Austin – September 19, 2006 – BlueWave Security, The Wi-Fi Lock and Security Company, announces the successful launch of an end-to-end physical access control solution based on the IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) wireless standard. The company, along with distribution partner, Clark Security Products, has completed initial rollout and pilot phases of the BlueWave Security solution to the security dealer channel. Building on this momentum, BlueWave is conducting a two-month, twenty city, nationwide series of dealer training sessions, reaching hundreds of security dealers and integrators. BlueWave Security will also be featured in the Clark Security Products booth at the ASIS trade show in San Diego, September 25th-27th, and featuring the next generation of access control.

"In the months of June, July and August, BlueWave Security trained and certified approximately 15 dealers in Texas and California to install the BlueWave access control solution," said Mance Harmon, Founder and CEO of BlueWave Security. "These dealers have installed our product on dozens of doors with absolutely no technical problems or failures. As a result, BlueWave Security has very satisfied customers placing subsequent orders."

"We are honored and excited to be the first distributor, training base and sales support for BlueWave Security to security dealers across the U.S.," said Marshall Merrifield, President and CEO of Clark Security Products. "We are pleased at the significant response from our initial trainings and the opportunity to provide a cost savings access control system to our customers."

"Dallas Baptist University (DBU) required a cost effective upgrade to our access control security system," said Charlie Bradley, Maintenance Supervisor of DBU. "The BW solution is non-proprietary, easily connects to our Wi-Fi network and is half the price of a wired system." "DBU is very pleased with the results and will continue to deploy the BlueWave Security solution across our campus in the coming months."

BlueWave has successfully entered the security market with the BlueLink Wi-Fi controller, BlueView access control software, an established national service group and distribution channel to support it's next generation access control solution. BlueWave's panel-less system works with any standard industry locking device or electronic card reader using secure wireless communications, and substantially reduces installation costs by eliminating long, home run wire pulls. Product packages are available for both small to medium sized businesses (SMB) and enterprise-class customers across a vast array of industries including: Commercial, Government Municipalities, Healthcare, Industrial, Institutional, Retail and Transportation.
