The TDSi solution featured 15 EXcel4 network controllers, 42 EXprox2 readers, and the company’s EXgarde Pro advanced access control management system.
Since EXcel4 features an in-built TCP/P port, the connection of the controller to the existing network is easy and makes for simple installation and commissioning.
EXgarde Pro was already in operation at the RYA’s headquarters; however, the installation at Portland House necessitated a redesign of the software to enable the two sites (with four separate buildings) to be seamlessly networked.
The EXgarde software also allowed data to be shared between the RYA and WPNSA, allowing designated staff and members at each site to be given access to all locations with just a single card. CSG had also installed a TDSi system at WPNSA so both sites are now linked with a common network, sharing installation data between them and significantly reducing the amount of data entry required across the two organisations.
