Version 10 features
1. NEW 3RD PARTY INTEGRATIONS
With Version 10, emphasis has been placed on support for a balanced selection of devices and readers.With this version we believe we have one of the best 3rd-party hardware portfolios in the industry with the highest level of integration. And there’s more yet to come.
After providing full support for Morpho Sigma biometric terminals in version 8.50, it was logical that access control would be our next step. The newly released Sigma Lite
biometric readers are now fully supported for access control and time recording.
Spica is working closely with Assa Abloy on integration with their Aperio line of wireless locks. Version 10.0 provides support for integration via Aperio IP Hub
. Integration through Zone controllers is planned with version 10.20.
VisionLine is Assa Abloy’s hotel room lock system previously known as Vingcard. We have added support for VisionLine access points with version 10.10.
We have added support for biometric time clocks from Touchless Biometric Systems. More information is here
We took a generic professional Android device
with an NFC reader and turned it into a managed time clock. MATT gets OS and application upgrades from the cloud and can be troubleshooted directly from Spica. With MATT we are targeting users with a number of small remote offices where “proper” time clocks would not be economical.
For more information see the brochure.
We have also added support for IrisID
terminals for time tracking. Iris scanning is considered to be the most accurate method for biometric identification and so is robust enough to stand up to even the most demanding requirements. More information is available upon request.
With Version 8, we integrated Milestone
video surveillance into the Time&Space access control software client. With Time&Space Version 10, we have also added reciprocal functionality
by integrating access control into the Milestone XProtect software client. Now, access control and video surveillance are available in both clients. For more information see here
2. NEW ACCESS CONTROL FEATURES
For Version 10, our core focus for development was principally on access control. In a future version we will also place a special emphasis on time and attendance. Please visit our site regularly for further information.
This functionality was at the top of our feature request list. This allows users to toggle the door mode between being permanently open or permanently closed for a defined period.
In a nutshell, this feature gives you the ability to collect multiple input signals (10, for example) from one Zone Door device.
At times, multiple user credentials can create rather complex management situations. This feature change makes managing multiple user credentials and their associated access profiles faster and easier.
The service that provides real-time coordination between access control, time & attendance and 3rd party modules has been rewritten and improved in several ways. For example, it is now possible to use 3rd-party plugins.
3. GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS
Protecting data integrity is especially important when collecting personal data. Time&Space data access has been enhanced and is now available solely through the Time&Space SDK. More information
We have rebuilt and improved the real-time engine that handles access control signalling and communications. It is now much easier to implement and support various notification schemes and services.
We have a brand new Software Development Kit. More information is available here
