Kaba Standalone Kit with Biometrics

As part of the I.AM Series Identity Access Management product line, Kaba Access and Data Systems (ADS) has introduced its Standalone Identity Access Management System (AD102 Kit). The two-piece solution includes a Standalone Controller (AD102) and Fingerprint Key (AR402) and provides all the benefits of biometric access control in a simple, non-networked package. The AD102 Kit supports up to two entry points with a single reader.

Similar to Kaba’s AX.S Series of products, the access control application is embedded, eliminating the installation and maintenance of software or servers. In addition, the AD102 Kit is an independent, non-networked module so there is no need for a PC. Users are enrolled and deleted directly at the Fingerprint Key, and visitors are granted access by entering a PIN code. Users gain authenticated access in less than one second by simply placing their finger at the Fingerprint Key.

According to Logan Stewart, product manager Kaba ADS Americas, “The AD102 Kit is the perfect solution for residential or commercial applications, including doors, gates, garages, warehouses, gun safes, jewelry cabinets, data rooms, remote sites, and second properties. And, even though the system is designed to accommodate smaller scale usage, the AD102 Kit can migrate to work with an AM524 or AM300 Controller and its door unit, creating a full featured web-based system.” The Embedded Access Control Series rounds out Kaba ADS’ access control and data capture product suite.

Most readers are familiar with door loops, power hinges and other power transfer hardware. The one thing they have in common is that they use wire between the door and the frame. Securitron’s new PowerJump ICPT uses induction, the phenomenon upon which transformers work, to get power for a door lock located in the door from the door frame.
