I have seen a reader that appears to be a square like plate with a circle of segments going around. The user inputs the code in this format. There are no numbers displayed. Do you know what type of device it would be ... any brands/models in question?

The lock was at a bank in 2008. I didn't take a photograph because I didn't think that I would need one, and the staff may not have been comfortable with such action. It is not the one above. The face plate was white and the segments were keys that would be entered to form a code.

Shall we also guess which Bank it was ?

 

I'm going with Barclay's, due to branch closures it was briefly a trendy wine bar which then closed & is currently a Cafe Nero,

 

The cashier who served you was called Wendy you paid in cheque for the value of £278.14 which was an unexpected tax refund, it was a Thursday & the weather was overcast you took your golf umbrella but it did not rain....

 

Why on earth do you want to play guessing games 8yrs after the event ?

could all TSI members pop into their local branch on the off chance they have the same reader to solve the 8yr mystery ?

I am curious to know what it is because it is rare to see this sort of technology used in public.

Uninterestingly I know the type you mean I have seen them in other Halifax branches.

The ones I have seen in the branches years ago have since been replaced for Prox.

 

It's 12 buttons in a circle, square about as wide as a 9500 keypad and I assumed you remember the number using positions on a clock?

 

Absolutely no idea on make model etc.

Hi, I don't know who makes the 9500 keypad. I think the code may be remembered numerically, and then the user remembers it sub-consciously or by muscle memory. The segment spacing looked too tight to be representative of a clock face.

I think I can guess who it was - the same people who made the one I took out of an old BaE systems place a few years back I suspect.

 

I posted about it at the time, and was amazed to find the company apparently still trading with a very 1990s looking website.

Their products also seemed to be rebadged by Chubb at one time, and the website had the same ones I remember from banks

back then including the 5 digit ones that were like 5 typewriter keys in a row, no numbers, in a folded metal case to hide your finger movements.

As I say I'm going to guess.

 

So, I'm going to start off by guessing 'Surrey Digital Lock Systems (1978) Ltd.'

 

Quizmaster, am I right or wrong.
