TDSi Introduces GARDiS App for Additional Secure Access Control Flexibility
Designed as a complementary tool, the GARDiS App provides a number of features including People Management (add, edit, or delete users from access authorisation), Live Events information, Door Control, and Visual Verification, through compatible Android and Apple iOS devices. The App is the latest addition to TDSi’s GARDiS ecosystem of highly secure but flexible access control hardware and software solutions.
Reflecting upon the upcoming event, Nick Mercer, Marketing Manager at TDSi said, “With the development complete, The Security Event is the perfect opportunity for us to introduce our exciting new GARDiS App to the market and we are looking forward to presenting it to visitors at the show.”
The new GARDiS App adds additional flexibility to the range as Tina Baker, Software Project Manager at TDSi commented, “Like most other integrated systems, there is a considerable expectation of flexibility in the way secure access control systems are used and administered. The new GARDiS App is designed to deliver greater convenience and usability for security operators, without compromising on the secure dependability that the range already delivers. With many security systems being operated remotely to accommodate new ways of working, there is clear demand for greater control of these solutions via the smart device in your pocket.”
Designed for easy usability and backed up by highly secure encryption by utilising the personal authentication of the mobile device itself, the GARDiS App has been designed with the primary needs of security end users firmly in mind.
The GARDiS App displays all the people registered on the security network and their status. There is also an ability to instantly add, edit, or delete personnel records as required.
Live Events information
The App also provides live updates on events within the integrated security network, ensuring the security operator is always kept up to date on any activities taking place and the status of all the monitored facilities.
The App gives a clear view of all the applicable doors and associated locks and hardware, enabling the authorised person to open, close or bar individual or sets of doors as required.
Additionally, the GARDiS App also provides the security operator with a visual verification of security events so they can check the status if required. This is particularly useful if an alert has been triggered and needs to be investigated immediately.
Tina concluded, “The GARDiS software platform is still at the heart of the access control infrastructure and the new app is designed as a companion tool rather than a replacement. All the commands and data are fed via the main platform, but the GARDiS App now provides a highly usable, intuitive, and powerful alternative for monitoring operations and conducting the most frequent actions. Like the rest of the GARDiS range, the App will continually evolve and grow to meet the needs of our customers moving forwards.”
