W&T network servers integrated into Axxon Next VMS
The Axxon Next open VMS platform, developed by AxxonSoft, now includes full support for Web-IO hardware manufactured by W&T, a German company.
Web-IO Digital servers use dry contacts to connect external sensors (inputs) and actuators (relays).
Web-IO Digital servers interface with Axxon Next over a Ethernet network, allowing Axxon Next to remotely manage fire and security alarm hardware, access control devices, and other security equipment via the servers.
Support for the following W&T servers has been integrated into Axxon Next:
- Web-IO Digital 12xIn, 12xOut – the server supports connecting 12 sensors (in) and 12 relays (out).
- Web-IO Digital 12xIn, 6xOut – the server supports connecting 12 sensors (in) and 6 relays (out).
- Web-IO Digital 2xIn, 2xOut – the server supports connecting 2 sensors (in) and 2 relays (out).
When a server is integrated with Axxon Next, relay control (circuit opening and closing) and monitoring of sensor status (triggered alarms) are performed through the Axxon Next graphical interface.
Axxon Next allows incorporating sensor readings into automatic reactions to security events: for example, when a security sensor is triggered, the closest camera can start recording and the electronic entrance lock can be shut.
Web-IO Digital device integration takes place over the HTTP API.
Support is available in versions 3.1.0 and later of Axxon Next.
According to the developers, this integration offers a number of opportunities thanks to the immense demand for Web-IO Digital hardware, particularly in Western Europe.
