“The ability to custom tailor the system to our needs was a very important factor in our decision to implement the KeyWatcher system,” said Simons. “The reports are beneficial from the security standpoint but, overall, the KeyWatcher system has enhanced our safety and security program.”

E-Plex Flexible Lockdown Options Boost Campus Security
With emergency response plans being a top priority for many, Kaba Access Control has incorporated multiple lockdown options in its E-Plex® Wireless Access Control System. From the Dashboard, users can centrally manage lock commands such as remote unlock, passage, and emergency lockdown. The system’s lockdown choices suit virtually any site and include global, door group, or single door lockdown. In addition, lockdown can be executed right at a door, providing instantaneous and convenient security.
According to Rick Shuford, CRL and Kaba’s product trainer, “We designed the E-Plex Wireless System with emergency commands to help organizations deal with readiness and response in the event of a threat or crisis. Kaba’s System Lockdown provides security directors, facility managers, and staff the flexibility to address immediate needs when they occur on campus.”
In addition, the E-Plex Wireless System requires no wires, conduit runs, access panels, or trenching/drilling. Entire properties, including remote buildings, can be joined to the E-Plex Wireless System without installation hassles and extensive costs. The E-Plex Wireless System is supported exclusively through a Certified Dealer Network.

Detex CVR Exit Devices Provide Higher Level Of Security
Detex Corporation has introduced a new concealed vertical rod exit device that ensures latching on closing – a significant advance that evolved with the input of facility managers and security personnel.
“Architects and designers have always preferred that rods and latches be hidden, but maintenance people said the mechanism was a challenge,” said Ken Kuehler, national accounts manager for Detex Corporation. “Security could be compromised during downtime, and that was happening too often.”
Generally, deadlocking latches must be held retracted to allow the door to close and re-latch. While the door is open, some devices use only one step to hold back the latch – not enough to activate the latch hold-back. But now all Detex CVR devices use a unique six-step latch hold-back method that keeps the latch retracted while the door is open, regardless of whether the pushpad is pressed lightly or hard. The latch will always engage when the door closes, and performance is much more reliable.
Detex Concealed Vertical Rod panic and fire exit hardware is made for heavy use applications, but is also designed to look good on the job. Enhancing the architectural aesthetics of any decor, it fits a variety of doors, including narrow stile aluminum or hollow metal doors without mullions, wooden double doors, and wide stile aluminum doors without a mullion.
“Our new CVR hardware is a design innovation that offers major advantages in operational security and ease of maintenance,” said Kuehler.

CyberLock Helps Lower Insurance Premiums
Videx CyberLock access control products help high-risk businesses lower their insurance premiums with the system's ability to track and control access throughout a facility.
Public facilities like churches, schools, and hospitals are more likely to face loss or property damage, due to the high volume of people coming and going. Additionally, key control is a big issue and it can be difficult to secure all areas of a facility. Insurance companies consider public facilities high-risk and it is reflected in increased premiums. Installing an access control system like CyberLock to reduce the risk of theft and damages can reduce insurance premiums.
