Richmond's The Locks
Encompassing six acres of Richmond’s downtown waterfront, The Locks is an exclusive enclave of residential and commercial spaces along the historic Haxall and Kanawha Canals, with the James River nearby. The Locks management wanted to replace their existing telephone entry units and add card access control, all under the command of a single software package. Keri's Entraguard and NXT access control hardware combined with Doors.NET software allowed them to do just that.

Keri's TCP/IP-based NXT Controllers are available in two versions -
standard Keri firmware and Mercury Powered NXT Firmware. The standard Keri version provides all the functionality needed to perform most access control functions and more. Using the Mercury Powered version brings a much greater level of sophistication - the same feature set available in the hardware made by our technology partner, Mercury Security Corporation. In addition to this larger feature set, Mercury Powered NXT allows In and Out readers to occupy the same reader port (when using NXT Readers), thus doubling controller reader capacity. It also provides sophisticated I/O linking, anti-passback and occupancy (just to name a few), and allows connection to Assa Abloy and Allegion wireless and IP-enabled locks. When specifying NXT hardware for your next project, make sure you understand which version you'll need, and give us a call if you have any questions.
For all of you installers and techies, did you know that Keri recently launched our Knowledge Base, and that it is constantly being expanded? This resource will help you see how similar installation challenges you may be facing were solved by other Keri dealers or by our tech support group. It is well organized and has a wealth of information, so we suggest you take a look at it. We also have a number of training videos available on our YouTube Channel that will walk you through the main areas of both hardware setup and software configuration. Future issues of the Keri Newsletter will focus on more specific topics, but we thought we'd start you off with these broad tools since they cover a variety of popular items.
Is Your Security System Secure?
If you are still running on Windows XP it's not. Almost 15% of PCs still run XP and Microsoft stopped providing security updates almost a year ago. If you are still using Doors32 to manage your PXL-500 systems, the last Windows version that it was 100% compatible with was XP. Keri strongly recommends upgrading your software to Doors.NET which is fully compliant with all Microsoft Operating systems since XP and can take advantage of all Microsoft's support for it's newer operating systems. Don't leave a gaping hole in your security systms that hackers can exploit to enter your network. Upgrade to Doors.NET.
You'll extend the life of your access control system and you'll get a bunch of really nice features, including Emergency Lockdown.
This link will explain why upgrading is important for you.
