Smart Strategies for Selecting Switches & Push Buttons

This class will take a step-by-step look at selecting the correct switches and push buttons as part of an access control solution. We discuss the differences between normally open (NO) and normally closed (NC) switch contacts and how they relate to the electrified hardware being used to secure the opening. We will briefly discuss various options – like single pole/double throw (SPDT), double pole/double throw (DPDT) - as well as present multiple use-case examples and applications. This class is eligible for 1 credit hour: attendees may receive a certificate of completion (as requested).

Electromechanical Touchless Solutions and Applications

This course provides an in-depth look at what you need to know to create a touchless solution using hardware and accessories from Adams Rite, Alarm Controls, and ASSA ABLOY Electronic Security Hardware. During the training session, we'll review key considerations for going from mechanical to electrified hardware and switches to create a touchless or “touch-less” solution, like existing hardware, the door's function, the opening's surroundings, and, of course, codes. With an emphasis on real-world applications, this class adds context to the typical features/benefits product-centric conversation. This class is eligible for 1 credit hour: attendees may receive a certificate of completion (as requested).
