HR application programming interfaces (API)

The HR API enables third-party business applications to communicate with SiPass integrated and exchange common information, which eliminates the need to enter identical data into multiple applications. The interface provides users with more flexibility to assign access rights, manage cardholders, venues, venue bookings and other access control data in SiPass integrated via 3rd party applications, and allows easy automatic syncronisation between these systems to be accessed and modified using a Web browser or human resources system, for example.

Cardholder data management and web interface

Entering cardholder data into the SiPass integrated system is an easy process. If required, you can even assign multiple cards to a single cardholder. The custom page design tool allows for very flexible page layout via drag-and-drop configuration, including parameter settings for individual fields, buttons and different operator groups. It is also possible to import or export your custom pages in XML format between SiPass integrated systems. Additionally, via the web interface, card holders, venues and venue bookings can be managed, offering complete flexible management.

Venue and Venue booking

With a similar user interface to the Microsoft Outlook calendar, the Venue and venue booking platform provides a concise overview of reservations, and minimises operator workload by offering efficient, simultaneous cardholders and booking management without the requirement for 3rd party applications.

Enhanced access assignment

SiPass integrated MP2.65 offers enhanced access assignment, with the possibility to assign multiple temporary, permanent and personal access groups and levels to cardholders directly via the HR API. This also includes Room booking functionality, Cardholder and room booking management via a new Web interface and the ability to see memory consumption of the central controller (ACC). It offers multiple benefits including more flexibility when assigning temporary access groups, as well as the possibility to manage room bookings in a flexible way.

Other Features

SiPass integrated MP2.65 provides other features such as:

  • CCTV command mapping
  • Flexible and programmable interface to external RS232 enabled systems (including Visilynx)
  • DVR API enhancements including IO and sensor points from DVR cameras and auto config upload from DVRs

Customer Benefits:

  • Ability to tailor your access control system to meet the most intricate requirements of any facility
