Fingerprints for Keyless Entry

Networkable & Addressable

With the EntryGuard™ AC-300, FaceKey™ has made access control easier, more economical and secure for clients. The reader can be programmed to open a door with a fingerprint only or in combo with an embedded Mifare card reader. Incased in a metal case, the unit carries the IP65 rating. Wiegand input connectivity is available as an option.

When a new worker is added to the access control system, the FaceKey security system encrypts each fingerprint and stores it into a database. The AC-300 may be networked with the FaceKey’s™ EntryGuard DMS Software or the Shepherd Door Management Software, which is sold separately, or deployed as a standalone unit without management software. Additional units of the AC-300 can be added as a business expands its operations.

The AC-300 is a cost effective biometric solution as a primary access control system or to retrofit an existing access control system. The AC-300 supplies a Wiegand 26-bit signal, which allows the addition of a reader to a third-party security platform where a biometric device is required.

Recognition occurs at the AC-300 (door). The FaceKey™ EntryGuard or Shepherd Software creates a typical IP network server and client configuration which is easy to install and operate. Data collected at the AC-300 is automatically uploaded to the server, while data or configurations made at the network level, such as the addition or deletion of a user, may be selectively distributed to each door unit. In the event that communication with the network fails, the AC-300 will continue to operate and collect data, up to 100,000 events, which will be uploaded when communication with the server is reestablished.

The AC-300 has a full array of features (see Benefits and Features and Technical Specifications) and offers an extensive choice of time zones and alarm functions. For installations where access requires the identification of more than one person, the unlock combo feature will allow the system to request the fingerprints of up to five persons, one from each group, before access is granted.
