New system reduces installation costs by up to 40 percent while providing
the redundancy and reliability required for critical security
TORONTO, March 26 /CNW/ - Active Control Technology Inc. (TSX-V:ACT)
today introduced QuikMesh(TM), a breakthrough in wireless data communications
for the $1 billion security industry that reduces labour and material
installation costs by up to 40 percent.
The new system provides the integrity, reliability and redundancy
required for commercial security that previously could be fulfilled only with
QuikMesh wirelessly links security peripheral devices such as card
readers, biometric readers and parking gates with central computer panels that
manage security systems. Ideal applications include interior environments such
as office buildings and warehouses, and exterior high security complexes.
Utilizing "mesh" network technology with multiple wireless node modules,
QuikMesh remains operational even if line-of-sight communication links are
blocked or disrupted. The system offers the following features and benefits:
plug-and-play capability, self-healing, highly-secure encryption,
compatibility with most original equipment manufacturer (OEM) access control
panels, and it is designed to meet global standards.
"QuikMesh has been designed with the guidance of our major OEM customers
who provide us with both product and volume visibility. It is the ideal
wireless solution for installations where added reliability and redundancy are
essential," said Steve Barrett, President and CEO of ACT. "Because there is no
need to install wires, the system also provides significant cost savings for
retrofits of older buildings as well as new installations, and offers our
customers a new competitive edge when bidding on projects."
QuikMesh is the first product to be introduced by ACT under its
ActiveMesh(TM) family of products for the security industry.
