Another recent project was a retrofit for a keypad controlling the employee entrance for a department store down at the mall. Everything was there: a beat up useless old keypad, low voltage power supply and an electric locking device.
In this economy, some clients are pretty frugal. I wanted to provide an immediate solution at a reasonable cost to the customer without necessarily eliminating the possibilities of a future upgrade to a credential-based solution.
I supplied the Rosslare ACQ-44. The client loved the touch sensitive keypad, and when the economy recovers, I’ll suggest they transition to credentials for their door. Rosslare has been around for as long as I can recall, and they offer great value products at competitive prices.
