Tri-Ed and ECKey Helps Transform Smartphones into Access Control Credentials

Tri-Ed, a North American independent security distributor, is pleased to welcome ECKey as a new vendor partner.

 Tri-Ed and ECKey Helps Transform Smartphones into Access Control CredentialsECKey long-range prox readers and stand-alone access control systems use Bluetooth rather than older prox card technology so users can look to their Smartphone, tablet or any other Bluetooth device to serve as their key. This eliminates the administrative burden of cards and improves security compliance as people are less likely to share their Smartphone and quickly know when it has been misplaced.

ECKey readers have adjustable read-range that works from 1’- 30’ so they can be mounted on the secure side of the door, away from vandals and the elements, saving installation and maintenance costs. They easily integrate with traditional panel access control systems using Wiegand output and have an on-board audit trail for stand-alone applications.

“We are very excited to have Tri-Ed as our national distributor to help us reach dealers who are ready to graduate from the commodity access control products they are selling today,” noted Jessica Deer, ECKey marketing and support manager. “The costs savings available with ECKey products combined with Tri-Ed’s support are a winning combination.”

"We are pleased to welcome ECKey as a valued vendor partner," added Pat Comunale, president and CEO, Tri-Ed Distribution. "Their progressive access control solutions will enhance and expand the access offerings we provide to our customer base."
