Alarm Lock, a division of NAPCO Security Technologies, introduced AirAccess, a unique access control system as a service (ACaaS) designed to help locksmiths, security dealers and integrators build business and RMR-generating accounts faster than ever, purposefully sized for small and medium-sized businesses. AirAccess is the first cellular-based access control system that makes the system connections for its installer quickly and easily via cellular communications networks, outside of the customers’ network, firewall or overburdened IT department. It’s also easy to bid and budget for, as the monthly service has one flat per system rate. And, since it’s a hosted service, the client doesn’t have to worry about a big upfront hardware or security staff expense.
“We’re super excited to debut AirAccess to integrators, dealers and locksmiths because it really is a best of NAPCO Security Technologies system, literally,” said Judith Jones-Shand, vice president of marketing at NAPCO. “It powerfully combines some of the market’s best selling brands in a new, easy-to-install, business- and RMR-building access control system as a service. AirAccess uses Napco StarLink's super easy cellular communications technology to make networking a breeze, entirely outside of the customers' IT department. Alarm Lock’s wireless networked locks, with hundreds of architectural trim options from Marks or NetworxPanel, and a really simple cloud-based version of Continental’s Access Software, with a five-step easy setup Wizard, are right-sized for the large volume of small and medium-sized businesses out there looking for security.
“Even more attractive for integrators looking to add accounts and RMR quickly — it’s a hosted ACaaS with one flat monthly rate for the system — not per door, like others do. Easy to bid, easy for accounts to budget and afford. We like to say in marketing: AirAccess is a breeze. Launched at the recent ISC West, it’s available now at a distributor near you."
While a new ACaaS solution, its foundation is on the tried and true StarLink cellular communications and Alarm Lock Trilogy wireless networked locks or panel, with standard wiegand readers. AirAccess is designed to be attractive and more affordable to small and medium-sized businesses. Fully scalable, AirAccess offers accounts an easy mobile app with built-in credentials and control, plus SMS notifications, on demand reports and real-time emergency monitoring. For security pros, it combines easy cellular-based installation and operation, plug and play setup and software and a five step wizard — all virtually wireless from the cloud to the doors. Plus, it offers dealers, locksmiths and integrators twice the RMR potential, providing hosted access control and real-time security monitoring.
