The module allows simple control of parking capacity cars. Cars belonging to a company is granted access as long as the assigned spaces are not fully occupied. For each car park is displayed a count of the number of lots available in real time. The movement of vehicles within each area of the parking lot can be followed in a dedicated screen. A message can be triggered when the maximum capacity of the parking has been reached.


The monitoring module enables you to control the guards supervisory circuit reaches a predefined checkpoints within certain deadlines. The arrival at a control point is notified by reading badge or activation of an input. If you arrive in a place has not been validated in time, the system automatically triggers a default process, informing the security personnel. Several patrols can be defined in parallel. The status of the service is available in real-time guard in the register, reports and in a dedicated screen.


The module allows you to control the elevators to the upper floors. The cardholder presents his badge to the reader mounted inside the cabin lift. Only planes buttons associated with the user profile will be activated. Each controller can manage up to 64 different levels. In the case of properties shared by different companies each specific program only allows the selection of plans assigned to the respective company and those for common areas (entrance, parking, restaurant ...).

Create and print badges

Using the graphics module of Amadeus 5 badge can be easily created, designed, edited and printed with a special badge custom badge printer. The professional tool Active Reports ® helps the user to move or add the fields on the badge layout, changing the background color, inserting logos and images. Different models of custom badge can be stored simultaneously in the same database.

Eter Access Control Systems


This module addresses the needs of large corporations. Each site is run individually, while at the same time, the central control of the access control system is easy to apply. The autonomy of the sites is guaranteed. Each site runs its own security system separately, is managed and queried independently communicates with its controller, and it works with or without communication with the central server.

The central database continually updates the database for each site independently. When a site changes its database, the central server is automatically informed of the changes. Only the relevant parts of the database are replicated at each site. In case of failure of communication, the system is able to update the database changes that had occurred during the system fault.

The multi-site works with or without multi-polling. Configurations in multi-polling, the data is automatically transmitted to the server locally, providing an advantage in case of communication error. If there is the danger of system errors is possible to implement the multi-site without multi-polling, allowing the realization of an infrastructure lighter.

Import database

This function allows you to import new users cardholders and modifications of existing from external databases that are usually managed by the human resources department.

The data Amadeus 5 can be automatically synchronized with the external database. Amadeus 5 simplifies the import of the information to be filtered in an intelligent manner: only the part of the data base relevant to the access control can be taken into account.

With a SQL query, you can define the fields to be imported from the external database, even if the labels of the corresponding fields differ between the two databases.

To ease the process of importing profiles from databases are provided two filters (HRAccess and HrExcel). Advanced users can create profiles of import through the development of DSN (Data Source Name) from the wizard automatically ODBC: all table formats can be adjusted to Amadeus 5. The software uses the standard tool ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity), thus all ODBC-compliant databases (MS-SQL, Oracle, MS-Access, MS-Excel, CSV, etc.) can be easily transferred to Amadeus 5.

Amadeus 5 also can create, edit and delete card holders via a web interface to receive an HTTP command from the external application.

SQL database

This module provides support through the powerful tool of MS SQL, with the flexibility and robustness needed for larger applications in terms of user card holders, protected ports and workstations, opening up possibilities far beyond the capabilities of the Access database default Amadeus 5.

The needs of multi-site installations and multi-server modules require SQL Server software and MS-SQL. Amadeus 5 is compatible with MS-SQL software 2000, 2005 and 2008.

Graph Alarm

Through the module Graphic +, the whole system can be presented graphically in various maps. A basic library of graphic symbols is included with the software module and others can easily be created or imported.

The module G+ offers maximum safety:

The doors are shown in a dynamic way with the update of the symbol based on the state of the door (open, closed, locked, in alarm, etc. ...).

The alarm symbols are updated according to the state of the alarm (alarm, acknowledged alarm, etc ...) A "double click" on any symbol defines the vision of an image associated with the activation of the alarm or action. Zoom in on a map or move from one map to another is easy.

The animated graphic symbols show whEter areas or maps are on the alert, if the controllers communicate the status of inputs and outputs. The network diagrams are created automatically, can be modified by users, and help to diagnose the status of the network controller.

The search function allows users to find symbols on the maps.
