Key features and functions of VAX Access Control Software

Advanced Mapping

  • Ability to create custom map-based interfaces that display physical placement of VAX devices, through which users can immediately call up associated data and video.
  • Map images can be imported and then populated with icons representing doors, elevators, inputs, outputs and cameras.
  • Unlimited number of maps can be linked to provide intuitive navigation between rooms or buildings using the arrow keys.

User Time Tracking Report

  • Provides a summary of total hours that specific individuals spent within a defined area.
  • Useful for identifying anomalies in employee behavior and can help identify employees or work areas that should be subjected to more comprehensive monitoring.

Action Control Engine

  • Global linking in your access control systems and allows simultaneous action executions and scalability limited only by the hardware it’s running on.
  • Mix and match over 40 customizable actions to create complex branching action plans to meet your business needs.
  • Variables and arithmetic operations with little programming or scripting knowledge required.
  • Flexible trigger engine allows you to trigger action plans from door, input, output state changes, or upon scheduled times.

Valerus VMS 1.2 Integration

  • Automatically link Valerus video clips with corresponding VAX Access Control events, and view them immediately within the VAX interface.  This integration is FREE to Valerus and VAX users, regardless of the number of cameras or card readers you have.
  • Video verification confirms that each swiping individual actually matches the card holder’s identity, make sure no piggy-backing entry occurs and receive alerts and see who is being “denied access” in real time.

Unmanaged Doors

  • Monitor doors that are not controlled by VAX. These doors are added in VAX as “Unmanaged” door type. The doors need to have the input from the door contact connected to an input on an IO-Board (VAX-IO-EXP8PCB). The IO-Board in turn is controlled by the I/O Master Controller panel (VAX-IO-STR). Unmanaged doors are not supported on VAX-1D or VAX-2D Controller panels.

Report Templates

  • Save selected report options in a template, which can be quickly recalled later. This saves you from having to reselect options when running a report.

Innovative Controller Architecture

  • Our distinctive VAX door controller was built with a patent-pending single-board design offering an embedded ‘Request to Exit’ motion sensor, status LEDs, on-board communications, back-up battery support and removable terminal blocks.
