    I hadn't heard of that, but it's not a good thing. Regardless of maintenance, it shouldn't do that. I have access control systems that haven't seen a tech in years (knock on wood), with no problems. You shouldn't "have" to have regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly, though it is a good thing.

      I ran past this thread and I thought I would add in a few more access control systems.

It seems that regardless of the service agreement ADT had not been doing regular maintenance on the Win-Pak server. It got pretty ... interesting for them after two (2) years with out any scheduled maintenance. The biggest issue was a complete lock out. Whenever an employee swiped there was no telling which door would unlock. Although there was a one in eight chance of the correct door opening I still look at it as a lock out.
        What version of Winpak are you currently running? The biggest issue is usually db corruption when the system is not maintained. Winpak uses MSDE which has a 2 gig limitation which will cause problems if you do not archive old history.
        The problem that you refer to with random doors opening or a random lockout. Was the door in a timezone or shortly just left its TZ when this certain someone scanned their credential?

          WinPak 2.0, and it began at around two (2) hours before the scheduled time zone change.

            Are you running any command files?

              No, we do not even have a command file server.

                  How about IR Security Technologies. They have some interesting products and they are a HUGE company. I think they have wireless cylindrical locks that you can use any access control front end to run them.
                  Check out: SMS, Bright Blue, Schlage Express, etc....

                  Some of their stuff is a little goofy but they have some products that are creative.

                    Lenel

                    Hello everyone! I am from Vietnam and working in Security business.

                    No one have mentioned about Lenel system. They provide a total security solution, called OnGuard - now OnGuard 2009 version - with complete range of hardware and software. This is quite a high-end system with a lot of functionalities and big capability. Many big companies are using Lenel OnGuard or changing to Lenel OnGuard.

                      We use a lot of Lenel, Hirsch, and Prowatch. My personal favorite is Lenel it is really versatile and has a lot of different systems that can integrate well with it. We have a lot of customers that use Lenel and are very happy with it the only downside is they charge for everything because they are a software company.
