ACTAtek is 24/7 security management solution developed for various scenarios from residential to remote offices to multi-location offices - locally or worldwide. ACTAtek provides you with the ability to control, configure and administer your access control terminals / time clocks with any standard web browser over the corporate network or through the Internet.

ACTAtekTM is based on biometric fingerprint, smart card, and PIN with built-in CMOS camera authentication methods.

With all software and hardware built-in to the system, ACTAtek can be used in a standalone mode without the need of costly & complex dedicated architecture.

Network support from the reliable TCP/IP networking protocol allows ACTAtek to be operated in a multiple distributed device environment. ACTAtek provides you with the ability to control, configure and administer your properties with any standard web browser over the corporate LAN or through the Internet with real time data, with NO additional hardware or software installations.

ALL communication between the system and the web is extensively encrypted with SSL protection to provide additional security to users.
