Maximize Energy Efficiency and Stay Secure
Green building construction and renovation requires careful selection of the specific products used in the process.
With iTRUST 2.0, building security, which is necessary to protect people, facilities and assets – now gives architects and engineers an opportunity to add the security system into the facility’s sustainability goals.
A sustainable access control system can improve overall facility energy efficiency by reducing the impact of a key electronic system which is necessary to operate on a 24/7 basis.
Besides being a “server-less” web-based application, one of the greatest efficiencies within the iTRUST 2.0 access control system can be found at the door, with the use of the BlueEdge Unified Digital Controllers (UDC). The intelligent UDC panels deliver dual IP-based door access control, which use Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) technology, lessening both power requirements and total materials used. Combine the overall efficiency of iTRUST 2.0 and the UDC with industry leading sustainable integrated partner technologies from Farpointe (card readers) and ASSA ABLOY (integrated PoE+ and WiFi locks), and “green” access control delivering optimized power consumption is within your organization’s reach. Realize your “green” business goals by making sustainability a central part of your security team’s philosophy and culture.
