Studio Technologies Introduces Model 391 Dante Alerting Unit at NAB 2018 | #TpromoCom #Intercom #Communications #Security | Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, will introduce a unique new product to strengthen its intercom offerings at NAB 2018 (Booth C7550). The new Model 391 Dante Alerting Unit offers both visual and audible indications that operator attention is being requested. The unit can be used in conjunction with Dante Audio over Ethernet-based intercom beltpacks and user stations that support call light functionality. Housed in a compact enclosure, the tabletop, Power over Ethernet (PoE) unit offers extensive configuration choices to optimize alerting performance. The unit is ideal for a wide range of theater, corporate, industrial, and broadcast applications where party-line and 4-wire intercom is utilized.
“The Model 391 builds on the basic capabilities found in the standard party-line intercom ‘beacon’ or ‘strobe’ devices and adds a broad range of new and enhanced features,” says Gordon Kapes, President of Studio Technologies. “Not all production personnel and technicians are able to stay ‘on headset’ and may need to be alerted when their presence on an intercom channel is needed. The Model 391 can give them a range of visual and audio prompts, allowing them to respond quickly to an intercom call request.”

Trove™ Access and Power Integration Solution Increases Installation Efficiencies
Brooklyn, NY (March 21, 2018) – Altronix and ZKTeco USA have recently teamed up to deliver a new access control and power integration solution that simplifies board layout and wire management, greatly reducing installation and labor costs. Designed and manufactured to seamlessly integrate with ZKAccess C3 and inBio access control panels, Trove2Z2 provides the versatility and flexibility to easily configure and install access systems.
“Our collaboration with ZKTeco USA provides system designers and installers with a highly efficient access control integration solution that makes installations faster, easier and ultimately more profitable,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corporation.
Trove2Z2 is scalable to accommodate up to 32 doors. The removable backplane allows you to assemble and test your system prior to installation, saving time onsite, and reducing overall costs.
As noted by Larry Reed, CEO of ZKTeco USA, “Our ongoing goal at ZKTeco is providing customers with innovative yet simple ways to help further reduce the total cost of ownership when installing access control systems. Prior to Trove2Z2, manually running individual wire for large multi-door projects could be a challenge. However, thanks to this integration, our customers can now consolidate all their wiring which results in dramatic reductions in both installation time and materials. We greatly value our strategic partnership with Altronix and thank them for helping our customers.”
The Trove2Z2 Access Control and Power Integration Solution includes an enclosure, backplane, tamper switch, mounting hardware, and cam lock, along with ample room to accommodate back-up batteries.

Jason Calacanis says ADT the Loser With Ring – Amazon Deal | #TpromoCom #Amazon #Riing #ADT | Amazon announced Tuesday it was buying the smart doorbell maker. The deal is worth a reported $1 billion and could help the company jump an important hurdle in its Amazon Key delivery business.
“Jason Calacanis claims that the Amazon Ring deal is a knee buster for ADT from a financial standpoint and he cites the ‘thousands of dollars’ and ‘$100 a month’ fees charged by ADT as why people ‘hate that company.’ The truth of the matter is, ADT installs residential systems for next to nothing and they subsidize it with a monthly that might be a bit higher than traditional alarm companies, but certainly is not $100 a month out of the gate,” says Al Colombo, a 30-plus trade publication journalist. “You be the judge in this story and I’m opening up the comment section on this news item for you to voice your opinions, or send an email to email@example.com.”
