This Week's News

UNION offers maximum protection with keyMASTER

* UNION-KeyMASTER.jpgUNION has announced its premium and comprehensive new master key cylinder range, keyMASTER, delivering a long-lasting patent life for maximum protection.

Patent protection is a must-have feature for master key systems, stopping unauthorised replacement keys from being legally cut or made by unapproved partners. With the new keyMASTER range patented until 2036, architectural ironmongers and locksmiths can rest assured that only authorised partners can supply replacement keys, and these will always be cut from genuine blanks. In addition, both keyMASTER’s key and cylinder are protected by two patented features, essentially doubling up the key copy protection credentials of the platform. 

Hanwha Techwin Europe launches TNV-7011RC anti-ligature camera with wide FOV

* Ligature-safe-vidcam.jpgHanwha Techwin has launched the TNV-7011RC, a compact and anti-ligature corner mount camera that offers a wide field-of-view (FOV) up to 3MP resolution and 30fps. The camera is the latest addition to the Wisenet T range, which is designed for challenging environments. 

The TNV-7011RC offers a compact and aesthetically attractive design that fits neatly into room corners and lifts, and it is built to make it impossible for ligatures to be tied around it or for it to be easily ripped off a wall. The camera comes with Hallway View to enable operators to monitor tall and narrow spaces like corridors. It additionally features Dark IR 940nm of up to 10 metres, to help with monitoring very dark areas.
