Access Control Manager Professional
Access Control Manager Professional supports access control installations of up to 32 reader licenses, to address the physical security needs of small to medium-sized sites. Intuitive and easy to use, ACM Professional simplifies security with a cost-effective, all-in-one appliance. Delivering powerful performance, ACM Professional is ideally suited for compact spaces and requires minimal power or IT infrastructure.
Avigilon Control Center Integration
Access Control Manager 5.2 also features a strengthened integration with the Avigilon Control Center software, deepening Avigilon’s end-to-end offering and enabling end-users to create a comprehensive security solution. Users of ACM and ACC can seamlessly monitor both video and access control events and alarms through a single platform, enabling quicker response times and more efficient management of building security. Avigilon’s Alarm Gateway technology allows users to intelligently manage and map alarms between both systems. With the added ability to link alarms to identity profiles stored in the system, administrators can create specifications, unique to their organization, for a deeper level of security.
