Utilising 2N as an Access Control System

Why choose 2N?

2N have a focus on the IP market, meaning that all of their intercoms and access control units are IP-enabled, allowing for far easier management and installation of the units.

What options are available?

Keypad – There are mechanical keypads and touch-sensitive keypads available, allowing the user to enter their PIN in order to gain access to the building.

RFID – There are several standards that the 2N readers work with, allowing the user to swipe their fob or ID card, or even their smartphone in NFC-enabled reader, to gain access to the building.

Fingerprint – Arguably the most secure option, 2N’s fingerprint reader ensures that no-one can gain access to the wrong areas.

Bluetooth – Paired with a user’s smartphone, the Bluetooth option allows for very secure entry, as it can be set to have the user unlock their smartphone in order to input a code before the door will open. It can also allow opening from a distance which would be useful on vehicle gates where getting out of the vehicle is inconvenient.

As well as access control, you can purchase a matching reader to go inside the door and build an accurate clocking in/out system, you can even purchase more than one method of authentication to make your premises more secure.

2N Automation: Wake on LAN

We recently set up our 2N IP Vario to wake up our computers when we scan our key fobs to enter the office. This means that our employee’s computers are switched on and ready to go before they even arrive at their desk.

We did this by writing a web app which uses the ‘Wake on LAN’ protocol, this was then added to 2N’s automation feature. ‘Wake On LAN’ is an existing protocol supported by many desktop computers.

Once a user scans their key fob on the IP Vario it then sends a HTTP request to our web app that includes the id of the key fob. The app then finds which user has scanned into the building by looking up the id of the key fob which was used and finds the associated user. With the username, the app then looks up the mac address for that user’s computer which calls Wake On LAN to broadcast a magic packet across the network. If the PC has power but is not turned on the computer will then boot.

Here is an example of the config we set up in our IP Vario’s automation:

<automation><row><name>Event.CardEntered</name><value>Card=valid;</value></row><row><name>Action.SendHttpRequest</name><value>Event=1; Uri=http://webapp.provu.co.uk?Id=$(1.Card)</value></row></automation>
