Supporting the Anson Integrated Door Control System

Anson Integrated Control systems are commonly installed in Canada and are a cost effective solution for building access. Anson has fully pulled out of North America and so there is little commercial support available. HELIA does support Anson building access system and resolves door access issues and configuration and programming issues. We also replace defective Anson components.

If you're looking to manage the Anson Access Control System remotely, we can help. Even through there is no readily available web access, we've setup secure VPN connections and secure cloud hosting to allow the Anson software to be securely managed remotely so adding cards and checking audit logs can be easily done without visiting the building site.

Anson Credential Readers

Anson ASR-2660W Credential Reader

The Anson controllers and credential readers are Wiegard 26bit standard. This is a very common industry standard and we have tested their interoperability with other brand controller to be used both as replacement for defective credential readers and controllers. The most common credential reader we have seen in Canada is the ASR-2660W reader. This is an older model from Anson but works well and delivers as expected. The credential reader is placed at a door or entrance way and reads the issued credentials whether they be FOBs, cards or other to determine if access is to be granted.

Integration with the Door Guard Intercom System

The Door Guard Intercom System is a common main door intercom system for multi-family residential buildings. The DoorGuard system will integrate with the Anson system and allows the guest of a resident to look-up a resident and intercom resident to their cell phone and have the resident grant access and release the door. The Door Guard system can be integrated with the Anson Access Control System.

Anson Two and Four Door Controllers

Anson ASC=DL24 Access Controller

The Anson ASC-DL24 is a very common controller in Canada. It provides 4 door access control which is much better than usual compared to other competitive products available in Canada. Most other access controllers are single or dual doors only and require additional controller units to be added in order for the system to control additional doors. The controller is well built and the quality is adequate. There has been a support issue for the Anson product as they don't have North American support or distribution and their direct-to-China email support usually takes 48 hours or more to receive a response. To that end, many user tend to replace the controller with units with North American support resources. The Anson credential reader, door latches and cabling are all industry standard and if the choice is made to replace the access controllers, it can be done with minimal impact. HELIA does provide replacement and training for alternative access controller systems.

Anson Controller Software

A key component of the Anson Access controller is the Windows based software. The software must be installed in order to register the credials for individual users, configure the doors and access and view the logs. There is no web interface available for Anson and so the software and Windows computer is required.

I have collaborated with Darvin on several breakthroughs and forward-looking IT projects to which he ALWAYS came through with a solution where there appeared not to be as concepts were more advanced than current technologies.

His thought processes is methodical and detailed, approach is ethical and professional and solutions driven. He deliverers what he said he would, on time and on budget.

Derek Herman

Apart from being a perfect gentleman , Darvin is a highly detailed IT perfectionist.A pleasure to work with.

Robert Barte

I have worked with Dar on many occasions and he has proven himself over and over again to be a man of integrity and someone who is very knowledgable in his field. I would strongly encourage you to talk to him regarding IT Support and phones services in Alberta.

When we use Helia they exceed our expected deliverables and always within our agreed to budget. They work with us, not just for us, all the while keeping our best interests as a company at the core of the project.

We had been looking for a company that not only could get the job done as promised, on time and on budget but one that came with integrity. Helia provides us with a "mean what you say and say what you mean" attitude that has forged a relationship, not just a contract for a project. Our partners at Helia far exceed our expectations each and every time. So if you're thinking of using Helia, I would highly recommend you give them a try, I am sure you'll be impressed. Please email me if you'd like some more insight into Helia.

Grant Irvine

"Darvin and the folks at Helia were asked to resolve some issues with our phone system software. They provided the necessary support through collaboration and by learning the software from a different market to specifically service our system. Additionally, Helia now provides our IT support services. We are very pleased with the services provided by Helia Tech and Helia Voice."

Al Dhalla

My company has hired Dar for telephone wiring services and yes, he met our expectations but there is something more about Dar that I wish to highlight : He is a not just a true networker but I would say, he is a "connector".

Dar and I have been at many meetings and he has never failed to say to me that he wants me to meet 3 or 4 people that he knows are ideal clients for me and that will make a difference to my business and profits.Without expecting any favors too! Dar goes that extra mile to keep a business relationship nurtured and strengthened.

Ryan Dockrill

Helia has been fabulous for us as a company. We have used them on five different projects now, and I am extremely impressed not only with the quality of the deliverables, but in some ways more importantly their can-do attitude and ability to implement our ideas when others thought them impossible.

I recommend them whole heartedly. Helia Technologies is a company that over-delivers on every aspect of the project at hand at a price point that is hard to beat.

Please email me if you have any questions about Helia Technologies.

Ted Tederoff

Darvin is a very well rounded contributor in terms of his strong skills both in the business and technical realms. He also has an engaging personality that is at the same time politely confident and warm. He also keeps all stakeholders in mind when delivering a project. I would count it an honour to work with him again in the future.
