  3. Hi there all, my name is Red, for the purposes of this forum, not being clever, its my initials! I have been around the game for 32 years, makes me sound old... Started out as a YTS apprenticeship when it actually meant something, always was into electronics as a child, once used an automatic solenoid car window opener and made an electronic lock for my bedroom in 1984... C+G 236 pt 1.2.3, C+G 224 pt 1.2, C+G 185 pt 1.2.3. and many more. Came via Lander Alarms owned by the then RMC group, Modern alarms, Modern Security Systems, ADT, Secom, then pretty much 20 years on my own. High end is my game and has been so for many years, been blessed with clients and customers of an exceptionally high calibre, where money is never an object. Which has meant I have been able to design and implement some wild and wacky systems. Currently working the finance and money sector fortune 100 companies, commissioning, servicing and maintaining, Prowatch, Lenel, Casi, Avigilon to name but a few, and many more. Fully qualified in all aspects including but not limited to Prowatch cert, Lenel cert, Milestone cert, etc but can work on ANYTHING!!!!! I LOVE ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE AND SECURITY AND AUTOMATION. Peace.... RED

  13. Are you still using traditional proximity card and fingerprint for access control? My company has a new product may change the future of access control. You can own multiple identification technologies, and control the door from anywhere now. We make use of cloud service and smartphone, to let you spend less, but own more. You don't need to buy other devices, the only thing you need is a smartphone. Almost everybody has a smartphone now, so I think it's very potential. The picture shows how it works, are you guys interested in it?

  19. Seems in many area, UL is mandatory. As a manufacture, UL is super expensive. I think it's a high barrier for small brands to compete in North American market. Will you use any access control product that is without UL, if you know its performance is proven?

  22. Hi guys, I'm a engineer from an Chinese access control company. We are designed a mini access control DIY set that will be economic and practical. Now, most of small corporations would like to choose the all-in-one standalone access control system, which is a controller, reader all-in-one design, and the control module is placed outdoor. As a criminal with a little knowledge in engineering, he will know how to hack the control module easily. This is why all the professional controller and readers are separated design. To make an easy access control system that both easy to use and safe, we designed a new access control DIY set. Even though for safety, it's separated design, the installation is even easier than normal standalone system. Moreover, we developed an APP to let users control and manage the system easily. This design will lead the trend of future small access control systems. If you are interested in it, please leave comments here.
