IPassan comprises of 2 fundamental components that make the system function, hover over the terms below to find out what these are…
Now obviously there are more component parts to IPassan, but if you understand these two then you understand the main principles of IPassan.
IPassan is a scalable system; the base controller can be networked either via Ethernet or RS485, and can be paired with expansion modules and input/output expanders (they do what they say on the tin, they expand the inputs/outputs on the base controller by 12) to create a highly flexible system that can accommodate any building access strategy.
At the heart of any IPassan system, is the Urmet 4 door base controller. Aside for being UL293 certified, the base controller has 2 main advantages, these being…
The 4 door base controller controls… 4 doors. However, this can be expanded to control 6 doors when connected to the 2 door expansion card. We’ve created a video on the 4 Door Base Controller, and associated 2 Door Expansion Card, which you can check out below…
If you’re managing a large site, adding in all those base modules, expanders and expansion cards can take up a lot of space, and can look quite untidy. This is why Urmet have created 2 metal enclosures that have been specifically designed to house installed IPassan equipment.
Each metal case arrives as standard with a built in PSU for the base controller, and has space for DIN rail modules, you can find out more by clicking the images below…
How is it Managed?
Managing & Installing IPassan is really simple.
Once the controllers and readers have been installed, all you need is the IPassan Manager Software to program and maintain the system.
The IPassan Manager Software is completely free (i.e. no licenses), and can be installed either locally on a PC, or used remotely on the IPassan website. IPassan Manager has 2 great features, which make installing and maintaining the system simple, these are…
‘Ok, but how is IPassan actually managed?’
Well, the Building Manager simply uses the IPassan Manager software to add, modify & delete users. A useful feature that the Building Manager can set up in IPassan Manager is ‘Definable Thresholds’, these are simply limits on a definable action within the Access Control system.
It sounds complex I know, but it isn’t. A great example would be…
‘If an apartment releases the main door more than 20 times in a 24 hour period’ notify the Building Manager’
The action is ‘apartment releasing the main door’, with a limit of ’20 times’ within a ’24 hour time period’. If this limit is exceeded, a notification can be sent to the Building Manager alerting them of possible system misuse.
The Building Manager can also view and export all these system events directly from the IPassan Manager Software as well!

You know by now that IPassan is UL293 certified, and allows for 24/7 remote management of all your sites. However, there are some other large features within IPassan which are great, but haven’t been covered in this Solution post; this is because they deserve their own, separate solution post – however, we have covered them briefly in the tiles below…
