It is available in two versions: The free Express version for basic access control functions and Advanced for more complex applications. Both support up to 1,024 readers and 100,000 cards. NEW - First Access Advanced software now support the Cansec MSM app which allows you to control and manage your system from anywhere.

To facilitate deployment, First Access software automatically scans the local network and finds all connected MAP controllers. No need to assign each panel a static IP address. Using the First Access Client software, operators can quickly and easily void and validate credentials, edit Unlock Schedules, Holiday Schedules, Access Profiles, etc.


Everything required to make GO/NO-GO decisions is stored at the controller, guaranteeing a fast and consistent response regardless of the system size, network speed or server load.
