HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, has announced the release of its EDGE EVO® Solo IP-enabled solution that brings intelligence and decision-making to the door for advanced and highly customizable networked access control. As a single-door solution, EDGE EVO Solo is part of the company’s new generation EDGE EVO open and scalable controller platform that enables an extensive range of access control functionality, including real-time monitoring, report generation and the use of the system hardware for complimentary applications.
EDGE EVO Solo is a remotely managed stand-alone solution that utilizes a standard web browser and does not require software to be installed on PCs. It also provides the ability to power all devices around a door using Power over Ethernet (PoE), significantly reducing total door installation costs by removing the need to install a separate, dedicated power supply. EDGE EVO Solo utilizes less expensive CAT5 wiring compared to traditional structured cable, and it can be fully upgradeable to an EDGE EVO Host solution as access control demands increase.
“Offering the convenience of contactless physical access control along with PC login and a variety of additional smart card-enabled applications, EDGE EVO Solo is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses managing a single door for ten to hundreds of cardholders,” said John Fenske, vice president of Product Marketing, Physical Access Control with HID Global. “The solution’s intuitive web interface also enables a number of simple management features, making it to easy understand for users that know little to nothing about access control.”
EDGE EVO Solo is available in controller-only and controller/reader and form factors that support a full range of card and reader options. It includes global regulatory certifications and is localized in 12 languages for use in major markets around the world. HID Global’s EDGE EVO Solo is available now. Click here for more information.
