The EntroStar is the world's first PoE/PoE+ native BACnet access control panel. Designed to communicate with any ANSI/ASHRAE 135-2010 compliant system, EntroStar devices enable the merging of access control, security, and building management systems.

Offering simplified configuration and installation via auto-discovery, advanced diagnostic LEDs, and Power over Ethernet, the EntroStar enables integrators and other security professionals to provide cost-effective solutions to the end user. Ideal for small door-count applications, the system is also expandable to multi-site installations via StarWatch SMS software. Each EntroStar panel can monitor up to 2 doors, provide power for 4 readers and 2 locking devices via PoE+, and can easily be interconnected across an existing Ethernet network.
