Avigilon Access Control

The Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) is a top-of-the-line access control software system produced by one of the most cutting-edge and user-friendly developers of security products today.

With the Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM), inefficient and difficult-to-track entry methods are replaced with wireless locks and other keyless security solutions that are safe, scalable, and easy to manage. What's more, the Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) is an open-field cloud-based platform that uses standard industry modules to allow for easy integration with third-party security systems and hardware.

What is an access control system and how does one work?

Access control systems protect sensitive data and facilities from unauthorized access by cross-checking personal identifiable information against authorizations granted by administrators.

Access control systems contain both hardware and software components. Hardware components often include antennas or cables, physical credentials, credential readers, and gate or door locks. The main software component of an access control system is the access control manager, which contains identity information and associated access rights.

ID badges and key fobs with encrypted RFID (radio-frequency identification) chips are common credentials for access control systems, as are biometric credentials like faces and fingerprints. When a credential is presented at an access control entry point, antennas or cables connected with an access reader transmit their identifying data to access control management software that matches identity information with assigned access rights. If the credential presented at an access point matches entry privileges, a signal will be transmitted to unlock relevant doors or gates.

The Avigilon Access Control Manager (ACM) is a cloud-based platform that runs on a web browser, making it easy for administrators to remotely access and manage the system on computers and mobile devices. Features such as remote door lock and unlock, event search, video analytics, and video surveillance at access points all make Avigilon access control a great security solution for enterprise-scale businesses where multiple site entrances and exits require security oversight.

Additionally, Avigilon's access control manager supports integrated site mapping, easy-to-use video surveillance management interfaces, and alarms that can be triggered by unauthorized attempts at entry.

Avigilon Access Control for Scalability

The Avigilon Access Control Manager is flexible enough to meet the needs of both enterprise-system facilities and small businesses. The Avigilon system is designed for scalability, allowing for the addition of new entry points and staff credentials as businesses grow.

Easy Hardware Integration to Save Money

Avigilon's access control software is compatible with open-field hardware, meaning it can easily be integrated with existing hardware from other security companies. When adopting the Avigilon Access Control Manager, there's no need to replace expensive preexisting security system components, such as controllers, credentials, door readers, wireless locks, and even subpanels.

What's more, because Avigilon security systems are cloud-based, they can be maintained and upgraded without an additional license.

Easy Data Integration to Save Time

The Avigilon Access Control Manager easily connects with third-party HR and IT programs, allowing for the secure and hassle-free synchronization of identity data.

Ease of Use

Avigilon security systems are built with administrative operators in mind. Controls are intuitively designed and access data can be tracked and managed on a simple, logically structured interface--helping to reduce the time needed for staff training.

A Standby Appliance for Storage Redundancy

Avigilon access control systems include a hot standby auto-failover mechanism to make sure that credentials and their authorizations are not accidentally lost or corrupted. By storing essential information twice, the system helps users minimize the risk of expensive and time-consuming data loss.
