The Bosch Access Professional Edition 3.0 Software with Basic License provides self-contained access control for small and medium-sized companies. It eliminates the need to install and administer a database system. The system is easy to install and use, and enables a person with minimal training to create badges and administer access rights in a very short time. Specific event logging and reporting allows you to trace who was when and where on your company’s grounds.
You can choose your readers and cards from the same bundle of devices, which are supported by Bosch’s medium to large scale BIS/ACE Access Engine systems, thereby safeguarding your investment for future extensions. Card personalization is included in Access PE, providing you with the means to design your badges to perform image acquisition with USB cameras and to use most commercially available card printers.
In addition to given standardized door models, it is possible to use extended I/O functionality to exert influence on diverse conditions while monitoring inputs or setting outputs. The Access PE offers a map viewer, which provides a graphical representation of the premises with device control directly from the map (e.g., doors opened or cameras activated). Alarm events are queued in a list and are easily located with the support of navigation maps and animated icons.
The Access PE can be extended with a Video System on purchase of an additional license. Through integrated video functionality and using the wide range of Bosch IP devices (available separately), an operator, for example, can do a video verification by comparing live streams with the database image of the person requesting for access. The Access PE alarm list shows all incoming alarms to the operator. In case of an alarm, the location map will be displayed. The icon of the device that triggered the alarm is highlighted by animation. Access PE runs on a standard PC with a Windows operating system (Windows 2008 Server, 7, XP SP2 Professional). This can be a single workstation computer or a client-server system with a central server and remote workstations.
