Tyco Kantech New Combo Door Controller Reviewed

By Brian Rhodes, Published Feb 18, 2014, 12:00am EST (Info+)

Installing enterprise access control is expensive for just one door and creates a challenge in specifying small or stand alone systems.

While new controllers are rare, Kantech has released a combo door controller to bridge the hardware gap for standalone deployments. Is this a smart move that will allow Kantech to keep customers away from the likes of Lenel, Honeywell, and Software House? We examine the controller and its impact in the note below.
