Corbin Russwin announces that HID iCLASS 13.56 MHz smart card technology is now available in its Access 800 WI1 lockset with intelligent WiFi access control.
The iCLASS technology is designed to improve the security of the locks by making physical access control more powerful through encryption and mutual authentication while offering versatile interoperability. The Company reports that at the same time, iCLASS is user-friendly, delivering the convenience, affordability and reliability of proximity technology.
The Access 800 WI1 is intended for bringing access control to areas of a building that are cost-prohibitive and challenging to wire. It is a complete solution, integrating all components – ANSI/BHMA, Grade One Corbin Russwin hardware, proximity reader and door monitoring – into a single device. The Access 800 WI1’s open architecture design is designed simplify integration with any access control system, and because there are no wires to run, it significantly reduces installation and labor costs.
Using an existing IEEE 802.11 b/g WiFi network and HID 125 kHz-proximity credentials, the Access 800 WI1 offers substantial access control features including real-time alarms and local decision-making to ensure operation regardless of network status.
The Access 800 WI1 is offered in ANSI/BHMA Grade One cylindrical locks, mortise locks and exit devices in a variety of lever styles – standard, Muséo and Vineyard – which can help in creating a consistent design aesthetic throughout a facility.
