Loxal Security Launches IDACS + : The Second Generation
By: Loxal Security
Comments Dan Delaney, Loxal Director: "What we have done is to build upon the strong foundations of IDACS, with the objective of enhancing usability, increasing security, improving connectivity between IDACS and Resideo Videofied, and to streamline the way information is captured.
"The IDACS user code system will remain the same; units will still be operational via a six-digit code and setting and neutralising the on-site Videofied alarm will be done in the existing way through the IDACS keypad.
"There are a number of changes that are beneficial to Loxal and our product range in general, however not all these changes are relevant to our clients."
The most notable upgrades for IDACS + are:
Audit: Data will be captured via Bluetooth. This means that anyone who has been authorised, and has downloaded the newly developed IDACS+ App, can retrieve/download audit trails. These will automatically be sent to Loxal administration. This has enabled the removal of the SD Card slot which is currently built into the units.
The addition of poling to Videofied means battery levels can be monitored remotely. Although lithium battery level reading is not 100% accurate, it will still give a good indication of when a unit's power is depleting.
Security: Units are installed with Tamper device. Like existing Videofied products, this will send a tamper alert through to the monitoring centre if the Loxal product is removed without warning or authorisation (IDACS+ enables up to 500 authorised users).
User interface: A light is installed on the front of the unit; when a correct code is entered the LED will illuminate to indicate that the code has been accepted. The LED will stay illuminated until the power cycle has been completed.
When setting the alarm, the LED will flash in time with the standardised alarm function configuration. This will give visual confirmation that the system is setting.
The existing beeps will still sound on IDACS+
Clock: Real time clock synchronisation to occur when App enabled product is
connected to unit. This keeps important audit data in time with real time operation.
All IDACS products can pair with the Videofied Alarm
