Inner Range is reminding customers with Concept systems that its stock of parts is rapidly depleting with some items now down to single figures.
The security system designer and manufacturer first announced that its Concept system was nearing End of Life in November 2018. Many customers have migrated easily to Inner Range’s Integriti product at only a fraction of the cost of an entire system replacement.
However, the company remains concerned some customers have not yet migrated and may find themselves in a difficult situation when replacements are required if parts have become obsolete.
Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, said: “We want to support our customers as much as we possibly can, but the reality is that, very soon, we will not have replacement parts available. For some items, we’re already close to stock exhaustion.”
He added: “Our technical support team will continue to try to assist customers, but there’s a risk we might not be able to supply service replacements in the near future. Ultimately, that could put people and locations at risk if their security system isn’t functioning properly.”
In conclusion, Northwood said: “We are now urging any remaining Concept customers to migrate to Integriti, which is easy, efficient and extremely cost-effective and will secure their system for the longer term.”
Inner Range’s award-winning Integriti system is compatible with 95% of Concept hardware so migrating is very straight forward and cost-effective.
Integriti is ideal for managing and controlling single and multiple sites at the local, national and global levels. Benefits for Concept users migrating to Integriti include more integrations with current manufacturers for security, building automation, people and business continuity processes, enhanced graphics and reporting, more flexibility around global programming and permissions as well as being compatible with current and future IT platforms (such as Windows and Vista).
Concept 2000 was Inner Range’s flagship product and first launched in 1989. It was designed by three of the four founders of Inner Range: Doug Frazer, David Baughan and Alan Winch.
The system was updated to the Concept 3000 and later the Concept 4000, which have been installed around the globe. However, the system’s underlying technology is no longer economical to maintain in comparison with modern platforms like Integriti.
