Overview of the Axis A1001

The Axis A1001 Network Door Controller is a non-proprietary, open and IP-based unit which controls and powers a maximum of two card access readers - providing a secure solution for controlling physical access into premises.

The compact device is built using an open-architecture platform and features pre-installed Axis Entry Manager software for basic access management – ideal for use in small-scale installations. Larger enterprise systems can take advantage of the units’ compatibility with various third-party solutions - allowing for easy integration with other systems such as video surveillance, intruder detection and administrative systems. For example, alerts can be sent to activate video recording if a door has been left open, or if someone without authorisation is trying to gain access.

Compatible with a range of readers including the Axis A4010-E and A4011-E, the unit allows cardholder data and system configurations to be automatically stored and synchronised between controllers – all of which can be managed from any computer in the system. The versatile model also offers support for most existing reader protocols and types, as well as standard IT and security equipment - such as door locks and door position sensors.

With support for Power-over-Ethernet, this controller can receive power and network connectivity over one cable, allowing it to be powered by your existing IP network with no need for extra cabling. It can also be easily mounted close to a door and provides a fully scalable solution - as only one controller is required for each door. Installation is simplified using the handy setup wizard, and colour-coded connectors allow users to verify that door locks, readers and other equipment are connected properly.
