IP Controllers At The Door

Hello, aside from Infinias, are there any other IP based controllers that get installed at the door?

Open Options, based on the Mercury system

Oh, right.

In my defense... Uh... Well... I guess I just didn't read all the posts :)

Look two posts above you!

I'm surprised no one has mentioned ISONAS, they are pretty big in that regard.

Sargent/Persona has a nice POE and a nice Wireless (wifi) IP-based lock. We have quite a few of each.

Disclaimer: I work at a university, not a manufacturer.

I have used Isonas IP based controllers/readers, but I found the management software clunky and poorly designed.

Paxton Access has IP connected single door controllers that can be placed at doors. There's also Isonas who was making a big marketing push awhile back. I have not used either.

Aside from HID, Mercury has one of the only other open platform controllers, the EP1501. They also have the MR51e, which is not a controller (limited processing on board), but an Ethernet door interface. So you'd address multiple MR51e's back to an EP1501 for control.

On the proprietary side, most of the majors have a PoE controller, now, like Honeywell's NetAXS-123, and the S2 MicroNode.

Hello Kendall:

There are several products in this segment. We've done updates on a number of them, including:

I hope this helps!
