Kaba Access and Data Systems (ADS) Americas announces the addition of BioGard Pro to its product portfolio. BioGard Pro combines the LA GARD ComboGard Pro Safe Lock with the AX.S Embedded Access Control System and I.AM Biometric Fingerprint Key to create a comprehensive system that protects assets while tracking and capturing data. The solution can be stand-alone or as part of a single- or multi-branch AX.S Access Control System.
This new solution offers businesses, especially banks or retail stores, a concrete way to ensure that only authorized users access a safe or cash recycler while recording every event. A specially designed cable connects the ComboGard Pro Safe Lock to the Access Manager, creating the link between access control system and the lock. Users present their finger to Biometric Reader and with a valid read the Fingerprint Reader sends a signal to the Combo Gard Pro that enables it to accept a PIN. Simultaneously, the access control database captures when and who accessed the lock.
"What is so exciting about BioGard Pro is that it leverages multiple Kaba products to deliver a really unique solution to banks and retail stores," says Logan Stewart, product manager Kaba ADS Americas. "And, this product is perfect for not only new installations but any facility that has an existing ComboGard Pro lock on a safe or cash recycler. By adding the interface cable and access control system/reader to an existing lock, you can create an entirely new way of managing assets."
