Kaba Access Control Alarm Interface

Kaba Alarm Interface

The Kaba Alarm Interface Unit solves one of the toughest problems with securing a building — false alarms. By fully integrating biometric access control with the alarm system, Kaba Alarm Interface units eliminate many of the common causes of false burglar alarms. Before someone enters a building, the individual turns off the alarm through our biometric reader, the Fingerprint Key. This ensures that individuals do not enter the building without disarming the alarm, and only those who are authorized to turn on/off the alarm can enter.

According to the Department of Justice, U.S. police respond to approximately 36 million alarm activations annually, costing municipalities an estimated $1.8 billion. Of these 36 million calls, 98 percent are false alarms. The Kaba Alarm Interface Unit helps reduce false alarms by minimizing the No. 1 cause — user error.

False Alarms Eliminated

  • Before entering facility via access control, alarm is disarmed at Fingerprint Key
  • Alarm system armed/disarmed with full authentication through Fingerprint Key
  • I.AM Fingerprint Key offers a level of authentication that truly eliminates false alarms. This level is unobtainable by Card and PIN.
  • Fingerprint biometrics = authentication
  • System armed/disarmed from exterior Fingerprint Key, eliminating time pressure
  • Only authorized users can arm or disarm from Fingerprint Key
  • Supervisor first
  • Access group does not validate user
