If you are looking at a new product line to get away from DSC (most companies are! wink ) check out Paradox. The old stuff was garbage but I have just used their new panels a few times. The way the access control is integrated into the system blows away the DSC/Kantech. They also have a real nice VFD keypad with a built in prox reader. Another cool feature - you can program your company name into the LCD keypad to be the screen saver so to speak.

How much is Burtek paying you? wink Naw, I'm sure the Paradox is OK. I remember when Tri-ed took the DSC product away from SSI they came around touting the Paradox stuff. At that time I thought it seemed a little flakey.

I used to install the Silent Knight 4820 for access control. It was an alright product, but there wasn't much in terms of end-user software for it. I liked it because you could write "scripts" to make the thing do just about whatever you wanted it to.

Yep, I agree Toner. SSI tried to stay a float after that with Paradox, and it was flakey. If it wasn't for the Burtek take over, I'm sure they would have been gone. The Tri-ed/Tyco/ADT thing really made a lot of companies drop DSC pretty quick. Why would they buy from their competition? I really like the new Paradox though, they have come a long way. The company I use to work for went to Ademco from DSC, it's sort of in the same situation now though with Honeywell/Chubb.

I went to the security show in Vegas last year and there are just so many panels now. It's hard to pick one now, especially one that has good integrated user friendly access control.

Has anyone looked at the DSX/Radiotronics combo lately? They were supposed to jump forward about 3 or 4 years ago. Been out of the loop since.

For access control, try HIRSCH. It is the most stable distributed processing system out there and also DOD certified for line supervision on the alarm inputs.

Hi scot43,
Here in Canada; police, ambulance, and court houses are using a lot of the Hirsch product. The main reason is the scramble pad. For those on the board that are unfamiliar with this keypad, it is a normal 3X4 matrix keypad with a start button. You would push the start button and the buttons light up with their numbering in no particular order. Everytime you push the start button, the keys are randomly changed again. This way if someone was watching you, they would not be able to determine your code by location on the pad. Very cool concept and the unit looks good and seems pretty rugged. Unfortunately, here in Canada there are only a couple of authorized dealers (I have done some contract service for the one) so it seems to be pretty much locked on to the government stuff.
