Wireless Access Management System (WAMS)

The Omnilock Wireless Access Management solution is designed for end users who want to run their access control application remotely. No need for hard-wiring! The Wireless Access Management solution (WAMS) can communicate to the Portal Gateways via Ethernet 10/100/1000 BaseT. The software application runs on an industry-standard host running Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP Professional using a non-licensed single user version of SQL. The WAMS also supports web services, thus an administrator can log onto the system and monitor the application from anywhere in the world.
