HID Global launches EDGE EVO Solo IP-enabled solution

HID Global on Monday announced the release of its EDGE EVO Solo IP-enabled solution

EDGE EVO Solo IP-enabled solution enables a range of access control functionality, including real-time monitoring, report generation and the use of the system hardware for complimentary applications.

In addition, EDGE EVO Solo, a remotely managed stand-alone solution that utilizes a standard web browser, does not require software to be installed on PCs.

HID Global said it provides the ability to power all devices around a door using Power over Ethernet (PoE), reducing total door installation costs by removing the need to install a separate, dedicated power supply.

EDGE EVO Solo utilizes less expensive CAT5 wiring compared to traditional structured cable, and it can be upgradeable to an EDGE EVO Host solution as access control demands increase.

“Offering the convenience of contactless physical access control along with PC login and a variety of additional smart card-enabled applications, EDGE EVO Solo is ideal for small- and medium-sized businesses managing a single door for ten to hundreds of cardholders,” said John Fenske, vice president of Product Marketing, Physical Access Control with HID Global.

The company said EDGE EVO Solo is available in controller-only and controller/reader and form factors that support a full range of card and reader options. It includes global regulatory certifications and is localized in 12 languages for use in major markets around the world.
