Integrated security manufacturer TDSi is pleased to announce exciting new features for its powerful EXgarde Web security solution. Additional functionality includes approving door entry PIN codes and photo capture, all from any secure Internet-enabled device.

Alex Rumsey, Director of UK Sales at TDSi commented, “EXgarde Web was originally launched in 2014 and offers an additional option to interface with TDSi’s powerful EXgarde solution. It allows security operators or authorised staff to add new security users and grant access through any Internet enabled device. The operator can capture key fields (such as name, organisation and car registration etc), assign security rights and issue access cards.”

EXgarde Web’s new PIN code functionality allows a PIN to be amended and assigned to a door, as well as adding validity across a range of dates and times (which is useful for assigning cards for visitors or short-term contractors). Photos can also be captured through the web portal, so photo ID can be created easily and efficiently.

The solution is also ideal for quickly responding to a security issue, such as a lost or stolen access card. The suspect card can be suspended, and a new card issued rapidly, with a visibility of all activity to assess the whole situation. Equally, it can be used to rapidly compile reports, for instance during a fire or other evacuation. EXgarde Web will report on who has entered or left the building, which is invaluable to the Fire Marshall and Search & Rescue teams.

Alex added, “EXgarde Web does not require any new software, the user just requires a spare Network User client licence for the functionality to be supported. Secure access can be gained from any Internet portal, including major smartphone platforms as well as PC and Apple. Using a highly intuitive interface, little or no training is required to operate the software.”

The solution is perfect for all sizes of organisations and applications. It is particularly suited to operators such as Receptionists or anyone who uses the system on an infrequent basis, as the software is very easy to use. EXgarde Web’s flexibility deliberately has more limited features compared to the full blown EXgarde PRO Client interface, to ensure security in the unlikelihood a mobile device is breached, or the operator makes a mistake.

Alex concluded, “EXgarde Web requires the latest version of EXgarde with the free web module installed on a client device. EXgarde Web can be used over multiple devices providing an unbeatable level of flexibility and usability for this powerful integrated security solution. If your business is already using EXgarde it is the perfect way to enhance your security regime for a minimal outlay.”
