Integrated access control systems manufacturer Inner Range has urged that its myriad end user customers with Concept systems should now migrate to Integriti as Concept nears end of life. The award-winning Integriti solution is compatible with Concept so migration is an easy, efficient and extremely cost-effective option and one that comes at only a fraction of the cost of an entire system replacement.

Concept systems and parts are available to buy until the end of April this year. Inner Range will continue to provide technical support for existing customers, repairing or replacing parts from existing stock or suitable alternatives as necessary. However, the system’s underlying technology is no longer economical to maintain in comparison with modern platforms such as Integriti, and Inner Range has found it increasingly difficult to source the required electrical components.

Concept systems use Insight software. Insight follows the same end of life timeline as Concept.

Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, informed Risk Xtra: “We owe much of our success to the Concept system and we remain very proud of our flagship product. However, technology is always moving forward. Integriti is a brilliant product for enterprise spaces and offers a very cost-effective migration path for our Concept customers. We’ll continue to provide technical support for Concept users, but we’re now urging them to migrate to Integriti. This will future-proof their system and afford them access to a whole host of additional benefits.”

Integriti is an intelligent integrated security solution ideal for managing and controlling single and multiple sites at local, national and global levels. The benefits for Concept users of migrating to Integriti include more integrations with current manufacturers for security, building automation, people and business continuity processes, excellent graphics, enhanced reporting and more flexibility around global programming and permissions as well as being compatible with current and future IT platforms (eg Windows and Vista).

Concept 2000 was Inner Range’s flagship system. It was designed by three of the four founders of Inner Range, namely Doug Frazer, David Baughan and Alan Winch. First installed in 1989, the system was updated to the Concept 3000 and later the Concept 4000. Thousands of Concept systems have been installed around the globe.
