To continue its tradition of security communications in the age of 28/8 integration, AccessNsite by American Direct, announced significant new features to its access control software.

This update focuses on AccessNsite compatibility with Mercury controllers, and includes:

  • Mercury LP Controllers. The LP series controller boards can now be used with AccessNsite;
  • Multiple Mercury Drivers – AccessNsite now supports up to 10 Mercury drivers;
  • Mercury Series 3 Serial I/O Boards –AccessNsite now fully supports the latest Series 3 boards.

“These updates build upon our history of continued integration and compatibility with Mercury controllers,” said Jerry Glynn, chief information officer with American Direct. “We continue to innovate in 28/8 integration and support the key technology that is a part of today’s physical access control platform.”

AccessNsite by American Direct also announced upgrades to its software, creating unique usability features with ASSA ABLOY IN120 locks.

“The changes we’ve made to AccessNsite give us the ability to do some unique things with the IN120,” Glynn said. “We’ve maximized feature sets and power giving the user more options and flexibility.”

ASSA ABLOY provides an option for powering the IN120 wireless lock using a hard-wired connection instead of using batteries, thus making it an online lock. This new model definition has been added into AccessNsite.

Additionally, the new updates support Mercury Aperio features, including: privacy mode; escape and return; send time down to locks; and door mode notifications.

New upgrades to AccessNsite software also increase compatibility with Allegion products.

“These updates allow users increased flexibility and usage with Allegion products,” Glynn said. “We’re continually focused on our relationship with Allegion, ensuring AccessNsite compatibility across the Allegion suite of products while adding value to the end-user.”

The new updates include Allegion CTE and Von Duprin RU/RM.

Finally, major upgrades to AccessNsite by American Direct create a powerful new data tool and API. This new data transfer tool allows users to create and save their own templates, supports continuous data integration, and allows for periodic information exchange for reporting or other specialized needs.

In addition to the new data tool, this update also includes a new JSON web services API. This provides an easier and more widely used interface to the AccessNsite API.

“Through the use of our new API and new tools, AccessNsite users have more ways to personalize the way in which they utilize and manage their data needs,” said Jerry Glynn, Chief Information Officer with American Direct. “Businesses can customize the capabilities of the system to meet operations and security requirements.”
