Time for end users to migrate to Integriti as Concept reaches End of Life

18 June 2020

INTEGRATED ACCESS control system manufacturer Inner Range has announced that customers with Concept systems should now migrate swiftly to Integriti as Concept has reached End of Life. The award-winning Integriti is compatible with 95% of Concept hardware so migrating is easy, efficient and extremely cost-effective and can be done at only a fraction of the cost of an entire system replacement.

Inner Range first announced Concept was nearing End of Life in January last year. Some Concept parts are still available to buy and Inner Range is currently continuing to provide technical support for existing customers, repairing or replacing parts from existing stock or suitable alternatives as necessary.

However, the system’s underlying technology is no longer economical to maintain in comparison with modern platforms like Integriti. On that basis, the manufacturer is now urging customers to migrate before parts become obsolete.

Concept systems use Insight software. Insight follows the same End of Life timeline as Concept.

Tim Northwood, general manager at Inner Range, said: “Concept was our flagship product and first launched in 1989, so it’s had a good innings and we remain very proud of its legacy. We gave notice 18 months ago that Concept was reaching End of Life and we are renewing our call for any remaining Concept customers who have not yet migrated to move to our Integriti system. We’ll continue to provide technical support for Concept users where we can, but eventually we’ll reach a point where it’s no longer possible to source suitable parts so we want to help customers secure their systems for the long term. Integriti is a brilliant product for small, medium and enterprise spaces and offers a very cost-effective migration path for our Concept customers.”

Integriti is an award-winning intelligent integrated security solution ideal for managing and controlling single and multiple sites at the local, national and global levels.

The benefits for Concept users migrating to Integriti include more integrations with current manufacturers for security, building automation, people and business continuity processes, superb graphics, enhanced reporting, more flexibility around global programming and permissions as well as being compatible with current and future IT platforms, such as Windows and Vista.

Concept 2000 was designed by three of the four founders of Inner Range: Doug Frazer, David Baughan and Alan Winch. The system was updated to the Concept 3000 and later the Concept 4000, which have been installed around the globe.
