Inner Range announces updates to Inception

Inner Range has released a new update for it’s entry-level product Inception, allowing operators to set automated actions in response to specific user numbers.

Automated actions based on user-count triggers include being able to change heating and air conditioning depending on the number of people on site, or in a particular area, showing messages about parking availability for drivers as they enter car parks, depending on how many other vehicles are there or automatic alarm-setting as people leave the site.

Tim Northwood, General Manager of Inner Range, said: “This is about making life better and easier for users and security managers alike. By automating some building and facilities functions, security managers can free up their time to deal with the most important matters.

“It’s another great feature for Inception, adding to the system’s power and flexibility while still retaining a budget-friendly price tag.”

Another feature in the latest update allows security managers to export encrypted CSV files of user-names and passwords from one Inception system to another, which helps organisations such as schools that may have staff moving between sites.

The update is available now for new and existing customers.

Biometric access credentials for Inception

A previous update to the range also allows Inception to take advantage of biometric technology. Facial recognition, fingerprint scans and iris scans can all now be used asInner Range Inception biometrics access credentials and this allows for more advanced security configurations for clients. For example, during office hours users could present either a face scan, or card or PIN to access a building but after-hours facial recognition is revoked and users must present both a card and PIN.

Inception users can present virtual credentials on their mobile phones via a REST API protocol (version 4) to gain entry, in another addition to the system.

For additional customisation, customers can add their own branding and logos to the system.

Security managers can freeze credentials if they are lost or stolen, as well as marked inactive so they cannot be used. If a rogue user attempts to use the credentials, the system withholds access and notifies the system manager.
