GARDiS PRO Software


GARDis Access Control Unit Logo

Stepping up to provide the best solution to the latest security challenges, GARDiS Access Control Software is a browser-based application that provides the most cutting-edge solution in the market. Accessible through an internet browser, the GARDiS Software doesn’t require specialist equipment - providing cost-saving benefits to you. In addition, the reduced requirement for software configuration saves on time.

Both the design and development have been innovated by customer feedback, which specified a simple and straightforward platform that requires minimal training. GARDiS software delivers the same level of security insight as previous software solutions, however, the ability to update the firmware is now built-in to the GARDiS Software UI.

GARDiS runs as a service, working autonomously without the need for management. The intuitive nature of the software makes it easy to troubleshoot, reducing the chance of customers incurring call-out costs. Coupled with a reliable and robust design; the GARDiS software is a desirable offering that requires minimal training and maintenance.

GARDiS PRO has all the capabilities of the GARDiS EXpress software with the opportunity for optional module licenses to be added such as site lockdown, fire door release, lift control, ANPR, T&A, REST API, and 3rd party integrations.
