Bosch Security Systems has introduced a new version of its popular access control software for small and medium enterprises, the Access Professional Edition (APE) 3.0. The main new features of APE 3.0 are the integrated map viewer support and even more flexible enrollment options.
The integrated map viewer in APE 3.0 highly increases the situational awareness in case of an alarm and can be combined with video surveillance for an even better overview.
The software supports easy navigation between floor plans and photo views via hyperlinks. Interactive graphical maps with integrated alarm lists allow the operator to quickly analyze any alarm situation and take appropriate action.
APE 3.0 supports up to 128 maps per system and is thus ideally suited for growing companies and organizations.
The map viewer is easy to set up and allows operators to control entrances and view live images directly from the map. Devices with pre-configured device associations and control commands can be added to the map via simple drag & drop. The map viewer uses standard image formats such as .bmp, .jpg, and .png.
The new version of APE offers flexible enrollment solutions. Readers attached to the Access Modular Controller (AMC) can be used for the enrollment of all card technologies and allows for flexible end-to-end solutions.
For selected technologies, APE 3.0 also supports comfortable enrollment via readers which are directly connected to the operator workstation via USB.
