Terry Shough, Winsted’s general manager, commented: “On behalf of Winsted, I’m delighted to welcome Paul to the business. He’s highly regarded within his field and will be a huge asset to the team, giving us the ability to better service our customers. We’re thrilled to have him on board and wish him every success in his new role.”

Since its inception back in 1963, Winsted has consistently pioneered console design and development. The company’s product concept and design is driven by industry needs and demands, with many equipped ideas suggested by customers and developed with their input.

A dominant force in the US market for 55 years, Winsted expanded into overseas markets in 1975, primarily in England. In 1976, the business also began concentrating its efforts to establish distribution channels in the Middle East.

Winsted’s international distribution was firmly established in 1984 with the formation of Winsted Ltd in the UK. Since then, Winsted Ltd has become a design and manufacturing facility serving the European, Middle East and African markets.

Biometric credentials added to Inner Range’s access control solutions

Inner Range’s access control customers can now benefit from biometric credentials thanks to a new partnership initiated with biometric technology company Zwipe. The new service, which uses clients’ existing card readers, is one of several intelligent integrations that Inner Range will be demonstrating at a free Integration Showcase on April 24 at its European headquarters near Reading.

Other integrators at the event include Morse Watchmans, which combines key locker control and asset management systems with Inner Range’s security solutions, as well as Stentofon (which offers intelligent intercom solutions via Inner Range software).

Tim Northwood, general manager of Inner Range Europe, said: “Integration is at the heart of what we do. Our products allow clients to control access to all manner of places, spaces, systems and products at the local, national and even global levels. Our new partnership with Zwipe is the latest in a long and ever-increasing line of integrations designed to help our customers better control their buildings and systems and streamline their processes. We very much hope that our Integration Showcase will highlight the options and sophistication available with our products and afford potential new clients the opportunity to see them in action.”

The new partnership with Zwipe means that Inner Range’s clients can add fingerprint data to credentials and, crucially, continue to use their existing card readers. They don’t need to buy costly new readers. The system can employ Inner Range’s encrypted Sifer readers and only stores the biometric data on the card rather than in a central database.

Morse Watchmans will be demonstrating how its key control system can integrate with Inner Range products to strengthen security, ensure personnel safety and restrict movement if necessary, as well as improve reporting compliance and reducing damage and resulting lost productivity.

Stentofon will showcase how its intercom solutions integrate with Inner Range products to enable clients ‘to hear, be heard and understood, every time’ by providing interactive graphical representations, status and controls across multiple sites.
