What is a Biometric Reader?

In short Biometric Reader is a device that measures and analyses “biological DATA”,

In Information technology and access control applications such devices will compare the data gathered, to the information stored in a data base,

If the data read by the device is contained in the data base then you have a “MATCH” and a series of responses to such match can be triggered depending to what such device has been designed for, for example time and attendance, access control or Point of sale applications among others.

Eagle Gate Openers are a great choice for any type of pad mount installation

How about we talk a little about our Eagle operators, in particular I would like to talk about the Eagle 100 Residential (16’/400Lbs) /200 Commercial (20’/1000Lbs) Swing Gate operators, these operators priced between $1,000 and $1,300 are a great choice for any type of pad mount installation.

What is an intercom system?

What is an intercom system?

An intercom is a stand-alone voice communications system for use within a building or small collection of buildings, functioning independently of the public telephone network. Intercoms can incorporate connections to public address loudspeaker systems, walkie talkies, telephones, and to other intercom systems. Some intercom systems incorporate control of devices such as signal lights and door latches.

Many schools and office buildings now use audio / video systems to identify visitors trying to gain access to a locked building, and can be interfaced with the building’s access control system.

Wireless intercoms

For installations where it is not desirable or possible to run wires to support an intercom system, wireless intercom systems are available...
