We are committed to providing our customers with the world's most open and innovative security solutions to help make more informed decisions and ultimately drive savings."
AccessXpert is a collaborative effort led by Schneider Electric with Mercury Security and Feenics, all contributing their unique expertise. Mercury Security's open hardware platforms make AccessXpert an affordable migration option for customers, including standardized integration to third-party security devices such as door hardware or intrusion detection. With a robust access control software platform from Feenics, AccessXpert moves into the cloud enabling access anywhere, anytime. Schneider Electric brings its long-standing commitment to integrated, smart buildings, integrating AccessXpert to its StruxureWare™ BMS software platform with full BACnet support.
