San Diego – September 25, 2006 – BlueWave Security, The Wi-Fi Lock and Security Company, and INTELLIKEY Corporation announce a solution bundle comprised of the BlueView access control software, the BlueLink Ethernet or Wi-Fi door controller and the INTELLIKEY Mortise / Rim cylinder. The solution bundle enables standard mortise locks to be easily converted to centrally managed, access-controlled locks using the customer’s existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet data network. The customer simply replaces the existing cylinder with the INTELLIKEY cylinder, connects the cylinder to the BlueLink controller and the BlueLink controller to the existing data network. The BlueLink Ethernet controller supports Power-Over-Ethernet, and therefore does not require an external power source. The BlueLink Wi-Fi controller uses the IEEE 802.11 standard for wireless communications and supports both the WEP and WPA wireless security standards.

"BlueWave is delighted to be partnered with INTELLIKEY to provide an industry first, Wi-Fi and Ethernet-managed mortise cylinders,” said Mance Harmon, Founder and CEO of BlueWave Security. “BlueWave brings to the world of physical security the technology and expertise to enable a new generation of Wi-Fi and Ethernet-based access control. INTELLIKEY cylinders are specifically designed as replacements for most standard cylinder types. In partnership, these two technologies offer all the benefits of a fully-managed, access controlled door for half the cost.”

“This is a great opportunity to enhance the INTELLIKEY product line by combining our expertise in physical security and access control with proven communications technology to offer our customers superior capabilities at a price that wouldn’t have been possible just a few years ago,” said INTELLIKEY General Manger, Singh Chhatwal. “We’re very excited about this partnership.”

The solution bundle will be distributed through Clark Security Products beginning in the fourth quarter of this year, and a demonstration of the solution can be viewed in both the INTELLIKEY and Clark Security Products exhibits at ASIS, hosted in San Diego, September 25th - 27th, 2006.
