1985:

MS800 series of door and gate controllers.

1986:
KP2 access control keypad allowing for easy changes of two independent PIN numbers and various options via the keyboard.

1989:
NS2000 Two door Access Control System. This system can interface Mag Stripe, Wiegand, Proximity, Button readers and keypads. It provides a communications facility for use with PCs, direct connected or via dial-up modem.

1990:
KP200 RS485 Multi-drop Access Control System utilising PIN codes using an MS-DOS based PC or another KP200 Master to centrally program up to 31 remote KP200 keypads.

Park Area Network (PAN) Fully integrated, multiple site, independent field stations with duplex communication capability through twisted pair, private rented telephone line, audio or digital radio. Programming is achieved via a P.C. to an independent system controller. The system controller maintains full communication with the field without the need for a constant logical or physical connection with the P.C.

1994:
Microprocessor controlled PWM lift door controller. Replacing unreliable analogue controllers, this product provides absolutely accurate and repeatable performance across all units thus eliminating time staking and tedious calibration.

1995:
The Garden Island Powerhouse alarm mimic panel provides a solid backbone for all applications requiring central annunciation of remote alarms and control functions. With access to at least 512 fully scripted event points with real time data logging this panel can be utilized in broad applications such as nurse call, alarm monitoring, and multiplexing.

1996:
Airkey ultra high security rolling key encryption remote access control transmitter and receiver. This systems allows individually identified remote control transmitters to be used in place of fixed magnetic stripe or Wiegand proximity technology access control card systems. Utilising state of the art 64 bit rolling key encryption guarantees the system is immune from external hacking either by attempted duplication of keys or re-transmission of captured signals.

1997:
NS2000 PC control software. Linked via RS232 cable or modem to a single or multiple NS2000 access controllers, this fully integrated PC application allows complete centralised control. With up to 50 NS2000 controllers connected, as many as 100 access control readers and doors can be controlled with full database storage including all event history, emergency muster and anti-passback applications.
1997:
VLE1500 video line extender. The VLE1500 Video Line Extender allows for the transmission of full colour composite video through up to 1500m of unshielded twisted pair cable. Powered from 9V to 24V AC or 12V to 35V DC enables total flexibility for all commercial applications. The transmitter has adjustable high frequency pre-emphasis gain while the receiver features adjustable high frequency gain and adjustable broadband gain. This combination allows for fine brightness, contrast and colour adjustments to be made regardless of cable length or capacitance.

2001:
Airkey Transponder. An extension of the already successful Airkey transmitter brings the addition of an integrated contact-less and powerless transponder circuit which allows these Airkeys to act as transmitters as before AND proximity type transponders with secure non-volatile memory.

2002:
KP2EL. The addition of an electro-luminescent keypad brings a ground breaking improvement to the KP series of keypads. The state of the art electro-luminescent keypad allows the keypad to remain visible in all lighting conditions including total darkness.

2004:
AKTX4, 4 Channel Airkey Transmitter. The extension of the Airkey range of transmitters and receivers to a 4 channel system doubles the outputs available while maintaining backwards and forwards compatibility with all current products.

2004:
KP4AK. The 4 channel wireless battery powered access keypad introduces unparalleled installation flexibility. Four 4 digit codes can be used to trigger each one of the 4 relays of any standard AKRX44 series Airkey receiver. Fully sealed and surface mountable, the KP4AK provides the ultimate in installation convenience without compromising security.

2007:
AKRXGSM. Combining a normal Airkey receiver with a powerful GSM module enables any gate/door or alarm panel to be triggered by both Airkeys and mobile or fixed telephones. The receiver can be triggered by simply phoning the GSM module. Remote administration using SMS sent via PC software or manually on a mobile phone allows Airkeys to be added or deleted without having to physically travel to the receiver's location.

2007:
AKRX42-SX. The next generation extended memory standalone Airkey receivers allow up to 4095 Airkeys to be stored in one receiver (more than 20 times the 340 slot capacity of normal Airkey receivers). An innovative shell sorting algorithm allows the receiver to verify any one of the 4000+ stored transmitters in much less time than it takes a normal receiver to verify any one in 340 transmitters stored conventionally.

2008:
AKMAN. The AKMAN allows normal and advanced editing of the contents of all non-Wiegand receivers via a PC or Notebook computer. Simple PC software enables the addition of user names, addresses etc. to be included in a database to simplify the identification and deletion of lost or stolen transmitters. The same software also allows for the easy management of multiple backup files.

2010:
AK2TX6, 6 Channel Airkey Transmitter. The extension of the Airkey range of transmitters and receivers to a 6 channel system further extends the number of outputs available while maintaining backwards and forwards compatibility with all current products.
