Description and history
Axcess International, Inc. (Axcess), incorporated in 1982, provides wireless automatic identification and sensing solutions for business activity automation. When embedded into vehicle passes, property tags, personnel badges and sensors, its micro-wireless technology enables automatic local-area wireless data collection and control applications. The applications include hands-free access control, automatic advanced workforce management, and immersive entertainment, and workflow management, asset monitoring and distributed sensing.

Axcess supplies the radio frequency identification (RFID) system solutions, which connect directly into security systems or utilize the enterprise networks or the Internet. ActiveTag is a multi-use, single-system solution scalable for small, medium, and large enterprises. The system supports a range of automatic monitoring and tracking applications, including electronic asset protection and asset management, automatic personnel and vehicle access control, and wireless sensing.

ActiveTag uses small, battery-powered tags that, when automatically activated at control points throughout a facility, transmit a wireless message to palm-size receivers networked on an existing corporate local area network (LAN). Tag identification and location information are forwarded to a local security control panel or transmitted over the network to a host computer. ActiveTrac is an application software program that logs and displays the information from the tag to provide a comprehensive picture of the person, asset or vehicle being tracked. In addition, Axcess is continuing to develop OnlineSupervisor software, which has a browser-based display and provides real-time management solutions through reporting, display, and decision and control functions.

ActiveTag tracks assets as the assets enter, exit and move within a facility to monitor their whereabouts, detect theft and prevent loss. ActiveTag software can link assets and personnel together to provide a non-invasive, hands-free access control and asset protection solution at perimeter doors and other controlled entry and exit points. Personnel tags include a panic button for increased personal safety and peace of mind. This software can track vehicle and equipment movements to provide real-time, paperless logistics data and automated gate control. One version of the RFID tag includes an embedded temperature sensor inside to monitor and transmit measurement of ambient temperature or to signal when the temperature moves outside of a defined range. Another version of the RFID tag has external contacts so the tag can act as a wireless transmitter for external digital sensors.

The Onlinesupervisor software integrates the presentation of RFID data to a standard Web browser. Through a display customized to each user, real-time status is integrated with live and recorded digital video. Events that can be shown involve premises security, physical asset protection, personnel staffing, and operations performance. Each monitored event is linked to the database of recorded video files to enable the viewing of tagged events, such as personnel activity at door entrances and exits, access to controlled areas, and asset movements. The system is available as an enterprise solution or as a portal-based solution hosted by Axcess.

The applications for the Company’s products include automated workforce management solutions; automated fleet access control and data capture solutions, electronic asset protection and tracking, and automatic personnel identification. Hands-free automatic personnel identification and access control enables high speed facility entry and exit. Hands-free automatic vehicle identification and access control enables high speed facility entry and exit. Assets, such as computers are automatically tracked as they move throughout the facility and protected if they approach a perimeter door without authorization. Inventory items, such as pallets, crates, barrels and vessels, could be automatically located, identified, and tracked as they move, and protected against unauthorized removal. Long range credentials, which provide automatic identification, are playing a role customer loyalty systems, trade show attendee management and booth marketing, as well as in interactive amusement experiences.
