Red Hawk Using IQ To Double Safety Entrance® Life Span

Orange County,  California – Doug Bentley of Red Hawk Fire & Security had a vision and understood the value of extending the useful life and increased functionality of the Safety Entrances® they service for their clients. Doug worked with Isotec’s Tim Carrillo tcarrillo@isotecinc.com on a plan for multiple interlocking door electronic upgrades throughout Red Hawk’s California market. Red Hawk’s customers required a proven standardized upgrade configuration that was scalable, rapidly installed, reliable and easily serviced, enter IQ.

IQ’s advanced technologies increase the functionality and product life of existing Isotec Safety Entrances® with enhanced features and capabilities that insure 100% objective safety & security compliance.

IQ can extend the life of an Isotec Safety Entrance® and even those of Novacomm’s Mark III & IV vestibules. Novacomm failed as a company in 2011, so Isotec also engineered IQ to replace the outdated electronics found in their Mark III & IV vestibules.

Nick Laskovski is Making Things Happen

Nick Laskovski is Making Things Happen

Nine months ago Diebold’s Nick Laskovski made his way to our Westminster HQ to learn about Safety Entrances®. So far this year, Nick leads all of Diebold in sales of our Safety Entrances®. Diebold has about 16,000 employees. Sounds like Rookie of Year accolades are in order.

We understand the folks at Diebold may be surprised by Nick’s “out of the blocks” success, but not us. We know a little something about outlier like Nick, because we’ve been labeled with the moniker a few times. They’re a myth. Nick earned his success through action. He took the initiative and invested his time to learn our product. He then listened to his client’s needs, their concerns and then delivered on his promises. A tried & true formula for sustainable success.

Nick’s successes aren’t magic. He makes things happen through well planned action. We view Nick as an example of positive axioms such as luck favoring the prepared, or the smarter you work the luckier you get. We can all learn from sales professionals like Nick. That’s why we’re touting his success. Heck of a job by someone we didn’t know a year ago.

This is a photo of Nicks latest order going through Factory Acceptance Testing. His client required two Synergy Touchscreen operator consoles for their two lane Safety Entrance®, which allows command & control from multiple points. You can see them wired up on the right.

Nick’s Safety Entrance® will be shipped out after it’s approved for deployment.

For Customers Who Have Everything, and Bring It With Them!

We get it. Some folks travel light, and some, not so much. For those of you who serve patrons or customers that like to, or need to, carry a lot of stuff or packages, the Atlas Pivot Table is as aesthetic as it is strong. Watch the video to see the Corian table’s surface and stainless steel, rod construction support more than 50lbs, yet lift out of the way with your pinkie finger. Yep, 50lbs is a lot of weight; but your customers will thankful you made the choice.

Smart Doors

Smart Doors

IMG_3391

Do you consider doors that do what you want, when you want, to be smart? How about a door system that reacts before you do? Imagine doors that are disciplined enough to protect you from harm or respond to your request in an emergency. How does this magic happen?

Smart doors are the result of aligning a series of arrayed sensors and components in constant communication with a computer know as a Programmable Logic Controller or PLC. PLCs play significant roles in our daily lives. They control stop lights, air conditioning (AKA HVAC), nuclear reactors, complex automated factories, and yes, for decades, our interlocking door systems.

PLCs don’t give operating instructions randomly. They are hard wired and pre-programmed with your operating instructions. They’ll transmit your instructions when you want and where, 24/7, every day. BTW, though done serially all this happens in the bat of an eye. We call this the “scenario of operation”.

A simple scenario of operation is “lock door A if door B is unlocked and remains unlocked”. That is a simple but fundamental act for an interlocking door system. Without that logic programmed in, both doors would be open and effectually lose “interlock’ functionality.

Doors can be programmed to work differently based on a multitude of requirements to accommodate a client’s need, and local codes. With the appropriate technologies in place, any operational requirement imaginable can be programmed into a PLC that will make the doors do what you want they and when.

Smart doors can now be controlled. Smart doors can be controlled and monitored from pretty much anywhere via web or cellular connectivity with smart phones, tablets, or dedicated wireless remotes.

Doors exist for a reason, what are yours? Do you need to protect or secure your facility, courthouse, airport, or hospital, but unsure how best to instruct and control your doors? Give us a call or send us a message. We can help.
