Whitepaper: Boosting efficiency and streamlining security with an integrated access control solution

INtrusion detection

Grade 3 alarm systems ‘standard’ for all Inner Range products

Inner Range access control products all include intruder detection systems certified as Grade 3, according to European Standard EN50131-1.

The grading system reflects how skilled and prepared intruders might be. Grade 3 (on an ascending risk scale from 1 to 4) assumes intruders will have some knowledge of an alarm system and a comprehensive range of tools and portable electronic equipment.

Many insurance companies will not provide business cover unless a Grade 3 alarm system is in place.

Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, said: “Our intelligent access control systems always offer high quality intruder detection as standard. We know security is paramount, regardless of whether customers are looking for an entry or enterprise level product. So we ensure all our products include certified Grade 3 alarm systems.

“Saving time and resources”

“Combining intruder detection with access control also means customers don’t have to buy, install and maintain two separate systems, saving time and resources while also providing a more effective solution for access and security challenges.”

Wireless devices, such as wireless motion sensors, can also be fitted to Inner Range products via partner companies Inovonics and Paradox. This is helpful for some listed and public buildings where wiring is difficult or prohibited for aesthetic reasons. Wireless systems are certified as Grade 2 but in some cases provide the only security solution.

High levels of security feature throughout Inner Range systems. For example, the manufacturer’s access cards include MIFARE DESFire EV2 chips.

These offer excellent security, privacy and multi-application support. Their Sifer readers deploy 128bit AES encryption from the card through to the door module, providing a far superior level of security than traditional Wiegand based card readers too.

Inner Range has been a world leader in the design and manufacture of intelligent security solutions since it was established in 1988. More than 130,000 Inner Range systems have been installed in over 30 countries.

Customers include hospitals and high-security units, colleges, distribution centres and pharmaceutical companies. government and critical national infrastructure.

Inner Range is exhibiting at IFSEC International 2019, Europe’s leading integrated security event, taking place 18-20 June 2019 at ExCeL London (stand IF1030). Book your free ticket now.
