Our longstanding and much loved Doors32 Software is now available only via download from Keri's web site or special order, but is still free of charge. It will continue to be available as long as customers ask for it and computers with compatible operating systems exist. Doors32 has served our customers and the industry well as installer-friendly and user-friendly access control software. With the advancements in Windows Operating System technology, Doors32 is only be compatible through Windows 7, and then only when run in XP Emulation Mode. Keri will not be providing any testing or support for running Doors32 on any later operating systems. Read more about the discontinuation.

The release of version brought PXL-500 support to our newer, more modern Doors.NET software, which has become the default software for use with Keri's PXL-500 family hardware for new shipments unless Doors32 is specifically requested. Doors.NET provides concurrent multiple operator and multiple site capability, integrated video and a host of other sophisticated features that bring more power to your PXL customer offerings.
