Tyco Security Products is proud to announce that the Kantech access control product line is celebrating its 30th year, marking a history of innovation, integrity, and usability, to make it one of the most well-known and respected access control brands in the market currently. From its first KT-100 and KT-200 door controllers to its integrated INTEVO, its complete security solution, and KT-1 door controller with single button enrollment, Kantech has redefined the user experience for small to medium-sized businesses globally by offering innovative and technologically progressive solutions that are easy to deploy, configure, and manage.
Evolution Of Kantech Access Control
Since its beginnings in 1986, Kantech has incorporated the latest technological innovations into security applications that are intuitive for the user regardless of their security expertise. As access control has evolved from a standalone security application into an important business tool for many organizations, Kantech focused on providing full-featured solutions that maintain a streamlined user experience and intuitive installation for its installers.
“As a systems integrator who has been in business for more than 25 years, I can attest that Kantech has mastered the art of taking a new technology and reinterpreting it in a way that makes it accessible and easy to use,” said Jean Rho, owner and founder of systems integrators Technilogic Technical Consultants, Inc., based in Montreal. “At the same time, the company has developed a reputation for product integrity. I still support customers using the KT-200 door controller, which was released 25 years ago. That’s a real testament to Kantech’s products’ quality.”

For its partners, Kantech has streamlined set-up and installation and reduced costs for its partners by pioneering Access Control Starter Kits to include all of the components needed to deploy a system. Through Tyco Security Products’ Connected Partner Program, systems integrators and distributors are also able to integrate technologies from third-party partners.
