ELECTRONIC Development Sales (Australia) is now a platinum distributor for the entire HID range, including iClass SE, Indala, HID Prox, SEOS, EdgeEVO and VertX Panels. 

“Many integrators may not know that EDSA distributes not just Indala but all of HID’s range, iClass SE, HID Prox, Seos, also the EdgeEVO and VertX panels, and we are talking with potential partners on software development to allow us to deliver a complete access control solution,” said Anthony Loh, general manager at Electronic Development Sales (Australia).

“HID’s VertX control panel is widely used in Asia and the pricing is very competitive for systems up to 30-doors, while the EdgeEVO is a 2-door controller that is also very competitive. Being IP-based, HID controllers are very flexible and highly customisable.” 

“We are a platinum partner of HID and one of the largest distributors of iClass SE and that’s because we listen to our customers and can tailor a reader/card solution for their specific needs – it’s not just a reader and a card, you can do a lot of different things with encryption keys and programming multiple credentials on the one card,” Loh said. 

“People don’t realise it’s not just taking a reader out of a box and installing it. We’ve done many sites that have incorporated considerable customisation to handle specific requirements of an installation, which requires the right configuration.”

According to Loh, HID’s SEOS solutions, which employ smart mobile devices as access control credentials via Bluetooth are another strength of the HID range, allowing end users to decrease the time it takes to issue or revoke a credential and to eliminate the cost of managing huge libraries of credentials in sites like universities.

Other products EDSA distributes include MorphoAccess fingerprint/vein, Schlage hand geometry and Iris ID iris biometric readers. Clients include the likes of highly respected integrators Fredon, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, Chubb, Siemens, Eaton and Stanley. ♦
