2 DOOR OR 4 DOOR CONTROLLERS?

Which is best?  A two reader access control panel or a four reader access control panel?

Answer: YES

If you need two readers, a two reader controller is best.  If you need four readers, a four reader controlller is best.

The MAP1 Modular Access Panel provides a simple solution to this problem.  A standard MAP1 can be provisioned for two readers or four readers.  The MSRP when provisioned for two readers is $1,083  When provisioned for four readers the MSRP is $2,000.  You can even upgrade a two door MAP1 to a four door MAP1 in the field for MSRP $1,000 - no additional controller hardware required.  Simply load the new provisioning code into the MAP1 and you are done.

In addition to being provisioned for the number of readers supported, the MAP1 can be provisioned to work with Cansec's Cloud Lock subscription based service or Cansec's First Access software (a traditional client/server solution.

With the magic of provisioning, one size does fit all.

The unrestricted use of dangerous machinery on the shop floor constitutes a significant liability issue for employers as evidenced by a $190K fine paid by Walmart in August 2013 for, amongst other things, “unsafe trash compactor procedures”. Under the settlement, trash compactors must remain locked while not in use, and may not be operated except under the supervision of a trained manager or other trained, designated monitor.

Clearly, hanging a sign on a piece of dangerous shop floor equipment which says “To be used by authorized personnel only” is not adequate.

Access systems have been used for many years to manage physical access to restricted areas. However, they can also provide a cost effective means of insuring that dangerous machinery is only used by trained and authorized operators.
