VertX CS is an entirely new class of managed access controllers from HID. It represents a new central station access control model for security alarm dealers. When used with existing central station automation software (remote or local), VertX CS is a fully functional access control system that allows access control to be managed and monitored by the central station. There is no need for a separate access control system because the central station monitors can manage the whole facility: access control and alarm systems.
Access control through existing central station automation software is a more effective system and, more importantly, extremely cost-effective and easy for a business to add on. With VertX CS, the central station operator can see access control and alarm systems on one screen. This allows events to be responded to more quickly and efficiently.
Businesses will get all of the benefits of a fully-functional access control system, plus those that come from being managed by a central station monitoring company. For example, if someone forgets to lock up, all he has to do is call the central station and they can remotely lock the building. Also, configurations are available to install an unlimited number of doors, making it easy for a business to add more doors as it grows.
In summary, VertX CS is an access control solution that operates in a central station environment eliminating the need for a separate, stand-alone access control system either at a user's site or the central station. It provides all the benefits of a robust access control system, including the ability to run the same management and monitoring reports available with typical central station automation software. And, this is done without disrupting existing infrastructure enabling the alarm dealer to provide access control services where it was previously either too expensive, too complex or too labor intensive.
