SARGENT Introduces Power over Ethernet Profile Series Locks

v.S1 Provides Utilizes Existing Local Area Network Infrastructure for Cost-Effective Installations

January 27, 2010 — The Profile Series v.S1 combines the security of SARGENT ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 exit devices, bored and mortise locks with open-standard, technology-forward IEEE 802.3af networking.

This fully integrated and online access control lock ties into a building’s existing local area network, or LAN, enabling the user to monitor a facility’s hardware from a third-party access control system.  What's more, the v.S1 also helps the user realize significant cost reduction through the elimination of power supplies, integration of card reader and monitoring sensors into the lock, and reduced labor due to faster installation times. 

With the v.S1, important security tasks - interrogation of lock hardware, changing user profiles, identifying possible security breaches and issuing lockdowns - can all be completed from a centralized location.  However, this “smart lock” is not dependent on the network and can provide access control even if the network is unavailable.

No proprietary equipment or power supply is required for system installation, resulting in reduced costs and faster commission.  The v.S1 offers dual credentialing (125 kHz prox and keypad) or prox only, and can store up to 2,000 users per lock. 

The door status monitoring function allows the system administrator to remotely query door position (open/closed).  In addition, included sensors enable immediate alarms, such as Forced Door and Unauthorized Access Attempts, allowing appropriate security steps to be taken. What’s more, should a critical situation arise, the v.S1 can respond immediately to a lockdown command, while free egress is maintained at all times. 

An attractive feature is the fact that the v.S1 is capable of “local” decision-making: the lock maintains a copy of the user database inside, ensuring that an “access granted/access denied” decision can be made right from the lock’s internal database.  In addition, the v.S1 is capable of locally storing 10,000 events. Both are important benefits in the event of a network outage.

Available in exit device, cylindrical and mortise lock configurations, the Profile Series v.S1 is aesthetically complemented with SARGENT Studio Collection or Coastal Series levers.  MicroShield® antimicrobial finish is also available for maximum user safety.
