Indiegogo supports the Access Control POE Internet Keypad

Most things in life can not be measured monetarily. I say that as prelude to our report on our Indiegogo campaign in which we wracked in a mere $150. But what we gained from our campaign is actually priceless. It got our energy moving forward, crystalized our belief in the project, and enlarged our circle of enthusiasts. The campaign ended on June 25, but our plans to carry on with our visions goes full steam ahead.

Indiegogo offered us a chance to come together as a team and tell our story.

We loved the whole process of our campaign—and we are inspired to make our next pitch more compelling. Stay tuned for more keypad breakthroughs. Thanks for believing in us!

What happens in the keypad stays in the keypad

Identity theft is not just paranoid thinking. According to Justice Department, in about 8.6 million households at least one person 12 or older experienced some kind of identity theft in 2010. That same year, the Justice department estimates, identity theft cost households a total of $13.3 billion in 2010 in direct financial losses.

Of course, large corporations are victims of identity theft too. Electrone’s 720 numeric keypad can help corporations that handle and are responsible for private information protect personal data from being stolen and used in identity theft schemes. Plus, an institution’s implementation of up-to-date technology for better data security stands to not only improve relations with existing customers, clients, and employees, but can also help forge new relations based on the identity theft protection offered by its technological infrastructure.

Two common ways that identity theft criminals acquire peoples’ personal data are by simply listening and watching. To help prevent identity theft, institutions should therefore implement technology — Electrone numeric keypads do the trick—that minimize how often its customers, clients, and employees have to say their private information out loud, and how often these individuals have to enter their private information into exposed devices.

Electrone 720 Series Numeric Keypads are currently used by numerous institutions for precisely that reason—individuals do not have to say their social security numbers to get service or treatment. Instead, they can key in their information for automatic identification. The institutions using Electrone keypads for this application, which include medical centers; banks; and driver’s license offices, are making major strides toward protecting individuals from identity theft.

With the proper software, data entered into a 720 Series Numeric Keypad can be 100 percent encrypted, which prevents the data from being deciphered by unauthorized programs. Electrone numeric keypads can also be programmed so that their LCD screens show asterisks instead of actual digits. Furthermore, 720 Series Numeric Keypads can be customized to feature privacy shields that prevent anyone from seeing the numbers entered by users. Institutions can even choose from different interface options, such as Serial; USB; TCP/IP; and PoE, the latter two of which gives the keypads secure Ethernet connectivity.

Electrone keypads are customized to meet your businesses specific needs, so projects are handled efficiently and companies run smoothly. Whatever your requirements, the Electrone 720 series Numeric Keypad will help protect your client’s private information and strengthen your reputation as a trusted resource.

Combat Terror with Cutting-edge Technology

The recent Boston Marathon bombings heightened awareness of the need for extra security measures. How bombproof are your security strategies? Is your security camera surveillance cutting edge? If you are at all in doubt, it may well be worth your while to check out Electrone’s EAL System 200 Security Camera Control Console.

The EAL System 200 is a powerful tool for combating terror. It’s equipped to remotely control a large number of cameras over a network as well as consolidate the operations necessary to manage cameras for security applications. The standard model EAL System 200 has a triple-axis joystick that enables security agents to easily manipulate high-tech digital security cameras in their effort to identify potential terrorists. This model also features a 2-port USB hub for seamless integration with other devices pivotal to operating an effective counterterrorism security camera system.

The EAL System 200 comes with a variety of customizable options designed to make it a perfect complement to your surveillance infrastructure. It can be supplied as a “mouse-stick” for security software that allows camera control using a mouse, thus allowing security agents much more flexibility in operating this type of software for counter-terrorist security applications. The unit can also be customized to feature up to 70 programmable buttons and/or a graphic LCD display with 4 soft keys, both of which features make light of navigating even the largest of camera networks. Plus, the

programmable keys dramatically streamline monitoring tasks and are a valuable asset during terror alerts when security agents are rushing to complete multiple tasks. The LCD display feature allows specific commands to be issued directly to the security agent operating the console—a communication capability that is invaluable to a counterterrorism security camera network.

Given the importance of security measures in almost any public sphere, you won’t regret having the best technological support at your fingertips. Electrone’s development expertise in this specialized sector has created a security camera control device believed to be unique in the marketplace.

A Radical New Keypad in Development

Stuart Thorn’s belief in design that challenges accepted standards is more than a belief—it’s what his company practices on a daily basis. First, Mr. Thorn developed the 735 keypad range, indispensable in all kinds of environments. One of the most important benefits to the keypad is that it can protect customers’ personal information, such as birth date, social security number and credit card information.


Secondly, the keypad provides vital information to management software, making it an especially good fit for health clubs. If you need to track customers attendance or usage, the keypads can integrate with external devices—RFID readers, , bar code readers  magnetic card readers, in fact most devices that communicate via RS232, Serial—that accommodate secure identification. Additional uses Mr. Thorn has verified include a cashless solution that helps organizations eliminate cash handling or credit card fees, syncs up with the keypad seamlessly. All in all, the 735 keypad has no comparison in terms of ease and flexibility.


But never one to rest on his laurels, Mr. Thorn is pushing their surface mount keypad breakthrough further to create an open keypad with a display that can be accessed over the worldwide web. With the support of a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo, Mr. Thorn is currently deep in the developmental stage of a prototype keypad that offers radical user-friendliness for an array of tasks. Here are some of the most important features:


  • The POE is a single cable connection that enables communication to any network or internet.
  • Superior access control that communicates to host application back to user.
  • Machine minding that lets managers monitor activity in remote locations.
  • Delivers web-based services such as order processing and time management.


Unlike any other keypad, Mr. Thorn’s new prototype has an incredible array of features designed to streamline workflow and simplify management. Stay tuned for more updates as the release date of the POE Internet Keypad draws near.
