Access Control System NStar NS2 two door control panel only

The Honeywell Access Systems’ NStar™ NS2 is a totally new access control system designed to provide a cost effective solution for entry level applications plus the ability to seamlessly expand and adapt to future growth needs. The NStar system is composed of the new NS2 control panel and NStar access control software. With the NStar NS2 you can start small and easily expand and upgrade your access control system as your needs change.

The NStar NS2 controller is ideal for the needs of a small system application. It offers simplicity to satisfy basic application needs combined with state-of-the-art technology, processing power and speed not usually found in an entry-level product. NStar’s totally new architecture includes unprecedented scalability allowing for easy system expansions or future technology updates via a unique Xport expansion port. Whether you need to add doors or system functions, the NS2 gives you a clear path to future growth.

NStar software is a comprehensive access control application designed for use with the NS2 controller. NStar provides fast installation and setup with Quick Start Configuration Wizards and simple operation via user-defined control and viewing of system status and an event viewer for real-time observation of system activities. If you want to go beyond the basics, an option package that includes video badging, real-time alarm pop ups, digital video integration and networking is available to meet future needs.
