Features & Integrations

IPassan is flexible, as you can configure a simple or complex Access Control system with ease, all from the same interface.

IPassan is also timeless, as it is continuously being upgraded to provide the latest in Access Control functionality, with features such as lift destination control and threshold counting, available straight out of the box, with no additional hardware required.

The IPassan system software, and device firmware can be remotely upgraded, meaning that even if an IPassan system was installed 4 years ago, residents & building managers can still benefit from the latest developments & features through regular updates, free of charge.

It’s worth remembering that despite advanced, out of the box functionality, IPassan is not just an Access Control system for complex residential projects, for example…

Just need a simple Access Control system, with no bells and whistles, just simple user access & time profiles? IPassan can handle it.

Or, need a complex Access Control system, with lift destination control & event logging? IPassan can handle it.

Take a look below at just some of the advanced functionality that IPassan can provide to your project; straight out of the box…

Lift Destination Control

IPassan has the capability to control the lift destination for both residents and visitors. This means that both resident & visitor access to specific floors can be managed.

For example, resident access can be limited to only allow access to the floor that the resident lives on, and any other communal floors. So, when the resident enters the building and calls the lift, when stepping inside, only the buttons for their floor, and communal floors will be illuminated.

This helps to prevent unauthorized access to other residential floors through building compartmentation, which is a Secured by Design guideline.

Door Entry Integration

IPassan is fully integrated with our 2 wire Door Entry system ‘2Voice’ and our IP Door Entry system ‘IPerCom’.

IPassan integrates with our 2 wire Door Entry system ‘2Voice’ using our UL293 certified 2Voice Door Entry panel ‘2Smart’, which is programmed directly on the IPassan Manager software.

Integrating IPassan with our Door Entry systems ‘unlocks’ additional functionality, such as visitor lift destination control, and even event logging for events occurring on the Door Entry system (i.e. resident buzzes visitor in).

CCTV Integration

IPassan can integrate with the on-site CCTV cameras, as it supports ONVIF protocol.

When integrated with IPassan, each CCTV camera can be viewed individually in real time, or in replay mode, directly from the IPassan Manager software using RTSP.

The CCTV cameras can even be linked with system events through IPassan Manager. For example, an event is logged on the system (e.g. resident fobs into the building), when this event is logged by IPassan Manager, the CCTV camera linked to the location of that system event will automatically start recording.

This CCTV feed is automatically associated to the specific event in the event log, and it can then be viewed both in real time or in replay mode, directly from IPassan Manager!

Now of course, the 3 featured & integrations outline above are only a flavour of what can be achieved with IPassan, take a look below for a more extensive list…
