Software House Adds Single-Reader Controller to iSTAR Family Posted on Wednesday, 10 April 2013

Offers space- and cost-saving options for small to mid-size installations

LAS VEGAS — April 10, 2013 –– Software House, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco (NYSE: TYC), introduces the iSTAR Edge Single-Reader Controller, a cost-effective one-reader version of its popular iSTAR Edge controller.
The iSTAR Single-Reader Controller is a natural extension of the current portfolio of 2- and 4-reader iSTAR Edge models. Suitable for space-saving placement above or near the door, the iSTAR Edge Single-Reader Controller can be clustered with other iSTAR models, including the iSTAR eX and iSTAR Pro, to provide advanced peer-to-peer communication, intrusion zones, keypad commands, extended card formats, advanced door monitoring and anti-passback.

Like the other iSTAR Edge devices, the Single-Reader version utilizes Power over Ethernet (PoE) to leverage existing network infrastructure, which dramatically reduces installation costs. iSTAR Edge increases overall system reliability by providing localized decision-making at each door with a robust local cardholder storage capability of more than 400,000 cardholders, along with local alarm and transaction buffering.

“As part of an end-to-end system, the iSTAR Edge Single-Reader Controller provides a cost-effective and highly functional solution for customers looking to use their existing infrastructure to secure smaller offices or areas within a larger corporate setting,” said Rick Focke, Senior Product Manager, Software House.

Other key features of the iSTAR Edge Single-Reader Controller include four supervised inputs onboard; two wet/dry relay outputs with selectable lock voltage; dedicated input for fire alarm interlock; and local display to assist in startup and diagnostics. It is also FIPS 201 compliant, making it an option for government smart card installations.
