With building security systems getting more sophisticated, the use of CCTV and access control are a more of a requirement now, instead of the luxury they were just a short time ago. Unfortunately, CCTV and access control don't always provide a complete system. CCTV systems present a broad view of a wide area and access control systems are only as good as the credentials put in front of them.
The AX Series by Aiphone is the final piece that completes the security puzzle. The AX video door station shows a clear image of a person’s face to complement the broad image shown by CCTV. Simultaneously, it provides a convenient method of communication for those with lost, missing or inappropriate access credentials. In addition the AX Series can forward calls from access points to an outside phone line.
After identity is established, simply press a button on the AX master unit to activate the door where access is being requested.

When protecting a facility, the AX Series is user friendly to visitors and vendors who must enter areas protected by card access security systems.

Once the visitor has been approved, a door release button can be pressed to let them in. Employees who have lost credentials can use the system for verification prior to gaining entry too. The versatility of the AX system allows multiple entries to communicate throughout a commercial facility.
Aiphone’s AX Series combines communication with monitoring of multiple gates and doors.

The AX Series also provides an effective solution for correctional personnel within cell block areas. Where communication and security control are critical, the system performs flawlessly and provides event logging of all system activity. An assortment of vandal resistant sub stations is also available for guard to inmate communication.
Schools without an electronic access control system to monitor doors or office entrances must rely on staff personnel to be the eyes and ears of their facility. With Aiphone’s AX Series, monitoring these entrances is now easier than ever. The system offers the flexibility to monitor, communicate, and control multiple entrances, along with providing a crisp image of who is at the door. Once the visitor is identified, they can be let in by means of a built-in door release button on the system. Integrate the system with an electronic access control system instead of worrying about lost or stolen keys ending up in the wrong hands. Aiphone’s quality door stations with built in HID readers make maintaining the system easier than replacing keys and credentials.
