Backplane Systems Technology announces the release of STORM AXS StrikeMaster access control products from Keymat Technology.
Providing solutions for security applications in a weather- and vandal-resistant package, STORM AXS access control products can be quickly and easily installed to prevent unauthorised access to schools, offices, private buildings or restricted areas.
The STORM AXS StrikeMaster access control keypads are designed as self-contained systems that can withstand hard use and abuse in exposed, unsupervised and public locations. When authorised personnel enter a unique Personal Identification Number (PIN) into the StrikeMaster keypad, it triggers an electrically operated strike or lock, permitting access through a normally locked door or barrier.
The keypad can also be used to give a discrete warning of attack or kidnap. If any programmed PIN code is pre-fixed by two special digits a silent warning is transmitted without alerting the attacker, as the door or barrier appears to operate normally. An electronic sensor in the StrikeMaster detects any attempt to remove or tamper with the keypad, and can also be connected to a magnetic switch attached to the door. If an intruder forces the door open without first entering the correct code, the sensor will trigger the keypad’s integrated alarm circuit.
Key features of STORM AXS StrikeMaster access control keypads:
- Up to 50 individual ‘Personal Identification Number’ codes can be programmed
- Codes can be programmed to open the door for a pre-set time, allowing just one person to enter
- Alternatively, can be programmed to hold the door in an unlocked condition until the code is re-entered
- Code can be changed or cancelled at any time to withdraw an individual's access to a secured area
