eMerge dealer

eMerge is an Integrated Security Management System with embedded software. It combines powerful systems integration with an easy-to-use web browser interface. The Linux operating system, Postgre SQL database and web server, all embedded in the eMerge solid-state platform, make it both easier to use and more powerful than legacy access control and security systems. eMerge employs state-of-the-art encryption and authentication technology to ensure secure communications. Standard industry wiring is employed throughout the system. eMerge is a network appliance that IT managers approve. Everything you need to install and manage the system is embedded within the Network Controller. There’s no server software, no client software, no gateways, no new communication wiring to install, no plug-in hardware adapters for connectivity and no software compatibility issues to deal with. All which ensure lower long-term cost of ownership compared to other systems.
