Tech Feature: Kantech EntraPass

kantech entrapass tech feature blog header

Kantech has been an industry leader in access control since 1986.  Over the past 30 years, we have seen Kantech’s device technology evolve, and so to has their user interface, EntraPass.  EntraPass is Kantech’s software suite, which allows customers and integrators to design and operate their access control systems.

In January of this year, Kantech released EntraPass v.8.20, which provides customers with some improved functionality, including:

  • Improved search capabilities and other efficient upgrades to deliver remote and real-time access.
  • This update also opens the EntraPass software to macOS users
  • Includes an ‘email’ field in the CSV report exports, which will allow a manager to easily choose a set of accounts/owners and export email addresses, along with additional account stats.
  • The ability to view exacqVision video in hattrix, with seamless connection, easier configuration, and no port forwarding. By enabling this feature within the server, the need for IT involvement is eliminated and customers will be able to connect their exacqVision NVR to the hattrix system.
    • hattrix is Kantech’s cloud-based access control solution. Through hattrix, all data processing and storage takes place off site rather than residing in a server located in your building.


The EntraPass suite offers users two ways to remotely manage their access control system: EntraPass Web and EntraPass Go.  Each platform has its benefits, let’s take a look at both:

EntraPass Web

The EntraPass Web platform provides users real-time remote access to manage their Kantech access control system and reports from their laptop or desktop computer.  Through the use of EntraPass Web, system users can perform a variety of tasks including:

  • Lock and unlock doors
  • Manage cards
  • Set up and modify schedules
  • Request reports
  • View live video (with exacqVision integration)
  • Monitor events, and much more

The EntraPass Web app can be downloaded from the Kantech website through your PC’s web browser.

EntraPass Go

For the user who is rarely at their desk, EntraPass Go allows you to remotely use your access control system through your mobile device or tablet.  This mobile app provides you with the ability to:

  • Manage and create cards
  • Lock/unlock doors
  • View live video (with exacqVision integration)
  • Arm/Disarm intrusion partitions (with DSC integration)
  • Request reports and more

The EntraPass Go can be downloaded to your mobile device or tablet via the App Store and Google Play.
