Tyco brings CEM brand to Americas
Tyco Security Products announced that it is bringing its popular brand of CEM Systems access control products to the Americas.
CEM solutions have been sold primarily in EMEA and Asia for over 25 years. Their first to market innovative hardware and software solutions have been extremely popular with security-conscious airports which use a custom version of CEM’s flagship AC2000 access control solution.
“CEM’s solutions have been an extremely important part of Tyco Security Products security portfolio in Europe, the Middle East and the Asia Pacific region for many years. Their solutions have been very popular in applications requiring a higher degree of customization, particularly in the enterprise space,” said Mike Ryan, President of Tyco Security Products. “We’re pleased to be able to expand the reach of these solutions globally as an intrinsic part of our end to end security offering.”
One of the most exciting introductions in the CEM portfolio is the emerald intelligent multifunctional IP access terminal that provides more at the door. The first of its kind, emerald is a Touchscreen Reader, Door Controller, VOIP Intercom and System Terminal all in a single box. The innovative touch-screen LCD is the first of its kind to ‘greet’ cardholders by illuminating as they approach, providing a user friendly security experience. For the first time, security professionals can use remote apps at the device to update personnel records, book meeting rooms, and even send important messages to cardholders such as Wrong Door, Lost/Stolen Card, Expiring Card and Access Granted. emerald also acts as an information point by displaying general company information and audible prompts to enhance user experience.
The suite will be on display for the first time in North America at the upcoming ASIS Conference & Exhibition where it has already been awarded 2014 Security’s Best Award in the ASIS Accolades contest. The company will be demonstrating emerald and the rest of the CEM portfolio at booth #710.
