EDGE IP ACCESS SOLUTIONS. THIS IS SECURITY’S SIMPLE, SCALABLE
AND FLEXIBLE SOLUTION FOR TODAY’S IT CENTRIC ENVIRONMENT.
Today, IP-based building access has IT and Security working together. The benefits of EDGE™
are easy for both to see. Take a look at these true benefits to making an EDGE IP Access
Solution the answer at the door – and on the network.
• An EDGE IP Access Solution is a Flexible Solution. EDGE IP Access Solutions provide a
comprehensive line of reader/controller configurations that can be tailored to the requirements of any enterprise.
• Every EDGE IP Access Solution has Scalability Built In. You can use an EDGE IP Access Solution
to plan for virtually any future card/reader changes, too. Or facility expansion. Select from the many
choices of host software on the expansive OPIN™ platform.
• Lowest Total Cost of Ownership. EDGE IP Access Solutions have the lowest, per door cost for an
IP-based access control deployment. Simplified installation, standard wiring, and the ability to leverage the
existing network, virtually guarantees an investment in EDGE is money well spent.
• Fly Solo. Or go with the Host. EDGE IP
Access Solutions accommodate any size or
complexity of enterprise.
“Let’s put our doors on
EDGE for the best Access
Optimization. And we’ll save
money too.”
Choose EDGE Solo if your business has a few
doors and a few hundred employees. Then manage your access over a standard web browser.
The bigger, more complex enterprise? Our
worldwide alliance of development partners will
put you into a host solution built on our
established OPIN API.
In transition? You can start with EDGE Solo and
remotely reconfigure it to EDGE Host, without
going out to the door.
And both EDGE Solo and EDGE Host allow for
migration to a different host environment or
reader configurations as your
access demands evolve.
HID LEADERSHIP IN NETWORKED ACCESS SOLUTIONS IS FRONT AND CENTER
HID Networked Access Solutions has a substantial part in today’s shift toward open architecture physical access technologies.
Our success here extends the HID commitment to the new, IP driven security environment.
• Life is CAT-5 Simple on the EDGE. EDGE is simplicity.Traditional installation of a CAT-5 or 6 cable
runs everything at the door -- right through the EDGE. No more bundles of wires converging at a controller
in an already overcrowded IT closet. Intelligence at the door means freedom from the closet and the costs of
proprietary cable installation requirements.
• Yes. PoE Power,Too! All EDGE IP Access Solutions can supply up to 600 milliamps of 12 volt DC power
to run locking hardware.Your choice to use a separate power supply or EDGE PoE power capabilities.
• Pick a Card. Any Card. Whether the enterprise is iCLASS®, Prox, FlexSmart®, FlexPass®, MIFARE®/DESFire,®
CRESCENDO™ or any wiegand output reader; there’s an EDGE IP Access Solution for you today. And EDGE
can allow for any transitions to new card/reader capabilities you plan for the future, too.
The Magic Of The HID OPIN™ Platform. Open
Architecture That Makes Every IP Solution
Flexible, Scalable And Migration Friendly.

robust protocol.
“And IT will make
sure that works on
the network right ?”
Now EDGE IP Access Solutions bring OPIN front-and-center allowing
Security and IT functions to optimize enterprise access effectively –
together. With full confidence that the enterprise can select the right
software solution as security requirements change. OPIN is your
assurance of open architecture and choices.

GO TO THE EDGE WITH A SINGLE CAT WIRE. REALLY, ONE WIRE.

just getting to the door. Here’s how a traditional topology looks . . .

8Wiring is solely for the access control system.
It can’t be used for other purposes.
8The IT closet gets wraps of wire, conduit feeds, controllers
and power supplies into an already crowded space.
“We’ll just run a single
CAT-5 wire instead of
this bulky bundle.”
8Controllers and dedicated power supplies get centrally located
to conserve costs resulting in long cable runs up to 500 feet.
8With a single point of failure, one controller can take
down all the readers and doors connected to it.
8Wiegand data can’t manage higher-level reader functions.
Read/write, driving LCD displays, or sharing activity
with other system devices isn’t in the cards.
8Each component at the door requires a separate home run cable
back to the controller. A complicated, time consuming installation.
HID PUTS INTELLIGENCE AT THE DOOR THROUGH THE STRONGEST
DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIPS IN THE WORLD OF ACCESS

8 Ethernet driven. Owned and maintained by IT. And that holds true to the door.
8 Standard CAT-5/6. Eliminates specialty cabling from the door to the closet.
“Now it’s part of the
IT infrastructure!”
8 Go from the nearest IT closet to the door. Eliminating dedicated locations
for controllers and power supplies.
8 Just a PoE switch goes in the closet. It’s a simple installation for IT.
8 CAT-5 cable gets run to the door like all other building wire. And regard
less of distance you have every card and reader option, including read/write.
8 Power into the EDGE can come right over the Ethernet.
8 Everything at the door wires right into the EDGE, for quick installation.
8 Each door has EDGE controlling activity, eliminating a single point of failure
disrupting multiple doors. An ongoing issue with today’s centralized controllers.
8 IP to the door means higher-level card/reader functions
without special wiring or controller proximity issues.
EDGE Solutions allow each of these dynamic partnerships to reach a new level of customer satisfaction. Now
with a truly open IP architecture, their EDGE solutions assure unprecedented scalability, flexibility and cost savings.
