DSI Custom

Most barrier optical turnstile projects have a custom element. Do you need extra heavy duty service? Do you need to match the lobby decor? Are you working with a tight space? If you have a tailgating problem, it might make sense to have a conversation. No pressure, no cost.

This video shows how a turnstile can be expected to operate:

Southwest Microwave Support Resources Coming to Chicago

If you missed outdoor intrusion expert Tim Claus of Southwest Microwave  in March, please call to see if we can get you on the schedule for April.

Southwest Microwave’s analog microwave sensors have been the gold standard for over 40 years. We regularly see sensors – even complicated deployments using reflectors – installed back in the 1980’s still in operation.

Why, with such outstanding long-term  performance, would you ever consider upgrading to digital microwave? Tim is prepared to survey your site to see if it might make sense.

As the latest additions to Southwest Microwave’s family of intelligent perimeter security solutions, INTREPID™ Micropoint™ Single Platform Detection Systems feature field-proven detection technologies, made even smarter with single-platform networking convenience. This cable installation training video will help your installation go smoothly!

Vingtor Stentofon at ISC West

Vingtor-Stentofon is a powerhouse in the field of two way communications and paging for high-rise buildings, hospitals, schools, correctional facilities, and industry. If you’re going to attend the ISC show next month, please look us up.

70 years of innovation

Turbine IP communication stations with exceptional audio quality and extreme durability can be configured as an inexpensive but powerful PULSE system with over 64 stations. If you already have a SIP phone system, consider adding a Turbine: their SIP compatibility and advanced security features make them a great choice for outdoor IP phone locations.

Stentofon’s powerful AlphaCom ensures the fastest, most reliable, and most effective  communications during critical situations. Our technology partners have integrated Stentofon into their access and video platforms to facilitate a coordinated security and life safety response.

Integration Partners

The new year means new training dates! Factory training in Kansas City has transitioned back to a three day class that focuses strictly on AlphaCom.

With the enhanced features and functionalities of Pulse, the 2018 one day regional training sessions are Pulse only.  Follow this link for more information:

New Stentofon Master Station Supports Video

Stentofon’s new ITSV-1 is a video master station with a Stentofon image for PULSE, AlphaCom, and SIP. It has 6 user accounts, so it may be used as a desk IP phone as well as a Stentofon intercom.

Stentofon ITSV-1

The ITSV-1 is licensed as a standard station with AlphaCom and larger PULSE systems. There is no station license needed for  PULSE systems with 16 or fewer stations.

Certifying Security Professionals – ASIS International

Thank you for your guidance, support, and comradeship over the past 6 years. My term as Regional Vice President for Region 2C (covering Northern and Central Illinois and Northern and Central Indiana) is over effective December 31, 2017. I look forward to staying in contact with you and fellow members across the globe.

I will continue to serve on the ASIS International Awards Committee, and encourage you to join and volunteer. To join; renew your membership; or pursue the  PSP, CPP, or PCI certification, please follow one of the links below.

Area of Rescue or Area of Refuge – AOR by Vingtor Stentofon

For years, Zenitel’s Vingtor-Stentofon has provided area of rescue/area of refuge systems for large high rise buildings and parking garages. Yet sometimes we may not be the first system that engineers think of for small AOR systems.

Stentofon’s AlphaCom configured for AOR is modular; scales to cover very large facilities; and is geared to integrate with other systems (access control, building automation, or video). AlphaCom provides HD audio with active noise cancellation; echo cancellation; and automatic volume control, so is ideal for for noisy parking garages and stairwells with concrete walls. When used with robust IP66 and IK-10 rated Turbine stations that operate in temperature extremes, an AlphaCom will provide decades of outstanding audio performance. While AlphaCom may seem expensive when compared to small stand alone single purpose systems, the cost of ownership over decades of use makes it an exceptional value.

Stentofon’s new PULSE IP addresses mid-sized AOR (64 or fewer stations) applications. This all IP solution also provides HD audio with active noise cancellation; echo cancellation; and automatic volume control, and uses the same robust IP66 and IK-10 rated Turbine IP stations as AlphaCom. Each station now may store custom messages that can be activated via scripting, thus meeting local building code messaging requirements. There is no dedicated server, and the first 16 PULSE licenses are included. The cost for a small system is less than for AlphaCom, so is competitive when compared to competitors’ low performance AOR systems.

If your building needs a long lasting AOR system, please consider Vingtor Stentofon’s PULSE.

Excellence in Protection and Critical Communications

Denning Electronics has been solving tough critical communications, intrusion detection, IP CCTV, access control, and door (including ballistic, blast, and acoustic barrier) challenges for the past 34 years.   If you are a protection system manufacturer in need of professional representation or if you are a security system user, integrator, architect or engineer in the Midwest with a problem to solve, please contact us. We have a network of engineers, technicians, manufacturers, peers, distributors, and dealers that will succeed where others have failed.

Security through Analytics – ISS

We work with companies and institutions that need to watch-over and protect people using their facilities – including parking lots and public areas. Man of their greatest challenges come when they are short-staffed.

 Standard CCTV systems are forensic, so are likely incapable of telling you when something could happen. Are there certain cars casing or speeding through your property?

Has someone been loitering? Is a larger than normal crowd forming where they shouldn’t? Has someone parked in a dangerous area? Is a banned individual on your property? Or – for industrial and construction sites – is your site vulnerable because visitors and employees are neglecting to wear their hard hats?

 ISS has very powerful native SecurOS analytics, available exclusively through Anixter dealers. For more information please  call or e-mail us.

Do you need more from your video system? Does mere recording have you sifting through hundreds of hours of video to find an incident?

Maybe we should meet. No sales pitches or obligations; we might be able to help relieve some pain points and contribute to your success.
