TDSi has announced the launch of MICROgarde IP, further expanding its proven and popular range of controllers. Available for both one and two door controller options, MICROgarde IP offers all the functionality of the established MICROgarde system, but with the added benefit of being able to be directly connected to a LAN or WAN.
Supplied with free Windows®-based software, MICROgarde offers an extremely cost-effective, entry level range of controllers which contains many of the features that would ordinarily be found only in much larger and more expensive systems.
MICROgarde controllers feature distributed intelligence and can operate as a fully integrated part of a system network, providing users with full control and event reporting - which may be customised to include specific search and sort criteria for easy auditing.
This highly effective system delivers a wide range of operational and performance benefits. Operating with TDSi or other third party readers, the controller has an operational capacity of 5,000 card holders and is capable of supporting up to 200 doors - as well as controlling the automatic release of fire doors, upon an active input. Compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act is assured by the system’s ability to extend lock times to suit individual needs.
Supplied in a robust housing, MICROgarde is easy to install, maintain and manage, without the need for specialist training. The system provides a fully automatic backup and each unit features optional input/ output modules which allow other devices and systems, such as intruder alarms, to be controlled and monitored.
Commenting on the launch, TDSi’s Managing Director, John Davies, said: “Building on the proven success of MICROgarde, we’re delighted to add this IP option to our range. Priced highly competitively, MICROgarde IP delivers an effective, easy to use and fully expandable solution which, when used with our established access management system, EXgarde PRO also provides easy integration capabilities”.
