Metal Detector

A hand-held pinpointing detector from Garrett Metal Detectors of Garland, Texas, can precisely and rapidly pinpoint buried and hidden metallic objects, weapons, and evidence. The CSI PRO-POINTER, used in conjunction with an effective ground-search metal detector such as Garrett’s CSI 250, is a cost-effective solution for recovery of metallic evidence in crime scene investigations. This lightweight detector features continuous audible and vibrating alarms that increase in intensity based on proximity to the metallic target. Its scraping blade allows the user to rake through the soil while digging for a target. Convenient to carry in its supplied belt holster, it is durable, water-resistant, and includes an LED flashlight to assist during low-light searches. Garrett metal detectors are made in America.

Hard Drive Destruction

MBM Corporation of Charleston, South Carolina, has added the 0101 HDP hard drive punch to its Destroyit business shredder line. Hard drives from discarded computers, printers, and copiers can be destroyed economically to keep digital data safe. It punches a hole completely through the drive to render it unreadable. The drive then falls into a sturdy storage bin for disposal. The unit works on standard hard drives from personal computers, laptops, notebooks, printers, copiers, PDAs, and cell phones. The quiet, powerful, single-phase motor is rated for continuous operation.

Wireless Locks

The modular design of the new Schlage AD-Series from Ingersoll Rand of Carmel, Indiana, lets users adapt to new technologies easily, whether changing credential technologies or networking capabilities. Without replacing the lock, or even taking it off the door, users can upgrade readers and network modules. They can go from standalone, offline locking to a networked access control system by installing a 900 MHz communication module and upgrading the firmware. After linking the lock to a panel interface module, the user can initiate emergency lock/unlock commands throughout the facility and change access rights from a central location. Wireless locks can be added where it was once too costly and cumbersome to replace traditional locks. A new patent-pending feature listens for commands and responds in 10 seconds or less.

Guard Tour System

Morse Watchmans Inc. of Oxford, Connecticut, has created a management tool with its Power­Check Guard Tour System. The system includes a hand-held data re­cord­er, checkpoint stations, and reporting software. The data recorder allows security personnel to input incident codes on site using the built-in keypad and display. Tour-Pro Data Sorting Software is a Windows application that converts the data recorder information into custom reports. The system minimizes paperwork, because it has 99 preset incident codes that can be downloaded to the computer at the end of the tour. The Auto Pilot feature prompts guards to visit the next station and can be programmed for random tour sequences, if desired. Checkpoint stations are designed to blend into any indoor or outdoor environment.
