Rec Xpress 24/7 Fitness Centres Install Inner Range Integriti

VIC Watch Security has undertaken an Inner Range Integriti security management system upgrade for Melbourne’s Rec Xpress 24/7 Fitness Centres. The solution supports 12,000 cardholders, is spread across 3 sites and integrates with a Hikvision video surveillance system.

24-hour fitness centres are wonderfully convenient, giving busy customers the opportunity to wedge in a workout at any time of the day or night. But every 24-hour business needs to think extra hard about security and safety. For Rec Xpress 24/7 Fitness Centres, the ideal solution had to manage access, report intrusion and duress events, as well as integrating video monitoring with event recording.

Inner Range SIFER Reader

Inner Range SIFER Reader

The SIFER card reader is a new smart card reader designed and manufactured by Inner Range. It is a multi-drop RS-485 based reader that employs 128-bit AES encryption from the card through to the door module. SIFER readers utilise the Mifare DESfire EV1 card format.

ONE of the access control solutions that caught my eye at Security 2014 in Melbourne was Inner Range’s new SIFER RS-485 reader. It wasn’t the first time I’d seen SIFER – I got a look at the prototype a couple of months before the exhibition. It’s an important step from Inner Range, in my opinion, positioning the company as a true Tier 1 access control solutions manufacturer.

Inner Range WideBody Enclosure Review

Quenten Knoll (l) and Vin Lopes of Inner Range

Inner Range’s new WideBody enclosure is a step forward for the company in a number of ways. Fundamentally, it allows the installation of 8 doors and 16 readers in a single housing with plenty of expansion and lashings of onboard battery backup. 

WANDERING around the engineering department at access control manufacturer Inner Range in Melbourne with CEO Vin Lopes is an enjoyable experience. All around us team members are working on new products that expand the company’s thoroughly-proven technology suite. As well as taking a looking at Inner Range’s cloud-based Webtegriti, a new 8-zone expander module and a project (it was the new SIFER reader) about which I’m sworn to deepest secrecy, I get a look at the new Integriti WideBody Enclosure. It’s a simple piece of kit in some ways but it has to be seen in context – as an extension of cost-effective applications of Integriti.
