In our last video on the ACT Enterprise access control system, we spoke about the inbuilt features that can directly help you in your legal and social obligations both now and in the future in relation to COVID-19.
2020 has been a trying time for all of us, the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has presented a challenge to communities and businesses everywhere.

It’s always good to perform some basic power calculations before specifying or purchasing a suitable power supply (or power supplies) for your project.
So you have a number of devices (cameras, locks, detectors, etc) that you need to terminate and power up – you could just connect them all to the same set of terminals on your power supply or (if there were too many cables to fit in the terminals) connect up using a piece of terminal strip and just parallel them all – that would be a bit messy and time consuming, but would probably work.
