Matrix Systems Unveils Frontier(TM) Web Essentials: Web-Based Access Control

Frontier(TM) Web Essentials offers user-friendly, affordable access control for retail stores, offices, healthcare buildings, general aviation airports and other small and medium-sized businesses.

MIAMISBURG, Ohio-Matrix Systems, a Miamisburg, Ohio-based turnkey security management solutions provider, now offers Frontier(TM) Web Essentials, a low-cost, user-friendly Web-based access control system developed especially for small and medium-sized businesses. Frontier Web Essentials' simple operation is designed for independent retailers, offices, small healthcare facilities, general aviation airports, industrial/warehouse space and other commercial real estate buildings that have access control security needs for a limited number of doors, but don't have dedicated IT staff, security supervisors or the capital for larger enterprise level systems.
This self-sufficient, ease-of-use system is designed for unattended administration. However authorized personnel can choose to monitor and control door access 24/7 from an on-site or remote personal computer (PC) using a standard Web browser via the Internet. The system doesn't require software installation or licensing, a dedicated PC or expensive monthly subscription fees like other browser-based access control systems.

Frontier Web Essentials uses the HID VertX(TM) controller and embedded software with fully encrypted IP connectivity that controls up to 16 doors and 500 cardholders. Installation of the out-of-the-box controller, door card readers and electronic door hardware is possible with a qualified electrician or with Matrix Systems installers. Any required engineering/application services, technical training and 24/7 customer support are available from Matrix Systems, which has 33 years of experience in access control equipment design, manufacturing, installation, and technical support throughout North America.

Frontier Web Essentials also offers several benefits of server-based solutions such as IP-based live video stream cameras, DVRs, NVRs and integration with alarm systems and a central station. The system also enables users to incorporate audit logs, perform scheduling and exception monitoring, add, delete or reclassify employees, generate reports and many other functions. Encoded employee badges for operating door card readers are personalized and supplied by Matrix Systems, thus eliminating the cost of an on-site badging station.

"This basic, low-maintenance system is very affordable for small and medium-sized businesses needing access control, but without all the bells, whistles, equipment, training and back-up support that's associated with an enterprise system," said Jim Russell, vice president-sales, Matrix Systems.

Other attributes of Frontier Web Essentials include:

o More than four years of successful field-tests completed in many applications;

o instruction by Matrix Systems available on-site or via webinars;

o fully upgradeable to Matrix Systems' Frontier(TM) Universe, an enterprise level, open architecture access control system offering CCTV, DVR recording, in-house photo ID badging, and other cutting edge features;

o systems that start with as little as two-door capabilities and are expandable by two or four-door increments up to 16 doors;

o triggers to activate building tasks such as lighting, alarms and door schedules;

o system back-ups that end users easily initiate on any Internet connected PC;
