First off, the keypad’s easy adaptability and flexibility makes the Electrone 735 the perfect choice to complement a huge range of management software. This safe, easy, and practically unbreakable keypad does everything you would want a keypad to do. Here’s an overview of the 735’s outstanding benefits:

Rugged
The 735 range of keypads are designed for use in sensitive environments where the ability to keep the keyboard clean is of paramount importance. The keypad can withstand 1 million keystrokes and still ensure entries are inputted correctly. It comes with a plastic and rubber enclosure, but a metal enclosure version is also available. But the keypads are more than just rugged. The 735 range of keypads can be built with a variety of security and compatibility options based on Electrone America’s client specifications.

Secure
Easy to integrate into your current software applications, the keypads eliminate the need to say confidential information out loud, offering the option to manually type into the keypad for verification instead. A great use of this programmable keypad is public service offices including schools, banks, hospitals, and government agencies that need to protect their customers’ personal information, such as birth date, social security number and credit card information.

Multitasking
The Electrone 735 range of keypads are the perfect fit for gym and health club management software— the keypad’s flexibility make it the ideal complement for a range of software applications. If you need to track customers attendance or usage, the keypads can integrate with external devices—RFID readers, finger print readers, bar code readers and magnetic card readers—that accommodate secure identification.

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.

Bar coding the future

The future is here—and it’s bar coded.

A 2010 study conducted by researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston found that a system that checks medications and doses using bar codes significantly cuts down on hospital drug errors. “We had the opportunity to design and implement a bar code-scanning system to ensure that every patient in the hospital gets the right medication at the right dose at the right time,” said lead researcher Dr. Eric G. Poon, the hospital’s director of clinical informatics.

“After implementing that new system, we found dramatic reductions in errors made during the process of administering medications,” he added. Using this system may prevent as many as 90,000 serious errors each year. T

At Electrone, we put safety first and foremost. That’s why Specimen Labels for healthcare facilities, with the use of Electrone’s Zebra Printers, can be printed at the exact point of collection with a bar coded label for a patient’s chart. These printers ultimately reduce the risk of entering incorrect information on patients. Additionally, by using the QL Plus series printers, pharmacy labels can be made that scan prescribed medicine and contain patient information. Avoid careless but critical mistakes by investing in hardware which can eliminate user error.
