How does XPressEntry work?The XPressEntry system includes:
- XPressEntry Server – XPressEntry's admin console for handheld device / system management and reporting, view access control activity and facility occupancy, and maintains a connection with any access control system.
- XPressEntry Handhelds / Clients: XPressEntry’s clients run either on Telaeris’ rugged handheld badge reading device with a built-in RFID reader for any badge technology and biometrics and maintains a connection with the XPressEntry server.
XPressEntry integrates with the ProtegeGX access control system and pulls all relevant access control information such as cardholders, new and deleted badges, pictures, access levels, areas, and more. XPressEntry handhelds validate permissions and authenticate credentials against this identity information on record in the ProtegeGX database and maintain facility occupancy information.
XPressEntry records all activity occurring on every handheld device or client and pushes this information to the ProtegeGX database. Simultaneously, XPressEntry pulls any new activity from the ProtegeGX database and pushes this information to all connected devices. As a result, the XPressEntry Server, connected handheld and client devices, and ProtegeGX always remain in sync. Each XPressEntry client device stores this information locally on the device so it can continue to work offline if necessary and will sync once connectivity is reestablished.
The XPressEntry Server is constantly pulling the latest ProtegeGX information. The initial data sync may take a longer time for large systems, but subsequent syncs happen very quickly as XPressEntry only pulls new and updated information. Once the XPressEntry Server pulls this data, it immediately pushes the information out to all connected XPressEntry client devices. Activities recorded on one XPressEntry client device or data updated from ProtegeGX will reach all available client devices within a few seconds. This makes the system ideal for Emergency Mustering or ensuring that only the correct people have access to the connected client devices.
