Soyal's access control system is a modern, reliable and very cost-effective access control system.
It is equally able to meet the needs of small installations comprising a single access point, or those of medium-sized installations with several dozens of access points like doors, barriers, turnstiles etc.
The system software allows you to manage centrally several installations in various locations, through a network.
Soyal Access Control software runs on Windows and it is very easy to use.
Atermon Systems SA has substantial experience in Soyal access control system installations. Atermon has carried out successfully numerous Soyal system installations, which is an ideal, cost-effective solution for small- and medium-sized installations, which seek a reliable, yet basic,access controlsystem.
Soyal access control consists of the following:
1. Access Controlreaders. We offer a wide range of Access Control readers able to meet all demands, such as:
- Indoor/outdoor RFID readers
- RFID and keyboard readers
- Biometric fingerprint readers
- Vandal-resistant readers
4. Special Access Controllers.
Soyal access controllers are integrated control devices serving as intermediary devices between the Access Control readers and software. Depending on its type, each controller controls from 1 up to 16 Access Control readers. All access rights information (access rights and restrictions) relating to each Access Control reader controlled by each IDT controller is transmitted to the latter.
Controllers are independent units which ensure smooth system operation even where communication with the system software is disrupted for any reason or cause.
3. System software.
The Soyal system software integrates all basic functionalities of a modern access control system and it is extremely reliable and user-friendly.
Soyal Access Control runs on Windows.
4. Proximity IDs in the form of cards or key tags.
Soyal access control system readers are fully compatible with the most broadly used RFID proximity IDs such as 125 Khz and Mifare.
The systemsoftware is installed on a Server together with all other software tools required in each installation.
The Access Control readers are installed on and connected to the electric door locks they are intended to control. The readers may also be connected directly to turnstiles, vehicle access barriers, security doors etc. They are then connected through cabling to the respective controllers.
The controllers are connected to the system software through a network (Ethernet TCP/IP) or through a serial RS-485 interface.
The next step, after all hardware and software has been installed, is to enter in the system software the details of each member of staff and the access rights and limitations applicable to each member of staff and each door controlled by the system, and to parameterise the software based on the needs of each installation. Once these tasks are completed, the system is ready for use.
Once the system is put to operation, access to all controlled spaces is only possible through authorised use of the Soyal access system.
To enter the controlled premises, staff and visitors need to use their special proximity IDs or those and a keyboard. Where this required by the nature of the installation, access may be also controlled by means of special biometric terminals, which offer top security standards in terms of human identification.
Every attempt to enter the premises controlled by the system is automatically checked by the respective IDT controller. If the person trying to enter has authorised access, the system unblocks the door or turnstile allowing the person to enter, and at the same time records this action in the Controller's memory. In case of unauthorised access, the Access Control reader transmits an audiovisual signal indicating restricted entry and records the attempted entry in the controller's memory, and may even transmit an alarm signal, if programmed accordingly.
Soyal access is essentially required in any installations where access control is required. Some categories of establishments which could benefit from the system are:
- Office installations
- Archive facilities
- Computer Rooms
- Club houses
- Military installations
