Kantech's greatest strength is that Tyco also produces the other integration pieces such as intrusion (DSC) and video (Exacq, which is open from a camera standpoint). This integration does not cost anything extra, there are no extra licensing fees or SsA's that need to be maintained to ensure they work together. So many times we go to sites of customers where "integrations" between manufacturers are broken and can not be repaired because the companies have gone another direction. The Total cost of ownership for our fully integrated system is much lower than any others and guaranteed to work.

My comment above is not for promotion but awareness for those who are not familiar with Kantech products, specifically their Entrapass Go app.

This post needs to be updated/refreshed.

The Kantech product line, particularly the Hattrix hosting solution, is more powerful that portrayed in this review. The platform is also a powerful solution for mid-sized business with multiple locations including property management, franchises etc..... A product does not have to be "enterprise priced" to provide enterprises with quality solutions.

Also, one of the missing elements in this and other reviews is "end user satisfaction." I would be interested in seeing that added to these reports.
