If you are looking for an integrated web-based access control system that encompasses access control, intruder alerts and building automation, then ProtegeWX is the answer.
In the past, intruder detection & access control systems have worked independently. ProtegeWX unites these two functions to offer you a single unified and cohesive solution for keeping intruders outside, whilst allowing you to monitor activity inside your premises. This delivers not only a more cost-effective security system, it also gives a higher level of security whilst improving the safety of your staff, packaged in a user-friendly intuitive interface that is simple to use.
A fundamental requirement of an access control system is to keep track of time. However, if your operating system makes it simple to manage your schedules, you can utilise this functionality for much more. ProtegeWX allows you to create complex rules that encompass holidays, time of day, day of the week and other conditions you require to be automated. Your Protégé controller will make sure that what you want to happen, happens on time, and that access is granted, where required, when required.
ProtegeWX transforms how companies manage their access control, allowing you to efficiently manage your system from your pocket with a simple finger swipe. You can control, configure and monitor your system from anywhere, even the other side of the world. Because ProtegeWX has an inbuilt web-based platform, you are free of any constraints normally implied by utilising a software/desktop based interface. The intelligent technology means you can easily configure your sites from beginning to end without any training.
The intelligent programming of ProtegeWX offers you fast & easy out-of-the-box intuitive setup. Just unpack your box, plug in the controller and open your web browser. The smart wizard interface will take you through the setup process to configure your system. You can deliver a fully functioning access control and detection system in a fraction of the time of traditional software-based systems.
You can say goodbye to the limitations imposed by traditional software systems. With ProtegeWX there is no software installation which makes setup very fast and simple. Forget about the problems you used to have like lost DVDs, software compatibility, licencing and connection problems.
For most businesses, energy efficiency is a leading priority and is becoming more important due to public awareness of the environment. Building automation systems that manage your energy consumption are an effective way of controlling your energy costs. Protégé gives you an easy, central solution that monitors and optimises your energy use.
The Automation and Control, or C-Bus services, provide you with a generic interface for incorporating other automation products like AMX, Savant, Crestron, Control 4, C-Gate & Command Fusion, or those using the Clipsal C-Bus protocol.
ICT’s Automation and Control protocol makes ProtegeWX an open source, enabling programmers to create their own bespoke integrations. The protocol allows third party products to connect with Protégé controllers, which allows you to control outputs, inputs, doors, variables and more… anywhere in the system. Protégé will monitor the status of these items and alert you if the status of these items changes.
In a busy site, events can fly by quickly. Whilst a technician needs to have all the intimate details of the system available to them, an end user needs to have system access at a glance and be able to easily control items.
Offsite monitoring gives you additional peace of mind knowing that security personnel will be alerted when an alarm is tripped, so a response can be triggered, security guards dispatched, or emergency services alerted. All ProtegeWX controllers include an onboard Ethernet adapter with built-in IP reporting functionality, with standard two-door controllers also including an onboard modem to communicate alarms via a traditional telephone line.
The web-based interface enables you to work from anywhere – your home, office, a café or from your vehicle. You only need an internet connection – then you can access Protégé from anywhere, at any time.
The mobile app gives you the power to check the status of alarms (or any other functionality) with the ability to arm or disarm with a single tap. You can throw away your garage remotes because your phone can open your doors. Arrive at your office or home to find the lights, air-conditioning or heating already powered on, all controlled by your phone.
Get push notifications to accept alerts of your system activity. As a business owner, you know if your system is armed or disarmed at the start or end of the day. And of course, you’ll receive instant alerts if any alarms are triggered.
ProtegeGX has been designed to be intuitive and very user friendly. With effective use of graphic floor plans and highly customisable status pages, you can easily configure the system to your requirements. Set up your event and alarm filters to display the alarm and event data you require for your sites.
Integration with a wide range of third party systems enables you to maximize the infrastructure and IT investments you already have available on site while adding value to existing technology. ICT’s open Automation and Control protocol allows third party developers to create custom integrations that communicate directly with the ProtegeGX Controller.
