Access control systems bring increased safety and security to a facility. They do this by controlling who may enter the premises by use of identifiers such PINs, credentials or biometrics, and permitting the exterior doors to remain locked, thereby discouraging unauthorized entries...

CCTV IMPORTS OA200-ID
CCTV Imports has introduced several Time & Attendance products which are easy to install and which address the issues associated with identity verification and simplify payroll processing.
The OA200-ID is one of the best time attendance and access control systems because of its multifunction, high technology and graceful design. This system is an excellent choice for companies, offices and governments. The OA200-ID can be used as a stand-alone unit or connected via Wiegand output to work with a standard access controller.
OA200-ID is supplied with a System CD, wall mount adapter, plug-in 12VDC power supply, accessory cables and sample proximity cards. The Time & Attendance Software and system manual are on the CD. We had few issues installing the software, and the manual was pretty clear and enabled us to program the unit quickly.
The unit has an integral biometric finger scanner and English language prompts which advise the user if the finger scan was successful. The biometric scanner worked well. The integral Prox card reader is very sensitive, and has pretty good range.
Users’ fingers are enrolled with the unit, while user name and other details are enrolled into the software, and then sent to the 0A200-ID unit.
The OA200-ID operates standalone, and only requires temporary connection to a PC for updating the door unit or capturing activity logs for export to payroll.
Outputs on the OA200-ID include dry contacts for operating an electric locking device, communications ports for RS485, RS 232 ANS TCP/IP, and a Wiegand data output so the OA200-ID integral Prox reader can be connected to an external electronic access control.
The faceplate of the terminal has a keypad, Prox reader, the scanner and buttons labeled in and out. When an employee arrives, he or she presses the “In” button and presents a credential, at which time the individual’s name or ID number appears in the display. The person then presents a finger to the scanner and access is either granted or denied. Each person enrolls two fingers in case one of the fingers is not available (for example they have a boo-boo, or are holding a cup of coffee with that hand), they can use the alternate finger.
When they leave for the day, they repeat the process, only they press the “Out” button before hitting the sequence.
Standard fingerprint capacity is 2,000. Standard record capacity is 50,000. Multiple identification methods are possible fingerprint only, card only, card plus fingerprint and ID card reader.
Additional features include:
—Improved core module
—32-bit embedded Arm system
—Super dual processor
—Standard Port RS232/485, TCP/IP (optional ), Wiegand26

—Sleeping Current: —ESD Tolerance: >15000V

—Temperature/Humidity: -10 to 60 degrees C, 20 to 80 percent
Some of terminology used in the operating manual and software is alien to locksmiths. We will have to learn the lingo.
I have a few clients who have actually asked me about Time & Attendance systems, so my learning time of this technology will hopefully be amortized by future sales.
