GuardPoint Pro Software Features – Modules

GuardPoint Pro Software Features

GuardPoint Pro is a diverse access control platform which can do much more than a conventional access control platform. GuardPoint Pro has many additional software features which can be added to create a powerful integrated security platform.

Video

Video+ is a smooth user friendly interface for security monitoring which combines CCTV and access control into one platform.  This module is ideal for security room applications where monitoring is key. Two views are available within the Video+ module - the first is for alarms and the second for access events. Both of these link the events to live and recorded footage from the IP cameras on site.

GuardPointPro Graphics Window

Graphics

There are many benefits of having a graphical representation of your security system. The 'Graphics+' module gives you a clear visual live representation of the buildings status. Icons are placed on your site map to typically represent doors, alarm inputs and relay outputs. Many additional icons are available to represent cameras, shortcuts and special custom user defined functions. The 'Graphics+' module has its own special tool to allow you to create your own custom icons to include in the provided library of graphical symbols.

Time and Attendance

Your access control system is already clocking the time and date of your employees so why not use this to calculate their hours worked?

The 'Time & Attendance' module offers a simple yet cost effective time and attendance system and can be used to:

  • - Calculate total hours worked according to readers selected.
  • - Define personal contracts, i.e. shift patterns, overtime and short time.
  • - Set fixed or flexible working hours.
  • - Calculate time accumulated on a specific job (i.e. training, project-related) or location (meeting room or library).
  • - Export the report as an external file in different formats.

The T&A + module is ideal for companies that require some time and attendance information without the cost of a dedicated T & A system.

web interface for GuardPointpro access control software

Web Interface

This 'Web Interface' module allows you to connect and control GuardPoint Pro from any PC via a web browser. This module is ideal for a facility manager to make quick and simple operations from multiple locations. You can regulate the access control platform from multiple different devices as a web page is not 'operating system' dependent. The web module needs to be hosted by yourself which gives you complete control over securing your cardholder data.

Alarm Control

The 'Alarm Control' module is a special module which gives you the power to create automated responses unique to your site requirements. Any site transaction events such as a start of an alarm or a granted access can be linked to a wide variety of actions within GuardPoint Pro.

Key Features of the ACM module include:

  • - Customisation of alarm acknowledgement instructions and alarm priority levels.
  • - Execution of crisis levels allowing the system to perform different type of lock down on alarm activation.
  • - Email alerts upon events.
  • - Live camera and cardholder photo pop up for visual verification.
  • - Automatic system back up.
  • - Automated report generation including fire roll call.

Parking Barrier with access control system

Parking

The 'Parking Control' module allows a simple capacity control for your car park. It ensures important members of staff and visitors will always have a guaranteed parking space. Once the set capacity is reached, the access control system can deny access and send a signal to a display panel to notify people the car park is full. The 'Car Parking' module is ideally coupled with our long range reading solutions as this allows the barrier to open automatically when your car approaches. 

Lift Control

The 'Lift Control' module allows you to restrict which floors a cardholder can access from the lift. The cardholder enters the lift and places his credential on a reader within the lift cab. The cardholders permissions would dictate which floor buttons can be pressed.  Lift Destination Control is especially useful for buildings containing multiple tenants.

Site Planning

Multi-Site

The 'Multi-Site' module is ideal for applications where access at many sites need to be centrally managed. For example: this module is highly useful for organisations with several independent branches that wish to let local branches view and control only their own sites, while still retaining the ability for overall management to be done from the site headquarters. The 'Multi-Site' module allows all the records in the database (controllers, readers, cardholders, etc.) to be divided into the different sites. Each user of GuardPoint Pro can be authorised to view/modify one or more sites.

The 'Multi-Site' module is designed to be used with the Microsoft SQL platform which adds many benefits to system redundancy. The different type of system architecture are as follows:
