ACT365 receives Recommended Status in Benchmark Test

ACT365 was recently put through its paces by Benchmark, the installer-focused magazine.

Fresh from its win at the Benchmark Innovation Awards, the complete access control and video cloud solution received a “Recommended Status” in its review from the publication that puts the spotlight on innovative and smart solutions.

Review Highlights:

  1. From a user’s point of view, the flexibility and ease of access to ACT365 will be a benefit.
  2. Management of the sites and doors is simplified, and the depth of viewable reports will cover the clear majority of access control needs.
  3. For installers and integrators, the ability to assess the status of the system remotely and carry out relevant diagnostics does enhance the appeal of the system.
  4. During the period of the test we did not experience any issues with connectivity to the Cloud, and all access control transactions were accurate and consistent.
  5. Report updates were fast and no events were missed.


“Access control is a technology that either works or does not work. As such, regarding everyday performance, ACT365 works! It performs within all expectations of such a system, and remains fully operational when the link to the Cloud is down. When the connection is re-established, the transactional data is automatically uploaded.”

Verdict Summary:

  • Robust and resilient
  • Simple-to-use
  • Flexible
  • Cloud-based architecture
