Bosch Access Professional Edition software allows a complete security solution through integration with other devices, e.g. security and elevator management. An integration with Milestone XProtect® via OPC offers a powerful combination of Bosch access control and Milestone video management software.

The innovative Access Modular Controller (AMC) hardware administrated by Access Professional Edition software is field proven in thousands of enterprise-level access control applications including high level security projects. The powerful combination with Milestone XProtect covers integrated alarm management, video verification, map viewing, door handling and event viewing from one user interface. This server-based access control solution ensures proper search function and grouping capabilities for cardholders for more effective information management.

Key features

  • Rugged and proven access control hardware - the Bosch Access Modular Controller (AMC) hardware used by APE is rugged enterprise-level access control already active at thousands of installations including high-level security projects; AMC hardware stores up to 2 million events in offline operation - server rack or enclosure mounted with battery back-up option for standalone operation; coverage for up to 512 readers and 10,000 cards per system and up to three cards per person

  • Entrance monitoring - monitor access points with live listing of access events including cardholder information; control entrances remotely and see entrance status from XProtect® location maps; in-context investigation via independent playback; quick link to access control workspace and overlay button support for access control commands; increased security at the entrance: operator can instantly verify matches between cardholder photo and cardholder at the door and remotely grant access after verification

  • Video alarm verification - the alarm management highlights alarm locations with animation at the entrance location where the alarm occurred; live video and cardholder information (if available) is shown to verify the situation and treat the alarm; two-way audio communication via XProtect®-integrated audio devices; support for executing commands (i.e. unlock door)

  • Map viewer and alarm management - display access device status on the map (i.e. door open, server connected) and control single access devices through the map (i.e. unlock or lock door)

  • History event log - list and preview video of access point events; locate events triggered by specific cardholder activities and track a person's whereabouts for a specified time; view history log with integrated video footage and cardholder details including cardholder photo; advanced capabilities including printing of event reports

  • Cardholder and visitor management - fast tracking of persons in the building for security and emergency reasons; automatic enrollment of badges to speed up the enrollment process and prevent errors

  • Badge design - increased security with customized badges for person identification throughout the premises; import pictures, add text, draw lines, change colors and print them to a connected card printer; the Card Personalization Configuration software can be used to setup the settings for photos and printers which the APE software is using

  • Arming and disarming of intrusion detection systems - an interfaced intrusion alarm system can easily be armed or disarmed over the access reader leaving the office secured against burglary attempts; highest level of security and convenience with cost saving integrated functionality

  • Elevator and parking lot control - special door model for elevator control; the reader mounted inside the elevator activates the buttons of the floors authorized to the cardholder
