Introducing: Active Witness

Written by Aly Beach Wednesday, October 4, 2023 Posted in General

Facial authentication, mobile credentials, and video intercom. A cloud-based access control in one sturdy package - Active Witness is an all-in-one solution for many situations, and it's now available at Aartech.


What is SIMA?

Sima is an integrated cloud-based access control reader that operates on Active Witness software and leverages multi-factor credentials for customized and convenient facility access.

With SIMA, you can manage access from anywhere, with any device. It is simple to use, set up and operate, making it a cost-effective access control option. Thanks to its cloud-based software, SIMA can also scale based on your needs. Active Witness offers built-in:

  • QR Scanner
  • Facial Reader
  • Doorbell & Intercom
  • Two-way Audio
  • Plug & Play PoE Connection


Problem? The SIMA Solution

SIMA is ideal for small to mid-size businesses looking for a custom and convenient access control solution. Looking to ditch keys and key cards to avoid needing to replace them when they're inevitably lost? Or looking to customize access in a busy or sensitive location? With a noticeably more rugged and durable housing, you can feel confident mounting Active Witness anywhere.


How does it work?

SIMA allows admins to set up simple digital keys, use video intercom at the door and provides an easy-to-use cloud-based software. It can function using a smartphone, keyfob, or simple intercom button, allowing for flexibility in the event someone loses a key or forgets their phone. Users can flash a one-of-a-kind QR code, look at the SIMA device and be granted access in a number of seconds using facial authentication.


What makes Active Witness different?

Active Witness and SIMA offer flexibility and customizability that is unlike a lot of industry-standard picks. With the multi-authentication option and cloud-based access, the system is easy and convenient to use while remaining secure and safe.


No two buildings or access points are exactly the same - neither are your employees. Active Witness can meet your needs without compromising convenience.
