CredoID – Open Platform Access Control

The open platform access control and security software

With CredoID, you choose the most appropriate identification – card, PIN, number plate, biometric or mobile ID, – you decide system capacity and maintenance period. CredoID gives you full control of your project integration, installation and, ultimately, ROI.

CredoID, has been designed to provide an Open Platform Enterprise Level access control and security platform expandable from one door to thousands of doors. Working hand in hand with HID’s new AERO access control hardware as well as Mecury and Suprema. CredoID is exclusively distributed in Australia and NZ by ISCS.

The core of every solution is our access control software CredoID, which is easily expandable by additional modules for time & attendance, video surveillance, burglar alarm, vehicle and elevator control, ID card design & printing, maps and scripts.

CredoID provides an easy way to install security systems of any size. Our open platform solution supports full range of HID EVO Edge, VertX Evo & Aero and Mercury LP EP Series controllers and extension modules, wireless Aperio locks. CredoID also supports integration with DigiFort VMS, alarm panels from ASB security and DigiFort LPR. CredoID software integrates the functions of access control, alarm monitoring and time & attendance in one package.

Features and Benefits

Access Control System

  • Mix-and-match devices:
    Seamlessly use classic HID VertX Evo, Edge Evo or Mercury EP series devices with the latest HID Aero or Mercury LP series controllers and modules or ASB Security panels.
  • OSDP v2 support: connect readers securely via encrypted communication, customize reader LED and buzzer behavior, manage templates.
  • Vehicle control: Store vehicle details, track movement, generate reports.
  • Manual verification of permissions: In case of a lost card verify user permissions for any door by entering name or employee number.
  • IP controller support: Enjoy high speed uploads, PoE flexibility, fault tolerance, unlimited expansion, and other benefits of IP-based solutions.
  • Effective use of hardware resources: Each controller or reader receives only the segment of data that concerns its operation. IOs
  • Fault tolerance: No external failures will impact an individual node, and a failure of any node will not impact the rest of the system.
  • Hardware-independent system configuration: Replace a failed device with another make without system disruption and use the single interface for their management.
  • Anti-passback: Hard (no re-entry) and soft (re-entry allowed with operator notification) modes supported.
  • ID card design and printing (badging).
  • Elevator management: control elevators up to 128 floors, set schedule-based access rights.
  • Child security: Send alerts to parents every time their child enters or leaves school territory.
  • Holidays: Multi-day holiday and recurrence settings.

Expansion & Integration

  • IP-based video management systems.
  • Built-in reader cameras.
  • IP-based burglar alarm systems.
  • Data links to HR, accounting, ERP and other systems.
  • Web service API.
  • XML data import & export.
  • Automatic import & update of users from CSV files or Active Directory.
  • Vehicle License Plate Recognition systems. Application of all access control rules to vehicles, including: access levels, activation/expiration dates, use limit, operator confirmation, occupancy limits and others.
  • LPR OCR error compensation. Handle optical license plate recognition errors by using flexible matching and wild-card characters.
  • Digital scales support: user/vehicle weight as an additional verification factor.
  • Programmable triggers: any event (or double/triple identical events) may be used to trigger automatic actions.
  • Support for indoor/outdoor LED display boards: show building or parking occupancy data.
  • Unlimited expansion in terms of users, PC workstations, readers, alarm inputs and outputs.
  • Unlimited number of cards, finger templates, PIN’s, vehicle license plates per user.
  • Smooth growth. Purchase or upgrades of expensive master controllers or software licenses not required.
  • Backwards and forwards compatibility: no need to replace old generation readers/controllers in order to add more controlled points.
  • Support for major security hardware manufacturers. Ability to mix hardware of different manufacturers in the same system.
  • System partitioning. Divide a system into “Locations” or “Sites” for convenient and secure administration by multiple operators.
