We received a lot of feedback from the industry professionals who visited our events at Securika Moscow 2021. We want to thank every speaker and every guest who attended the business event.
Two models, Sigur E2 (for 2 checkpoints) and Sigur E4 (for 4 checkpoints), were presented from the new range of controllers. Both models support connection of a number of sensors to build a comprehensive integrated security system based just on this device.
New Sigur product range demonstration
The controllers are designed as standard form factors and can be mounted on a DIN rail, so that they can be mounted together with other equipment and network devices into specialized cabinets, including heated ones or with ingress protection.
Other new features include extended indication capabilities to indicate the status of installation of the device, connection to the server, etc.
Upgrade to the readers range
In addition to the controllers, Sigur presented at their display an upgraded range of readers, MR100. This is an upgrade to the Sigur MR1 reader, an award-winning device of the international Red Dot Design Award 2020 widely acknowledged by industry professionals.
In the demonstration area, the visitors could also see multi-format MR100 Multi readers that support both Mifare cards and smartphones and also have an additional receiver for EM Marine cards. This will help companies that chose secure authentication seamlessly organize the transfer from one card type to the other.
Demonstration of extended capabilities of the new Sigur MR100 range
One of the most remarkable developments presented at Securika Moscow 2021 was a new version of Sigur software.
Our new software brings greater reliability, greater security, greater performance and greater scalability to the market. We endeavored to give it the widest range of capabilities and maximum flexibility, including from the perspective of the end user of the system.
In early summer, we are launching the beta testing program for one of the features of the new software release. This is a completely redesigned reporting functionality. This will help us collect feedback, refine our development roadmap and add new capabilities to the official release of the software.
