'Bringing product innovation to the physical access control market is a natural step in Axis' development as there is a strong connection between access control and video surveillance. As the market leader in network cameras, Axis plays an important role in driving convergence to IP-based products in video surveillance.

Initially, Axis launches AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller in the US market in Q4 in 2013.
'Axis started its innovative quest back in 1984 by developing protocol converters and then continued to printers and storage devices before inventing and launching the first network camera in 1996. Although we now enter the physical access control market, our focus will continue to be on network video products. We expect physical access control sales to represent a small, but important, part of our total business,' said Mauritsson.
Further features of the AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller include:
Open architecture that allows easy integration of video, intrusion detection and other systems.
Support for Power over Ethernet to reduce the need for separate power cables and proprietary cables.
Cardholder data and system configurations are automatically stored and synchronised between controllers and the units can be managed from any computer in the system.
Enabler for an 'edge' solution with one controller for each door and a fixed price per door. It is fully scalable, eliminating the traditional central controller multiple of 4, 8, 16 or 32 doors.
Support for most existing reader protocols and reader types, and standard IT and security equipment such as door locks and door position sensors.
The installation wizard and the colour coded connectors help users to complete the installation and verify that door locks, readers and other equipment are connected properly.
The API is designed for compliance with ONVIF Profile C, which will enable interoperability between clients and devices of physical access control systems (PACS) and network-based video systems.
