About Viscount's Freedom Access Control Solutions
The Freedom access control system is a server-based software application that communicates over IP on an existing or dedicated IT network infrastructure. A Freedom Bridge connects the door hardware to the IT network and provides encrypted communication to servers. All system configuration, administration and monitoring is performed using a common Web browser. Simplified architecture reduces system complexity and lowers total cost of ownership.
Freedom represents a paradigm shift in the approach to access control system architecture. The control software and databases are hosted on physical or virtual servers entirely visible to stakeholders. This replaces the traditional method of installing control firmware and a database on proprietary access control panels. Moreover, with Freedom, multiple synchronized servers ensure built-in resiliency.
