Honeywell introduced IdentIPoint, an IP-based access control system “that shifts system intelligence to the card reader using smartcard technology,” says the release. It “eliminates” the need for centralized access controllers and allows decisions to be made between the smartcard and the card reader. The smartcard contains the cardholder’s credentials such as access rights, permissions and biometric template (if applicable). When the smartcard is present to the IdentIPoint card reader, the transaction is logged through Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator. It uses a microprocessor to write information and includes these additional features:

– Security threat level management software
– Support for Power over Ethernet
– Support for WiFi 802.11 connectivity
– 128-bit encryption using the Advanced Encryption Standard
– Auto-discovery tools and wireless handheld device support
– Several card reader models (Basic, Standard and Fingerprint)
