computer access control and
monitoring, linked to modern IT and communications.
This dynamic 21st-century response system provides
today's system manager and user with an extensive
range of powerful alarm-management tools, incorporating
Operator Instruction, Computer Messaging, SMS, Email
and dynamic door/computer access.

Access Control
Providing flexible entry and egress control of doors, elevators,
gates and turnstiles with powerful schedule plans and distributed
intelligent remote controllers, netaccess Access Control
incorporates all elements a user would expect from a modern system
together with many innovative functions, such as User Holiday Plans
- where access is prevented for cardholders when
they are on holiday, and Security Level Allocation - where access
to an area can be set by group, individual rights or security level.

Visitor Management
All visitors can be logged into the Security System together with
images of the visitor and any supporting documents (ID, Passport
etc). Users can pre-book visitors, with the details appearing on
a day log in the reception/gatehouse.

Alarm Management
netaccess provides a flexible Alarm Management module, which
incorporates active graphics with zooming, prioritized alarm
display and operator programmed alarm response, combined with
system, communication and virtual action items.

 

Emergency Response Program (ERP)
With a continual threat of terrorism or major disruption, the
netaccess Disaster/Major Event control allows the systems
configuration or ERP to be changed and reinvented with just
one mouse click. ERP functionality allows the system
administrator to pre-program the Security System and IT
System Operation for a range of scenarios. Each scenario is set
up as a Master Plan and can be triggered automatically or
manually. The whole system will then operate according to
a new set of rules.
An example of this would be a fire alarm - the system could be
programmed to restrict fire wardens’ access to specific areas,
allow egress on all main doors, logoff all PC clients, flash
an ‘Evacuate’ warning message on all PCs, or logoff the user and
prevent access until the alarm event is cleared.


Computer Access Control
Securing an IT network and the physical building has always been
achieved through multiple systems. This reduces functionality and
is open to abuse. netaccess is able to monitor users throughout
a building, authorize login to a PC and provide an automatic
logoff once a user leaves the site. Using this module, the system can
control and log usage of all PC clients on the network and link
this to door access control. With the Computer Access flag
checked, any PC user must have entered the building via Access
Control prior to logging on. Upon leaving the building, if the user
has forgotten to logoff, the system would automatically logoff.
Internet access can be restricted to certain times of the day
and switched on/off as part of any security event.

Time & Attendance
T&A reporting and specific attendance, reports can be generated
detailing on-site and off-site times and hours totaled for the
report period. Using Access Mode Codes, specific codes can be
assigned to events, such as ‘going to lunch’. Specific exception
reports can also be generated; for example, to detail any user who
worked in excess of 48 hours between given periods.

Guard Tour
Online or remote reader points can be predetermined on the
system with programmed tours. Deviation from route or a delay in
reaching specific points can be programmed to generate alarms.
Variable ‘forgive’ times can be configured and a range of ‘tours’
allocated to specific guards or shifts. Associated system technology
tours can be configured including CCTV and offline reader tag points
(proximity or active).

Contractor Management
Specific contractors can be set up on asset items and reports
generated to gauge their performance in terms of maintenance
and repair times on listed faults.

Room/Computer Booking
Meeting rooms or computers can be pre-booked for a specific
user or groups at set times. An option is available to allow
booking via a client’s intranet, and also to show availability.
When allocated a room or computer, access will only be granted
to the authorized person or group.

Operator Management
Full operator division is configurable on the system, whereby an
operator will only be allowed to logon at pre-set times and
manage within their privilege rights. All operator actions
are stored on the system, which means specific operator reports
can be generated.

Communication Action Items
A range of pre-programmed communication messages can be
set up and allocated to events/alarms according to time of
day/day of week etc. The message format can include email,
SMS, pager etc. For example, in the event of a Tamper Alarm
being set off, an automatic email could be sent to the security
controller and a text message to the site engineer.

Regional Servers
The system supports peer-to-peer servers, allowing local
and/or remote server connection. In the event that the
remote server fails, local control would still be available.

Multi Language Support
Multiple languages can be configured on the system so that
each language module, event or system message can be
configured to the appropriate language. Operators are set up
with a ‘home’ language so that all messages will appear on
their terminal in their designated language. In addition, where
LCD panels are used with readers, the system will recognize
a card according to the cardholder’s language and display the
Access Message in the local language.

Elevator Control (Low or High Level)
Elevators can be configured on the system and controlled via
either relay panels or RS232/RS485 (high level). A cardholder
presents their card in the lift car, and only floors where
the cardholder’s access rights are valid will be accessible.

Engineering Mode
Each unit on the system can be set to Engineer mode, with
alarms enabled or disabled (sent to engineer log only). This
function prevents hundreds of alarms being generated during
routine or specific maintenance.
