The new generation of Storm keypads with HID contactless technology will offer enhanced security with dual authentication
The new generation of Storm keypads with HID contactless technology will be unveiled at Intersec 2015

Back in the year 2000, Storm’s AXS StrikeMaster keypads were voted No.1 by professional security installers. These award winning keypads have been a firm favorite ever since. Their durability and reliability built a reputation for being the “fit and forget” access control product.

As Storm prepare to announce their new product line up for 2015, news emerges that they will introduce a new generation of keypads with integrated Genuine HID® contactless technology. These keypads will offer enhanced security with dual authentication. A combination of PIN entry and presentation of a contactless card requires both knowledge and possession to achieve authorized access.

Designated as the AXS S40 and S40i, the new products will be seen for the first time during January at Intersec in Dubai, with first customer shipments anticipated in April.

Developed to meet new accessibility standards, the keypads feature bold keytop characters permanently marked onto full size keys. Their excellent tactile response and tactile delineation make these keypads ideal for use by those with sensory or mobility impairment. Optional keytop illumination ensures they are suitable for use in dark or partially lit locations. Impact resistant and sealed against the ingress of water and dust, these keypads are rated for continuous use in both outdoor and indoor locations.

Pairing the legendary durability of Storm keypads with HID Global’s industry leading contactless technology creates a new gold standard for an access control interface. “Storm’s adoption of Genuine HID technology provides customers with additional choice and options for improved accessibility” said Thierry Roz, Director, EMEA Embedded Business Development. “Access for those with impaired vision or restricted mobility is seen as much more than a compliance issue. It is a basic human consideration.”

Storm’s AXS StrikeMaster, StrikeMaster ES and the AXS S40 keypads can be seen at:

  • Intersec 2015, Dubai, 18th - 20th January, Booth S1-E48
  • ISC West, Las Vegas, April 15th - 17th 2015, Booth 31096
