Sargent and Persona have announced a new physical access control system for college campuses. The SARGENT Passport 1000 lockset, available in offline and WiFi-enabled versions, is an electronic locking system that operates with PERSONA Campus software.
The Grade 1 lock utilizes magnetic stripe and PIN code technologies for dual validation that can be customized to each facility. This lock and software combination integrates into a One Card solution system providing access control for campus housing and facilities.
The PERSONA Campus 1000 software works with most existing magnetic stripe card systems and imports student or personnel information without duplicating existing databases. Administrators can encode key cards with the Conference Guest Wizard feature.
The Passport 1000 PG offline version provides stand-alone access control without wiring. Data transfer between the lock and PC is accomplished through LockLink PDA. The PG accommodates up to 1,200 users per door and a 700-event transaction trail.
The Passport 1000 P2 version features WiFi technology that enables the lock to connect wirelessly into an access control system. The P2 can operate indefinitely without any wireless connection to a host server or access control panel.
