Pertaining to the growing demand and security concerns, access control has always been vital for every organization. The main objective of Access Control is to protect physical, IP and human assets. This requires restricting unauthorized people from reaching pre-defined areas. Moreover, the basic question of who, where and when with adequate flexibility and scalability needs to be addressed with an access control solution. To meet this requirement, Matrix COSEC presents an adaptive, modular, scalable and function-rich Access Control solution. It is designed to meet access control needs of any organization irrespective of its size, locations, layouts and timings. In addition, a range of value-added features like Anti-Pass back, 2-Person Rule, First-In User, Blocked Users, Door Auto Re-Lock, Guard Tour, Man-Trap and Smart Card based Identification ensures foolproof security of physical assets and safety of manpower.
There are instances where in an unauthorized person punches for access. Access control is the most widely used solution across corporates to restrict such unauthorized access. To restrict unauthorized access, Access Zone is a pre-defined physical area for which specific access policies are required. Matrix COSEC controls who (user) goes where (access zone) and when (time) for each Access Zone. Using this feature, employee of one department can be restricted from entering another department. Similarly, time based access policies can be assigned to a zone.
With the growing demand of avoiding security threats and need for centralized control, comes the requirement of implementing reliable and highly scalable access control system. Matrix provides rich, web based functionality that one can access from anywhere. Matrix Access Control system caters the need of all types of organizations, irrespective of their size. It is an IP based architecture with less wiring and supports up to 65,000 devices and one million users.
For today’s critical infrastructure sites, advanced access control solutions are becoming increasingly valuable. Matrix provides high-end advanced access control features such as First-In User, 2-Person Rule, Dead-Man Zone, Anti-Pass Back, Man-Trap that yields additional security for sensitive zones.
SMS and Email notifications on any access policy violation and advanced access control features help in taking proactive action before an incident occurs. To have a proper track of access control system, admin or security requires notifications. Matrix COSEC facilitates with SMS and E-mail notifications for attendance, leave and access related events.
Matrix Access Control solution is explicitly built on an open platform that can be easily integrated with any third-party hardware such as Fire Alarm and Video Surveillance. It becomes critical during an untoward incident like sudden fire, where everyone has to be safely evacuated from the premises. Integration of Fire Alarm and Video Surveillance enables the fire alarm to generate a trigger in case of any mishap. This trigger will immediately open all the doors and start recording the event. Similarly, it provides reliably secure integration with Turnstile, Boom Barrier, Tripod and other such access gates. Hence, Matrix provides tighter integration for value-added functions and enhanced security.
