Bosch has given a more user-friendly interface to its Access Professional Edition
(APE) software solution to allow an even more efficient use of its state-of-the-art
feature set.

New APE 3.4 enables installers and system integrators to manage access control. It
goes way beyond locking and unlocking of doors. It allows a large number of
functionalities from reception registration, badge registration and entrance control
to entrance monitoring, alarm management and video verification.

Though the software solution has retained all of its functionality, its new interface
offers a more streamlined, user-friendly experience as it reduces a variety of
potentially distracting features by using a smaller range of colours. Other changes
include a more efficient and faster updating and reducing of the number of outdated
icons and toolbars to further facilitate navigation, while keeping the access control
solution’s capabilities.

APE is a complete and comprehensive security solution as it can be integrated with
other building management and security functions like elevator management and
intrusion protection. It is also enabled for seamless integration into the Milestone
xProtect video management software.

APE 3.4 is ideal for entry to mid-scale access control needs in industrial,
commercial or retails buildings, especially where the full and more complex feature
set of Bosch’s Building Integration System (BIS) is not required.
