New Rack Mount Version of Software House® iSTAR Pro Controller Leverages IT Infrastructure

New Approach to Power Management Saves Space and Valuable Setup Time

Boca Raton, FL - September 24, 2007 - Software House®, a leading access control brand of Tyco International, today announced the new rack mount version of its iSTAR Pro controller.

Based on the original iSTAR Pro Controller's technology, which won acclaim in the IT world, the latest version of iSTAR Pro provides a whole new approach to managing power and wiring needs for access control systems. This version combines built-in lock power and separate, fused lock outputs with individual fire interlocks in a single rack mount unit. Reducing the number of components and interconnections ultimately enables simpler installation and minimizes the time IT staff needs to spend on product set up and deployment.

iSTAR Pro is an intelligent, modular controller designed to integrate various event management applications on one controller, providing ease of installation and interoperability among vital applications. Controlling up to 16 doors, iSTAR Pro offers network encryption, dual communications paths, advanced cluster control and streamlined design to provide a highly dependable, cost-effective solution for enterprise-wide access control.

"Software House solutions are built to meet the needs of both the physical security professionals and the IT personnel responsible for a company's network infrastructure," said Peter Boriskin, vice president of Tyco International's access control product line. "iSTAR Pro has always been regarded as a network-friendly controller and the new rack mount version just amplifies that."
