The Symmetry M4000 intelligent door controller is an open-source operating system that ensures complete system security, resilience, and reliability. It is comprised of a M4000-DBB Database (daughter) Board connected to a M4000-DEC4 Door Entry Controller board.

The Symmetry M4000 provides distributed intelligence for Symmetry Security Management Systems which can be used for simple applications to enterprise-wide deployments. The controller supports four doors, up to one million credentials, and 65,000 off-line transactions, which can be expanded further if required. Users can install multiple controllers to a single network connection with up to 20 readers, 80 inputs, and 64 outputs. The controllers will operate with Symmetry Access Control software V9.1 and above.

The Symmetry M4000 supports OSDP, Wiegand, and AMAG’s own MCLP reader communications, enabling organizations to install industry standard Symmetry access control software and modules and providing end users with the option to choose any card reader that fits their needs and requirements. It comes with an onboard 1Gb network interface with AES encryption capability. The communication distance from door controller board to Wiegand and OSDP readers is 325′.

Symmetry Sentry, a remote management tool, is available to allow web-based configuration, monitoring, and upgrading of the Symmetry M4000. This saves time and money by allowing the integrator to manage the controller from their office or an independent location.

“The Symmetry M4000 Intelligent Door Controller is designed to secure buildings of any size. The controller’s open-source operating system and API will allow any company to integrate it,” said AMAG Technology, Product Manager, Andy Goodwin. “The M4000 demonstrates AMAG’s commitment to providing open and standards-based solutions to our customers.”

Operating temperature for the Symmetry M4000 is 14°F to 131°F, 15% to 90% humidity, non-condensing. Excluding the enclosure, the database door controller measures 9.2″ W x 5.9″ H.

Two new enclosures are available to house two or four controllers.
