An affordable “thin client” networked access control.
The HighpowerPico is a reader gateway; a simple thin client device that is in essence, a software virtualized door access controller. The Pico accepts Wiegand input and provides card lookup, scheduling and access level management using an Ethernet network connection to the Highpower Management System PC based server software. Because this door access control device has limited onboard intelligence outside of basic door functions, it is more affordable than traditional networked controllers, but also has the ability to expand out to a virtually unlimited number of doors and card IDs. It’s a good way to extend the HMS software suite to a single door.
With a good network and running server, the Highpower Pico provides reliable, high-level door access control functions via software, with functions that can be expanded as new software versions are introduced. The Pico door access control system uses Highpower’s proven HMS server software and client interface, which runs on a Windows operating system. HMS software also runs our offline devices, so many different types of hardware can be managed with the same software. The Pico is also compatible with third-party software for applications like tanning beds and club management.
The Pico is manufactured in our facility, and is Highpower Security Products’ own design, so our staff is able to make any design changes quickly, and we can adapt the product to new applications. We offer complete technical and deployment support for the platform direct from our offices, and are happy to respond to any customer requests.
