Johnson Controls introduces intelligent touchscreen access terminal

Intuitive touchscreen terminal provides intrusion control, legacy/smart modes for backward compatibility

Software House TST Touchscreen Terminal

MILWAUKEE  (September 20, 2017) –– Johnson Controls introduces its multi-functional Software House TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal, providing an enhanced end-user experience at the door. With an intuitive touchscreen user interface, native intrusion functionality and compatibility with both legacy and IP-based door controllers from Software House, the TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal adds value to the access control system by allowing users to have more flexibility and control at the reader level.

The TST-100 features a large, 4.3-inch graphical LCD touchscreen that displays a range of colorful icons and custom command menus, providing end users with quick and easy feedback of the access control operation, and allows guards and other individuals the ability to easily arm and disarm intrusion zones and issue custom commands directly at the door.

Built using the HID Global 5127 Mini multi-technology read head, the Touchscreen Terminal supports a range of highly secure smart card technologies, including HID iCLASS SE and iCLASS Seos. It uses high speed encrypted RS485 for secure communications to an IP controller, making it ideal for healthcare facilities, educational facilities, airports and other critical security environments where network connectivity directly to a reader on the unsecure side is not allowed.

“The TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal hits several targets of multi-functionality, advanced security and ultimate usability all within a sleek, user-friendly touchscreen interface,” said Rick Focke, senior product manager, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls. “With the TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal, we deliver to our ends users what they have come to expect from Software House – a high-end touchscreen terminal with functionality and depth that will continue to deepen in future version releases.” 

The TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal also offers intrusion functionality at the door without the addition of an intrusion interface, allowing end users to view arm/disarm intrusion zones on the device. A command menu provides end users with the ability to issue custom key commands to the intrusion system as well. The reader’s programming includes Johnson Controls’ Reliable Messaging (RM) protocol that facilitates compatibility with any iSTAR door controller. The Touchscreen Terminal can be added to any Software House platform, including the C•CURE 9000 Security + Event Management system, and can also be integrated with the victor Unified Client.

The TST-100 Touchscreen Terminal includes the IP-based Ethernet Access Control Door Module (IP-ACM) from Software House, which when installed near the doors it controls, establishes secure IP, network-based communications with iSTAR door controllers using cyber-secure AES encryption. The Touchscreen Reader’s IP-ACM door module also includes Power over Ethernet (POE) capability, helping to lower installation costs.
