Roughly 30 years ago, a novel idea took root among a small group of leading Access Control and Security professionals. The concept was to develop a product that affordably penetrated the highest yielding sector of the access market and which was easy to implement and use. Keri’s earliest product was targeted at the entry level of the marketplace, where electonic access was in it’s raw stages with hardware installers and locksmiths.
Being an offshoot of a major RFID manufacturer, the Indala Corporation, Keri’s first products were designed to “learn-enroll” cards. The idea was to create a controller and reader with a desire to eliminate the need for facility encoded credentials and the potential for duplicate cards . Utilizing the “learn-enroll” process, Keri could completely eliminate the chance that any duplicate card would ever be made or shipped. Credentials could simply be programmed sequentially and shipped in lots. Consequently, the issue of facility encoding was conquered. Now, that’s how a company turns lemons into lemonaide and was the beginning of a critical thinking process that has sustained Keri throughout the years. That was just the beginning.
