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!

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.

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.

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.
