RedCrater has in-depth knowledge of the leading access control systems; Interlogix Forcefield and Facility Commander Wnx, and Cardax FT. We are fully conversant with the architecture of these systems and their programming interfaces, and also of related technology (such as HID access cards and readers). This unique combination of expertise enables us to provide valuable advice to any organisation wishing to extend the usefulness of their access control system.

RedCrater can advise on solutions which will enhance these systems including; integration with HR databases, applications which interface with the event handling of respective systems (such as paging systems), and custom reporting and custom user interface applications. This may involve recommendations for the application of existing products and technologies available, or could extend to specifications for a complete custom built solution.

Our consulting process usually begins with a free no-obligation discussion with our Security Solution Specialist. In this discussion we aim to gain a good understanding of your business and of your specific security system needs. We will present ideas to you of possible solutions to meet your requirements.

If you then decide to pursue a solution further, time spent working on the detail of your solution thereafter is chargeable.

Once you have decided to engage us in a consultancy role we typically move through the following stages:

  • Gather any additional information from you on your specific requirements. This may involve on-site analysis and obtaining information from vendors of your systems.
  • Investigate available technology that will comprise the best solution for you using either ‘off the shelf’ products or custom built software.
  • Present you with a written project description (specifications document) which outlines the solution, the hardware and/or software components and an estimated price.
  • Revise the detail of the project description based on your feedback and refine the project cost estimate if necessary.

At this stage you may decide to move ahead with the solution presented to you by contracting us to deliver the solution.

RedCrater’s Security Solution Specialist has first-hand knowledge of the architecture of leading access control systems and has recently assisted the following organisations with their physical access control needs:

  • Meridian Energy
  • NZ Parliament
  • Pacific Steel
  • Vale Inco Nickel
  • Westpac

RedCrater prides itself in our proactive approach to designing solutions that provide the best possible outcome for our customers.
