Want an Access Control Solution that Doesn’t Lock You In?
Discover DNA Fusion, the Open Access Control Platform
Commercial software products are built to solve specific problems. Long ago, almost all of them were highly proprietary and would connect or work only with products from the same vendor. When IT departments looked at solutions, they would standardize around a single vendor in a given area to avoid an assortment of solutions that didn't play well together, if at all.
Access control solutions tended to be this way; they would only work with other security software from the same vendor. Open Options Access Technology, based just up the road from Waco in Addison, Texas, set out to change that with a philosophy of developing an open access control system platform that integrates easily with other solutions such as video surveillance and many more.
Read on to learn more about DNA Fusion and their open approach to security management systems.
DNA Fusion is an open platform built around the needs of IT and security departments in organizations, from small businesses to large enterprises. The system's database design allows simplified access to all system data like personnel data, access and levels, door status, and vent histories. The software features complete integration with major wireless and PoE (power over ethernet) locks from leading brands like Allegion. The system’s personnel data can be shared with other solutions such as Microsoft Active Directory or SAP solutions for a unified solution that seamlessly integrates access control with other business applications.
The FLEX API adds the ability to further integrate access control across functions in an organization. Examples include controlling hardware devices and understanding operational status, changing access levels and credentials across entire groups of employees, and integrating access control events and alarms with other security solutions. Examples of this type of integration include viewing video feeds associated with door events and quickly integrating biometric access solutions with the DNA Fusion database.
Open Integration Examples
The flexibility of DNA Fusion and an Open API permits a wide range of access control solutions. For elevators, control floor access based on schedules and levels of cardholders. Open Options has partnered with key elevator suppliers such as Otis and ThyssenKrupp to enable these solutions. DNA Fusion also provides a seamless interface to major VMS (video management system) vendors such as Avigilon, allowing features like controlling pan-tilt-zoom cameras, playing back video from multiple cameras, imprinting door event information on recorded video, and much more. With the current ongoing pandemic, DNA Fusion can also integrate access control with advanced biometric solutions that can include temperature screening and work with video analytics solutions like mask detection.
