KT-2 Using EntraPASS:

  • Advanced and Fully Integrated Access Control
    • Using EntraPass software a single KT-2 Controller can control two doors or can act as a ‘head IP controller’, linking together 31 additional controllers under one IP connection in EntraPass. This significantly reduces the number of IP connections required to EntraPass and reduces programming time in the software, thus creating installation cost benefits and a highly scalable solution.
  • One-Touch for Quick Connection to EntraPass
    • The KT-2 controller features a capacitive touch-sensitive button for plug-and-play installation. Simply provide an IP connection, push a single button and you’re done. There is no need to manually enter MAC/Serial numbers. With its innovative single-button programming, the controller is automatically detected and enrolled onto the EntraPass security management software (v8.40 and higher). Quickly connect using Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) protocol allowing the controller to be network discoverable without requiring the IP address.
      With its Ethernet port for direct network connection, its Power over Ethernet capabilities, the WiFi, and its unique single button programming, the KT-2 controller is up and running in just a few simple steps.
  • EntraPass Web & Go
    • Combine the KT-2 controller with EntraPass security management software and the EntraPass web and go mobile applications to create an innovative solution that installs quickly, can be managed remotely and provides a superior user experience. Admin users can connect via a web browser or a dedicated app on their smart phone/tablet and manage common security tasks wherever they are.
  • Alarm Panel Integration
    • DSC MAXSYS, PowerSeries, PowerSeries Neo and PowerSeries Pro alarm panel data integration can be accomplished by connecting it to the KT-2 controller. Using this controller; EntraPass Special, Corporate or Global Editions are able to receive intrusion events, view the status of zones and partitions, and program users’ code. In addition the system can be armed/disarmed (single or multiple partitions) via the reader or manual operation from the workstation.
  • Encrypted and Efficient Network Communication
    The KT-2 controller uses 128-bit AES encryption to protect communication. It also acts as a polling device to ensure the controllers communicate with EntraPass only as required, thus reducing network traffic. Flexible options allow KT-2 to connect to EntraPass via:

    • On-board IP (Ethernet) port
      RS-485 (COM1) port for communication between the EntraPass Gateway/ Kantech Network Communication Controller (KTNCC) and KT-1/KT-300/KT-400 door controllers.
