Johnson Controls Offers Simplified Access Control Solution with KT-1 Standalone

Press release date: Nov 22, 2017

Johnson Controls announces the immediate availability of the innovative Kantech KT-1 single door controller with embedded simplified access control software for one door systems. KT-1 Standalone is the ideal choice for a cost-effective, easy-to-use, single-door application.

With KT-1’s new Standalone Mode, using a dedicated web browser, the KT-1 Ethernet-ready single door controller can be controlled and managed via simple and intuitive web based software. EntraPass software is not required. This makes the KT-1 a viable option for small businesses and individuals with basic access control needs such as being able to assign card access and run reports.

“Full-fledged security management can be daunting for small businesses,” said Rajeev Dubey, Director of Distribution Access Control Product Management, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls, “but KT-1 Standalone removes the complexity from that process by giving users a web-based system that brings a greater level of security, while bypassing the investment required for computers and software.”

With a simplified and quick installation and no software required, KT-1 Standalone is appealing to a base beyond the traditional access control installer. No additional training is required because there is no software system to learn or special certification needed. The wizard-based platform walks installers through the process in minutes.

Users with growing access control needs can migrate to the next level with Kantech EntraPass or hattrix software.
