VIKING ELECTRONICS introduced the AES-2000 Accessible Entry System in a joint effort with the city of San Francisco to meet the needs of persons with disabilities. As visitors scroll through the tenant directory, each tenant name appears on the LCD screen and is announced audibly, allowing persons with visual and hearing disabilities to operate the system without outside assistance. The system also provides full operating instructions in visual and audible formats and operates with portable TTY text telephones, so visitors at the entry door can communicate with tenants who are hearing impaired. Designed for apartment and commercial buildings, the device includes capacity for 75 tenants (expandable to 525), two door strike relays and keyless entry.

Scotchshield brand window security film, from 3M, is a clear multilayer polymer film that helps prevent against flying glass shards if glass is broken by a bomb blast, high winds or intentional damage. Instead of being propelled through the air as potentially lethal shards, the glass remains largely held in place by the film. Originally applied to plate glass in buildings within hurricane- and earthquake-prone regions, Scotch-shield has applications in office buildings, embassies and consulates, banking and retail facilities, and transportation systems.

The EX82DX-IP, from EXTREME CCTV, is a high-performance network camera that delivers color-by-day and infrared illuminated monochrome-by-night. The camera creates an "invisible" infrared light whenever the unit's photocell- triggered sensor detects low light conditions. This model can capture and transmit beyond 100 ft of night vision, live-streaming video to any user via the Web. The dual lens and dual CCD sensors eliminate the possibility of focus shift and "infrared bleed" to ensure accurate optics in day and night modes. Applications include the remote monitoring of facilities, substations, heavy equipment, yachts, aircraft, playgrounds, hazardous storage and fueling stations.

ADAMS RITE MANUFACTURING CO. introduces the new MS Maglock, a new class of maglocks that combines the convenience of an electromagnetic lock with the strength of a mechanical lock, all in a small, 6 in. x 23�4-in. package. Unlike normal maglocks, which get larger in size and weight as the strength rating increases, the design of the MS Maglock utilizes a pair of spring-loaded hardened steel mandibles that instantly clamp the armature in the event of a forced entry. With these mechanical jaws engaged, the lock's holding force is 4,000 lbsabout 1,000 times its own weight.
