Access Control

Gateway for installers

TDSi, the access control manufacturer, has launched its ‘Gateway’ product training for installers. The firm says that Gateway has been designed to ensure that TDSi’s Authorised, Gold and Platinum level installers have all they need to install, maintain and upgrade the necessary elements of TDSi’s range of access products.



TDSi’s Managing Director, John Davies, says: “Gateway offers full access to TDSi’s training and knowledge base so engineers have all the necessary information to proactively manage their own installations, ensuring the highest levels of expertise and streamlining the process for both them and their customers. As a company we offer a wide range of products which we sell exclusively through our partners and they are an absolutely vital part of our sales team, so we continue to ensure they have access to everything they need to make the workflow even more streamlined and successful.”


The firm says that its Gateway – Access to Knowledge is to help partners to achieve the specific modules required to progress to the next level of competency. To be granted ‘Authorised’ certification installers have to complete modules in TDSi’s core products which are:

•    SOLOgarde single-door controller,

•    MICROgarde single and two-door controllers,

•    EXcel Controllers for mid to large scale solutions,

•    EXpert highly flexible and scalable controllers,

•    Readers (card and biometric systems)

•    Software Toolkit

•    EXgarde PRO advanced access control and alarm integration software.


Installers looking to qualify for ‘Gold’ certification have to complete additional modules on:

•    EXgarde PRO integration with other systems such as Microsoft Active Directory and Texecom Intruder Panels,

•    TIMEgarde web-based access control and time and attendance software,

•    TDSi people counting and tailgating detector systems.


‘Gold’ partners can then progress to ‘Platinum’ certification by completing a further module on TDSi’s VUgarde range to complete the portfolio of Access Control and CCTV products. For flexibility TDSi offers the VUgarde module as a stand-alone option allowing installers to achieve ‘Gold – CCTV’ certification separately.
