  • Real-time tracking

    Track identities in real-time using badging activity to locate their whereabouts inside and outside a facility, at a muster point or virtual station.

Unity Access on-premise appliances

Hardened, Linux-based servers are ready to go from initial plug in. Start by choosing necessary components on individual appliances, then scale up by adding more doors as your facility grows.

Enterprise & Enterprise Plus

The Unity Access Enterprise and Enterprise Plus appliances are ideal for medium to large systems. 

Businesses with complex or geographically distributed systems may require multiple appliances to manage access and ensure safety and security in and around their facilities. Unity Access facilitates this by automatically synchronizing the access data between appliances. By utilizing the hot standby auto-failover feature, businesses can ensure the safety of their data across all locations at all times.


The Unity Access Professional appliances are suited for small-sized systems with up to 32 readers. 

Professional appliances are ideal for businesses looking to start with a small desktop machine and expand as their business grows. Its compact size allows the appliance to be readily installed in small spaces with efficient power consumption while delivering powerful access control features.


The Unity Access Virtual appliances are designed for organizations that have migrated their IT infrastructure to a secure, private cloud environment. 

Virtual appliances are Partner Ready for VMware vSPHERE and support Microsoft Hyper‑V for deployment on a virtual server. This eliminates the need to maintain a separate, stand-alone server or dedicated network appliance – providing a scalable design while reducing capital and operating expenditures. Virtual appliances enable customization of all the configurations, allowing businesses to easily add more resources to the virtual appliance as their on-premise access control systems grow and their needs change.
