Argus Global launches wireless access control system in Australia and New Zealand


Argus Global has launched Argus Access — a wireless access control system that provides the option of PIN, proximity cards or fobs, or biometric readers — in Australia and New Zealand.

The wireless component allows for a faster and less expensive installation, costing 40% less to install than a fully wired system.

Argus Access uses the secure and reliable ZigBee IEEE. 802.15.4 Wireless network communications method with a 128 bit AES encryption.

Using the ZigBee network ensures that each node in the network relays data for the whole network.

This means that a door controller only has to be within range of another door controller, rather than the central controller, which significantly extends the reach of the network.

The access control system offers the option of PIN, proximity cards or fobs, or biometric readers, allowing customers to mix and match based on their specific security needs.

This level of flexibility also makes it easier to upgrade or add components as the customer’s security needs continue to evolve.

Previously reported, Argus Global installed its iTrak incident reporting and risk management solution at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, making it the first post-secondary school in Australia to use the system.
