Since its inception, MiRO has focused on a strategy of providing the market with converged wireless technology solutions. By adding the AXXESS-E range of wireless access control solutions to its portfolio, the company’s vision of becoming the leading ICT Partner in southern Africa is one step closer.
According to Bertus van Jaarsveld, CEO at MiRO, the company’s appointment as a distributor for the AXXESS-E range of wireless access control solutions will provide its customers with further scope to expand their security portfolios. “We guarantee our customers that we will supply them with technology that is geared towards innovation and market best practice. We achieve this by handpicking the manufacturers and developers with whom we align ourselves. AXXESS-E, which is locally designed and developed, ticks all the boxes for us.”
Marco de Ru, CTO at MiRO, says due to its wireless nature, the AXXESS-E solution is quick and easy to deploy, provides considerable cost savings on wiring and cabling and is highly scalable. Using a Wiegand interface, the software seamlessly integrates with biometric card readers for full wireless functionality. In an industry that is dominated by hardwired access control systems, the technology is a welcome addition to available solutions. AXXESS-E also uses graphic-based software with customised reporting and time and attendance data exporting templates. The AXXESS-E system can manage up to 1 000 door controllers, each controlling two 600-kilogram Maglock doors, multiple tags and four readers. Using AES128 encryption and rolling code ensures secure transmission of data and the RF interface and jamming monitoring add further security benefits.
“One of the primary aims behind all of our product lines is to make life easier for our customers. Wireless, in particular, provides users with a number of tangible benefits. Topping the list is the elimination of hardwiring, which in turn results in reduced installation time and costs; the removal of the need to damage existing infrastructure due to the fact that no digging or chasing is required; and no interference with existing services. And, because AXXESS-E is locally developed, the turnaround time for delivery to our customers is fast and efficient,” Van Jaarsveld concludes.
