Looking of a door access system

Hello all,

I have a project that requires a free standing single door card access system. My one choice is the IEI ProxPad Plus however it has some shortfalls and will not do all desired.

Here is what I am looking for and was wondering if there is a mfg or model that can do it all.

Single Door System maybe expandable but not required.

Program and Add/Delete cards thru keypad without the use of a PC

Can connect PC if desired

100 plus cards capacity

Time schedule to unlock door on flexible schedule M-F 8-5

New DST schedule or flexible

Remote mount reader if desired

Anyone know what system may meet the above requirements???

TIA

Les

Sorry, but at this point there is not budget. This if for a customer so I need to work on a price after I find the equipment. I would think that for a single door stand alone the system would be less than $400. Then I need the strike, power supply, wiring, labor, etc., etc.

Any suggestions????

400 bucks??! You can't even buy a decent manual door knob for that :-)

Rosslare can do what you want- but as Crash says- $400 bucks is a pipe dream!

I looked at their web site but could not get into the download of manuals with out a passcode. Need to get one on Monday.

Do you know what they have for the new DST issue???

And do the units have a flexible auto unlock for a time schedule?? This is the one issue that really suppressed me with the IEI ProxPad Plus. It will do a auto unlock but only from 9-5!!! How dumb is that.

Thanks for the info.

I use the IEI systems to do auto unlock on a couple of buildings. Never noticed a restriction on the times. Why not download their s/w and play with it.

The typical "access control" door costs $2500.00. You might be better off looking at a panel like the DSC PC 4020 with a PC4820. You could get all that you say you want for in the $ ball park you mention.

Don't forget fire alarm interupt.

9-5 is just the default setting. Use the software to change it. It won't do the new DST, though.

Didn't IEI make a lockset with push buttons, 30 something users and you could plug your puter into it and pull out history? I'd put in several as a sub several years ago,,,cant remember if they were IEI or not...think they were. They cost abt 500 bucks.

You had to be a bit of a locksmith though.

Nice. I think I'll add them to our online stores. We've done well with Napco's Alarm Lock Systems brand. I get orders for them every couple of weeks but I'd like to have a few more lines.

They're nice. I wanted to put one on my house, but they're a little expensive just for kewl factor at home. Fairly easy to install IF you're installed door locks before otherwise...hmmm.

One common issue is understanding how to measure backset so they order the right piece. The mechanicals of installing a cylindrical lock are pretty straight forward. Very few people order locks for use with an exit bar though we do get those occasionally. Government and military facilities occasionally ask for keyless entry systems. We also get interest from airports but most of the time they take the information and hire a local installer.

Thanks to those that have replied. I now have some new info and parameters to work with.

It seems that the IEI ProxPad Plus can change the 9-5 default auto-unlock function thru the software only. Thru the keypad is not an option for this function.

However because of some new parameters being placed on this project by the customer I may have to go to a full Access Control system such as the PXL500 from Keri System.

Again thanks for all the input.

Have a good day.

I have never installed a Keri System, I have only worked on a few. The ones I worked on looked like low end gear (all plastic control housings) and had lots of problems. I don't know if the problems were installer realted or not (there were lots of com problems between computer and panels and outright panel failures). If you use Keri what are the pluses you've found compared to other manufacturers access control gear? Here are some I am familiar with (trained on most) if you can find a like fit and compare it to any of these: Software House (iSTAR Pro) AMAG (MDU and 2100) Infographic Systems (GE) Sapphire Pro (ACU2) Continental Instruments Access 3000 (Super 2) Northern Computers - Honeywell (N 1000 II & NStar) Kantech (KT-200) CEM (All) Bosch (Access Easy) Brivo (3400 & 5000) KeySacn (All Panels) Card Key (all - up to CK 720)

Keri doesn't seem to have a big footprint in this area. I never get to see the gear before someone else puts thir paws on it, so I have never had a fair look at it.

Roland,

I have installed the PXL500 system from Keri Systems. Actually have 4 units in 4 different towns all connected and controlled from one location. Not sure what you mean about "low end gear (all plastic control housings)". Unless you are talking about some other model that I am not aware about.

The reasons I chose the PXL500 when I did was for a number of reasons. The main reason was I did not have to become an 'authorized dealer' with a required training course and a minimum purchase. Second the system could do what the customer wanted and for a good price when compared with others. Another reason was the software (Doors) was a free download from there website. And last the tech support was very helpful before I purchased as well as after the system was installed. All very important!!!

The install was easy but did have some issue during the network setup that was mostly due to my ignorance with networks. Once I got the jist of the procedure all went well and when I had a snag the tech guys got my fat out of the fryer.

Except for a couple of "out of my control" issues the systems have been working fine for over 2 years now.

With this new project it seems that the free standing system may not happen and I will be spec'ing the PXL500. The price is only going to be about $200 more. And it will do everything the customer wants it to do and more.

Hope this helps with your knowledge base.

Have a good day.

Les
