Inner Range has revealed the winners of a competition, held at IFSEC 2018, to find the fastest programmer of Inception, its access control system.

The winners on each day of the three-day event were John Newbury from Ramtech Electronic, Nik Mihailovs from Antron Security and Brett Evans from Custom Technology Solutions. The trio won an Amazon Echo smart speaker each for their efforts.

Inner Range demonstrated how to use its commissioning checklist for setting up Inception as part of IFSEC’s new ‘Show Me How’ feature, where exhibitors demonstrated to attendees how to install or use their technology.

Programmers were then invited to follow the instructions as quickly as possible for the chance to win a smart speaker.

“Simple and quick”

“The competition was a great talking point and a brilliant way to illustrate how simple – and quick – Inception is to install,” said Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range.

“We’re delighted to announce our worthy winners who all impressed us with their speedy efforts.”

Inner Range also showcased a new feature of another of its access control systems, Integriti, at IFSEC.

The Guard Tour feature which is part of the latest update (V18.1), will enable security managers to organise security tasks in a clearer way as well as track their staff as they perform their duties.

We caught up with Tim Northwood in March to find out the company’s history, its current product range and business model and its plans for expansion.

Inner Range has more than 30 years’ experience with more than 150,000 installations globally.
