Mercury Security Launches Hardware Solution for "Screwdriverless" Migration to Open, Interoperable Access Control Systems

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2016) - ASIS International 2016 -- Mercury Security, a global leader in OEM access control hardware, today announced its new MS Bridge series of Authentic Mercury hardware for "screwdriverless" upgrades from legacy Software House iSTAR Pro systems to open, interoperable access control. The MS Bridge includes multi-device interface panels that leverage most of the existing legacy system infrastructure, enabling a direct board swap for migration. The award-winning solution provides end-user customers a cost-effective and streamlined path to move beyond the limitations of proprietary hardware for feature-rich access control.

"Advances in technology and acquisitions within the industry are increasing end-user demand for more flexible access control systems that can keep pace with changing marketing dynamics and business requirements," said Matt Barnette, President of Mercury Security. "Our new solution is built on the Authentic Mercury open platform designed for interoperability, so organizations can take advantage of new features and functionality available today, as well as future technology and enhancements down the road."

To help organizations protect their access control investment, the MS Bridge eliminates as many of the system installation requirements as possible-including the need to re-wire legacy devices in order to reduce the impact of system changeover. The Authentic Mercury model also provides the freedom for customers to choose from industry-leading access control software providers, both at time of product selection and in the future as their needs evolve.

The MS Bridge multi-device interface panels are designed to fit the specific physical parameters of Software House's iSTAR Pro Series access systems. To upgrade, customers simply disconnect the Software House iSTAR Pro board and connect the appropriate Mercury MS Bridge panel for an easy, "screwdriverless" changeover to the Authentic Mercury open platform.


The new MS Bridge for Software House iSTAR Pro is available through Mercury Security's partner network. Click here for more product information.
