2N® Access Unit

The unique 2N® Access Unit is based purely on IP technology. It combines the functions of a traditional controller with the functions of end access equipment. The unit is available in versions with keypad, RFID card reader, fingerprint reader, or Bluetooth. Its characteristic design is striking, also being attractive thanks to simple installation and configuration. Naturally, it can also be connected to 2N Helios IP intercoms, gaining you a comprehensive access system solution which you can manage easily via 2N® Access Commander.

About

Features & Benefits

  • Access security
    Use 2N® Access Unit to prevent unauthorised access to a building, ensuring the highest level of security for all people in the building.
  • Unit with complete intelligence
    The 2N® Access Unit combines a traditional controller with end access equipment and an IP converter, significantly reducing the costs associated with installation, cabling, and maintenance.
  • Simple installation
    Power over PoE and a single ethernet cable make installation very simple. You can connect a lock, exit button, or open-door sensor directly to the unit.
  • Bluetooth technology
    Bluetooth technology lets you use a smartphone to open the door, so you needn’t worry about forgotten or damaged RFID cards or PIN abuse.
  • Fingerprint reader
    Provide maximum access security for your building using modern, completely secure, and reliable access technology combined with luxury design.
  • Opening door with smartphone in pocket
    2N® Access Unit Bluetooth offers different methods of opening a door. One method allows you to open the door just by touching the unit, without even having to touch your phone.
  • Administration via web interface
    All you need to do is connect the access unit to your LAN, and then everything can be configured with ease via the web interface.
  • Greater access security
    To provide maximum security in a protected area outside business hours, two-factor authentication of users may be required, i.e., a combination of two different access technologies.
  • Tamper protection
    2N® Access Unit is equipped with a mechanical protective switch. As soon as anyone attempts to damage the unit mechanically, the switch is activated and an alarm is set off.
  • Entry and exit monitoring
    Other expansion modules can be connected to the 2N® Access Unit (for example RFID reader, keypad, Bluetooth etc.), which can secure a door from both sides with ease.
  • Invalid access data warning
    If an invalid card is used to attempt access or an invalid PIN is entered several times, the 2N® Access Unit immediately signals a warning to the administrator.
  • Indoor and outdoor use
    Thanks to its mechanical properties, the access unit is designed for either indoor or outdoor installation.

"For our client , the manufacturing company AMETIC GROUP Ltd., we deployed the 2N® Access Unit readers and the 2N® Access Commander access control system to resolve employee access to restricted areas and provide assessment of attendance records."
"For our project with Kempinski hotel we used 2N® Helios IP Verso intercoms, 2N® Indoor Touch units and 2N® Access Units. These solutions were used for apartments, public areas and back of house zones, like offices. Thanks to 2N compatibility we are using an online solution and provide integration with local BMS system through API."
