Southeast Security Products Crowned DoorSnap Champions

Posted by Kerby Lecka on September 15, 2023 at 10:00 AM

SES Generates the Most DoorSnapTM Customer Submissions

Southeast Security Products (https://sesproducts.com), located in Deerfield Beach, Florida, earned year-long bragging rights among SDC’s Door Hardware and Alarm/Electronic Security outside sales rep agencies. From June 1st thru August 31st SES promoted and received the most customer submissions18 - for DoorSnapTM, our award-winning solution for recommending access control locking hardware for door retrofits.

 

DoorSnapTM is included in our Free SDC App and allows customers to send a picture of their retrofit door installation and receive a complimentary access and egress electrified solution recommendation from SDC with product information links and more.

 

For more details, visit: www.sdcsecurity.com/doorsnap.

Concerning DoorSnapTM, SES President, Roy Nilsen says: “We simply show DoorSnapTM to every dealer we can. There is simply no easier way to give a dealer the confidence of specifying a door opening knowing you have the right hardware to get the job done right the first time. It saves dealers time and money and is the easiest value proposition we have in our tool bag…”

Rumor has it that Roy has already reserved a special spot in his display case for the electrified DoorSnapTM trophy being shipped to him this week. When plugged in, the trophy is lit with a rotating palette of colors designed to subliminally encourage more sales on our behalf. Way to go Roy!

Leaders in Latch Retraction

Posted by Kerby Lecka on September 7, 2023 at 10:00 PM

Electric Latch Retraction (ELR)

Since 2012, when SDC launched QuietDuo™ – the first Motorized ELR Kits to convert mechanical exit devices – we’ve been “quietly” leading in electric latch retraction (ELR) upgrades for access control. This includes retrofit solutions for most brands of exit devices, as well as innovative SDC exit devices & mortise lock-sets with factory-installed ELR and automatic door operators with a built-in 1 Amp+ power supply to power them.

With advancements in electric motor technology, the use of a motor for electric latch retraction provides lower current draw, quieter operation, and greater durability over time vs. solenoids.

Size Matters

Posted by Kerby Lecka on June 2, 2023 at 10:00 AM

Mini Integrated Delayed Egress Locks

SDC’s 1581S series mini delayed egress locks are designed to meet the needs of long term care and commercial facilities that require a smaller, less obtrusive, and less expensive delayed egress lock that is better suited for minimum security needs.

The 1581S series delays egress through perimeter exit doors for 15 or 30 seconds, alerts security and personnel to unauthorized egress, and is compatible with access controls and patient wandering and infant tracking systems.
