Futura Software Works With InstaCode, Kreate-A-Key

A new optional software for Kaba Ilco’s Futura key machine allows the Futura to interface with both Instacode™ and Kreate-A-Key™ code programs. Many owners already own these code programs. The software allows locksmiths to bypass the search screens in the “Silca APP” and send jobs directly to the Futura using Instacode and/or Kreate-A-Key software. When using the software to create master keying applications, the information is sent directly to the Futura from the code avoiding the need to again input cut information When the “Cut Key” command is issued from the code software, the cutting job is sent to the “Queue of Jobs” file in the Futura software. The operator can then go to the job queue on the Futura tablet to activate the cutting job. When the cutting job is activated the Futura software will walk the user through the process of loading and cutting the key. Owners should contact their Ilco distributor for additional information and pricing.

Exit Stopper Now Has 4-Channel Voice Receiver

To help solve problems of unauthorized exits and entries of fire or emergency doors, and help stop theft as well, STI now offers the Wireless Exit Stopper with 4-Channel Voice Receiver (STI-V6400WIR4) in nine versions for indoor use. The multifunction alarm is excellent in helping increase workplace security. If the protected door is opened, the Exit Stopper emits an ear piercing alarm (95 or 105 dB) for 30 seconds, three minutes or continuously (as present by the user) and transmits a signal to the 4-Channel Voice Receiver. The voice receiver “speaks” ten tones/tunes and 53 words (in English or Spanish). Up to four tones/tunes or words can be programmed in sequence to identify door status (ex: rear door open, side door alert, emergency exit door open, etc.). The Exit Stopper polycarbonate housing is backed by a three year guarantee against breakage in normal use and one year on electro mechanical and electronic components. 800-888-4784, www.sti-usa.com.
