Cost-Effective Access Control Solutions for ICIDS SCIFs

Utilizing StarWatchâ„¢ SMS software and equipment already installed in each Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) within the ICIDS program, Special Security officers can seamlessly expand the scope of on-site security to include access control and video monitoring. In addition to the standard intrusion detection system (IDS), the platform in use at all SCIF locations includes a proven access control (ACS) software module for personnel management, card/door monitoring, and strict control of all access points. Under your existing license, simply connect a StarWatch access control panel to your SCIF to include this ACS functionality, with the benefits of a centralized database and a common software interface for operators. Supporting numerous reader and card designs, the system enables rapid integration with existing credentials, removing the need to create new cards.
