At the request of our customers, Techway has designed and produced a wireless, portable access system card reader that is self contained, including a rechargeable power supply, wireless communications to a simple base unit, and connectivity to a Honeywell PW5000/PW6000 access control system. Both the DR series legacy card reader and HID card readers are available on this unit, making it versatile by way of compatability with HID and Honeywell Quadrakeys.
Now that need has been filled for a portable card reader for mustering applications, handheld gate readers brought to the vehicle, and readers for special access needs such as the handicapped at busy entrances. Contact us for more information and pricing.
See your Techway salesman for details on the Honeywell Star-1 Rebate program. Now is the perfect time to upgrade your older hardware to the latest PW 6000 platform and get rebates toward future Honeywell purchases!
The BA-440 DualBeam Barcode Reader represents the most compact, full featured barcode reader for Vehicle Access Control and AVI (Automatic Vehicle Identification) systems. Combining advanced laser technology with the proven DualBeam design pioneered by Barcode Automation, the BA-440 Barcode Reader offers the best performance, reliability, and cost effectiveness available.
The primary purpose of the BA-440 DualBeam Barcode Reader is to read barcode decals on vehicles. Our standard decals will be reliably read at speeds up to 25 mph and distances up to 6 feet from the reader. Decal data is transmitted via RS232 serial port, USB connection (compatible with a computer) and a standard 26 bit Wiegand port (compatible with other access control equipment).
The BA-440 DualBeam Barcode Reader is a class II laser device, making it safe for installations at roads and entrances. The laser cannot cause eye damage unless viewed directly for an extended period of time. Featuring include modular construction, quick disconnects, and built-in tools for fast and easy servicing, diagnostics are easily accessed using a laptop with either a RS232 serial port or USB port. Housed in a durable aluminum enclosure, the BA-440 DualBeam Barcode Reader operates around the clock easing the workload of gatekeepers and security personnel. The only regular maintenance requirement is to clean the optics and interior twice per year.

For the Trenton Housing Authority, MAXPRO VMS is a critical component to a new, centralized system that manages security for nine housing properties spread across the city. The organization uses a wireless network to transmit CCTV, access and other data to a command and control center, where the data is displayed through a MAXPRO VMS interface. The solution also allows THA operators to integrate all existing and future camera systems in a single display. Additionally, multiple operators can share incidents with each other using a simple drag-and-drop functionality. This approach increases operator productivity and reduces investigation time.
“Crime has been cut down, unauthorized use of certain areas has gone away, the opportunity for illegal activity has been greatly reduced, the community feels safer, and from a management standpoint, it’s easy,” said Michael Vertolli, CEO of ComTec Systems, which designed the THA’s overall security solution.
Meanwhile, at DSU, the technology fits into the school’s overarching goal of streamlining security operations by allowing operators to manage nearly 20 digital video recorders from a single location. Operators create customized views that include feeds from cameras at multiple locations to better protect the 3,500 students who attend the school each year. Additionally, DSU has integrated the system with Honeywell’s Pro-Watch® security management platform to provide campus police a single interface that automatically ties access control events with relevant video.
“In general, MAXPRO VMS is a lot simpler to use than anything we’ve tried before,” said James Overton, DSU’s chief of police. “The integration makes all processes easier since we’re not jumping from software system to software system.”
Likewise, about 12 miles away from DSU, MAXPRO VMS will combine with Pro-Watch to centralize video feeds and intrusion detection technology at Smyrna High School, where the Smyrna School District is currently adding 200,000 sq. ft. to the existing 280,000 sq. ft.-campus. The system, which will be installed by integrator Advantech, will comprise a series of Honeywell’s Fusion and Rapid Eye™ digital video recorders, as well as the company’s VISTA intrusion panels.
“The security industry as a whole is moving towards a unified approach to video, access control and intrusion using a single piece of software,” said Eric Schaeffer, Advantech president. “MAXPRO VMS is taking us in that direction.”
