Johnson controls releases ioSmart cloud readers

This release from Johnson controls introduces the new Tyco Kantech ioSmaty readers with bluetooth technology. These new readers support traditional PVC cards and fobs, all with the cloud managed access solution reliability and a single access control reader line for greater installation flexibility.

Customers can use ioSmart readers with panel-based access control installations to complement or replace their legacy PVC card and fob strategy with smartphone-based mobile credentials. ioSmart mobile credentials not only provide a superior solution for long range access control applications, but additionally allow administrators to easily issue and revoke personnel credentials remotely without needing to manage physical card or fob stock inventory. Companies can now securely allow personnel to conveniently access facilities using their smartphones without the security risk of lost, stolen or cloning of legacy card or fob technologies.

More than just a reader, ioSmart additionally provides low-cost keyless entry by supporting panel-less access control operation for offline door applications where panel-based architectures are cost prohibitive in a variety of vertical markets, including in education, commercial, healthcare, and retail sectors.

ioSmart readers provide lock output control that can be wired to any door strike, mag lock or gate for smartphone-based mobile access using cloud managed smart keys. In panel-less operation, ioSmart readers do not require any local network connectivity and provide cloud managed access control for mobile users even when Wi-Fi and cellular networks are out of service.

ioSmart mobile credentials and smart keys are securely managed with Tyco Cloud services and delivered to Kantech EntraPass go Pass mobile app users for a seamless access control experience.

Tyco Cloud is a single suite of video surveillance and access control application services that help customers move costly and complex security infrastructure to the cloud.
